CBP Publishes AES Penalty Guidelines 
********************************************************************** 
 
On January 2, 2009, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
published Guidelines for the Imposition and Mitigation of Civil 
Penalties for Failure to Comply with the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) 
in 15 CFR Part 30.  The document provides assessment and mitigation 
guidelines for violations of the FTR published by the Census Bureau 
on June 2, 2008. 
The FTR requires mandatory filing of export information through the 
Automated Export System (AES) or AESDirect for all shipments where export 
information is required.  The penalty provisions that will be administered 
by the CBP are set forth in sections 30.71 and 30.72 of the FTR. 
The guidelines are effective on February 1, 2009 for violations occurring 
on or after February 1, 2009. 
For additional information please contact Ms. Susan Terranova at 
202-325-0009 or Mr. Christopher Pappas at 202-325-0109.
