Explanation
In an Entry Summary Query, if a specific entry number is included in the J1 record, a J2 record is
not permitted.
A filer may not use the ACE Entry Summary query to query an ACE entry filed by a different filer.

The ACE ES query was submitted for an entry number that was filed in ACS.
In an Entry Summary Query, if there is an action query type code provided in the J2 record, a
'from' date/time range is required.
In an Entry Summary Query, if the J2 record contains data in the 'from' date/time range field, pos
8-21, the format of the date/time transmitted must be correct as shown in the J2 record of the ES
Query chapter.
In an Entry Summary Query, if there is an action query type code provided in the J2 record, a 'to'
date/time range is required.
In an Entry Summary Query, if the J2 record contains data in the 'to'' date/time range field, pos 22-
35, the format of the date/time transmitted must be correct as shown in the J2 record of the ES
Query chapter.
In the J2 record of an Entry Summary Query, the 'to' date cannot be greater (later than) the 'from'
date.
In an Entry Summary Query, if the J2 record is submitted, one of the valid action query type codes
must be provided in pos 4-6. If this field is blank, this error results.
In an Entry Summary Query, the 'oustanding action query type code' in pos 4-6 of the J2 record is
not one of the five permitted codes.
In an Entry Summary Query, if the 'from' and 'to' date ranges are included in the J2 record, the
range between the two dates cannot exceed 31 days.
If the importer of record number is blank in the 11 record, pos 3-14, this error will result.
The importer of record number, 11 record, pos 3-14, is not on the importer file in the ACCOUNTS
tab.
Importer numbers must be in one of the acceptable formats listed in Usage Note (f) of the ACE
ABI Entry Summary Create/Update chapter of the ACE ABI CATAIR. Any format other than one
of those shown in this note will result in this reject.
If the importer of record number in the 11 record, pos 3-14, is listed a 'voided' on the SRE file, this
error will result.
The ultimate consignee number must be in one of the acceptable formats. If any other formats
are used, or if any characters other than alpha or numerics are used, this error will result. Note:
encrypted IRS or SSN numbers are not accepted in an AE transaction.
If the ultimate consignee number, as reported in either the 11 record or the 47 record, shows
'void' on the SRE file, this error will result.
Ultimate consignee numbers at the entry header level (11 rec, pos 15-26) must be in one of the
acceptable formats listed in the ACE ABI CATAIR. 00-000000000 or 000-00-0000 are not
permitted for this element. If they are transmitted for the ultimate consignee, this error will result.

The 11 record, pos 15-26, is used to report the ultimate consignee for an entry summary. The
number provided in this field must be active in the importer database. If the number is not on file,
this error will result.
The consignee number in the 11 record must be on file in the importer database. If it is not, this
error will result.
The importer of record number, 11 record, pos 3-14, is listed as inactive on the importer file in the
ACCOUNTS tab.
The bond type code is transmitted in the 31 record, pos 3. Only types 8 and 9 can be transmitted
in this field. Any other letter or number will generate this error.
If the bond portlet under the Accounts tab does not indicate a continuous bond for the importer of
record on an entry summary, this error will result.
If bond type 8 is transmitted in the 31 record, pos 3, a valid continuous bond must be on file for
the importer of record with the surety code reported in the 31 record. If no bond is on file, this
error will result.
If the continuous bond for the importer of record is not effective as the duty comp date for the
entry, this error will result.
The bond for the importer of record has expired or been terminated as of the duty comp date
transmitted in this entry transaction.
RLF entries require type 8 bond coverage. If the filer transmits bond type 9 (or zero), or omits the
31 record entirely, this error will result.
If an entry type is one that requires a bond, there must be a 31 record transmitted to report the
bond details.
If a bond waiver has been requested ("0" in pos 38 of the 10 record), then no bond information is
permitted in the form of a 31 record. If a 31 record is included in the AE transaction, this error will
result.
If a type '9' bond is transmitted, the 31 record must include the surety's producer account number
in pos 13-22. If that field is blank or zero filled, this error will result.
The bond waiver field replaced the bond type indicator in the 10 record, pos 8. If any code other
than 0 is sent in the 10 record, pos 38, this error will result.
The bond amount is transmitted in the 31 record, pos 3-12. Only numerics can be sent in this
field. (will change when A2.3.1a goes live)
The estimated entry date is transmitted in the 11 record, pos 42-47. It must be transmitted in
MMDDYY format. If the date transmitted does not conform to this format, this error will result.

If the filer indicates a continuous bond ("8" in pos 3 of the 31 record), bond producer account data
is not allowed in pos 19-28 of that record.
The import date is transmitted in the 11 record, pos 48-53 It must be transmitted in MMDDYY
format. If the date transmitted does not conform to this format, this error will result.

The live entry indicator is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 44. ACE will only accept a "Y" in this
field. Any other character will result in this reject.
If the bond waiver reason code is transmitted in pos 62-64 of the 10 record, and there is no bond
waiver request ('0' in pos 38 of the 10 record), this error will result.
The usage code for personal cargo or samples is transmitted by providing a "P" or an "X" in the
10 record, pos 43. Any other character in this field will generate this error.
The state of destination is transmitted in the 11 record, pos 61-62. If this field is left blank, this
error will result.
The state of destination is transmitted in the 11 record, pos 61-62. If this field does not contain a
valid, 2-character U.S. state code, this error will result.
The deferred tax indicator is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 45. The only acceptable indicator is
a "1" or "2". Any other character in this field will result in this reject message.
The deferred tax indicator is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 45. Type 2 in this field indicates an
electronic funds transfer deferral has been arranged. This option is not permitted for informal
entries. If code '2' is transmitted with entry type 11, this error will result. Note: the table in usage
note e shows "a" for this element for type 11 entries. It will be changed to "n" in the next revision.

If the entry type is not 06, this field must be blank. If any data is included in pos 54-60 of the 11
record, this error will result when the entry type is other than 06.
When the surety code is required, it must be transmitted in the 31 record, pos 6-8. If the entry
type and bond type require a surety code and one is transmitted, this error will result.
The surety code reported in the 31 record, pos 6-8, does not appear as a valid surety code on the
surety database.
If bond type 0 is transmitted in the 31 record, pos 3, a valid "bond waiver reason code" must be
transmitted in pos 62-64 of the 10 record.
Bond waivers are only valid for specific entry types. Usage Note "i)" in the ACE ABI CATAIR
specifies the conditions and entry types that permit a request for a bond waiver (10 record, pos
38). If the entry type does not permit a bond waiver, this error will result.
The surety code reported in the 31 record, pos 6-8, does not agree with the surety code listed in
the ACCOUNTS tab for the importer of record number for a current, active bond
The cargo release indicator is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 40. The indicator can only be the
letter "Y". Any other letter or character will cause this error.
If an AE input contains one or more 32 records with entry numbers that have been previously
released, the instant AE cannot be certified for cargo release (10 record, "Y" in pos 40), as the AE
is merely reporting a consolidated summary for entries already released.

