The air cargo advance screening (ACAS) pilot program is a voluntary test in which participants submit a subset of required advance air cargo data to CBP at the earliest point practicable prior to loading of the cargo onto the aircraft destined to or transiting through the United States. 

Originally, the ACAS pilot program was set to run for a six-month period, pursuant to an October 2012 announcement. CBP subsequently published several subsequent notices extending the pilot period and/or reopening the application period to new participants for limited periods. The most recent notice extended the pilot period through July 26, 2017. 

Today’s notice [PDF 210 KB] announces that the pilot period is being extended for an additional year, through July 26, 2018. Comments concerning any aspect of the announced test may be submitted at any time during the test period.
