On May 24, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued CSMS 18-000360, “Upcoming ACE Enhancements Announced.” Back in February of this year, CBP finished the last of the seven major scheduled core ACE deployments. And now CBP has received $30 million in funding for fiscal year (FY) 2018 to dedicate to enabling ACE enhancements.

The Customs Commercial Operations Advisory Committee (COAC) informs all of CBP’s goals and priorities, including which ACE enhancements will receive funding during FY 2018. Of course, the agency also engages with industry and congressional stakeholders in making these decisions.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently published CSMS #18-000317, an update on the steel and aluminum tariffs under Section 232.
