I. Background

    The priority mission of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is 
to prevent terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the country 
while facilitating legitimate travel and trade. The Automated 
Commercial System (ACS) is the comprehensive system used by U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection to track, control, and process all 
commercial goods imported into the United States. ACS is a 
sophisticated and integrated large-scale business-oriented system which 
employs multiple modules to perform discrete aspects of its 
functionality, including receiving data transmissions from a variety of 
parties involved in international commercial transactions and providing 
CBP with the capability to track both the transport transactions and 
the financial transactions associated with the movement of merchandise 
through international commerce. Through the use of Electronic Data 
Interchange (EDI), ACS facilitates merchandise processing, 
significantly cuts costs, and reduces paperwork requirements for both 
Customs and the importing community.
    ACS also provides the following:

A. Cargo Selectivity

    CBP uses the ACS Cargo Selectivity System to sort high risk cargo 
from low risk cargo and to determine the type of examination required. 
Cargo selectivity accepts data transmitted through ABI and compares it 
against established criteria. CBP uses the Cargo Selectivity System, a 
module of ACS, to process manifests and National In-bond entries in 
order to identify the CBP inspection and examination status of specific 
bills of lading for imported merchandise. Cargo Selectivity facilitates 
more efficient and effective cargo processing by ensuring cargo that 
requires additional screening receives it and that which is lower risk 
does not.

B. Entry Summary Selectivity

    The Entry Summary Selectivity system of ACS screens the review of 
entry summary data. Using line item data transmitted through ABI, the 
system matches national and local selectivity criteria against entry 
summary data to assess risk by importer, tariff number, country of 
origin, manufacturer, and value. The system captures paperless summary 
activity, discrepant summary findings, and line item team assignment 

C. Border Cargo

    The Border Cargo Selectivity system of ACS determines risk 
assessment and examination requirements for high volume borders (i.e., 
ports of entry). The system uses the same screening process as the 
Cargo Selectivity system. The Border Cargo Selectivity system will soon 
be enhanced to allow ABI filers to transmit manifest information.

D. Quota

    The ACS Quota system tracks quantity controls on imported 
merchandise. It also tracks visas from other countries. (Visas 
determine the amount of exports allowed for certain countries.) The 
Quota system checks the quantities against the visas and transmits this 
information to the country of origin. The ACS quota and visa controls 
simplify reconciliation of imports and exports.

E. Paperless Entry

    Paperless entry processing eliminates the need for ABI participants 
to file a Customs Form 3461, Entry/Immediate Delivery, if certain 
criteria are met and the merchandise does not require examination. 
Carriers who participate in AMS will receive electronic notifications 
when merchandise is available for release.

F. Automated Invoice Interface (AII)

    AII allows filers to send electronic invoice information to 
Customs. This information is transmitted to Customs using either ABI 
record formats or the EDIFACT CUSDEC (Customs declaration). When 
EDIFACT is used, the filer also transmits data that is normally on the 
CF-3461 for cargo release, as well as the entry summary CF-7501, 
invoice data, and other government agency data.

G. Drawback

    Filers can submit a drawback claim to Customs on a diskette or 
through ABI. This ensures that the data is quickly and accurately 
recorded in ACS and results in faster claim processing and issuance of 
the drawback payment. Immediate acceptance or rejection of data is 

H. Protest

    The ABI electronic protest system allows ABI participants to file, 
amend, and query the following types of actions:
     Protests against decisions of the Customs Service under 19 
U.S. C. 1514.
     Petitions for refunds of Customs duties or corrections of 
errors requiring reliquidation pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1520(c) and (d).
     Interventions in an importer's protest by an exporter or 
producer of merchandise from a country that is a party to the North 
American Free Trade

[[Page 77761]]

Agreement under Section 181.115 of the Customs Regulations.
    Once filed, protests can be amended and additional arguments 
submitted to:
     Apply for further review (when not requested at time of 
     Assert additional claims or challenge an additional 
     Submit alternative claims and additional grounds or 
     Request review of denial of further review.
     Request denial of the protest be voided.
    The protest, petition, or intervention can be transmitted remotely 
from any location. Customs views and processes the protest on-line. An 
automatic notification routine keeps the filer informed of any change 
in status, including final disposition.

