ACE Deployment Postponed

Posted June 30, 2017

Under U.S. Customs Issues


CBP is rescheduling the last primary deployment of core trade processing capabilities in ACE, which had been scheduled for July 8, 2017. This deployment includes liquidation (with the exception of the previously deployed electronic posting of the Notices of Liquidation on CBP.gov), reconciliation, drawback, duty deferral, collections and the Automated Surety Interface (ASI).

A statement from the agency says: “We have been conducting ongoing, rigorous testing to ensure these capabilities will operate successfully. Our latest efforts have revealed areas specific to collections that are in need of further testing before these capabilities can be deployed. Consequently, we are postponing the July 8, 2017 deployment, and are in the process of re-planning. We will communicate further information as soon as possible.”

The rescheduled deployment date will be published in a Federal Register notification at least 30 days in advance of the actual deployment/mandatory transition.
