Automated Export System

Know the Current Requirements and Penalties

It is important that you understand the current requirements of the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) and how to avoid penalties and possible seizure of your commodities. In addition it is vital to provide accurate and complete data in efforts to help the trade make sound business decisions. The Census Bureau now requires mandatory filing of export information through the Automated Export System (AES) or through the AESDirect for all shipments where a Shipper’s Export Declaration was previously required.  Penalties may be imposed per violation of the FTR from $1,100 to $10,000 – both civil and criminal – for the delayed filing, failure to file, false filing of export information, and/or using the AES to further any illegal activity. In accordance with the FTR, all parties to the export transaction are subject to the fines and penalties. Additionally, all AES filers are faced with new filing deadlines by mode of transportation for reporting export information.

The Foreign Trade Division is actively engaged in educational outreach to help you avoid these costly penalties.  We provide seminars and workshops both in English and Spanish to help you understand the FTR requirements.

The U.S. Commercial Service, Philadelphia, is partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau and Temple University's Fox School of Business Center for International Business Education and Research to bring you a much needed educational program in the greater Philadelphia region.
