ACE Transition for Liquidation, Drawback, Recon, Other Functionality Postponed Again
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has again postponed the mandatory transition of the following capabilities to the Automated Commercial Environment, which had been scheduled for Jan. 14.
- liquidation (although CBP will post notices of liquidation on its website effective Jan. 14)
- duty deferral
CBP has also previously said that importer security filings and the Automated Surety Interface would not be transitioned to ACE on Jan. 14.
CBP states that in consideration of stakeholder feedback and the complexity of the ongoing integration testing it is providing additional time to prepare for the final core ACE deployment and ensure a smooth transition of the above functionality in ACE. CBP intends to provide updated information and a new deployment date in the near future.
