Drawback and Reconciliation Updates for ACE – CBP Announces Deadlines

Mark your calendars! Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced July 8, 2017 as the effective date for transition to make the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) the sole electronic data interchange (EDI) system authorized by the Commissioner of CBP for processing electronic drawback, duty deferral entry and entry summary filings. After the effective date, the Automated Commercial System (ACS) will no longer be a CBP-authorized EDI system for processing these filings.

Additionally, National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) tests regarding Reconciliation, Post-Summary Corrections, and Periodic Monthly Statements will also be made effective July 8, 2017.

Shapiro will continue to monitor the situation and will advise of any important updates.
