On September 13, 2016, Integration Point and Morley Consulting held a free webcast on Brexit and the effect on customs operations in the United Kingdom. We highlighted the latest news on Union Customs Code (UCC) changes, logistic opportunities around the world, the future of customs legislation, and more.

During the webcast, some questions were unanswered due to time constraints. You can view the on-demand webcast here.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently published CSMS #16-000849 to further delay the ACE transition timeline into January 2017.           

At the beginning of September, the mandatory go live date, October 1, was delayed until October 29. With this latest announcement, CBP is now targeting January 2017 as the new mandatory date. This transition includes the mandatory use of ACE for liquidation, drawback, reconciliation, duty deferral, collections, statements, and the Automated Surety Interface.
