CSMS# 17-000375 (June 27, 2017) announced that 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 CBP.gov), reconciliation, drawback, duty deferral, collections and the Automated Surety Interface (ASI).

CBP has been conducting ongoing, rigorous testing to ensure these capabilities will operate successfully. CBP’s latest efforts have revealed areas specific to collections that are in need of further testing before these capabilities can be deployed. Consequently, CBP is postponing the July 8, 2017 deployment, and are in the process of re-planning. CBP 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.
