Removal of AES License Code C32
On June 9, 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau issued a broadcast informing filers in the Automated Export System (AES) that effective October 1, 2016, the Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) removed from AES License Code C32, designated for No License Required (NLR) shipments. BIS gave AES filers 180 days or 6 months to comply with this change. Effective April 1, 2017 License Code C32 will no longer be accepted and AES filers reporting C32 will receive a fatal error from AES.
License Code C33 shall be used for NLR shipments, except those classified with Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 600-series and 9×515 having a .y paragraph which will continue to be designated as NLR under C60 (DY6).
