United States Customs and Border Protection(“CBP”) published the Trade Act regulations in the Federal Register on December 5, 2003. The rule requires advance transmission of electronic cargo information to CBP for both arriving and departing cargo. In the Federal Register notice, CBP identified the AES as the system for transmission of advance electronic export data for all modes of transportation.
On June 2, 2008, the U.S. Census Bureau published amendments to Title 15, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 30, Foreign Trade Regulations, mandating the filing of export information by the U.S. Principal Party in Interest (“USPPI”) or its authorized agent through the AES or AESDirect for all shipments where a Shipper’s Export Declaration (“SED”) was previously required. SED information filed to AES became known as Electronic Export Information (“EEI”).
When do you need to prepare the EEI formerly SED to be filed with CBP?
Our firm offers assistance with filing such information and maintaining compliance.
