The Food & Drug Administration has proposed the following data requirements for the electronic filing of entries of FDA-regulated products in ACE.  The goal of adding these new required elements – many which are optional now – is to expedite automatic release of entries.

The FDA would like feedback on the entire proposal but especially on whether or not any given data element is needed to determine admissibility.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) released a notice regarding the implementation of revised Lacey Act provisions. The official document is expected to be published on June 16 and is available online here.

On December 21, 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hosted a webinar regarding ACE implementation for C-TPAT automakers. Coleman Sachs and Clint Lindsay from the Import and Certification Division answered questions involving:

  • NHTSA ACE Pilot Progress
  • Fabricating Manufacturer and Temporary Waiver Requests
  • Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) Filing Requirements
  • Expedited Release
