CBP to Make Trade Data More Accessible to ACE Users
April 18, 2019
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has sent a message regarding their plans to make trade information readily available to ACE users:
CBP’s Office of Trade is excited to notify the trade community of an initiative that is underway to make trade data more accessible to ACE users. The initiative is comprised of three projects aimed at providing more powerful reporting tools and expanded access to data for the trade community. The first project is the transition of Importer Trade Activity (ITRAC) data to ACE Reports.
Starting this Spring, CBP will begin migrating ITRAC data to ACE Reports, making the data available to all trade members, on-demand. During this time, trade may continue to use existing processes for requesting ITRAC reports via CDs and quarterly uploads via the CTPAT portal (ISA participants). At the end of the full transition to ACE, existing ITRAC reporting processes will be retired and replaced with quicker, more streamlined access to the data.
CBP will provide additional details on what to expect in the coming months.