An ACE Entry summary cannot request cargo certification if a release via the Line Release
program has already been accepted in ABI/ACS
The filer's ACS ABE record has not been updated to operational status for cargo release
processing.
RLF entries must be certified for cargo selectivity. If the 10 record, pos 40, does include "x", this
error will result. The cargo selectivity requirement applies to every transmission of the RLF entry
(which is different from ACS RLF requirements)
The missing document indicator(s) is transmitted in the 33 record, pos 3-4 and 5-6 (if necessary).
Only specific two character codes will be accepted in this field. If other codes are transmitted, this
error will result. See Table 7 of the ACE ABI CATAIR for allowable codes

An import entry being flagged for any type of reconciliation entry must provide a continuous bond
indicator ("8") in the 10 record, pos 38.
Reconciliation issues are identified in the 10 record, pos 47-49, using one of the 7 prescribed
codes listed in the ACE CATAIR. If any code other than an allowable code is transmitted in this
field, this error will result.
The request for a NAFTA recon posting to an AE is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 46. The only
acceptable indicator is a "Y". If any other character is used in this field, this error will result.

A reconciliation code was transmitted in pos 47-49 of the 10 record, but the entry type does not
permit reporting a request for a reconciliation action.
The date of importation is a required element in the 11 record, pos 48-53. If it is not transmitted,
this error will result.
The 11-digit importer of record number, 11 record, pos 3-14, is listed on the reconciliation
importer file as being approved for reconciliation entries.
The Mode of Transportation code (MOT) is required for entry type 01. It is transmitted in the 10
record, pos 36-37. If the code is omitted, this error will result.
The MOT is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 36-37. Only codes listed in Table 3 of the ACE
CATAIR are allowed in this field. If a code not listed in Table 3 is transmitted in this field, this
error will result.
The port of unlading is transmitted in the 20 record, pos 7-10. The port code reported must be a
valid port code which supports cargo processing. If a port code is not valid for the MOT reported
in the 10 record, pos 36-37, this error will result.
If the MOT in the 10 record, pos 36-37 is ocean/rail/air, a valid Schedule D port code is required in
the 20 record, pos 7-10.
The port code for the port listed in the 20 record, pos 7-10, as the port of unlading is not
operational as an unlading port in the RDP file.

offices or administrative sites are not permitted to be used as reportable FIRMS locations.

The FIRMS code transmitted in the 20 record, pos 17-20, is not on file in ACE as an active
location.
A carrier code is required for air/ocean shipments. If the 20 record, pos 3-6 is left blank for MOT
air or ocean, this error will result.
If the carrier code field on the 20 record, pos 3-6, is not found on the CARL file, or is omitted
entirely, this error will result.
The carrier code, transmitted in the 20 rec, pos 3-4 does not represent an air carrier that is listed
on the CARL file read by ACE.
The vessel code, which applies only to ocean vessels and is also known as the Lloyd's code, is
transmitted in the 20 record, pos 41-47. If the MOT transmitted in the 10 record, pos 36-37, is
OTHER than 10 or 11, this error will result if a vessel code is transmitted.
For ocean shipments, a conveyance name is required in the 20 record, pos 21-40. If the name is
omitted, this error will result.
Bond waiver reason codes are only valid for specific entry types. Usage Note "i)" in the ACE ABI
CATAIR specifies the conditions and entry types that permit a request for a bond waiver (10
record, pos 38). If the entry type does not permit a bond waiver, a bond waiver reason code is
similarly not permitted. If one is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 62-64, this error will result.

If the MOT in the 10 record, pos 36-37 is ocean/rail/air, an appropriate bill of lading, air waybill, rail
bill, etc is required to be reported in the 23 record. If that data is omitted, this error will result.

If an acceptable MOT (see Table 3 of the ACE CATAIR) is not reported in the 10 record, manifest
detail information is not allowed to be reported in the 23 record.
A manifest component cannot be repeated with the same manifest component grouping of a 22
record plus up to 4 23 records. (cannot report the same bill number or the same inbond number
more than once). If the component is duplicated, this error will result. Also, the sequence of data
elements must be reported per note 1 for the 23 record.
If the 23 record reports an inbond number (code "I" in pos 3), the unlading port (20 record, pos 7-
10) cannot be the same as the port of entry (10 record, pos 18-21).
The inbond date is transmitted in the 20 record, pos 52-57. If it is not in MMDDYY format and
represents a valid date on the calendar, this error will result.
The import date is transmitted in the 11 record, pos 48-53 After the export date, it must be the
earliest date reported of all the dates transmitted in the summary. If the inbond date, for example,
is earlier than the import date, this error will result.
The inbond date is transmitted in the 20 record, pos 52-57. This date cannot be later than the
estimated entry date reported in the 11 record.
The inbond date reported in the 20 record, pos 52-57, cannot be more than 2 years earlier than
the transmission date of the AE to CBP.
If the ACE entry has a 31 record with bond type 8, a second 31 record, if transmitted, cannot use
bond type 8 again.
The DES is transmitted in the 20 record, pos 48-51. This field must be a valid U.S. CBP port
code, listed in Sched K. If a port code in this field is not a valid Sch K code, this error will result.

The filer has transmitted a designated exam site in the 20 record, pos 48-51. If the entry summary
is not an RLF entry summary, this error will occur.
ACE entry summaries must be first transmitted with payment type 2,3, 5, 6, 7, or 8. If payment
type 1 is transmitted on the first AE, this error will result.
If the payment type indicator in the 10 record, pos 51 is a "1", then the payment date field, pos 52-
57, must be blank. If a payment date is included in this field with a payment type code of "1", this
error will result.
If the payment type indicator in the 10 record, pos 51 is other than 6, 7, or 8, the payment month
field, pos 58-59 of the 10 record must be blank. If any data is transmitted in this field, this error will
result.
If the 'branch' indicator on the filer's ABE record is not set to "o", inclusion of a branch indicator in
the 10 record, pos 60-61, will cause this error.
If the filer transmits a payment type other than 1 in the 10 record, pos 51, a statement print date is
required in pos 52-57. If that date is omitted, this error will result.
The preliminary statement date is transmitted in mmddyy format. Any other format will cause this
error.
The statement print date, transmitted in the 10 record, pos 52-57, cannot be on a Saturday,
Sunday or designated federal holiday.
The preliminary payment print date, transmitted in the 10 record, pos 52-57, must be at least one
business day in the future. If the date is in the past or equal to the transmission date of the
summary, this error will result.
The statement print date, transmitted in the 10 record, pos 52-57, cannot be more than 90 days in
the future, as compared to the system transmission date.
The filer's ACS ABE record has not been updated to operational status for statement processing.

