As a reminder, CBP will be deploying two enhancements during February for existing ACE ESAR transactions – as specified below:
1) Periodic Monthly Statement – Request Reroute:
This transaction is being enhanced to remove the requirement for including the transmission date in the inbound request record when requesting a specific Periodic Statement Number to be rerouted. See related: CSMS #15-000048. This enhancement is currently scheduled for deployment on 2/14/15. CBP is tracking this as item 1257 on the ACE ESAR Issues Tracking Matrix located here.
2. Importer/Bond Query:
This transaction is being enhanced to simplify the Address Request Code to request importer and bond details and to provide the entity’s physical address in 2 new records (the K5- and K6-records).See related: CSMS #14-000534. This enhancement is currently scheduled for deployment on 2/28/15. CBP is tracking this as item 1259 on the ACE ESAR Issues Tracking Matrix located here.
Draft ACE ABI CATAIR chapters for these two enhancements can be found on CBP.GOV on the ACE ABI CATAIR page, Draft Chapters for Future Capabilities tab.
