As announced in yesterday’s Federal Register:
- CBP and FDA have determined that ACE is capable of accepting FDA-regulated electronic entries in ACE via the FDA PGA Message Set and are concluding the Message Set test, effective May 2, 2016.
- Despite the FDA test concluding, CBP is not, at this time, decommissioning the ACS for transmitting FDA data. Nonetheless, ACE is capable of accepting FDA-regulated electronic entries and CBP encourages all importers of merchandise regulated by the FDA to now use ACE for their electronic filings. Making the transition to ACE now will benefit the filing community when ACE will become the sole CBP-authorized EDI system for these filings
