CBP Extends and Expands Global Business Identifier Testing

Posted by Timothy Miller on 2/13/24 5:00 PM

In a Federal Register Notice (FRN) published on February 12, 2024, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced changes to its Global Business Identifier (GBI) Evaluative Proof of Concept (EPoC) program test. The GBI EPoC has been expanded to include entries of any country of origin and merchandise classifiable in any subheading of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

In addition, the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) has been modified to allow test participants to provide the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS), a Global Location Number (GLN), or Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) that is associated with the manufacturers, shippers, and sellers for test entries.

The GBI test period is also being extended for another three years from February 14, 2024, to February 23, 2027.
