In a Nov. 4 message to the trade community, U.S. Customs and Border Protection stated that a “one United States government (one USG)” message indicates that the goods have arrived, that all data required for entry has been submitted to the U.S. government, that all participating government agencies that regulate the goods have issued a “may proceed” and that CBP has conditionally released the goods from its custody. This message is based on the data received from the trade and premised on that data being accurate and correct.

According to CBP, a “one USG” message is sent even if there are no PGA lines associated with an entry. However, a “one USG” message is not required for cargo release from CBP custody and there has been no change to the entry status (released) and disposition code (1C) that facilitate release from CBP custody.
