Legacy CSMS Archive Files
In preparation for decommissioning the legacy webpage, CBP has created a downloadable archive of all CSMS messages and attachments issued through the legacy CSMS system from January 1992 to June 2019, so that users may access messages that date prior to 2011. The legacy CSMS archive files will be available for download until September 1, 2020. If access to these files is needed after that time, users should contact their CBP Client Representative.

Information on the Structure of the Legacy Archive Files
The legacy CSMS data (messages and attachments) are organized in eleven zip files.
The first zip file, titled "CSMS Archive Data Master List," contains a master spreadsheet that includes all legacy CSMS messages from January 1992 - June 2019 (excluding attachments). Those messages that were issued with an attachment are flagged with an indicator in the "Attach" column.
The ten remaining zip files, organized by years, include all corresponding message attachments, stored in individual folders. To view a message and a corresponding attachment(s) (where applicable), follow these steps: Note: Before unzipping the CSMS files, users are encouraged to create a designated file folder in a convenient location (e.g. the Desktop folder) to facilitate CSMS file storage and access.
