CUSTOMS REOPENS APPLICATION PERIOD FOR OCTOBER ACE TEST
U.S. Customs Service said it has reopened the application period for importers wishing to participate in the first phase test of the agency’s computer-based trade monitoring system, the Automated Commercial Environment.
The deadline for application has been moved to August 1, from Customs' original deadline of June 1, due to insufficient applications received.
Participants in this two-year test, which begins in October, will eventually be able to use the account management functions, such as account access to their profile and transaction data via the Web portal.
Customs said that applications to participate would only be accepted via e-mail. For more information, contact Hedwig Lock at U.S. Customs Service, (703) 317-3657.
