1. FDA Regulation of LED Products Question: Does FDA regulate LED products? Is more information available on the new FD2 flagging of some HTS codes?
Answer: Yes, FDA regulates LED products. The FD flag change does not change FDA’s requirements regarding LED products. For questions regarding transmitting LED products in ACE, please contact ACE_Support@FDA.hhs.gov and FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, firstname.lastname@example.org, with the specific product information.
2. FDA ACS Messaging Update Question: When will FDA be turning off FDA ACS transactions?
Answer: On February 23, 2017, certain inbound and outbound FDA ACS transactions will be turned off. For more details on the specific transactions being turned off February 23rd and for future shutoff dates, please see CSMS #17-000055.
3. Changes to ATF Document Submission Question: May ATF Forms 6 and 6A be submitted electronically in ACE via the Document Image System (DIS)?
Answer: No, importers filing ATF information electronically through ACE are required to use the PGA Message Set. DIS images of ATF Forms, including Form 6 and 6A, will no longer be accepted. When the PGA Message Set is filed correctly, the importer will receive an automatic “May Proceed” from ATF, and if there are no further issues, the shipment will be released. Please note, original paper ATF Forms 6 and 6A may also be submitted to the ports of entry. For further information about PGA forms and filing procedures, please see the ACE PGA Forms List included in CSMS #17-000061 and available on the PGA Integration tab of https://www.cbp.gov/trade/ace/features.
