abi software that keeps you compliant

Stay Compliant With Proactive Regulatory Updates

With tariff and regulatory changes happening all the time, it’s critically important to stay on top of changes to avoid potential delays or costly fines. That’s why our compliance team keeps the software regularly and proactively updated – at no additional cost to you. Plus, Magaya Customs Compliance includes the complete PGA record set for submitting FDA, NHTSA, EPA, APHIS Core, FWS, DEA, FSIS, NMFS, ATF, DTC, TTB, and AMS data to and from each agency as they become available in ACE. 

Automate your customs filings

Save Time and Boost Productivity With Automation

Parts automation saves time when completing FDA, EPA, and/or other forms within an Entry. Form automation uses data from one customs form to auto-fill another (e.g. auto-create an Entry straight from the ISF). Automated validation warns users when a tariff number subject to specific duties (such as Section 301) is used. Expedite the creation and submission of your Air AMS, ACAS, and Type 86 entries by uploading one Excel document for all three fillings and submitting them once the forms are completed. Plus, the creation of a Type 86 Entry is automated for Section 321 shipments, transforming a cumbersome, lengthy process into just two simple steps.
