U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that the following capabilities in Automated Commercial Environment Deployment B were successfully implemented Jan. 4 and are performing as expected.

- The cargo release pilot, which was recently opened to all eligible filers of type 01 and type 11 consumption entries in the air transportation mode, was expanded to ocean and rail shipments as well as in-bond processing for partial quantity transactions in the air environment.

- There is a single accept/reject message to filers for cargo release responses from CBP and participating government agencies.

- Entry summary validations, which provide edits for entry summary data received from trade filers and were previously limited to edits for the Harbor Maintenance Tax and tariff classification, have been expanded to simple duty calculations on single Harmonized Tariff Schedule classification entry lines.
