ACE Test for Notice of Arrival of Pesticides and Devices Opened to All Importers
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has opened to all importers a test in which electronic filings of the “Notice of Arrival of Pesticides and Devices” required by the Environmental Protection Agency may be submitted via the Automated Commercial Environment partner government agency message set for type 01 and type 11 commercial entries filed at the ports of Detroit, Port Huron and New York/Newark. This test had been limited to nine importers, but CBP is now encouraging all importers of pesticides and devices to participate to gain greater experience with filing under ACE.
The data elements filed in ACE in this test are those found in the paper EPA Form 3540-1. The test currently includes only entries originating in the ocean and rail environments.
