Fish and Wildlife Service Pushes Mandatory ACE Filing to Fall 2021

FWS will delay the expected June implementation of the FWS Message Set in ACE with a new tentative date of early fall 2021.  

The agency is still in the process of revising its regulations to reflect the use of ACE to submit import entry data.  Implementation will occur 60 days after a final rule is published in the Federal Register.

Customs brokers are now able to file FWS data in ACE and the agency encourages brokers to do so. The FWS Message Set is much improved over earlier versions.
