Availability of Electronic Viewing of Certain Bills in the Automated Commercial Environment and the Adoption of an Enhanced Bill Format
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is making available to the public, an option to electronically view certain bills, specifically supplemental bills, certain reimbursable bills, and non-reimbursable/miscellaneous bills. CBP will deploy a new report within the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) that will allow importers of record, licensed customs brokers, and other ACE account users to electronically view unpaid, open bills starting at the time that physical bills are created until the bills are paid.
Additionally, this document announces that CBP will transition from the current bill format, known as CBP Form 6084, to a new CBP Bill Form that is enhanced to include additional information for the public. CBP’s adoption of the new CBP Bill Form will enable the public to identify the legal authority for the bill, the origin of the bill, contact information for additional questions about the bill, and the consequences for not paying the bill.
The deployment of the electronic viewing functionality for certain bills, as announced in this document, will become operational on October 18, 2021. Additionally, the transition to the new CBP Bill Form will be implemented on October 18, 2021.