I. Remote Location Filing

    Remote Location Filing (RLF) is a pilot program which allows an 
approved participant to electronically file a formal or informal entry 
of merchandise with Customs from a location within the United States 
other than the port of arrival (POA) or the designated examination site 
(DES). Such merchandise, upon clearance by CBP, may enter the commerce 
of the United States.

J. National In-bond

    The National In-bond system tracks cargo en route in the United 
States. Using departure, arrival, and closure data, the In-bond system 
tracks cargo from the point of unlading to the port of entry or 
exportation. The In-bond system is incorporated within AMS. AMS retains 
control over all sea in-bond movements (both conventional and 
paperless) that are associated with automated bills of lading.

K. Paperless Master In-bond

    The Paperless Master In-bond program controls the movement and 
disposition of master in-bond (MIB) shipments from the carrier's 
custody at the port of unlading to the same carrier's custody at the 
port of destination. This program utilizes the data already available 
in AMS, eliminating the need for paper documentation.
    To help prevent terrorist weapons from being transported to the 
United States, vessel carriers bringing cargo to the United States are 
required to transmit certain information to Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) about the cargo they are transporting prior to lading 
that cargo at foreign ports of entry. CBP is issuing an interim final 
rule that requires both importers and carriers to submit additional 
information pertaining to cargo to CBP before the cargo is brought into 
the United States by vessel. This information must be submitted to CBP 
by way of a CBP-approved electronic data interchange system. The 
required information is necessary to improve CBP's ability to identify 
high-risk shipments so as to prevent smuggling and ensure cargo safety 
and security, as required by section 203 of the Security and 
Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006 and section 343(a) of 
the Trade Act of 2002, as amended by the Maritime Transportation 
Security Act of 2002.
    The proposed rule was known to the trade as both the ``Importer 
Security Filing proposal'' and the ``10 + 2 proposal.'' The name ``10 + 
2'' is shorthand for the number of advance data elements CBP was 
proposing to collect. Carriers would be generally required to submit 
two additional data elements--a vessel stow plan and container status 
messages regarding certain events relating to containers loaded on 
vessels destined to the United States--to the elements they are already 
required to electronically transmit in advance (the ``2'' of ``10+2''); 
and importers, as defined in the proposed regulations, would be 
required to submit ten data elements--an Importer Security Filing 
containing ten data elements (the ``10'' of ``10+2'').
    ACS has two principal methods for electronic data interchange: The 
Automated Broker Interface (ABI) and the Automated Manifest System 
(AMS). Under the ``10+2'' program, importers, who submit the Importer 
Security Filing (ISF), will use either ABI or Vessel AMS to provide 
their information to CBP. ACS, upon receipt of the ISF, will transfer 
the data to the Automated Targeting System (ATS) for screening and 
targeting purposes. Once screened the ISF data will be returned with 
embedded targeting links to ACS to be maintained in accordance with the 
ACS stated retention policy.
    Pursuant to the savings clause in the Homeland Security Act of 
2002, Public Law 107-296, Section 1512, 116 Stat. 2310 (November 25, 
2002), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its components and 
offices have relied on preexisting Privacy Act systems of records 
notices for the maintenance of records that concern the tracking, 
controlling, and processing of all commercial goods imported into the 
United States.
    This collection satisfies the requirements of Section 203 of the 
Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109-
347, 120 Stat. 1884 (SAFE Port Act)).
    Consistent with DHS's information sharing mission, information 
stored in the Automated Commercial System may be shared with other DHS 
components, as well as appropriate Federal, State, local, tribal, 
foreign, or international government agencies. This sharing will only 
take place after DHS/CBP determines that the receiving component or 
agency has a need to know the information to carry out national 
security, law enforcement, immigration, intelligence, or other 
functions consistent with the routine uses set forth in this system of 
records notice.
    To provide notice and transparency to the public, the Department of 
Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announces an 
amendment to an existing legacy Privacy Act system of records, the 
Automated Commercial System, a comprehensive system used by U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection to track, control, and process all 
commercial goods imported into the United States. This legacy system 
will now also collect additional data via the Automated Broker 
Interface and Vessel Automated Manifest System.
    In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 and as part of DHS's 
ongoing effort to review and update legacy system of record notices, 
DHS proposes to update and reissue the following legacy record system, 
Treasury/CS.278 Automated Commercial System (66 FR 52984 October 18, 
2001), as a DHS/CBP system of records notice titled, U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection Automated Commercial System. Categories of 
individuals and categories of records have been reviewed, and the 
routine uses of this legacy system of records notice have been updated 
to better reflect the DHS/CBP Automated Commercial System record 
system. This reissued system will be included in DHS's inventory of 
record systems.

