U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is preparing to roll out new ACE capabilities that support the protest process. On August 27, 2016, CBP will deploy protest filing in ACE, at which time all electronic protests must be filed via the ACE Secure Data Portal (ACE Portal).
As announced via the Federal Register on July 28, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will transition all electronic filing of protests to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) on August 29, 2016. As previously messaged to the public by CBP, the Agency planned the cutover for this transition to begin on August 27, 2016. As a result of the cutover, the legacy Automated Commercial System (ACS) will be offline. Because of the unique circumstance of the unavailability of ACS on August 28, 2016, for protest filing, and because August 28, 2016, falls on a Sunday, CBP will accept electronic protest filings that were due on August 28, 2016, to be filed in ACE on the next business day on August 29, 2016.
What can I do in ACE?
All components of protest submissions can be managed through the ACE Portal, including: creating protests, amending previously submitted protests, and viewing the status of protests that were submitted through the ACE Portal.
