“Admissible” is an entry status which means a carrier transmitted bill match has occurred for an ACE Cargo Release entry, there are no bill of lading or entry level holds, but the variable release window has not been reached as outlined below:
- Ocean - 5 Days before Arrival Date
- Rail - Northern Border - En Route
- Rail - Southern Border - Arrival
- Truck - Northern & Southern Border - Arrival
- Air - Arrival
For more information on ACE Cargo Release Status Messages, please review the ACE Cargo Release Glossary Of Terms.
Messaging from ACE will depend on what government entities have equity in your transaction. A 1C message is issued to signify that CBP has cleared cargo and it is admissible to leave the port. A One USG message is issued when all government equities have been addressed. This may include, but is not limited to CBP.
The ACE Cargo Release application has the ability to automatically confirm for entries/release if (1) entry summary is on file (2) entry summary is in a fully paid status. If both conditions are met, entry can be released presuming no other holds. This functionality was already built/deployed for National Sanction List. Looking ahead, there are certain categories of live entries that may require “review before release”. These entries would populate in the Cargo Release inbox which offers an opportunity for CBP review before release.
ACE Cargo Release auto-cancels entries after 30 consecutive days with no bill match. The entry will remain on file in cancelled status. The same entry number cannot be used again. Brokers will receive a message informing them that a cancellation will occur on the 23rd day with no bill match, followed by actually cancellation.
Not at this time. Discussions have taken place but this would be a future enhancement after all core functions are complete.
If there has never been a bill match the entry will auto-cancel in 30 days. If there was a bill match but currently no port code on the entry, in order for cancellation to occur the filer should first submit an update transaction with a Port of Entry. Once complete, a “Delete” transaction can be submitted and it will be routed to the appropriate Port for processing.
No SO message with entry status will be sent until FDA PN is satisfied or disclaimed.
As an interim measure, if no SE16 information is available, please input N/A (for example) into these fields with applicable formatting rules (# of characters, etc.) We are exploring an update to make SE15 & SE16 fields optional for all non-AMS MOT’s. Additional information can be found on the ACE Features Page under the Cargo Release Tab by accessing the ACE Customs and Trade Automated Interface Requirements (CATAIR) link.
Until we complete development for the edit entry feature, a replacement entry must be filed and the original entry cancelled. Currently, CBP users (like filers) cannot edit entries after 15 days from the earlier of arrival or release. The update we’re making will allow this functionality for CBP users. Additional information can be found on the ACE Features Page under the Cargo Release Tab by accessing the ACE Customs and Trade Automated Interface Requirements (CATAIR) link.
Generally it applies to a hold on the associated bill of lading. The ACE Cargo Release team has a backlog development story to change “Under CBP Review” to “Manifest Hold” in the SO messaging. If issues persist please contact your local port for resolution.
CBP recognizes that a paperless environment will pose challenges to non-automated entities such as consolidated freight stations and terminals that do not receive electronic releases from CBP. Consequently, CBP will allow non-automated facilities, on an interim basis, to release cargo based on screen printouts presented to them by filers (importers, brokers, etc.). The printout should have at a minimum:
- Shipment ID
- Quantity being released
- Type of release as well as clear identification of who presented the release information.
For audit purposes, this will satisfy due diligence on behalf of the non-automated facility.
If the Cargo Release transaction has been submitted in advance, then prior to the arrival of the cargo, an entry with the “R” (Replace) Action can be submitted to request a change of the Port of Entry.
If within 15 days of cargo arrival and release, an entry with the “U” (Update) Action can be submitted to request a change of the Port of Entry.
The estimated weekly entry is filed as an entry type 06 Cargo Release transaction (formerly CBP Form 3461). The CBP-authorized estimated weekly entry is the permit to enter the goods for consumption from a US FTZ. Only the quantities are estimated for each HTS line-item combination of data elements. Should an additional quantity of any of the HTS line-items need to be exceeded, a supplemental weekly entry is required to be filed to account for the excess.
No goods may be entered for consumption unless the exact HTS line-item combination is permitted to be entered via CBP approval of the estimated weekly entry (or any supplemental estimated weekly entry). For example, if the country of origin (COO) and manufacturer identification (MID) for that HTS line are not listed on the estimated weekly entry, those goods must not be entered into US consumption until permitted to do so.
If a HTS line-item combination is not included on the weekly estimated entry, merchandise represented by that HTS line-item combination is not authorized to be entered for consumption. Additional HTS line-item combinations not included in the weekly estimated entry require the filing of a supplemental estimated weekly entry and its corresponding supplemental entry summary.
If estimated removals exceed actual removals, that excess quantity will not be considered to have been entered or constructively transferred to the Customs territory (19 CFR 146.63(c)).
The quantity of each HTS line-item combination cannot be exceeded on the corresponding entry summary.
If the entry summary presented to CBP shows merchandise transferred from the FTZ in excess HTS line-item combinations and quantities entered on the corresponding weekly entry (or any corresponding supplemental entry), the excess will be considered to have been transferred to the Customs territory without a permit as provided by 19 CFR 146.71(a). Liquidated damages for breach of the Zone Operator bond conditions (19 CFR 113.73) may be assessed.
