ACE Enhancements

In February 2018, CBP deployed the last of the major scheduled core ACE deployments, marking a significant milestone for government and industry.  All import manifest, cargo release, post release, export, and PGA integration functionality scheduled for delivery in ACE is now available.

CBP is focused on sustaining all deployed ACE capabilities and ensuring ACE operates as a highly available and reliable system.  There is also an ongoing demand for additional ACE enhancements that emerge from our active dialogue with our industry, government agency, and congressional stakeholders.  Examples include the automation of CBP form 5106 and the creation of a new entry type - Entry Type 86 - Informal De Minimis.  The full list of ACE enhancements currently planned for deployment can be found via our notional Development & Deployment Schedule (Dev/Dep schedule).

In addition to those enhancements found on the Dev/Dep schedule, CBP is continuing to work through additional emerging requirements and securing funding for their development.  The Dev/Dep schedule will be updated as work gets underway and as new enhancements are added.