II. Privacy Act

    The Privacy Act embodies fair information principles in a statutory 
framework governing the means by which the United States Government 
collects, maintains, uses, and disseminates personally identifiable 
information. The Privacy Act applies to information that is maintained 
in a ``system of records.'' A ``system of records'' is a group of any 
records under the control of an agency for which information is 
retrieved by the name of an individual or by some identifying number, 
symbol, or other identifying particular assigned to the individual. In 
the Privacy Act, an individual is defined to encompass United States 
citizens and lawful permanent residents. As a matter

[[Page 77762]]

of policy, DHS extends administrative Privacy Act protections to all 
individuals where systems of records maintain information on U.S. 
citizens, lawful permanent residents, and visitors. Individuals may 
request access to their own records that are maintained in a system of 
records in the possession or under the control of DHS by complying with 
DHS Privacy Act regulations, 6 CFR part 5.
    The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal 
Register a description denoting the type and character of each system 
of records that the agency maintains, and the routine uses that are 
contained in each system in order to make agency recordkeeping 
practices transparent, to notify individuals regarding the uses to 
which personally identifiable information is put, and to assist 
individuals to more easily find such files within the agency. Below is 
the description of the Automated Commercial System system of records.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DHS has provided a report of 
this updated system of records to the Office of Management and Budget 
and to Congress.

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, 
and disposing of records in the system:
    Records in this system are stored electronically or on paper in 
secure facilities in a locked drawer behind a locked door. The records 
that are stored electronically are stored on magnetic disc, tape, 
digital media, and CD-ROM.

    Records may be retrieved by identification codes and/or name.

    Records in this system are safeguarded in accordance with 
applicable rules and policies, including all applicable DHS automated 
systems security and access policies. Strict controls have been imposed 
to minimize the risk of compromising the information that is being 
stored. Access to the computer system containing the records in this 
system is limited to those individuals who have a need to know the 
information for the performance of their official duties and who have 
appropriate clearances or permissions. The system maintains a real-time 
auditing function of individuals who access the system. Additional 
safeguards may vary by component and program.

Retention and disposal:
    The Importer Security Filing is retained for fifteen years from 
date of submission unless it becomes linked to active law enforcement 
lookout records, CBP matches to enforcement activities, and/or 
investigations or cases (i.e., specific and credible threats; 
individuals, and routes of concern; or other defined sets of 
circumstances) for which it will remain accessible for the life of the 
law enforcement matter to support that activity and other enforcement 
activities that may become related. All other records are maintained 
for a period of six years from the date of entry.

System Manager and address:
    Director, Office of Automated Systems, CBP Headquarters, 1300 
Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20229 is responsible for all 
data maintained in the files.

Notification procedure:
    Individuals seeking notification of and access to any record 
contained in this system of records, or seeking to contest its content, 
may submit a request in writing to CBP's FOIA Officer, 1300 
Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20229. If an individual 
believes more than one component maintains Privacy Act records 
concerning him or her the individual may submit the request to the 
Chief Privacy Officer, Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray 
Drive, SW., Building 410, STOP-0550, Washington, DC 20528.

     If your request is seeking records pertaining to another 
living individual, you must include a statement from that individual 
certifying his/her agreement for you to access his/her records.
    Without this bulleted information the component(s) will not be able 
to conduct an effective search, and your request may be denied due to 
lack of specificity or lack of compliance with applicable regulations.

Record access procedures:
    See ``Notification procedure'' above.

Contesting record procedures:
    See ``Notification procedure'' above.

Record source categories:
    Records are obtained by authorized Customs forms or electronic 
formats from individuals and/or companies incidental to the conduct of 
foreign trade and required by CBP in administering the tariff laws and 
regulations of the United States.

Exemptions claimed for the system:
    Information in the system may be shared with law enforcement and/or 
intelligence agencies pursuant to the above routine uses. The Privacy 
Act requires DHS to maintain an accounting of the disclosures made 
pursuant to all routines uses. Disclosing the fact that a law 
enforcement or intelligence agencies has sought particular records may 
affect ongoing law enforcement or intelligence activity. As such 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2) and (k)(2), DHS will claim exemption 
from (c)(3), (e)(8), and (g) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as 
is necessary and appropriate to protect this information.
