On July 22, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register¬ a general notice announcing that CBP is extending the Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) pilot period for an additional year. The ACAS pilot is a voluntary test in which participants submit a subset of required advance air cargo data to CBP at the earliest point practicable prior to loading of the cargo onto the aircraft destined to or transiting through the United States. The ACAS program was originally announced in the Federal Register on October 24, 2012 as a six month pilot, but has been extended several times. The most recent notice extended the pilot period through July 26, 2016. CBP is extending the ACAS pilot program through July 26, 2017. Comments concerning any aspect of the announced test may be submitted at any time during the test period.
