U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced a further postponement of the last primary deployment of core trade processing capabilities in the Automated Commercial Environment, which had been scheduled for July 8.
ACE capabilities being delayed include the following.
- liquidation (other than the previously deployed posting of notices of liquidation on the CBP website)
- processing electronic drawback and duty deferral filings
- reconciliation (eliminating several requirements for participation in the ongoing test, imposing new data requirements, and requiring recon entries to be filed in ACE)
- post-summary corrections (eliminating some requirements, liberalizing certain requirements for filing a PSC, and making it easier for importers to file a PSC for additional entry types)
- periodic monthly statements
- Automated Surety Interface
CBP has determined that areas specific to collections are in need of further testing before these capabilities can be deployed.
CBP has not set a rescheduled deployment date at this time and will announce it in the Federal Register at least 30 days in advance.
