New chapter of the CATAIR posted to CBP.gov
New Certificate Query for eCert 2.0
A new chapter of the CATAIR has been posted to CBP.gov. The new chapter is called the “Certificate Query” and supports the Electronic Certification System (eCert) 2.0 functionality, which is scheduled to deploy to the Production (PROD) environment on September 24.
eCert is an electronic government-to-government system for transmitting a certificate, such as an export licence/certificate or a certificate of eligibility, used for importation into the U.S. for specific commodities as a requirement to qualify for in-quota or tariff preference rates of duty. eCert 2.0 will provide ACE ABI filers the capability to query certificates/licences or visas that have been filed in eCERT to obtain current status, quantity information, and entry summary usage details. The new input and output messages will be “EC” and “EZ”.
The updated CATAIR is posted in the “Draft Chapters: Future Capabilities” section at www.cbp.gov/trade/ace/catair.
