Automated Commercial Environment (ACE); Announcement of National Customs Automation Program Test of Automated Procedures for In-Bond Shipments Transiting Through the United States From One Point in Canada to Another Point in Canada
This document announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) plans to conduct a National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test relating to highway movements of commercial goods that are transported in-bond through the United States from one point in Canada to another point in Canada. The NCAP test designates a new filing code in CBP's Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Truck Manifest System to identify the shipment as being part of a joint CBP and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) In-Transit Project and requires test participants to transmit the manifest electronically and to submit an additional data element. The new filing code and additional data element will enable CBP and the CBSA to better track the movement of these goods, to share information about the in-bond movement and to streamline procedures for test participants. This notice provides a description of the NCAP test process, sets forth eligibility requirements for participation, and invites public comment on any aspect of the planned test.

This request for comment is being made pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13).
