CBP - Document imaging test for CBP forms 

June 24: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today released for publication in the Federal Register a general notice announcing plans to modify the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test concerning document imaging—known as the Document Image System (DIS) test.

The DIS test allows Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) participants to submit electronic images of a specific set of CBP forms and supporting information (and also certain “partner government agency” forms and supporting information) to CBP via a CBP-approved electronic data interchange.
