AES Downtime Policy Has Been Activated for All AES Filers


AES Broadcast  09/01/2011          Broadcast  #  2011046

**********************************************************************

AES Downtime Policy Has Been Activated for All AES Filers
**********************************************************************

This message is intended for all AES filers.

The AES system is experiencing communication issues.

During this outage all AES filers may submit shipments under the AES Downtime Policy. State Department licensable shipments cannot be exported under the AES Downtime Policy and must be held until communication is restored and an Internal Transaction Number (ITN) is received. Once the AES Downtime Policy is deactivated, all AES transactions for shipments that were exported under the AES Downtime Policy must be filed along with any new AES transactions.

AESPcLink users are encouraged to continue creating and storing shipments in a queue on their local computer for transmission when the outage is resolved.

If you utilize the AES Downtime Policy for export, please contact the port where you will export from. In lieu of the AES Proof of Filing citation, please use the AES Downtime citation which consists of the phrase AESDOWN, your individual company's Filer ID, followed by the date.

For example:    AESDOWN 123456789      09/01/2011

Please see the CBP web site for further information on the AES Downtime Policy:
