On August 16, 2017, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a notice in the Federal Register (82 FR 38923) announcing plans to make the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) the sole electronic data interchange (EDI) system authorized by the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for processing electronic Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) admission applications, as of September 16, 2017. The document also announced that, on September 16, 2017, the Automated Commercial System (ACS) would no longer be a CBP-authorized EDI system for purposes of processing these electronic filings. Further, the document announced that the test program would be extended until a decision is reached to implement the program on a permanent basis and/or to conclude the test. Finally, the notice clarified that the list of data elements required for the electronic FTZ admission application must include the ‘‘Zone ID,’’ and reminded test participants that they must provide the data elements ‘‘Steel Import License Number’’ and ‘‘Kimberley Process Certificate Number’’ to CBP.
