ACE TRANSITION OUTAGE DELAYS
Following up on our trade alert dated Friday, January 6 stating that Customs and Border Protection will be deploying new functionality on January 14 to include DRAWBACK, DUTY DEFERRAL, RECONCILIATION, LIQUIDATION, COLLECTIONS and STATEMENTS in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), CBP has announced a delay.
Please note that due to the complexity of this transition, CBP is providing additional time to prepare for the final phase of the above core processing and will provide more information regarding the new deployment date in the near future. It is to be noted however that CBP will post the liquidation notices on CBP.gov effective January 14, 2017 as planned.