If payment 6, 7 or 8 is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 51, a continuous bond must on file for the
importer and bond type 8 must be transmitted in the 10 record, pos 38.
10 rec, pos 51, contains the payment type indicator. If type 6, 7, or 8 is used, the filer (broker or
importer) must be a PMS participant.
10 rec, pos 51, contains the payment type indicator. If type 6, 7, or 8 is used, the importer of
record in the 11 rec, pos 3-14, must be a PMS participant.
If a filer elects to use PMS for an AE submission, the requested payment month must be
transmitted in pos 58-59 of the 10 record. If payment type 6, 7, or 8 is transmitted in pos 51, and
no payment month is included, this error will result.
The month of statement payment for a PMS statement is transmitted in the 10 record, pois 58-59.
That field must indicate "01" through "12". Any other code in that field will generate this error.

The periodic statement month is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 58-59. This field requires a two-
numeric month indicator (01 through 12). The month selected can be no further into the future
than two months following the month of the release.
f the filer indicates a continuous bond ("B" in pos 3 of the 31 record), the STB amount field (pos
19-28 of the 31 record) must be blank.
If the filer transmits a periodic statement print date that is after the date that the periodic monthly
statement will generate for the statement month requested, this error will result.
If the AE contains a statement print date (10 record, pos 52-57) that is equal to or earlier than the
date of transmission of the AE, this error will result.
Once an ACE entry summary has been paid in via statement/ACH acceptance, a retransmission
of the summary cannot reference any data in the statement payment fields (cannot use any
payment type nor any date in the payment date field) This error will also occur if an ACE
summary is rejected by CBP prior to the scheduled payment date.
The estimated entry date is transmitted in the 11 record, pos 42-47. This date cannot be later
than the statement print date, transmitted in the 10 record, pos 52-57.
If the filer's ABE profile is set to "Y" in the branch field, a branch indicator is always required in the
10 record, pos 60-61. If the branch indicator is omitted, this error will result.
The indicator that the filer is submitting an electronic entry is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 41.
The only acceptable value for this field is a "Y". Any other character will cause this error.

An RLF entry must include a 42 record designating the invoice supplier MID and invoice number
being provided. If the 42 record is omitted, this error will result. ACE will examine the B record
for the RLF preparer port and filer data, the RLF indicator, and the 10 record, pos 41 for the
Electronic Invoice Indicator. If one of these three elements are missing, this error will result, even
if the 42 record is transmitted.
An ACE entry summary which reports a Y in pos 41 of the 10 record, indicating an electronic
entry, must be scheduled for statement (ACH) processing in pos 51 of the 10 record. If a '1' is
transmitted in pos 51 for such an entry, this error will result. If the entry is a PSC filing, the
requirement for an electronic entry to be scheduled for ACH is waived and position 51 of the 10
record must be blank.
If a filer wishes to report a superseding continuous bond, the indicator to be transmitted for this
purpose is "Y" in pos 5 of the 31 record. Any other character in this field will generate this reject
message.
If an AE has a "y" in pos 41 of the 10 record, indicating an electronic entry, a continuous bond
must be obligated. If the 10 record, pos 38, does not show "8", this error will result.
The transmitted port of entry is not eligible for EIP or RLF processing.
The filer's ABE record was not set to operational for AII prior to the transmission of an AE with "y"
in pos 41 of the 10 record.
If an ACE entry summary which has been accepted by CBP is an electronic entry, any further
transmissions of that entry number must include a 42 record with an invoice number. If the AE is
transmitted without a 42 record, this error will result.
A consolidated entry summary is indicated by an indicator in the 10 record, pos 42. The only
acceptable value for this field is a "Y". Any other indicator will cause this reject.
If a 32 record is included in an entry summary and pos 42 of the 10 record is not transmitted with
a "Y", this error will result.
A consolidated entry is reported in the 32 record. The filer code of the entry is required for each
entry number reported. If the filer code is omitted, this error will result.
Entry numbers reported as part of a consolidated summary are listed in the 32 record. The filer
code of each release must be accompanied by the actual entry number. If a release filer code is
transmitted without the associated entry number, this error will result.
Released entries reported in the 32 record must have the same filer code as the filer of the
consolidated summary. If a different filer code is reported in any of the 'filer code' fields in the 32
record, this error will result.
If a consolidated entry is indicated in the 10 record, pos 42, any entry numbers listed in the 32
record must be on file in ACE has having a release associated with that entry number(s). If there
is no release on file for the listed entry number(s), this error will result.
Consolidated entries must use a different entry number from any of the consolidated releases
reported in the 32 record. If the entry numbers are the same, this error will result.
The bond amount for a single transaction bond is transmitted in the 31 record, pos 9-18. That
field cannot reflect zero as the bond amount.
If the filer wishes to report a superseding bond, pos 5 of the 31 record must be "Y". If no
superseding bond is reported, the position should be space filled. If any character other than a
"Y" is transmitted in pos 5, this error will result.
If a fee is reported at the header level for the AE input (informal entry fee, for example), in a 34
record, the 89 record for the same accounting code is required. If the 89 record omits the code
used in the 34 record, this error will result.
Classification codes for fees are reported in the appropriate record (34, 62, and 89). The class
code must be a valid, pre-established code. If a code that is not currently on file is used in one of
these records, this error will result.
Certain fee class codes must be reported in the 62 record and others are reported in the 34
record. If a code that is reportable only in the 34 record is reported in a 62 record, or vice versa,
this error will result. Further, if the same class code is reported twice (identical 62 records, e.g.)
this error will also be generated. Also, if the fee is not reportable due to exemptions that exist
(LDDC, NAFTA country), this error will be issued if the fee is reported.

The same accounting class code (for fees) cannot appear in the 89 record more than once. In
the AE that caused this reject, the filer sent 000 in the entire record, so ACE read each set of 000
that appeared in the 2nd and subsequent class code fields(pos 17-19,31-33, etc) as a duplicate
fee class code.
For all 01 entries, a 47 record with code 'c' and the identification number of the ultimate consignee
is required for each line of the entry. If a multi-line entry omits the 47 record-level ultimate
consignee, this error will result.
If the field for quantity is completed in the 22 record, pos 3-10, it must be a whole number greater
than zero.
For an MOT that requires manifest quantity reporting, the 22 record, pos 3-10, must reflect a
quantity (greater than zero). If the field is left blank, this error will result.
If any quantity is transmitted in the 22 record, a unit of measure for that quantity is required in pos
11-15.
If the 23 record reports an inbond number (code "I" in pos 3), an inbond origination date is
required. This is transmitted in the 20 record, pos 52-57. If the date is omitted, this error will
result.
If the filer transmits an inbond date in the 20 record, pos 52-57, there must be a 23 record with
manifest component type I and a valid inbond number. If the inbond number is omitted, this error
will result.
All AE entry summaries must indicate a payment type code in the 10 record, pos 51. If this field is
blank, this error will result.
If a type '9' bond is transmitted, the 31 record must include the amount of the single transaction
bond in pos 9-18. If that field is blank or zero filled, this error will result.
The 31 record transmits bond information, including whether the bond is a basic bond ('b") for the
entry or an additional bond ("a") for AD/CVD requirements. Any code besides 'a' or 'b' will reject
with this error.
If the filer elects to report two 31 records, one must be designated for additional bond coverage
(code A in pos 4). If two 31 records are transmitted with code "B" in pos 4, this error will result.

