Automated Commercial Environment (ACE): Change to the Terms and Conditions for Account Access of the ACE Secure Data Portal
On May 16, 2007, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a General Notice in the Federal Register announcing the terms and conditions that must be followed as a condition for access to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Secure Data Portal (ACE Portal). This document revises those terms and conditions regarding the period of Portal inactivity which will result in termination of access to the ACE Portal. This notice provides that if forty-five (45) consecutive days elapse without an Account Owner, Proxy Account Owner, or an Account user accessing the ACE Portal, access to the Portal will be terminated. The time period for allowable Portal activity previously was ninety (90) days. Except for the expansion of the types of Portal Accounts in ACE announced in a General Notice published in the Federal Register on October 18, 2007, all other provisions in the May 16, 2007, Terms and Conditions document remain unchanged and in effect.
