AES Filing Enforcement Delayed 180 Days to October 2nd 2014


Per the notice from the U.S. Census Bureau (Automated Export System) below, carnet users will not be penalized for not filing the EEI (Electronic Export Information) until October 2nd, 2014. We are still working on an alternative to the EEI for carnet users and hope to have a solution before the October 2nd deadline.

Questions and concerns can always be addressed to a Carnet Specialist at the boomerang carnets® Carnet HelpLine®: 800.ATA.2900 or 800.282.2900.

Notice of 180 Day Informed Compliance Period for Regulatory Changes

The U.S. Census Bureau issued the final rule implementing modifications to Title 15, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 30, Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR). The rule was published on March 14, 2013 and will become effective on April 5, 2014. This broadcast serves to notify the trade community that the Census Bureau, in concurrence with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), agrees to provide an additional 180 days to come into compliance with the new requirements.

During this 180 day period the Census Bureau and CBP will use “informed compliance” to educate the trade on the new requirements. During this time, no penalties will be issued for failure to comply with any new requirements found in the March 14, 2013 rule. Penalties may be issued for violations of regulations that remain unchanged from the FTR published on June 2, 2008. The period of informed compliance will take place from the revised FTR effective date of April 5, 2014 through October 2, 2014.
