 Effective April 28, 2008 an upgrade version of AESPcLink, Version 6.8
         will be available to be downloaded.
 AESPcLink Version 6.8 will contain the following new features:
         Inclusion of Various Pop-ups 
 Pop-ups will be added throughout various points to reinforce the fact

         with the electronic filing of AESPcLink.  In addition, a watermark that 
         states "Do Not Submit To Customs" will be placed on all print versions 
         of the electronic export information in AESPcLink in order to reduce 
         duplicate reporting. 
 Amendment to the Kimberley Process Certificate Validation Process
 The editing procedure in AESPcLink will allow the License Number field 
         to be submitted "Blank" when License Code T12: Kimberley Process 
         Certificate (KPC) is selected for certain shipment scenarios.
 The shipment scenarios are:
 Shipments from the United States to Puerto Rico
         Shipments from Puerto Rico to the United States
         Shipments from the United States to the U.S. Virgin Islands 
 Updated BIS License Exceptions Reporting Requirements
