CMS ABI Electronic In-Bond - QP/WP

CSMS #38731726 - Electronic Reporting of Exports, Arrivals and Diversions

Effective July 29, 2019, members of the Trade community will be required to report all in-bond exports, arrivals and diversions electronically through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). Air shipments will continue to be exempt from these requirements and trade members can still request manual posting by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for these shipments. CBP will no longer accept paper copies of the CBPF 7512 to perform arrival and export functionality. An ACE edit will issue a rejection if these actions are not performed. At this time, no date is set for implementation of the provision requiring the 6-digit Harmonized Tariff Schedule number requirement for Immediate Transportation movements. The Automated In-Bond Processing Business Process Document is the official publication which provides both CBP and the trade community with guidance, requirements and responsibilities when processing in-bond cargo.

On November 27, 2017, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a final rule entitled Changes to the In-Bond Process. The final rule adopted, with several changes, proposed amendments to CBP regulations regarding the in-bond process.

On February 22, 2012 CBP has published in Federal Register "Changes to In-Bond Process" according to which by middle of 2012 paper 7512 form will no longer be accepted. Only Electronic In-Bond requests will be filed into ACE. One of the accepted venues is QP/WP.

Cargo Manager Systems Inc. is pleased to provide a facility called ABI QP/WP through which non-brokers can request electronic In-Bond move authorization and receive responses from Customs & Border Protection electronically.
