The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is the primary system through which the trade community reports imports and exports and the government determines admissibility. Through ACE as the Single Window, manual processes are streamlined and automated, paper is being eliminated, and the trade community is able to more easily and efficiently comply with U.S. laws and regulations. CBP is working to complete the final deployment of core trade processing capabilities in ACE.
Variable Release Window is the earliest time in the lifecycle of an ACE Cargo Release entry when a “Released” status (or other entry disposition… i.e. “hold”) can be achieved and messaged to the filer and carrier. Ocean - 5 days before estimated arrival date, with vessel departure message.
Countervailing duty (CVD) is a specific form of duty that the government imposes in order to protect domestic producers by countering the negative impact of import subsidies. CVD is thus an import tax by the importing country on imported products. .
The Automated Clearing House (ACH) is the primary system that agencies use for electronic funds transfer (EFT). With ACH, funds are electronically deposited in financial institutions, and payments are made online .
CBP offers three ACH options: ACH Debit, ACH Credit, and ACH Refund.
An Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Automated Broker Interface (ABI) entry summary filer has the capability to query ACE entry summaries containing unresolved Census warnings. Queries may be made based upon the district/port of entry, a specific time period, or upon specific entry summaries. Please note; safeguards exist which prohibit access to entry summary data unless the participant is responsible for filing the entry summary. Input: Record Identifier CJ1 is a mandatory input record that provides the query criteria to access data for ACE entry summaries with unresolved Census warnings. The application identifier on Record Identifier B is CJ. For additional information on Record Identifier B, refer to the Application Control chapter of the ACE ABI CATAIR. Output: Record Identifier CJ2 is an ACE output record provided in response to Census warning queries and will provide data related to an entry summary with unresolved Census warnings. This record may be repeated to provide data on all entry summaries which meet the query criteria. The application identifier on Record Identifier B is CL. For additional information on Record Identifier B, refer to the Application Control chapter of the ACE ABI CATAIR.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has incorporated U.S. Census Bureau data validations into the ACE entry summary ABI process. Census warnings result when discrepancies occur between what the Census Bureau usually observes for a data element or a relationship between two data elements for a particular tariff and the data filed in an entry summary. Census warnings do not always mean an entry summary is in error, just that the information given is unlikely to be accurate. Commercial invoices or other evidence should be examined to verify the accuracy of the data. If there are errors in the submitted data, then the entry summary information must be corrected. If, however, the unlikely information is accurate, meaning that the entry summary data are correct as reported, then an appropriate override code must be submitted. Override codes may be submitted along with the ACE entry summary (see the ACE ABI CATAIR chapter titled “Entry Summary Filing and Response Guide”) or may be submitted after ACE entry summary processing and acceptance of the entry summary in ACE in a separate transaction (see the ACE ABI CATAIR chapter titled “Census Warning Override”).
Extract reference files provide up-to-date data on:
·Foreign Port Codes
·Harmonized Tariff Schedule
·Facilities Information and Resources Management System (FIRMS) Codes Extract reference files are useful for editing and cross-referencing input data.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) notifies Automated Commercial System (ACE) users through the Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) when an update has been made to a file. This allows users to update their own files.
Operational Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) users have the capability to query a manufacturer identification (MID) code to determine whether the manufacturer name and address is on file. If the MID is not on file, the message MID CODE NOT ON FILE is system generated. If the MID is on file, but without name and address information, the message MID NAME/ADDRESS NOT ON FILE is returned. If the MID is on file, the MID number is returned to the filer along with the following data:
·International Organization for Standardization (ISO) country code
·ZIP or Postal Code
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTS) input and output records provide data related to a tariff number. HTS records are either HTS update transaction records, HTS query records, or HTS extract reference file records. Update Transactions The Automated Commercial System (ACS) HTS file is updated either by magnetic tape or by Record Identifiers V1 through V9 and VA through VC. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) offers the trade community a complete copy of the HTS on magnetic tape. It should be noted that the data on the tape is based on the latest data received from the U.S. International Trade Commission. HTS is updated in ACS and the magnetic tape is sent in early December to all those who request it. The price is $500. (For ABI participants there is no charge.)
Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) are secure areas under U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) supervision that are generally considered outside CBP territory upon activation. Located in or near CBP ports of entry, they are the United States' version of what are known internationally as free-trade zones.
Authority for establishing these facilities is granted by the Foreign-Trade Zones Board under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u). The Foreign-Trade Zones Act is administered through two sets of regulations, the FTZ Regulations (15 CFR Part 400) and CBP Regulations (19 CFR Part 146).
Foreign and domestic merchandise may be moved into zones for operations, not otherwise prohibited by law, including storage, exhibition, assembly, manufacturing, and processing. All zone activity is subject to public interest review. Foreign-trade zone sites are subject to the laws and regulations of the United States as well as those of the states and communities in which they are located.
Under zone procedures, the usual formal CBP entry procedures and payments of duties are not required on the foreign merchandise unless and until it enters CBP territory for domestic consumption, at which point the importer generally has the choice of paying duties at the rate of either the original foreign materials or the finished product. Domestic goods moved into the zone for export may be considered exported upon admission to the zone for purposes of excise tax rebates and drawback.
Qualified public or private corporations that may operate the facilities themselves or contract for the operation sponsors foreign-trade zones. The operations are conducted on a public utility basis, with published rates. A typical general-purpose zone provides leasable storage/distribution space to users in general warehouse-type buildings with access to various modes of transportation. Many zone projects include an industrial park site with lots on which zone users can construct their own facilities.
Subzones are normally private plant sites authorized by the Board and sponsored by a grantee for operations that usually cannot be accommodated within an existing general-purpose zone.
The in-bond process facilitates the flow of trade by allowing importers as well as transportation and logistics partners to choose the port at which their cargo is entered for consumption into the commerce of the United States via immediate transportation (IT) entries. The in-bond system also covers cargo that is not intended for entry for consumption in the United States but is instead sent in-transit through the United States to another country. These are either transportation and/or exportation (T&E) in-bond entries (i.e., the cargo enters in one United States port and moves in-bond before being exported at another port) or immediate export (IE) in-bond entries (the cargo is imported to and is exported from the same port). Importers and transportation and logistics partners may elect to use the in-bond process for a variety of commercial reasons. In-bond has become a widely used and integral component of the trade process.
In-bond cargo must be transported by a carrier covered by a CBP-approved bond that allows cargo that has not yet been entered for consumption to move through the United States. Such carriers can move goods by ship, truck, rail, plane or any combination of modes. CBP is not concerned with the type of mode used by the trade as long as the bond has been approved and issued. The bond is a contract given to insure performance of obligations imposed by law or regulation that guarantees payment to CBP if the required acts are not performed, i.e., cargo is not delivered timely. If CBP finds the bonded party has violated laws or regulations, and, as a result, breached the terms and conditions of the bond in the movement of the in-bond, CBP can initiate liquidated damages for the breach against the bonded party.
Drawback and Duty Deferral Programs. The NAFTA provisions on drawback and duty deferral applies to goods imported into Canada or the United States and subsequently exported to the other country (i.e., Canada or the United States) on or after January 1, 1996. The NAFTA provisions on drawback and duty deferral will apply to goods imported into Canada or the United States and subsequently exported to Mexico, or imported into Mexico and subsequently exported to Canada or the United States, on or after January 1, 2001. Thus, transactions involving either the importation of goods into Mexico or the exportation of goods to Mexico will not come under the drawback and duty deferral provisions of the NAFTA until January 1, 2001.
Drawback is the refund, reduction or waiver in whole or in part of customs duties assessed or collected upon importation of an article or materials which are subsequently exported.
Under the NAFTA, the amount of customs duties that will be refunded, reduced or waived is the lesser of the total amount of customs duties paid or owed on the goods or materials when imported into a NAFTA country and the total amount of customs duties paid or owed on the finished good in the NAFTA country to which it is exported.
No NAFTA country, on condition of export, will refund, reduce or waive the following: antidumping or countervailing duties, premiums offered or collected pursuant to any tendering system with respect to the administration of quantitative import restrictions, tariff rate quotas or trade preference levels, or a fee pursuant to Section 22 of the U.S. Agricultural Adjustment Act. Moreover, same condition substitution drawback was eliminated effective January 1, 1994.
