    This message is not intended for filers using AESWebLink and AESDirect EDI Upload. It is strictly for the attention of filers using the legacy AESDirect portal at aesdirect.census.gov and the AESPcLink application.

    The Refactored AESDirect system in the Automated Commercial Environment was launched on November 30, 2015. Now that the transition of portal AESDirect to the ACE Portal is complete, all legacy portal AESDirect and AESPcLink filers must register and submit the required Electronic Export Information to ACE at www.cbp.gov/ace. For information regarding the transition, please see our AESDirect Transition to ACE Refactored AESDirect page at http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/aes/aesdirect/transitiontoace.html.

    Please make sure you secure ACE Exporter access and take the necessary steps to begin filing in the Refactored AESDirect system in ACE. For questions regarding your ACE Account access, please contact the CBP Accounts Service Desk at 1-866-530-4172 option 1, then option 2 or ACE.Support@cbp.dhs.gov.

    As a reminder, your filing in the Refactored AESDirect system does not require vetting or Reports Authorization. Vetting is only required for those companies looking to obtain export reports access outside of the AESDirect Shipment Manager. For more information regarding the transition, please see our AESDirect Transition to ACE Refactored AESDirect page at http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/aes/aesdirect/transitiontoace.html.

    Shipments filed through legacy AESDirect and AESPcLink can be retrieved in ACE using the 'Amend AES Filing' option.

    For further information or questions, contact the U.S. Census Bureau's Data Collection Branch: Telephone: (800) 549-0595, select option 1 for the Data Collection Branch.
