Advanced Air Cargo Screen Plan announced by CBP

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced that it is formalizing and expanding an Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) pilot program that revises the time frame for transmission by pilot participants of a subset of mandatory advance electronic information for air cargo.

CBP regulations implementing the Trade Act of 2002 require advance information for air cargo to be submitted no later than the time of departure of the aircraft for the United States (from specified locations) or four hours prior to arrival in the United States for all other locations.

The ACAS pilot is a voluntary test in which participants agree to submit a subset of the required data elements (ACAS data) at the earliest point practicable prior to loading of the cargo onto the aircraft destined to or transiting through the United States. This notice provides a description of the ACAS pilot, sets forth eligibility requirements for participation, and invites public comment on any aspect of the test.

CBP is accepting applications from new ACAS pilot participants until November 23, 2012. Comments concerning this notice and all aspects of the announced test may be submitted at any time during the test period.

Written comments concerning program, policy, and technical issues should be submitted via email to [email protected]

For further information contact: Regina Park, Cargo and Conveyance Security, Office of Field Operations, U.S. CBP, via email at [email protected]
