Census Modifies AES to Implement Cuba License Exception Consumer Communication Devices

In order to implement yesterday's changes in certain aspects of the U.S. embargo on Cuba, the Census Bureau's Foreign Trade Division has issued Foreign Trade Letter No. 5 explaining the requirements for filing electronic export information (EEI) through the Automated Export System (AES) for shipments under new License Exception Consumer Communication Devices (CCD).

License Exception CCD authorizes exports and re-exports to Cuba of certain donated consumer communications devices, computers, and software to individuals in Cuba and to independent non-governmental organizations in Cuba. Exports or re-exports under the License Exception CCD may not be made to organizations administered or controlled by the Cuban Government or the Communist Party or to designated officials of the Cuban Government or Communist Party.

FTR Letter No. 5 also states that Census has modified the AES by adding the new License Type Code “C58” for the License Exception CCD. The AES filers who report “C58” are required to report CCD, regardless of value, in the license number field and the Export Control Classification Numbers 4A994, 4D994, 5A991, 5D991, 5A992, 5D992, or EAR99 corresponding to the License Exception. The country of destination and ultimate consignee reported in the AES must be CU.
