To help members working with the Partner Government Agencies (PGAs) navigate the new mandatory Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) environment, the NCBFAA has created a series of documents providing general technical guidance on what declaration information to report via ACE on behalf of these PGAs.
Three guides are currently posted:
- Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), including Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) -PGA Filer Data Requirements based on EPA Supplemental Guide
- Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – Form 3520 – 1 PGA Filer Data Requirements based on EPA Supplemental Guide – Vehicles and Engines
- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA – PGA Filer Data Requirements based on NHTSA Supplemental Guide
Two more are pending approval: FDA Prior Notice, Eggs and one for the State Department. Another, currently in the works, involves medical devices. Because a number of additional ones are in development and production, the NCBFAA Task Force will continue providing new guides for posting on the NCBFAA Website as they become available.
