CBP guidance on subsequent inbonds in ACE allowed only after full inbond arrival

August 31, 2012 | No. 2012-265


The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today issued a release noting a change on inbond transmissions. CSMS #12-000343 (August 31, 2012)

Under the “legacy” Automated Broker Interface (ABI), a subsequent inbond may be transmitted via the inbond transaction (QP) after the first arrival posting for the previous inbond—even if that arrival is not for the full inbond quantity.

However under ACE, subsequent inbonds may not be transmitted via QP until the previous inbond is completely “arrived.”

Today’s CPB notice emphasizes that all QPs will be transmitted via ACE effective September 29 2012. The CBP guidance states that if the business practice is to transmit one inbond that covers multiple bills of lading, the transmission of any subsequent inbond will need to wait for the arrival of all merchandise covered by that inbond. The guidance provide steps for indicating that a previous inbond has not “been arrived” in its entirety.
