ACEP (Approved Continuous Examination Program) 

ACEP (Approved Continuous Examination Program)  Definition:

ACEP is a program established by customs authorities to regularly examine the state of containers for potential risks, dangers, and defects.

Custom authorities utilize ACEP to streamline containers' hectic clearance and inspection process to approve them within the set terms. Most container shipping companies like Container Transport use this inspection scheme to ensure consistent compliance with container safety regulations. The ACEP process should be conducted by a qualified and competent expert and cover all the required aspects of the container. Generally, it's the container owner's responsibility to conduct ACEP regularly..
