    Abstract: As of July 23, 2016, the Automated Commercial Environment 
(ACE) is the sole CBP-authorized electronic data interchange (EDI) 
system for processing electronic entry and entry summary filings of 
certain entry types. Pursuant to Executive Order 13659, a deadline of 
December 31, 2016, was established for participating Federal agencies 
to have capabilities, agreements, and other requirements in place to 
utilize the International Trade Data System (ITDS) and supporting 
systems, such as ACE, as the primary means of receiving from users the 
standard set of data and other relevant documentation (exclusive of 
applications for permits, licenses, or certifications) required for the 
release of imported cargo and clearance of cargo for export. See 79 FR 
10655 (February 25, 2014). ACE supports government agencies and the 
trade community with border-related missions with respect to moving 
goods across the border efficiently and securely. Once ACE is fully 
implemented, all related CBP trade functions and the trade community 
will be supported from a single common user interface.
    In order to establish an ACE Portal account, participants submit 
information such as their name, their employer identification number 
(EIN) or social security number, and if applicable, a statement 
certifying their capability to connect to the Internet. This 
information is submitted through the ACE Secure Data Portal which is 
accessible at: http://www.cbp.gov/trade/automated.
    CBP is proposing to add the capability of electronically filing 
protests to ACE. A protest is a procedure whereby a private party may 
administratively challenge a CBP decision regarding imported 
merchandise and certain other CBP decisions. Trade members wishing to 
establish a protest filer account will need to submit the following 
data elements:

1. Organization Information
    a. Protest Filer Number (EIN, SSN, or CBP Assigned Number)

3. Filing Notification Point of Contact
    a. Name
    b. Email address

    Current Actions: CBP is proposing that this information collection 
be extended with a change to the burden hours resulting from the 
addition of a new application for protest filers to establish an ACE 
Portal account. There are no proposed changes to the existing ACE 
Portal application, or changes to the burden hours, for other ACE 
accounts.
    Type of Review: Extension (with change).
