AES Broadcast 10/25/2007			Broadcast # 2007031
License Type C57- Validated End User
In the June 2007 AES broadcast #2007021, the U.S. Census Bureau, 
         Foreign Trade Division announced the creation of a new license 
         type C57- Validated End-User (VEU).  This license type was the result 
         of the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) 
         final rule on exports destined to China under Authorization 
         Validated End-User (VEU).
On October 19, 2007, BIS published the names of five initial VEUs, 
         thus making the reporting of this license type active in AES for 
         authorized exports to those five VEUs in China.  For more information, 
         please refer to the Export Administration Regulations on the BIS 
         web site at
For AES reporting requirements of license type C57, please see 
         Appendix F of the Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirements (AESTIR): 
All AESPcLink users will need to update their AESDirect code tables 
         to reflect the update of the License Codes.  Users of AESDirect who 
         file via the website at will have their code tables 
         updated automatically via the program.
For further information or questions, contact the U.S Census Bureau AES Branch at