For entry types which require a bond, at least one 31 record is required and must reference 'bond
designation type code" B. If only one 31 record transmitted in the AE and does not reference
code "B", this error will result.
A PSC filing is not permitted to include a list of consolidated entry releases in a 32 record.
A post entry summary correction (PSC) cannot be transmitted with a certification for cargo
release in the 10 record, pos 40.
A PSC filing cannot include the 'live' entry indicator in the 10 record, pos 44.
A PSC filing cannot include a NAFTA recon claim.
A PSC filing cannot include a non-NAFTA recon claim.
A request for accelerated liquidation on a PSC can only be a "Y". Any other character in this field
(10 record, pos 66) will cause this reject.
A conventional ACE entry summary cannot have any data in position 66 of the 10 record. This is
reserved for use in a PSC.
A conventional ACE entry summary cannot include a 36-record (the PSC filing explanation). This
is reserved for use in a PSC submission.
A PSC was transmitted with a header reason code not found in Table 14 of the ACE Entry
Summary Create/Update chapter of the ACE CATAIR.
A PSC filing has reported two or more identical header reason codes.
A Facilities Information and Resources Management System (FIRMS) code is not permitted to be
included in a PSC transaction.
A PSC was transmitted with the same entry type as the conventional entry but included a reason
code for a change to the entry type (H01/H03)
A PSC transaction has changed the entry type, but no header reason code has been included in
the PSC transaction.
A PSC transaction changed one or more header elements and no 35 record was included to
report one of the header change reason codes.
A conventional ACE entry summary cannot report PSC Header reason codes (35 record).
A PSC was transmitted without an explanation for the change being included via the 36 record.

PSC reporting ("Y" in pos 65 of 10 record) is not implemented as of Dec 2010
If the summary action filing request code in the 10 record, pos 3 is 'a' or 'r', line item data is
required, starting in the 40 record. If no line item data is provided, this error will result.
Each 40 record must have a unique identifier, in pos 5-7. If the line item identifier is missing, this
error will result.
The indicator for a set is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 8. The only acceptable indicators are
"x" or "v". If another character is transmitted in this field, this error will result.
If line item details reported in the 40 record, pos 8 with a "v" are transmitted without a preceding
40 record with an "x" in pos 8, this error will result. There cannot be two or more "v" lines without
an "x" line before the first "v" line.
If a tariff line is identified as a set header ("x" in 40 record, pos 8), the next tariff line must repeat
the tariff number and use identifier "v" in pos 8. If the 2nd tariff line omits the "v" in the 40 record,
this error will result.
The tariff number transmitted in the first "V"-indicated 50 record is not the same number as
reported in the "X"-indicated 50 record which precedes the first V line.
The country of origin must be transmitted in the 40 record, pos 9-10. If it is omitted, this error will
result.
If the country of origin is reported in pos 9-10 of the 40 record using any data other than a valid
ISO country code, this error will result.
If the country of origin, transmitted in the 40 record, pos 9-10, is coded as 'restricted' on the ACE
country file, this error will result.
If the 40 record, pos 11-12 is blank, this error will result.
If the country of export transmitted in the 40 record, pos 11-12, is not one of the valid ISO country
codes, this error will result. Note that Canadian province codes are NOT valid for country of
export reporting, nor is "US".
If the country of export is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 11-12, is "US", this error will result.

If the country of origin is Canada, the 40 record, pos 9-10, must contain a valid province code,
not CA.
The related party indicator is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 56. The indicator is required for
entry type 01. If the field is left blank on entry type 01, this error will result.
Trade Agreements or Special Program indicators are transmitted in the 40 record, pos 25-26.
Only codes published with tariff numbers may be transmitted in this field. If other codes are sent,
this error will result.
Secondary special program provisions are claimed by transmitting an appropriate SPI (spec prog
indicator) in the 40 record, pos 55. Only four codes are currently approved for this field. If a
different code is transmitted, this error will result.
The export date is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 11-12. If that date is omitted for an entry type
that requires an export date, this error will result.
The date of export is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 13-18 and must be in MMDDYY format. If
the date is not in this format and is a valid date on the calendar, this error will result.

The date of export transmitted in the 40 record, pos 13-18 cannot be greater than (that is, cannot
be later than) the date of any reported inbond number in the 20 record, pos 52-57.
Gross shipping weight is transmitted in the 40 record, pos42-51. If this field is left blank, this error
will result. Zeroes can be transmitted if gross shipping weight does not apply to the entry, but the
field cannot be space filled.
The indicator which claims exemption from a fee is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 58. The only
acceptable indicators are a 1 or a 2. Any other character transmitted in this field will cause this
rejection.
Charges are transmitted in the 40 record, pos 27-36. Only numeric characters are permitted in
this field. If any other character is transmitted, this error will result.
40 rec, pos 52-54 requires a valid textile category from the HTS file. If a category number not
shown on the HSA record for the tariff number is transmitted, this error will result.
The date of export transmitted in the 40 record, pos 13-18 cannot be later (greater than) the date
of import in the 11 record, pos 48-53.
40 rec, pos 37-41 requires a valid sch K port code. If a code that is not on the Sch K list is
transmitted, this error will result.
Ocean shpments require a Sch K foreign port of lading to be reported in the 40 record, pos 37-41.
If this field is omitted for MOT 10 or 11, this error will result.
For every 40 record transmitted, there must be at least one 50 record to report a tariff number,
value and quantity.
If the 50 record, pos 3-12, is blank, this error will result.
The tariff number reported in the 50 record, pos 3-12, is not on file in the tariff database. If the
tariff number is 8 digits, the last two positions of this record must be space filled.
The tariff number reported in the 50 record, pos 3-12, is not on file in the tariff database as of the
duty comp date used in the summary (estimated entry, etc).
Each 50 record must report a unique HTS number for a given line. If a tariff number is repeated
in a 50 record, this error will result. Note: this does not apply to chapter 9802 numbers for
commodities such as watches or clocks, but the 9802 HTS cannot be transmitted in consecutive
50 records
The value of an article is reported in the 50 record, pos 25-34. If this field contains spaces in any
position, this error will result.
The duty amount reported in the 50 record(s), pos 14-23, must reflect only numeric characters.
Any other character will cause this error. Also, if a space is transmitted between two numeric
characters or before or after a numeric, this error will result.
The unit of measure for a tariff number which requires quantity to be reported is transmitted in the
50 record, pos 48-50 (for the first quantity). If the tariff reported in pos 3-12 rquires a quantity, and
the UOM is omitted, this error will result.
The 50 record, pos 36-47, reports a quantity with the unit of measure in pos 48-50. If the tariff
number does not require a quantity, no UOM can be reported. [see 9802004040..no reporting
quantity is attached to this tariff number, hence the UOM field must be blank]
The unit of measure (UOM) is transmitted in the 50 record, pos 48-50 for the first tariff number. If
the tariff number reported in pos 3-12 has a different UOM on the HTS database from the filer's
reported UOM, this error will result. Also, if the tariff number does not permit the reporting of a
UOM (chapter 98 and 99 numbers, usually), this error will also result if the filer provides a UOM.

