ACE Portal Accounts National Customs Automation Program Test Concerning Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Entry Summary, Accounts and Revenue (ESAR III) Capabilities Relating to the Filing and Processing of AD/CVD Entries and Case Management On May 1, 2002, the former U.S. Customs Service, now U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), published a General Notice in the Federal Register (67 FR 21800) announcing a plan to conduct a National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test of the first phase of the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). The test was described as the first step toward the full electronic processing of commercial importations with a focus on defining and establishing an importer’s account structure. The notice announced that importers and authorized parties would be allowed to access their customs data via a webbased Account Portal. The notice set forth eligibility criteria for companies interested in establishing Account Portals accessible through ACE. Subsequent notices revised the eligibility criteria (see General Notice published in the Federal Register on February 1, 2005 (67 FR 5199)) and expanded the universe of eligible participants in the ACE test and the types of ACE Portal Accounts.

In both of the February 4, 2004, General Notices, CBP advised participants that they could designate only one person as the Account Owner for the company’s ACE Portal Account. The Account Owner was identified as the party responsible for safeguarding the company’s ACE Portal Account information, controlling all disclosures of that information to authorized persons, authorizing user access to the ACE Portal Account information, and ensuring the strict control of access by authorized persons to the ACE Portal information. On September 8, 2004, CBP published a General Notice in the Federal Register (69 FR 54302) inviting customs brokers to participate in the ACE Portal test generally and informing interested parties that once they had been notified by CBP that their request to participate in the ACE Portal test had been [Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA–1861– DR; Docket ID FEMA–2008–0018] Arkansas; Amendment No. 2 to Notice of a Major Disaster Declaration AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.
