On July 20, 2022, in a Federal Register Notice (FRN), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced its intent to establish the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Vessel Agency Portal Account and to decommission the Cartman and Lighterman Portal Accounts “due to a lack of usage by the public.” The Vessel Agency account will include vessel entrance and clearance reports. The FRN outlines the requirements for a Vessel Agency Portal Account. The Vessel Agency Portal Account will be implemented July 24, 2022. The Cartman and Lighterman Portal Accounts will be decommissioned on August 19, 2022.  

Details can be found in the FRN here:
