§ 30.60 General requirements for filing export and manifest data electronically using the Automated Export System (AES).
The Automated Export System (AES) transmissions by exporters or their authorized filing agents that meet the requirements of this subpart constitute the Shipper's Export Declaration (SED) for purposes of this part. This section outlines the general requirements for participating in the AES. Several filing options are available for transmitting shipper's export data. The first option is the standard paper filing of the SED. The AES also provides AES participants with three electronic filing options for submission of shipper's export data.(a) Participation. Participation in the AES is voluntary and is designed to use technology available to both large and small businesses. Companies that are not automated can submit data through a service center or port authority that provides the capability to communicate with the Customs Data Center in the same way as automated companies.
Companies may also buy a software package designed by an AES certified software vendor. Certified trade participants (filing agents) can transmit to and receive data from the AES pertaining to merchandise being exported from the United States. Participants in the AES process, who may apply for AES certification, include exporters or their authorized forwarding agents, carriers, non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCC), consolidators, port authorities, software vendors, or service centers. Once becoming certified, an AES filer (filing agent) must agree to stay in complete compliance with all export rules and regulations.
(b) Letter of Intent. The first requirement for all participation in
AES, including approval for Option 4 filing privileges, is to submit a
complete and accurate Letter of Intent to the Census Bureau. The Letter
of Intent is a written statement of a company's desire to participate
in AES. It must set forth a commitment to develop, maintain, and adhere
to Customs and Census Bureau performance requirements and operations standards.
Once the Letter of Intent is received, a U.S. Customs Client Representative
and a Census Bureau Client Representative will be assigned to work with
the company. The Census Bureau will forward additional
(c) General filing and transmission requirements. The data elements required for filing shipper's export data electronically are contained in 30.63. For AES, the difference is that the certified filer must transmit the shipper's export information electronically using the AES, rather than delivering the paper SED to the carrier. When transmitting export information electronically, the AES filers must comply with the data transmission procedures determined by Customs and the Census Bureau (See 30.62 for AES certification, qualifications, and standards).
(d) General responsibilities of exporters, filing agents, and sea carriers--(1)
Exporter and authorized filing agent responsibilities. The exporter and/or
their authorized agents, certified for AES filing, are responsible for:
