Originally bundled with a Sept. 16 Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) deployment, the E214 release has now been rescheduled to Dec. 16, 2017. Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan announced on Sept. 11 the delay in the deployment of the E214 ACE capability to ensure FTZ industry readiness.

The delay of the rollout affects both the electronic Foreign-Trade Zone Admission (e214) and Manufacturer ID (MID) creation capabilities as they transition from the agency’s legacy Automated Commercial System (ACS) to the new Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) platform.
