This notice announces a change to the application requirements when applying to become an Importer or Broker Account so as to access the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Secure Data Portal (``ACE Portal'') or to participate in any ACE test. Specifically, applicants seeking to establish importer or broker accounts so as to access the ACE Portal, or to participate in any ACE test, are no longer required to provide a statement certifying participation in the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT). Participation in C-TPAT has never been a requirement to establish a carrier account.
