This past Valentine’s Day, Integration Point wasn’t just celebrating a day of love. Our SVP of Product Management, Melissa Irmen, presented at NAFTZ Legislative on a much-loved topic in the industry – PGA reporting.

With all the ACE changes in the past year, here’s a recap on where PGA filing currently stands for FTZs. You can also click here to read the latest CBP update on PGA filing.

  • Some PGA filing is already required in ACE for FTZs. That includes data at the time of entry (3461) and at entry summary (7501) for weekly processing.  Once the e214 is moved to ACE, some are looking to collect data at time of admission (214).
  • Some PGAs are using pilots to determine data collection.
  • On the other hand, not all PGAs have published requirements or become live in ACE.

In the presentation, Irmen took a close look at the current status of FTZ filing with each of the following PGAs, discussing their requirements and latest developments.

  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
  • Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)
  • Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
  • Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)
  • National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
  • Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB)

“The NAFTZ has been working very closely with the PGAs to understand the filing needs of each agency and to educate the agencies about zone filing practices and data availability,” said Irmen. “That work continues, both with the agencies currently in process with ACE, and those just beginning the process of onboarding their requirements to ACE.”