Where there are multiple 50 records required, if the 2nd (or 3rd, etc) 50 record requires quantity
and UOM reporting and no data is provided, this error will result.
If the entry summary reports code "Y" in pos 41 of the 10 record, ACE will expect the related
invoice data to be reported in the 42 record. If no 42 record is provided, this error will result.

If the entry summary is not coded as an electronic summary ('y' in position 41 of the 10 record),
the filer may not include a 42 record, "invoice line reference detail".
If a 42 record is transmitted, an invoice number, pos 18-34, is required in addition to the supplier
ID. If no invoice number is reported, this error will result.
The invoice number element of the 42 record, pos 18-34, cannot contain a space or other non-
alphanumeric character. If spaces or non-numerics are included in this field, this error will result.

The foreign exporter is reported in the 47 record, using code "E" in pos 3. If the exporter MID is
not on file in the CBP MID database, this error will result.
The invoice detail record (42) must include a supplier ID code (MID) in pos 3-17. If that code is
omitted, this error will result.
If the non-reimbursement statement indicator ("Y" in pos 60 of the 40 record) is transmitted on an
type 03 entry, but there is no 53 record containing a valid case number, this error will result.

Electronic invoice data transmitted in the 42 record must have at least one line number range,
starting in pos 36-39 fro the beginning line number and ending in pos 41-44 for the ending line
number. If this range is omitted, this error will result.
An invoice line requires at least one beginning range number (42 record, pos 36-39) and an
ending range number (pos 41-44). If the beginning range is supplied, but the ending range is not
transmitted, this error will result.
The invoice beginning and ending line numbers are transmitted in the 42 record. This field
represents the line numbers on an invoice that apply to the entry summary line. The invoice line
number must begin with "1". If a zero is reported in an invoice line number field, this error will
result.
The beginning line number for an invoice (42 record, pos 36-39) cannot be a higher number than
the ending line number in pos 41-44 (and so on for the other line ranges in the 42 record)

The invoice number referenced on the 42 record cannot use the same invoice line number or
range of numbers on more than one line of the entry summary.
If a 43 record is transmitted, a ruling type code is required in pos 3. If a code is omitted, this error
will result.
The 43 record is used to transmit an administrative ruling. Three codes are available to indicate
which type of ruling is being reported. The codes are listed in the ACE ABI CATAIR, page ESF-
42. If a code other than C, P, or R is transmitted in pos 3 of the 43 record, this error will result.

If the entry type is 03 (or 01), ACE will scan the transmitted tariff numbers and country of origin to
determine if there is an active, valid AD or CVD case for those tariff number/c/o combinations. If
so, and there is no 53 record included in the AE, this message will result. This is an informational
message, not a reject.
If the entry type in the 10 record is not 03 (as of Jan 2010), no AD/CVD data can be included in
the entry. If a 53 record is transmitted for such an entry type, this error will result.

The visa number is transmitted in the 51 record, pos 3-11. If pos 4-5 of the record does not
contain a valid ISO country code, this error will result.
The type of license, certificate or permit transmitted in the 52 is sent in pos 3-4. This is a
mandatory field in the 52 record and its omission will cause this reject.
License/certificate/permits are transmitted in the 52 record. Each such item must be described by
a valid type code in pos 3-4 of this record. The acceptable codes are listed in the ACE ABI
CATAIR record layout for the 52 record. The inclusion of a type code other than one listed in the
current version of the CATAIR will cause this rejection message.
The license, certificate or permit number is transmitted in the 52 in pos 5-14. If a license,
certificate or permit type code is present in pos 3-4 of this record, the actual license, certificate, or
permit number must be included or this error will result.
The AD/CVD non-reimbursement statement is optional for the filer. If used, only a "Y" is allowed
in pos 60 of the 40 record. Any other character will cause this reject.
An MID is required for entry type 01 AE transactions. If there is no 47 record with code "m" and
an MID included in the entry summary input, this error will result.
Census warning condition codes (see Table 10 of the ACE CATAIR) are transmitted in the CW02
record. If the code transmitted in pos 10-12 is not listed in Table 10, this error will result.

The CW record Census warning code is transmitted in the CW02 record, starting in pos 10-12. If
this code, or any other code transmitted in the CW02 record, is not one that has occurred during
processing of the ACE entry summary, this error will result.
The Census warning override code is transmitted in the CW02 record, pos 13-14. If a warning
condition is reported in pos 10-12, a warning override code is required in pos 13-14. If no code,
or a code not found in table 10, is transmitted in this record, this error will result.
Each Census warning code (27 series) can be overriden with a specific override code, listed in
Table 11 of the ACE CATAIR. For a given Census warning only the permitted codes will be
accepted in the CW02 record. If a code is transmitted that does apply to the Census warning
message, this error will result.
Within the same CW02 record, a Census Warning code cannot be repeated.
The OA record must contain a disclaimer code for an agency that is listed on the tariff record. If
the agency being disclaimed is not listed for the tariff number, this error will result.

If the tariff number in the 50 record, pos 3-12, is coded FC4 on the tariff database, the filer must
include FCC reporting data. If the required FCC data is not transmitted, this error will result.

