AceU.S. Customs and Border Protection automated systems electronically support the facilitation of importing and exporting goods. By the end of 2016, the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) will become the Single Window - the primary system through which the trade community will report imports and exports and the government will determine admissibility. Through ACE as the Single Window, manual processes will be streamlined and automated, paper will be eliminated, and the international trade community will be able to more easily and efficiently comply with U.S. laws and regulations.  Customs and Border Protection has issued a date of February 28 for a large majority of Participating Government Agency entries to take place. 

JAS Forwarding USA has been working diligently for months on the ACE transition and was one of the first brokers to ever file using the ACE system.  The new ACE platform will be a robust system when complete but it has had its share of ups and downs during the production process.  It has been a rocky road getting ACE to fruition. There have been deployments that have not worked correctly and have caused major headaches for the industry as well as delays in programming being delivered by CBP to the software providers.  This then causes delays to the industry.  Some programming will be delivered by CBP to the software providers the day before the cut over.

JAS will continue to work through these issues and currently participates in several pilots with CBP such as FDA, DOT and the Lacey Act. While U.S. Customs & Border Protection has until the deadline of February 28th, JAS Compliance is currently taking part in daily conference calls with CBP, participating in webinars and attends meetings and classes regularly to ensure that JAS Forwarding USA is ready.

“I have been in the business for a very long time and I clearly remember the first day I heard about ACE over a decade ago and thought ‘wow, this would be a great tool.’  I have watched and listened to CBP discuss ACE and what it can do for years.  The time is finally here.  It has been a rocky road but JAS will do everything we can to ensure that we are ready.” says Laurie Arnold, Regulatory Compliance Officer, JAS Forwarding USA, Inc.
