DHS/CBP/PIA-061 Air Cargo Advance Screening


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requires air-cargo and shipping companies to submit their electronic manifest information in advance to CBP under the Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) program. This advance information improves CBP’s ability to conduct risk assessments of incoming shipments in order to improve security and compliance with customs and other laws CBP enforces at the border. CBP is publishing this new Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to provide notice of the new mandatory requirements for ACAS participants, and to assess the privacy risks of its collection and use of personally identifiable information under this program.
