Transition of the Electronic Certification System (eCERT) to an Updated Version (eCERT 2.0)
Document Number: 2022-18214
Type: Notice
Date: 2022-08-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document announces the transition of the Electronic Certification System (eCERT) to an updated version, eCERT 2.0, which will become the sole method for participating in the eCERT process. The updated version includes three new features that will enhance the existing system by implementing additional validations that verify the authorized use of quota certificates. The use of eCERT 2.0 will allow for the decrementing of quota certificates to prevent those certificates from being overused. Participating countries will have enhanced querying capabilities to query and track actual certificate usage. Additionally, importers will be able to query their usage of the quota certificates via the Automated Broker Interface. In order to participate in eCERT 2.0, importers must provide the participating country with the Importer of Record (IOR) number in advance of filing an entry, and, in turn, the participating country must submit the IOR number as an additional data element of information within the transmission for eCERT 2.0. The transition to eCERT 2.0 will not change the tariff-rate quota or tariff preference level filing process or requirements. Importers will continue to provide the export certificate or certificate of eligibility numbers from the participating countries in the same manner as when currently filing entry summaries with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The format of the export certificate and certificate of eligibility numbers will remain the same for the corresponding eCERT transmissions.

Automation of CBP Form I-418 for Vessels
Document Number: 2021-27571
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-12-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This rule amends the regulations in title 8 and title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) regarding the submission of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form I-418, Passenger ListCrew List (Form I-418) in paper form. Currently, the master or agent of every commercial vessel arriving in the United States, with limited exceptions, must submit Form I-418, along with certain information regarding longshore work, in paper form to CBP at the port where immigration inspection is performed. Most commercial vessel operators are also required to submit a paper Form I-418 to CBP at the final U.S. port prior to departing for a foreign place. DHS is modifying the applicable regulations to provide for the electronic submission of Form I-418. Under this rule, vessel operators will be required to electronically submit the data elements on Form I-418 to CBP through an electronic data interchange system (EDI) approved by CBP in lieu of submitting a paper form. This will streamline vessel arrival and departure processes by providing for the electronic submission of the information collected on the Form I-418, eliminating redundant data submissions, simplifying vessel inspections, and automating recordkeeping.
