On July 18th, 2017 CBP posted the recently updated ‘Entry Types by PGA’ document. This document advises the trade which CBP entry type codes will require Partner Government Agency data, and when; either at cargo release, summary or other.
The majority of PGA’s require that their PGA Message Set be sent at the time of Entry (Cargo Release).
However, with the implementation of ACE, and based on feedback from the Trade, some flexibility has been provided for Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) entries. For instance, with FTZ for Vehicles & Equipment regulated by the EPA, filers have the option of filing the EPA message set at the time of filing the type 06 Entry (Cargo Release) or, if utilizing the weekly entry process, they can send it at the time of transmitting the Entry Summary.
