  2. Importers will receive the detention notice CBP Form 6051D via email in their ACE portal which is the recommended means of communication or by mail.
  3. Importers will be able to view, search, and respond to detention notices using the ACE Forms application.

  5. Forms 6051D will be included in the Forms report ES013.
  6. This change will affect all 6051D notices issued against ACE entries.

EDI changes-

  1. CBP to review results in cargo detention, the filer will receive the following EDI notifications:
  • An ACE Cargo Release Status Notification (SO) message.
  • An ACE Entry Summary Status Notification (UC) message. Note that the “UC-D” and “UC-C” message types will be sent even if CBP has not received Automated Broker Interface (ABI) Entry Summary (AE) data.
  • In addition, new ACE Cargo Release Error Codes will take effect for entries in a detained status.

Importers will want to consider applying for an ACE Portal account if they don’t have one already. More details and additional resources can be found in this CBP notice. If you have any questions, reach out to your Mohawk Global representative.
