ACE Portal Modernization - Phase 2

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has deployed Phase 2 of the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Portal Modernization.

Remaining functionalities will continue to transition as available. Parallel access to those same functionalities in the legacy ACE Portal remains for an interim period, giving users sufficient time to adjust to accessing the functionality in the modernized platform.
