This notice also clarifies bond obligations when a PSC has been filed, CBP’s authority to reject a PSC, and the meaning of certain terms as they relate to the ESAR IV test. DATES: The ESAR IV test modifications will go into effect December 19, 2013, and will continue until concluded by way of announcement in the Federal Register. Comments concerning this notice and any aspect of the test may be submitted at any time during the test period to the address set forth below.

Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Test Programs Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) prototypes are tested in accordance with § 101.9(b) of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR 101.9(b)), which provides for the testing of National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) components. A chronological listing of Federal Register publications detailing ACE test developments is set forth below in section V of this document.

ACE Entry Summary, Accounts and Revenue (ESAR IV) Test Program In a notice published in the Federal Register (76 FR 37136) on June 24, 2011, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a plan to conduct a NCAP test concerning new ACE ESAR IV capabilities (‘‘ESAR IV test’’). The ESAR IV test permitted importers to file post-summary corrections (PSCs) of certain ACE entry summaries using the Automated Broker Interface (ABI). Importers and their brokers were also allowed to use ABI to file PSCs to those pre-liquidation ACE entry summaries that were accepted by CBP, fully paid, and under CBP control. III. Modifications to the ESAR IV Test A. Access by Filers to Entry and PSC Data Under the terms of the original ESAR IV test, as set forth in Subsection II.H of that document (76 FR 37138), the full content of the original entry summary was to be provided only to the filer of that entry summary. A subsequently filed PSC was deemed to fully replace the original entry summary, and full information with respect to the PSC was only available to the filer of the PSC and the filer of the original entry summary did not have access to the new filing. Similarly, if a second PSC was filed, it fully replaced the previously filed PSC and full information was accessible only to the filer of the second PSC. The filer of the original entry summary or the filer of the previously filed PSC were notified that a new replacement entry E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1
