Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Data System Committee of the Trade Support Network is seeking no later than July 30 participants in a new U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ACE/ITDS working group.

ACE will require the trade community to be capable of electronically submitting certain FWS data using the partner government agency message set. FWS and U.S. Customs and Border Protection have identified specific data elements that will need to be submitted by the filer in order to transact business in ACE. The new working group has been tasked with assuring that all technical and data requirements are transitioned to ACE/ITDS successfully. To that end it will review the draft FWS PGA message set guidance and give input on the ITDS impact on business processes for the affected trade. FWS will use the input from the working group to refine the planned message set and business processes as necessary.

The working group will consist of members of the international trade community such as importers and exporters of commodities that are regulated by the FWS, the brokers that process such shipments, the software developers who support the business processes, and representatives from FWS and the CBP team developing the ITDS software system.