If the tariff number in the 50 record, pos 3-12, is coded FC3 on the tariff database, the filer must
include either FCC reporting data or an FCC disclaimer. If neither is transmitted, this error will
result. As of Oct 2009, ACE is rejecting entries with 9802 and an FCC-coded tariff number in the
next 50 record. This is wrong
A line on an ACE Entry Summary cannot have an OA record with an FCC disclaimer followed by
FCC records reporting the data.
An OA record with an OGA disclaimer code (DT0, FD0, FC0) cannot be transmitted unless the
tariff number from the 50 record is coded DT1, FD1 or FD3, or FC3. If the tariff number has no
OGA indicator or an indicator ending in 2 or 4, the disclaimer cannot be transmitted.
The OI record describing the imported article was not transmitted in the AE data (must be before
the FCC records (FC01/FC02).
If an OI record providing cargo description is included in an ACE Entry Summary line, the PGA
data must be provided following the OI record. If no PGA data is transmitted, this error will result.
As of May 2011, the presence of Lacey Act data is not recognized by ACE, so if the OI record is
followed ONLY by PG records, this error will result.
There must be a 47 record with party type E and an appropriate foreign exporter identification
number if entry type 03 is transmitted.
The FCC Import Condition codes are listed in Table 12 of the ACE ABI CATAIR. These codes
are two character numeric codes and only these codes may be used in the FC01 record, pos 5-6.
If any data in this field is not a two-numeric code, this error will result.
The FCC line number (pos 8-10 of the FC01 record) is required to start at '001' and be
incremented consequently for each set of FCC data reported on the same Customs Line. If the
first set of FCC data is reported with any sequence number other than '001', this error will result.

The FCC issues a code that must be reported in the FC01 record, pos 11-27. This code is
mandatory if import condition 01 is reported in pos 5-6 of the FC01 record. If the code is omitted,
this error will result.
A 47 record with an article-party-type-code of C and an appropriate consignee identification
number is required for most entry types (certain informal entries may use all zeros for the
consignee).
The FCC identifier is transmitted in the FC01 record, pos 11-27. It must contain a minimum of
four characters. If fewer than four characters are sent, this error will result.
FCC data requires a trade name (item description) for all articles subject to FCC review. The
trade name is sent in the FC01 record, pos 28-57.
FCC data requires a model or type identification number for all articles subject to FCC review.
The model or type number is sent in the FC01 record, pos 58-74.
In the 53 record, pos 13, the filer indicates whether the reported AD/CVD case is covered by a
cash deposit or may be bonded. The only acceptable codes for this reporting are B or C. Any
other character transmitted in pos 13 will generate this error.
FCC data requires that the number of imported articles subject to FCC review be reported in the
FC02 record, pos 5-16. This field cannot report all zeroes as the quantity.
The FC02 record, pos 17, is used to request that the FCC reported data be withheld from public
inspection. The code "Y" is the only acceptable code for this request. Any other character will
cause this reject.
The FCC prior approval indicator (a "Y" in the FC01 record, pos 7 when import condition 03 is
used in pos 5-6) is not required, nor permitted, when the imported quantity is under 200 pieces.

AE summaries indicate different tariff lines by the line counter in the 40 record, pos 5-7. If a
previously reported line number is used on a subsequent line, this error will result.
The article party is transmitted in the 47 record. As of August 2009, only M (MID) or C
(consignee) is permitted as the article party type. Two additional party types (S=sold to and
E=Exporter) will be available when A2.3.1a goes live
If the same consignee number is reported in more than one 47 record per entry summary line,
this error will result.
If a 47 record includes an Article Party Type code in pos 3, an identifier for the party type code is
required in pos 4-18. If that field is left blank, this error will result.
If the 11 record consignee field (pos 15-26) is blank, one or more 47 records with article party
type code "C" is not permitted.
The MID transmitted on the 47 record is not found in the ACE MID database.
The 54 record is used to report additional declarations to ACE. The only type code permitted as
of May 2009 is '01' for Canadian Softwood Lumber imports. If any type code other than '01' is
transmitted in the 54 record, pos 3-4, this error will result.
The softwood lumber declaration indictor is transmitted in position 5 of the 54 record. The only
two acceptable indicators are "Y" or "N". Any other indicator, including a space in pos 5, will
generate this error.
The first sale indicator is transmitted in the 40 record, pos 59. The only acceptable code for this
field is "F". Any other character transmitted in this field will cause this error.
The class code for reporting IR tax amounts must be reported in the 60 record, in pos 3-5. If the
class code is not transmitted, this error will result.
The IR tax accounting class codes are based on the code attached to the tariff number. The
codes are transmitted in the 60 record, pos 3-5. If the submitted code is not listed on the tariff
number database record, this error will result.
If the country of origin is Canada, the MID must start with one of the valid province codes. Any
other code will cause this reject.
The case deposit rate is transmitted in the 53 record, pos 14-21. Only numeric characters can be
transmitted for this field.
In the 53 record, pos 22, the filer indicates whether the reported AD/CVD case duty rate is ad
valorem or specific. The only acceptable codes for the case status are reporting are A or S. Any
other character transmitted in pos 22 will generate this error.
If the case reported by the filer has only an ad valorem AD/CVD duty rate, the filer may not
transmit an AD/CVD quantity in the 53 record, pos 35-46.
The 53 record, pos 25-34, is used to report a value that will be used to compute AD/CVD duties
instead of the line item value reported in the 50 record, pos 25-34. If the filer reports the case as
having a specific rate of duty (indicator "S" in pos 22 of the 53 record), the AD/CVD value field
must be blank.
In the 53 record, pos 3 is the beginning of the AD/CVD case number. Cases must begin with A or
C. Any other character transmitted in pos 3 will generate this error.
The AD or CVD case number reported in the 53 record does not exist on the AD/CVD database.

The case number reported in the 53 record, pos 3-12, is for a country which does not match the
country of origin reported in the 40 record, pos 9-10.
The case number reported in the 53 record, pos 3-12, does not inlcude the tariff number reported
in the 50 record, pos 3-12.
A declaration that a non-reimbursement statement exists for a case is reported via the 53 record,
pos 57-66. The number reported in this field must correspond exactly to a previously assigned
identifier, issued by CBP, after a non-reimbursement declaration has been made for the case on
the Importer's Account. If the exact identifier does not exist on the Importer Account detail record,
this error will result.
A revoked AD or CVD case cannot be reported in an ACE Entry Summary.
AD/CVD cases that are in the status of "initiated" cannot be reported in an ACE Entry Summary.
This error will be generated if such a case is reported. Note: if the case number transmitted
does not start with an A or C, this error may also result from the incorrect case number.

If the case being reported in the 50 record has a 'stop liq susp' date on file and the entry date for
the ACE summary is after the stop-liq-susp date, the case is not reportable.
This is an informational message (not a reject) that advises the filer that the case they reported in
the 53 record may have a related case that was not reported in a second 53 record.

