ACE Reporting Demonstrations for Export/Import

Did you know that AIAG collaborates with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to offer annual ACE reporting classes for export and import? These two-hour trainings improve compliance with trade laws – learn more below.

What is ACE?

The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) system designed to facilitate legitimate trade while enhancing border security. ACE improves the collection, sharing, and processing of required trade information submitted to CBP and government agencies for both export and import.

The ACE Secure Data Portal offers users real-time access to trade data through features such as ACE Reports and ACE account management and serves as the primary system for the international trade community to connect with CBP, trade partners, and Partner Government Agencies (PGA) via a single, central access window. This “single window” approach facilitates faster, more efficient processing of imports and exports, while eliminating redundancy and significantly reducing paper usage and operational costs.

ACE Portal Modernization

CBP will be modernizing the ACE Portal over multiple phases throughout 2022. This modernization will include the transition of existing functionality to an upgraded platform for better performance and easier use.

Per CBP’s announcement, phase 1 of this modernization effort began on January 22, 2022, with the following planned enhancements:

  • New home page with global search tool (including keyword and name search, filter capacity, etc.)
  • New log in screen
  • Upgraded account information display and edit features
    • All sub-accounts listed under a top account
    • Display/edit/create functions for account contacts and addresses

Until future updates take place, all other ACE Portal functionality will remain in the legacy ACE Portal.

Note: Between January 22, 2022, and the final deployment of the ACE Portal enhancements, users will have access to both the legacy ACE Portal and the new ACE Portal. During this period, CBP will continuously synchronize data between both versions.
