On August 22, 2019, the Data Pilot began with CBP soliciting volunteers to submit an
expanded list of Data elements electronically.
IBC is participating in this program on the behalf of clients wishing to submit the
additional Data Elements. CBP will use the Data to evaluate this information so as
to improve the review and release of the Sec. 321 qualified shipments.
The additional data will allow CBP to target high-risk shipments, including narcotics, and
other health and safety items. Participants engaged in e-commerce for this trial can
include carriers, brokers, freight forwarders and on line marketplaces.
Applicants must apply to CBP directly.
Please contact our experts at IBC Customs Brokerage if you have any questions.
