ACE TRANSITION OUTAGE 

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).  With this transition, transactions supporting these capabilities must be filed in ACE and will no longer be accepted in the Automated Commercial System (ACS).

CBP will have an extended ACE outage period for this deployment beginning Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 10pm EST, and targeted to conclude on Sunday, January 15, 2017 at 8am EST. This outage window will affect all ACE applications, including Manifest and Cargo Release. CBP will issue a CSMS to confirm the conclusion of the outage window.

As with every outage window, ACE may take some time to process transactions that are queued prior to and during the outage. CBP will be monitoring incoming transactions and will address any issues encountered, however please be aware that there may be delays in clearances during this time frame.
