Proposed Automated Export SystemTrade Interface Requirements
The Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirements (AESTIR) (affected documents only) have been updated with the current proposed revisions to the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR). The “Proposed AESTIR” changes will become final upon publication of the FTR final rule. However, due to the Automated Export System (AES) upgrade, changes to the “Proposed AESTIR” will be effective at the completion of the upgrade. The AES upgrade is tentatively scheduled for completion after 09/30/2013 and a specific date for Fall 2013 will be given at a later time.
The current legacy AES and AESTIR will remain the system and document of record until the AES upgrade is complete. The “Proposed AESTIR (Foreign Trade Regulation (FTR) revisions)" will be maintained as a separate link (below) on the CBP website along with the legacy AESTIR.
