ACE Deployment of Statements Delayed
U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that to allow additional time for the testing of statements in the Automated Commercial Environment it is splitting its upcoming ACE deployment into two components.
- As of Dec. 9, ACE filing of the electronic foreign-trade zone application (e214) will be mandatory and manufacturer identification creation capabilities will be deployed.
- From Dec. 9 to Jan. 6 new ACE statement reports REV-101, REV-102, REV-103, and REV-104 will be available for trade validation and testing but will not be actionable. The trade community will continue to file statements in the Automated Commercial Environment until Jan. 6.
- As of Jan. 6 ACE will become the system of record for all statements (except reconciliation statements, which will be delivered Feb. 24).
- No later than Jan. 13 CBP will deploy ACE statement reports with ACE statement data and the legacy ACE account revenue reports universe will no longer be available.
