Enhancements to AES Edits on BIS Licensed Exports


AES Broadcast  03/12/2012          Broadcast  #  2012019

Enhancements to AES Edits on BIS Licensed Exports

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

Effective April 11, 2012 additional AES edits will be placed on Electronic Export Information reported under AES License Codes C30 (BIS Licenses), C31 (BIS Special Comprehensive Licenses) and C51 (BIS License Exception Agricultural Commodities AGR) to improve statistics on licensed exports and prevent inadvertent errors.

The new AES reporting requirements will be as follows:

When License Code C30 is reported in AES, only licenses authorized by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and begin with “D” will be accepted. If the license number begins with a character other than “D”, the EEI will be rejected with Fatal Error Response Code: 549 - BIS LICENSE NBR NOT VALID FOR LICENSE CODE.

When License Code C31 is reported in AES, only licenses authorized by the BIS and begin with “S” or “V” will be accepted. If the license number begins with a character other than “S” or “V”, the EEI will be rejected with Fatal Error Response Code: 549 - BIS LICENSE NBR NOT VALID FOR LICENSE CODE.

When License Code C51 is reported in AES, only License Exception Agricultural Commodities (AGR) notice confirmation numbers issued by the BIS beginning with “F” will be accepted. If the number begins with a character other than “F”, the EEI will be rejected with Fatal Error Response Code: 549 - BIS LICENSE NBR NOT VALID FOR LICENSE CODE. The license exception symbol “AGR” will no longer be allowed in the Export License Number field for License Code C51. “AGR” notice confirmation numbers will no longer be allowed to be reported under License Code C30.

Each of the license numbers or notice confirmation numbers reported under License Codes C30, C31 and C51 must be valid. If invalid, AES will reject the EEI with Fatal Error Response Code: 545 - BIS LICENSE NUMBER UNKNOWN OR INVALID.

The license numbers must not be expired. If the license expiration date is prior to the date of exportation, AES will reject the EEI with Fatal Error Response Code: 546 - BIS LICENSE NO LONGER ACTIVE.

A complete list of all License and License Exemption Type Codes and Report Guidelines can be found in Appendix F of the Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirements (AESTIR) at:
