An Exporter Account in the US Government’s ACE (Automated Commercial Environment) System

For AES filing in ACE, you require an Exporter Account in ACE.  This is the case whether you’re an Exporter, a Forwarder, an existing ACE Importer, or an Authorized Agent.  The type of account you need is an Exporter Account.

The process to obtain an Exporter Account is the same for all of these types, though it’s a bit simpler for those who have existing Importer Accounts.

First, start here – it’s the US Census page for ACE AESDirect and contains a How to Register link to a video you can follow.

If you have questions about the process, you can always call the government at 800-549-0595, option 1 for AES.  There’s an e-mail address as well: askaes@census.gov.

Once you’ve obtained your Exporter Account in ACE, you can start filing AES in ACE using Global Wizard. If you need assistance, please contact us or visit previous blog posts.
