Activation and Mandate in ACE for Quota Entry Types and Reject Notifications for ACS submissions

(as of July 21, 2016)

Beginning July 23, 2016 trade parties will be required to submit electronic entries and entry summaries for additional entry types to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).  Electronic entries and entry summaries associated with the following entry types will be accepted and mandated in ACE: 02, 07, 12, 21, 22, 31, 32, 34, and 38.  Filing of electronic entries and entry summaries associated with entry types 06 and 23 were previously mandated in ACE if they did not include quota merchandise.  Filing of these transactions with quota merchandise will also be mandated on July 23, 2016.


The ability to file these additional entry types in ACE means that quota functionality will be activated in ACE and ACE filing will be mandatory for electronic quota submissions after July 23, 2016.  The Automated Commercial System (ACS) will no longer support quota submissions after the transition.  The Quota cutover timeline from ACS to ACE follows below.  Further details about the transition will be posted on under the ACE Features section as changes occur.
