CBP FILING GUIDANCE

The following guidance is respectfully provided for your reference. When a product under FDA oversight is offered for entry into the United States, the U.S. CBP’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE system) will prompt the filer to transmit a code. When prompted, enter “ FSV ” as the Entity Role Code.
