WASHINGTON, October 13 – U.S. Customs and Border Protection has issued an interim final rule amending its regulations to reflect that on Nov. 1 the Automated Commercial Environment will be a CBP-authorized Electronic Data Interchange system. The rule also formally informs the public that the Automated Commercial System is being phased out as a CBP-authorized EDI system for the processing of electronic entry and entry summary filings. In addition, the rule announces the conclusion of the ACE cargo release and the entry summary, accounts and revenue tests with regard to the entry and entry summary requirements that are now part of the CBP regulations. Comments on this rule may be submitted by November 12th. CBP has been developing and testing ACE over the last several years as the successor EDI system to ACS.
