BIS Announces New AES Reporting Requirements for License Exceptions
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has announced a new Automated Export System (AES) reporting requirement for exporters using certain license exceptions. Effective April 28, 2008, it will be mandatory to report the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) on the AES record when using license exceptions TSR, RPL, GOV, GFT, TSU, BAG, AVS, APR, KMI, TAPS and ENC to export goods, technology or software from the United States.
While section 740.1(d) of the EAR currently requires the use of the ECCN "for all shipments of items exported under a License Exception", AES has required the ECCN to be included in the AES record when using license exceptions APP, AGR, CIV, GBS and LVS only.
The complete list of AES license exception codes is as follows:
Failure to include the ECCN when using these codes will result in a "fatal error" message from AES.
The following is the complete list of the BIS, DDTC, OFAC and NRC license exception/exemption codes from CBP's Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirements (AESTIR):
