April 27, 2017 Vehicles and Engine EPA Deadline

Per CSMS Message #17-000159 the next phase of the PGA implementation to ACE is EPA regulated Vehicles & Engines (VNE).  Beginning on April 27, 2017 it will be mandatory to either report the electronic data set for EPA Forms 3520-1 and 3520-21 or disclaim reporting.  In order to comply with this new requirement we will need your help.  See CSMS link here:

Please begin by reviewing the attached list of the HTS’s that are flagged as EP3 (VNE data may be required) and determine if your products classified under these HTS’s are regulated by EPA.  If you need assistance determining EPA applicability please review EPA’s guidance that can be found at the below link or contact the EPA Imports Hotline.

If it is determined that your product is regulated then provide the 3520-1 or 3520-21 that is completed and properly signed.  If your research reveals that one of these forms is not required because your product is not regulated by EPA then provide a completed disclaimer statement and select option A.
