Effective October 1, 2022, CBP Form 1302A Cargo Declaration – Outbound with Commercial Form will no longer be accepted in Document Image System (DIS)In March of 2012, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) allowed CBP Form 1302A Cargo Declaration – Outward with Commercial Forms to be filed using the Document Image System (DIS). The use of DIS was offered as an interim step to the development of a fully electronic export ocean manifest. In 2022 CBP published an extension to the pilot in the Federal Register titled “Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Export Manifest for Vessel Test: Renewal of Test” Document Number 2022-08955. Since October 2015, this pilot allowed carriers to submit the export manifest data elements thru the Electronic Data Interface (EDI) to the Automated Cargo Environment (ACE).In preparation for the upcoming publication of the National Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) that will announce the proposed regulatory changes for outbound vessel manifest submission. Effective October 1, 2022, CBP will be disabling in DIS the option to submit the CBP form 1302A Cargo Declaration – Outward with Commercial Forms for outward vessels. Carriers currently utilizing DIS to file the form 1302A Cargo Declaration should begin to transition to either paper submissions or start participation in the ACE Export Manifest Test. As outlined in 19 CFR 4.63 carriers are required to submit the CBP form 1302A Cargo Declaration Outward with Commercial Forms to the port of departure. A carrier that is participating in the test and submitting100% electronic manifest by EDI to ACE will no longer have to submit form 1302A Cargo Declaration Outward with Commercial Forms to the port of departure. Participating carriers submitting 100% outbound electronic manifest will be identified in Appendix P of the Electronic Export Manifest Implementation Guides. Carriers submitting 100% outbound electronic manifest can continue to submit Pro forma manifest as outline in 19 CFR 4.75 if authorized by the area port director. Questions may be directed to the Outbound Enforcement and Policy Branch, at cbpvesselexportmanifest@cbp.dhs.gov
