The Center for Data Innovation submitted comments to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) calling for CBP and the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to enforce the requirement that 100 percent of international mail shipments have advance electronic data (AED). Because USPS has expressed concern that immediate refusal and return of inbound shipments containing goods not accompanied by AED will disrupt inbound mail, CBP should consider seeking a Congressional extension to December 2021 for full AED compliance, but make clear that it will not seek further extensions.
