The International Trade Data System (ITDS) Committee of the Trade Support Network (TSN) is seeking participants from the trade in the new US Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) ACE/ITDS Working Group. The purpose of the group is to develop technical requirements for participation by FWS in the ACE/ITDS. Specifically, the goal is to ensure that the trade is capable of electronically submitting FWS data using the Partner Government Agency (PGA) message set in ACE.
As most in the trade are aware, US Customs’ new ACE system will become the Single Window – the primary system through which the trade community will report imports and exports to US Customs and other agencies having jurisdiction. Currently, CBP and 47 PGAs are working to enable shippers to file cargo entries in ACE.
Details of participating in the FWS working group are available here. Interested parties must submit a request to apply by July 30.
