8 8  Simplified Entry (SE) is the first phase of Cargo Release developed in ACE.  Cargo Release/SE pilot covers entry data for formal and informal consumption entries in the air mode of transport.  CBP will continue to build upon the success of Simplified Entry to achieve full Cargo Release capability in ACE.  Benefits of Cargo Release/Simplified Entry  Enhances Cargo Security Allows CBP and the trade community to identify and address potential risks earlier in the process  Streamlines Release of Cargo Earlier risk assessment decisions Earlier and more detailed messaging  Reduces Transaction Costs Reduces transaction costs for importers and CBP by requesting filing data once Greater predictability; allows importers to make logistical arrangements in advance of arrival Reduces “exceptions” needing special processing after arrival Cargo Release/Simplified Entry Pilot

9 9 1.Filers Submit a Streamlined Data Submission Prior to the arrival of the merchandise, filers submit a reduced amount of information – 12 required and 3 optional data elements – for transporting the cargo to the United States. 2.Filers Can Provide the Information in Advance The Simplified Entry can be filed earlier in the import process, allowing an expanded window of opportunity to identify potential risks earlier. 3.Filers Can Update the Data for Accuracy It allows filers to update entry information, providing CBP more accurate data and enhancing cargo security. 4.More Detailed and Earlier Messaging Document requests will look to identify specific documents as appropriate and can begin while goods are still overseas. This simplifies the merchandise release process, allows for more streamlined electronic transmission for the filer, and assists importers in finalizing cargo logistics. Cargo Release/SE Overview

10 10  Cargo Release/Simplified Entry reduces the number of duplicative data elements required to obtain release of products for cargo, eliminating the current entry (CBP Form 3461)  This promotes the concept of “the owner knows the data best,” resulting in more accurate information  The following SE data set replaces the CBP Form 3461: Simplifying the Entry Process

11 11  The Cargo Release/Simplified Entry pilot began in May 2012 in the air mode of transportation.  As of May 29, 2013, over 113,500 Simplified Entries have been successfully filed for 1,094 importers at 16 airports.  Document imaging capabilities were deployed in November 2012, allowing participants to electronically provide documentation supporting their Simplified Entries via e-mail.  The following documents can be transmitted via e-mail to support Simplified Entry: Document LabelCode Packing List 01 Commercial Invoice 02 Other 03 Passport/Driver’s License/Government Issued ID 04 CBP-CF 3299 – Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles 05 CBP-CF 4455 - Certificate of Registration 06 CBP-CF 4457 – Certificate of Registration for Personal Effects Taken Abroad 07 CBP-CF 3299 – Certificate of Origin 08 Vehicle Titles, Certificates 09 Permit 10 Cargo Release/SE Pilot Status

12 12  CBP is working to enhance the Cargo Release/Simplified Entry functionality in 2013 to include additional capabilities:  PGA Message Set Automates the collection, processing, and sharing of information required by PGAs Will replace the myriad of paper forms currently submitted to Federal agencies by the trade community during the cargo importation process Piloting with Environmental Protection Agency and Food Safety Inspection Service later this year  Entry Corrections and Cancellations Provides the capability for CBP to accept (or deny) corrections and/or cancellations sent by the trade community via EDI to Simplified Entries on file with CBP  Expansion of SE pilot to ocean targeted for 2014 Cargo Release/SE Next Steps
