Electronic Export Information (EEI)
(also known as Automated Export System (AES))

The Electronic Export Information (EEI), also known as Automated Export System (AES), needs to be filed when the value of the commodity classified under each individual Schedule B number is over $2,500 or if a validated export license is required to export the commodity. The exporter is responsible for preparing the EEI and the carrier files it with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) through the AES or AES Direct.
Your international order will not be shipped until we complete International Payment Verification and check the desired product for export compliance. Once again, we reserve a full right to cancel your order if it does not meet our export guidelines and policy.
