ACE Transition Timeline Update

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has rescheduled the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) transition date of October 29, 2016. The new date will allow CBP stakeholders further preparation time and gives the agency an opportunity to gather public feedback.

This transition includes the mandatory use of ACE for liquidation, drawback, reconciliation, duty deferral, collections, statements, and the Automated Surety Interface. CBP is targeting January 2017 for the revised deployment and mandatory date and will provide additional clarification regarding the precise transition date in the coming weeks.
