In June 2018, CBP released an updated FAQ regarding the implementation of this requirement with dates attached. The most pertinent implementation date from the FAQ was that following August 6, 2018, electronic reporting of all transactions are now mandatory; CBP no longer accepts paper copies of the CBPF 7512 to perform arrival and export functionality. These functions are the requirement of the carrier. In addition, electronic reporting of diversion to a port other than reporting on the original in-bond is required. An ACE edit will reject arrival if not performed. Electronic reporting of bonded cargo location (FIRMS code) is also required. An ACE edit will reject arrival on this as well if it is not provided.
Bonded carriers are required to file electronically either directly with CBP or through a 3rd-party service solution.
Vilden's e-CLEAR has the ability to file electronic in-bond and will comply with this requirement.. Our service provides two options for filing in-bond:
File BL data in AMS to comply with new in-bond rule. e-CLEAR will allow user to file in-bond for the BL files in AMS to Customs & Border Protection (CBP).
- File direct paperless in-bond to Customs independent of BL filing.
