Reconciliation Entry Summary Submission is Focus of CBP Guidance
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has issued the following information regarding reconciliation entry summaries (type 09), which may be transmitted to any port and are processed by CBP’s Centers of Excellence and Expertise.
- If the importer is assigned to a Center, the Automated Commercial Environment will assign the reconciliation to that Center.
- If the importer has not been assigned to a Center but has previously filed reconciliations, the importer will continue filing its reconciliation entry summaries at its previously assigned reconciliation port of entry with the appropriate reconciliation team code.
- If the importer is new to filing reconciliation entry summaries and is not assigned to a Center, ACE will assign team number 001 at the port of entry for filing. If needed, CBP personnel will reassign the reconciliation team code to the correct Center for processing.
- To expedite the collection process, CBP recommends that payments for reconciliation entry summaries be filed at the port of entry designated on those entry summaries, as payments made at another port of entry could slow the process.
