Also, CBP received from DOE or the FTC's proposal, will be conditional (to the importer) to release the goods to make it meet the standard requirements. (U.S. Federal Register Notice)

Now, the U.S. Customs will be able to at a U.S. port to reject non-compliant products immigrants. Only intervention by the DoE or the FTC refused to release of goods can be handed over to importers, but attached a prerequisite: You must conduct rectification to meet the standard requirements.
