ACE Submission of Import/Export Data for DEA-Regulated Goods Now Mandatory
A Drug Enforcement Administration final rule requiring the electronic submission through the Automated Commercial Environment of required data for the import and export of tableting and encapsulating machines, controlled substances, and listed chemicals took effect Aug. 1. As of that date U.S. Customs and Border Protection began enforcing HTSUS flagging with a reject for import data not provided for such goods, meaning that importers must provide either full DEA message set data or a valid disclaim code. For export data, participating government agency line data must be provided. In addition, Document Imaging System documents are no longer being accepted for the DEA.
