Reconciliation Test On December 12, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a notice entitled ‘‘Modification of the National Customs Automation Program Test Regarding Reconciliation and Transition of the Test from the Automated Commercial System to the Automated Commercial Environment’’ in the Federal Register (81 FR 89486), with an effective date of January 14, 2017. This notice announced modifications to the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test regarding reconciliation, and the transition of the test from the Automated Commercial System (ACS) to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). The modifications eliminated several requirements for participation in the test, imposed new data requirements, and established the PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 4901 requirement that reconciliation entries be filed in ACE regardless of whether the underlying entry was filed in ACS or ACE.

Post-Summary Correction and Periodic Monthly Statement Tests On December 12, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 89482) announcing plans to modify and clarify, effective January 14, 2017, the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test regarding Post-Summary Correction (PSC) claims, and the Periodic Monthly Statement (PMS) test. The modifications made by the notice eliminated or liberalized certain requirements for the filing of a PSC, making it easier for importers to file a PSC for additional entry types, and allowed filers additional time to make a deposit for duties, fees and taxes owed. With regard to the PMS test program, the notice announced the time at which CBP considers a PMS as paid when filers use the Automated Clearing House (ACH) debit process. Subsequently, CBP decided not to implement two of the changes announced in the December 12, 2016 notice. In a notice published in the Federal Register (82 FR 2385) on January 9, 2017, CBP removed the requirement that additional duties, fees and taxes be submitted within three business days of filing a PSC, and limited the restriction of submitting payment to PSC filings declaring an increase of liability for antidumping/ countervailing duties and associated fees and taxes. The notice also removed the prohibition of filing additional PSCs until the duties, fees and taxes are deposited. Like the changes made in the December 12, 2016 notice, these changes were to become effective on January 14, 2017. This notice announces that the effective date for the modifications to the PSC and PMS tests has been delayed until further notice. Dated: January 11, 2017. Brenda B.
