Filing Protests in the New ACE Electronic Protest Module
Webinar: 1.5 CCS Credits
Electronically filing protests with U.S. Customs and Border Protection will become a whole lot easier Aug. 27 when CBP launches its electronic protest filing module (eProtest) in the Automated Commercial Environment web portal. Benefits of using eProtest will include immediately receiving a confirmation date of filing and protest number and the ability to have notifications sent to up to four 4 email addresses, automatically apply for further review by CBP headquarters, monitor old ACS protests, electronically amend protests or provide additional information, respond to CBP requests, and request accelerated disposition. This webinar will help importers, licensed customs brokers, attorneys, sureties, drawback claimants and others understand how to use the new system.
