ACE Ocean Export Manifest FAQs

Document Posting Date: 
August 3, 2016

This document represents a series of questions received from Ocean Export stakeholders.  Where possible, CBP has provided a preliminary response to the various questions.  This is NOT an official CBP regulatory document.  This document is a working vehicle for exchange of information between CBP and ocean industry stakeholders during the development phases of AES Export Manifest.  At a future time, CBP may incorporate all or part of this document into an official Export Manifest FAQ document.  Trade groups will be notified via CSMS of any such official publication; in the meantime this document is an evolving work in progress.
