Section 321 Seller/Shipper Clarification

 

In a CSMS message published on January 10, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) clarified the differences in parties that arose in both the FRN and CATAIR for the Entry Type 86 filings in ACE. Please see below for more information.

 

Federal Register Notice (FRN):

A Test Notice was published in the Federal Register (FR) on August 13, 2019, which referenced that an entry type “86” requires the owner, purchaser, or customs broker appointed by the owner, purchaser, or consignee to file the following data elements with CBP at any time prior to, or upon arrival, or up to 15 days after arrival of the cargo: (1) The bill of lading or the air waybill number; (2) Entry number; (3) Planned port of entry; (4) Shipper name, address, and country; (5) Consignee name and address; (6) Country of origin; (7) Quantity; (8) Fair retail value in the country of shipment; (9) 10-digit HTSUS number; (10) IOR number of the owner, purchaser, or broker when designated by a consignee (conditional).

 

CBP and Trade Automated Interface Requirements (CATAIR) ACE Cargo Release:

Version 23 of the CATAIR for Cargo Release references that for type 86, the following data elements are required: Consignee and Seller’s information are required: (1) The bill of lading or the air waybill number; (2) Entry number; (3) Planned port of entry; (4) Seller name, address, and country; (5) Consignee name and address; (6) Country of origin; (7) Quantity; (8) Fair retail value in the country of shipment; (9) 10-digit HTSUS number; (10) IOR number of the owner, purchaser, or broker when designated by a consignee (conditional).

 

Because of differences in parties listed between FRN and CATAIR, for the purpose of this test, shipper information should be entered into the seller party area for type 86 entry filings.
