If your freight forwarder is filing the EEI on your behalf via power of attorney, are you obtaining the Internal Transaction Number and copy of the EEI filing for your export sales records? If you are filing the EEI internally, are you completing each field correctly and ensuring that the information is true and correct? Do you trust your buyer’s agent to file the EEI when required in the case of routed export transactions, or would you rather maintain control of the filing?

Northwest Commission is offering ACE Portal Training on Thursday, June 2, 2016. This training program is designed to provide a high-level overview of the Automated Export System and Electronic Export Information Filing (EEI) requirements. The workshop educates attendees on the correct way to file the EEI in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) online portal. The teaching method for the workshop is comprised of lecture, on-line demonstrations and group discussion.  The relaxed atmosphere of the course allows for attendees to ask questions at any time as the seminar notes and meeting minutes are already provided to everyone in their workshop narrative book.  This format allows the attendee to focus on the presented subject matter and participate in group discussion.

The program will cover:

  • The New AESDirect in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE)
  • U.S. Federal Trade Regulations pertaining to EEI filing requirements
  • When is the EEI filing required and when is it not required
  • Demonstration on the correct way to complete each filed of the EEI in the ACE portal
  • Discussion of routed export transactions and the EEI responsibilities of the seller, buyer and U.S. authorized agent during this type of export shipment
  • Provide an understanding of best practices for communicating EEI compliance with your freight forwarder or authorized agent
