Mandatory AES Rule Effective Today

This is a reminder that today is the effective date of the the final rule issued by the Census Bureau on June 2, 2008 requiring that all Electronic Export Information (formerly known as Shipper's Export Declarations or SEDs) be filed via the Automated Export System (AES) prior to the departure of the cargo from the U.S.

The Census Bureau has adopted a 120 day implementation period. During the 120-day implementation phase, the Census Bureau will use “informed compliance” to reach out to filers identified as violating provisions of the AES rule. Parties submitting paper SEDs after September 30, 2008 will be considered to be in violation of the Foreign Trade Regulations and can be subject to monetary penalties.

The new AES filing deadlines for non-USML shipments set forth in the final rule are:

Sea: 24 hours prior to departure
Truck: 1 hour prior to truck arriving at U.S. border
Air: 2 hours prior to scheduled departure time
Rail: 2 hours prior to train arriving at U.S. border
Mail: 2 hours prior to export

Pursuant to section 123.22(b) of the ITAR, the AES filing deadlines for USML shipments remain as follows:

Air: 8 hours prior to scheduled departure time
Truck: 8 hours prior to truck arriving at U.S. border
Rail: 24 hours prior to train arriving at U.S. border
Sea: 24 hours prior to departure

In addition, for those using AESDirect to file EEI should be aware that starting on October 1, 2008 AESDirect will have heightened security measures and user authentication practices. These changes include:

- Individual User Account Administration
- Stronger Password Requirements
- Shorter Password Expiration Time frames
- Automatic Inactive Account Deactivation
- Session Timeout/Concurrent Login Limit
- Account Lockout after 3 Unsuccessful Logins
- New Account Administration Functions
