On January 11, 2017, United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced in a CSMS message, that “the January 14, 2017, deployment of post release capabilities including liquidation (with the exception of the electronic posting of the Notices of Liquidation on CBP.gov), drawback, reconciliation, duty deferral, collections, statements and the Automated Surety Interface [would] be postponed.” Electronic posting of Notices of Liquidation are still scheduled to take effect on January 14, 2017.
In the notice, CBP identifies “stakeholder feedback” and the“complexity of the ongoing integration” as two factors that contributed to the postponement. In addition, “CBP is providing additional time to prepare for the final core ACE deployment and ensure a smooth transition.”
CBP will update the deployment schedule and provide further information at a later time. Please send an email to Deringer’s Compliance Department or call (518) 298-8281 with any questions.
