ACE Deployment Postponed

CBP is rescheduling the last primary deployment of core trade processing capabilities in ACE which had been scheduled for July 8, 2017.

This deployment includes liquidation (with the exception of the previously deployed electronic posting of the Notices of Liquidation on, reconciliation, drawback, duty deferral, collections and the Automated Surety Interface (ASI). To ensure these capabilities will operate successfully, ongoing rigorous testing has revealed areas specific to collections which are in need of further testing before these capabilities can be deployed.

Consequently, CPB is postponing the July 8, 2017, deployment, and are in the process of replanning.

The agency will communicate further information as soon as possible. The rescheduled deployment date will be published in a Federal Register Notice at least 30 days in advance of the actual deployment/mandatory transition.
