Modification to Post Entry Amendment Process
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has issued a notice in the Federal Register announcing that post entry amendments (PEAs) will no longer be accepted for type 01 and 03 entry summaries that were filed using the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). PEA procedures for entry summaries filed in ACE will no longer be accepted effective September 22, 2011. A post summary correction (PCS) transaction in the ACE Entry Summary, Accounts and Revenue (ESAR IV) will replace a PEA.
CBP also clarifies that that any PEA for Antidumping/Countervailing Duty (AD/CVD) cash deposits (or bond, if allowed) are due with the submission of the PEA.
