CBP Simplified Entry test renamed and expanded

This document announces CBP’s plan to both rename and modify the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test concerning the Simplified Entry functionality in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). Originally, the test was known as the Simplified Entry Test because the test simplified the entry process by reducing the number of data elements required to obtain release for cargo transported by air. The test will now be known as the ACE Cargo Release Test as one of the modifications of the test announced in this notice is to provide more capabilities to test participants allowing CBP to deliver enhanced functionality. The test is also modified by expanding its coverage and by removing the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) status requirement for importer self-filers and customs brokers and by adding new data elements. This notice invites more participants to join the test.
