The U.S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau) proposes to amend its regulations to reflect new export reporting requirements. Specifically, the Census Bureau is proposing to require mandatory filing of export information through the Automated Export System (AES) or through AESDirect for all shipments of used self-propelled vehicles, temporary exports and household goods. The Census Bureau is also proposing to modify the postdeparture filing program by changing the filing time frame from ten (10) calendar days to five (5) calendar days and only allowing postdeparture reporting for approved commodities. In addition to the new export reporting requirements and the modifications to the postdeparture filing program, the proposed rule would make remedial changes to the FTR to improve clarity and to correct errors. These changes are discussed in detail in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.
