On June 4, 2024, the CPSC published a notice to announce the expansion of the eFiling beta test pilot to include additional participants. CPSC will allow participation until they reach 2,000 volunteers or until an eFiling requirement becomes permanent, whichever comes first.

This expansion will allow importers of regulated consumer products to voluntarily participate in the test by electronically submitting (eFiling) data from a certificate of compliance for up to three additional years, or until the effective date of a final rule requiring eFiling. Beta pilot test participants will eFile certificate data to the CBP-authorized electronic data interchange (EDI) system known as the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).