The cases reported in consecutive 53 records for the same customs line are not listed on the
AD/CVD database as being related to one another.
Case data on the ACE AD/CVD database must show a bond or cash status of B or C in order to
be reportable on an AD/CVD entry via ACE. If the case does not show either B or C, it cannot be
reported.
The cash/bond indicated transmitted in the 53 record, pos 13, is a "B", but the case record on file
indicates that cash is required.
If the ad valorem rate for an AD/CVD case is zero, a case rate is not permitted to be reported in
the 53 record, pos 14-21
If the ad valorem rate for an AD/CVD case is zero, an AD/CVD duty amount is not permitted to be
reported in the 53 record, pos 47-56.
If the ad valorem rate for an AD/CVD case is zero, a quantity is not permitted to be reported in the
53 record, pos 35-46.
If the ad valorem rate for an AD/CVD case is zero, the case type qualifier must be "A" in pos 22 of
the 53 record.
The case rate is transmitted in the 53 record, pos 14-21. If the transmitted rate is an ad valorem
rate (indicator "A" in pos 22 of the 53 record), but is not listed as a valid rate on the case rate link
for the reported case, this error will result.
If the filer transmits indicator "S" in pos 22 of the 53 record, indicating that the reported AD/CVD
case has as specific rate of duty, this error will result if the case details do not indicate a specific
rate of duty.
The transmitted amount of AD or CVD duty does not agree with the calculated amount for the
same element. The duty must agree to the penny, including rounding requirements.
There is no 47 record with code S (sold to party) or the identification number of this party. This
element is required for entry types 01, 03, and 11.
The identifying number for the entity listed as the 'sold to' party on the 47 (party identifier is S)
record is not found on the importer database. This is a required element in ACE for entry types
01, 03, and 11. If the reported ID number for this party is an EIN, all 11 digits are required.

The sold-to party reported in the 47 record (code S) is shown as 'void' on the importer file .
If a conventional ACE entry summary is transmitted with 63 record(s) to report PSC line change
reason codes, this error will occur.
A PSC has been filed with line changes, but the code transmitted in the 63 record is not found
listed in Table 15 of the Entry Summary Create/Update chapter of the ACE CATAIR.
A PSC cannot report the same line reason code more than once for a given line on the entry.

The identifying number for the entity listed as the 'delivered to' party on the 47 (party identifier is
C) record is not found on the importer database. This is a required element in ACE for entry
types 01, 03, and 11.
The delivered-to party reported in the 47 record (code C) is shown as 'void' on the importer file.

If no 89 or 90 records are included in the AE input, this error will result.
If the AE input is a consolidated entry summary, each line of the entry must have the same
country of export. If different c/e's are reported, this error will result.
If the AE input is a consolidated entry summary, each line of the entry must have the same
country of origin. (or same Canadian province code). If different c/o's are reported, this error will
result.
If entry type 03 is transmitted, there must be at least one 53 record with AD/CVD case
information.
ACE entry summaries must be certified for cargo release processing in order to report FDA data.
If the cargo release certification code of "Y" is not transmitted in the 10 record, pos 40, and FDA
data or a disclaimer is transmitted, this error will result.
PGA data on line release entries cannot have the follow up summary reported via ACE as of Dec
2009.
ACE entry summaries must be certified for cargo release processing in order to report DOT data.
If the cargo release certification code of "Y" is not transmitted in the 10 record, pos 40, and DOT
data or a disclaimer is transmitted, this error will result.
If an 89 record is reported, there must be at least one 34 or 62 record for the reported fee. This
error will also result if the 89 record transmits zeroes for the fee class code and no 34 or 62
record is transmitted
The 89 record, pos 6-16, must show a numeric value for the total fee amount by class code. If
this field is blank or has other non-numeric characters, this error will result.
If a fee is reported at the header level for the AE input (informal entry fee, for example), a 89
record for the fee is required. If the 89 record is omitted, this error will result.
An AE input with fees reported on the 62 record requires an 89 record to summarize the various
fee categories and amounts. If that record is not transmitted, this error will result.
There is an 89 record a reported amount for a fee class code that differs from the line level
amount for the same class code. This error will also result if the 89 record reports zero for the fee
class code amount and the there is no 34 or 62 record transmitted for the same class code.

Entries that report cargo subject to IRS excise taxes cannot be included on a periodic monthly
statement as of Apr 2009
Fee totals are transmitted in the 89 record, by class code. If the total amount of the HMF in the
89 record for a given class code is not equal to the 62 record totals for HMF, this error will result.

Fee totals are transmitted in the 89 record, by class code. If the total amount of the fee in the 89
record for a given class code is not equal to the 62 record totals for the same class code, this
error will result.
The 90 record field for total duty totals, pos 3-13, must contain at least one numeric character. If
all spaces are sent in this field, this error will result. [as of July 2009, the edit is not working
properly]
The duty amounts reported in the 50 record(s), pos 14-23, must agree with the grand total duty
amount reported in the 90 record, pos 3-13. If there is a discrepancy of any amount, this error will
result.

spaces are sent in this field, this error will result. [as of July 2009, the edit is not working properly]

The amount of IR tax transmitted in the 60 record, pos 6-15 must agree to the penny with the total
IR tax transmitted in the 90 record, pos 27-37. If the figures do not match, this error will result.

The 90 record field for total fees, pos 15-25, must contain at least one numeric character. If all
spaces are sent in this field, this error will result. [as of July 2009, the edit is not working properly]

The total fee reported in the 89 record does not agree with the totals from the various 34 or 62
records.
If an 01 entry type contains an 88 record, this error will result. The 88 record is only allowed for
reporting ADD or CVD amounts and cannot be used in any entry summary type other than 03 or
07.
The 90 record field for total ADD duty, pos 39-49, must contain at least one numeric character. If
all spaces are sent in this field, this error will result. [as of July 2009, the edit is not working
properly]
The 90 record field for total CVD duty, pos 51-61, must contain at least one numeric character. If
all spaces are sent in this field, this error will result. [as of July 2009, the edit is not working
properly]
The ultimate consignee identification number reported in the 11 record, pos 15-26 must be
matched, for an 01 entry type, by the ultimate consignee number reported in the 47 record for
each line of the entry. If there is a mis-match in the two numbers, this error will result.
If entry type 03 is transmitted, there must be an 88 record totaling the bonded/payable amounts of
AD/CVD duties.
The total amount of AD duties reported in the various 53 records, pos 47-56, does not equal the
total amount of bonded AD duties reported in the 88 record, pos 3-13. They must agree to the
penny.
The 88 record, pos 15-25, reports the total amount of payable (cash)AD duties from the sum of
the 53 records. If these two amounts do not agree to the penny, this error will result.

