Document Number: 05-2926
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-02-17
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, Census Bureau
The U.S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau) proposes to amend the Foreign Trade Statistics Regulations (FTSR) to implement provisions in the Foreign Relations Authorization Act. Specifically, the Census Bureau proposes to require mandatory filing of export information through the Automated Export System (AES) or through the AESDirect for all shipments where a Shipper's Export Declaration (SED) is currently required. In addition to requiring mandatory AES filing, the proposed rule makes other changes to the FTSR. These additional changes are discussed in detail in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.
