Census Moves to Give Exporters More Access to ACE

Excerpt from: International Trade Today | June 22 2015

The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Export Account Registration Form will be available this summer, and ACE filers will at that time be able to access export reports by Employer Identification Numbers (EIN), said a recent memo from the Census Bureau, according to an emailed notice sent by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security on June 17.

Census’ Automated Export System Direct (AESDirect) filing portal will also be “made available in ACE in Fall 2015,” said the Census memo. Census will allow export access for ACE import account holders for all EINs already created in an existing import account, and the agency will also allow those without import accounts to add new EINs under some restrictions.ace_logo_transparent
