The U.S. Census Department requires exporters to submit Electronic Export Information, or EEI, on shipments to most foreign destinations if those shipments are valued at $2,500 or more per Schedule B code. Exporters must file that information through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) portal, which is maintained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Exporters need to know how to file that information correctly. They want to make sure they are complying with regulations while doing it quickly and easily, so it doesn’t become a burden. Fortunately, you can do both.
