Census Bureau Now Providing Exporters With AES Data Associated With Routed Export Transactions

The Census Bureau's Foreign Trade Division (FTD) recently started providing U.S. Principal Parties in Interest (USPPIs) and other filers requesting their Electronic Export Information filed in the Automated Export System (AES) with the 10 data elements required in routed export transactions.

Data associated with routed export transactions was not previously provided to USPPIs but was added by Census due to numerous requests from exporters.

A routed export transaction transaction is where a Foreign Principal Party in Interest (FPPI) authorizes a U.S. agent to facilitate the export of items from the U.S. on its behalf and prepare and file the Electronic Export Information (EEI) via AES. Section 30.3(e)(1) of the Foreign Trade Regulations (15 CFR § 30.3(e)(1)) requires the USPPI to provide the forwarding or other authorized agent with the following 10 data elements for purposes of preparing the AES filing:

(i) Name and address of the USPPI
(ii) USPPI’s EIN
(iii) State of origin
(iv) FTZ if applicable
(v) Commercial description of commodities
(vi) Origin of goods indicator: Domestic (D) or Foreign (F)
(vii) Schedule B or HTSUS Classification Commodity Code
(viii) Quantities/units of measure
(ix) Value
(x) Export Control Classification Number (ECCN)

The FTD's Regulations, Outreach and Education Branch will provide USPPIs with validated records of their AES submissions upon written request. This data is useful for companies conducting internal audits of their AES compliance. Census will provide companies with 12 months of AES data free of charge every 365 days.