The total amount of CVD duties reported in the various 53 records, pos 47-56, does not equal the
total amount of bonded CDV duties reported in the 88 record, pos 27-37.
The amount of total payable CV duty reported in all of the transmitted 53 records does not equal
the total amount reported in the payable CV duty field in the 88 record (pos 39-49).
If the transmitted entry type is not one that encompasses AD/CVD reporting, the 90 record, pos
38-49, must be all zeros. If an amount other than zero is reported for such an entry type, this
error will result.
The total of all AD duties, from the payable and bondable amounts reported in the 88 record, is
reported in the 90 record, pos 39-49. If these two records do not match, this error will result

If the transmitted entry type is not one that encompasses AD/CVD reporting, the 90 record, pos
51-61, must be all zeros. If an amount other than zero is reported for such an entry type, this
error will result.

or line (63 record) level.
If data for a record is transmitted without the record ID (e.g., mpf fees without a '62' at the
beginning of the input line), this error will result. If a input record that is not a current record for
the AE input is transmitted, this error will also occur.
In a situation where a looping error has occurred, the A03 reject will identify which input record
has the looping error and the A03 will also identify the starting position (usually 01) in the record
that caused the looping error.
This error will occur if an input record is found that is not expected based on preceding records or
omission of records. For example, if a 52 record is transmitted, there must be a 50 record
preceding it with tariff information. In such a case, the A03 record will identify which record is out
of sequence.
The manifest grouping consists of a 22 record followed by up to 4 23 records. If this looping
configuration is exceeded (more than 4 23 records following a 22 record), this error will result.

The 52 record is used to report license information on an AE line. Only one 52 record per line is
permitted. If more than 52 record is transmitted, this error will result.
If the current version of AE permits a finite number of records (in this case, the number of parties
that can be included in the 47 record in version A2.2), and more than the allowed number of such
records are transmitted, this error will result.
This error will result if a record with multiple fields for quantity (50 record) are not used in
sequential order..That is, if there are two quantities to report, they must occupy the first two
quantity fields. If field one is used, and the 2nd quantity is reported in field 3, this is the error that
will result. The AX output message will identify the record with the error.
The action (add, replace or delete) code is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 3. If the code field is
blank, this error will result.
The 10 record, pos 3, requires one of three action codes "A", "R", or "D". If any other code is
transmitted, this error will result.
The DDPP is required to be transmitted in every AE transaction. It is transmitted in the 10 record,
pos 18-21. If this element is missing, this error will result.
The district port of entry is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 18-21. The field cannot be left blank
and must use a valid CBP entry port code. If either of these conditions is not met, this error will
result.
The entry filer code, transmitted in the 10 record, pos 4-6, must be active in ABI as a permitted
ABI filer and must be established in ACE as a permitted filer. If these conditions are not met, this
error will result.
The port of entry for the AE (10 record, pos 18-21) is not in operational status for the filer code
reported on the 10 record, pos 4-6.
The port of entry for the AE (10 record, pos 18-21) does not agree with the processing port code
in the B record, pos 4-7.
The entry port in the 10 record, pos 18-21 must equal the processing port in the B record, pos 4-
7.
If there is no ABE record (or ACE equivalent account record) for the filer code reported in the 10
record, pos 4-6 in the port of entry from the 10 record, pos 18-21, this error will result.

If the RLF port (10 record, pos 18-21) is not listed on the ABJ file for the filer code and port code
combination transmitted as the 'preparer', this error will result.
The entry number is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 9-16. An AE input without an entry number
will receive this reject message.
The entry number has the wrong check digit for the check digit factor currently assigned to the
filer.
The entry type code is required to be transmitted in every AE transaction. It is transmitted in the
10 record, pos 34-35. If this element is missing, this error will result.
ACE does support all entry types. If the entry type, transmitted in the 10 record, pos 34-35, is not
one of the types that are acceptable in ACE, this error will result.
The entry number in the 10 record is already on file in the CBP database with a different port
code. Be sure to check SSAI as well as ENAI in determining the pre-existing port code that may
be conflicting with the port code of the rejected AE.
An ACE summary may not be transmitted as RFL if a pre-existing, accepted, ACE non-RLF entry
is on file in ACE.
The filer has sent a complete AE input transaction for a delete action code in the 10 record. If a
delete of an AE entry summary is being requested, only the elements listed as Mandatory for all
10 record actions can be transmitted.

An ACE entry number that has a liquidation holding code cannot be deleted by an ACE AE delete
transaction.
The entry number transmitted to ACE has been transmitted previously to ACS.
A retransmission of an ACE entry summary that has appeared on a statement will receive this
error. Also, if the summary has been paid in and is not in reject status, and the filer retransmits
the AE, this error will result. Also, if an entry has been moved from one payment date to a future
date, no AE will be permitted until that entry appears on the second statement and is then
removed from that statement by an HP
If an ACE Entry summary has been scheduled for liquidation, a retransmission of the AE is not
permitted. This error will result.
The entry number in question is already on file in a different port of entry from the one listed in the
10 record, pos 18-21
Once an ACE entry summary has been paid in (or accepted if no money is due) via
statement/ACH acceptance, a retransmission of the summary cannot occur if the entry number is
in accepted status.
If the filer's ABE profile is set to "B" in the sequence field, a broker's reference number is required
in the 10 record, pos 22-30, on an initial "A" or "R" entry summary input transaction.

In order to use the 'add' action code in the 10 record, pos 3, the instant transaction must contain
the identical broker reference number as was transmitted in the original AE for the entry.

All "A" or "R" AE transactions require an electronic signature ('X') in pos 39 of the 10 record. If
that signature indicator is omitted, this error will result.
All ACE summaries require a signature which is transmitted in the 10 record, pos 39. The only
acceptable indicator is an "x".
Only a "Y" or space may be reported as the PSC indicator.
A PSC cannot be filed against an entry summary that does not exist in ACE.
A PSC with action code D (delete) is not permitted.
A PSC must use the port of entry that was used when the conventional entry summary was filed.

a successful PSC filed against it.
A PSC cannot be filed on a cancelled entry summary.
A PSC with entry type 01 or 03 cannot be filed if the conventional entry type is 11.
A PSC cannot be used to change the entry type to '01' for a conventional entry summary that is on
file as an entry type 03 (AD/CVD).
If an ACE conventional summary has one or more open validation activities in progress, a PSC
cannot be filed for that entry.
If a PSC is transmitted for an entry type 03 and an extension/suspension code other than 04 or 05
is attached to the entry number, ACE will reject the PSC
A 2nd PSC is not allowed if the entry status of the entry number is 'not liquidated', but there is no
future liquidation date assigned to the entry.
If an ACE entry is retransmitted by the filer after the AE has appeared on a daily statement
(regular or periodic), this error will rbe returned in an ACE AX output message if such
retransmission occurs prior to the issuance of the daily FINAL statement (periodic or regular). In
the event of this rejection, the filer has the option of using the ACS HP transaction to remove the
ACE entry from statement processing by using payment type 1. (will not be accepted for EIP or
RLF ACE entries, however).
If a Census Override transaction is submitted for an entry number that does not exist in ACE, this
error will result. (Check to see if the entry was filed in ACS)
This error message is generated in reply to a Census Warning Override input. The CW02 record,
pos 7-9, is used to specify which line of the AE contains the Census Warning that is being
overridden. The line number must be three numerics in length. If fewer than three numerics are
transmitted for the line number, this error will result.
