The ACE Secure Data Portal is a web-based application providing a single, centralized on-line access point to the ACE system and connects CBP, the trade community and government agencies involved in importing goods into the United States. The ACE portal gives users access to view their account information as it exists in CBP and to their transactional data, which they can use to identify and evaluate compliance issues and monitor daily operations. The ACE portal also allows users to access the reports tool, which can be used to compile data and perform national trend analysis. Users can also file electronic truck manifests and view Periodic Monthly Statements via the ACE portal.
The new requirements will be effective on April 5, 2014. The publication of the final rule amends the regulations published in 2008 that govern how exporters must file electronic export information with the Census Bureau. An “informed compliance” period regarding the new regulations will be in place until October 2, 2013. ***This was updated as of April 8, 2014***
