ACE Export Manifest Capability to be Subject of Aug. 26 CBP Webinar
U.S. Customs and Border Protection will conduct a webinar Aug. 26 to introduce new functionality being developed for filing electronic export manifest data via the Automated Commercial Environment. The webinar will also address the electronic data interchange message sets that can be used to transmit the manifest data.
CBP states that it is developing automated export manifest functionality for all modes of transportation (air, rail, ocean and truck) and that these developments will be rolled out as pilots over the next year pending publication of final regulation changes removing paper filing as an option and allowing for electronic filing. Air export manifest is currently being coded for a tentative fall 2014 pilot, with rail and ocean pilots tentatively scheduled for early 2015.
Participation in the upcoming webinar is limited to the first 1,000 to register, which must be done here. Following the event, the recorded webinar and accompanying presentation slides will be posted to the “ACE Outreach Events for Trade” page of CBP.gov/ACE.
