Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 191 / Wednesday, October 6, 2021 / Notices and 13-digit Global Local Number (GLN)) for the entry filer and the manufacturer/producer, seller and shipper, and optionally, for the exporter, distributor and packager. The GBI identifiers are the new optional data elements that are being collected to better identify the legal entity that is interacting with CBP. The data collected under the ACE Cargo Release program is intended to reduce transaction costs, expedite cargo release, and enhance cargo security. ACE Cargo Release filing minimizes the redundancy of data submitted by the filer to CBP through receiving carrier data from the carrier. This design allows the participants to file earlier in the transportation flow. Guidance on using ACE Cargo Release may be found at http://www.cbp.gov/ trade/ace/features. It should be noted that ACE Cargo Release was previously called Simplified Entry. Type of Information Collection: Form 3461 Entry/Immediate Delivery (Paper Only). Estimated Number of Respondents: 12,307. Estimated Number of Annual Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 12,307.
