ACE Exporter Accounts and ACE Trade Export Reports

Beginning June 27th the ACE Secure Data Portal will support a new account type—“exporter”—for trade users. Establishing an exporter account will facilitate access to ACE Trade Export Reports that include export commodity data (current year and five years of historical data). An exporter account will be required to access the ACE AES Direct filing portal once it is available later this year. 

To establish an exporter account, see the instructions provided by CBP in the Trade Information Notice, available here.

The following training materials have been posted to prior to the June 27th deployment and communicated via the Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS):

  • An updated ACE Reports for Trade user guide, to include ACE Trade Export Reports
  • A quick reference guide on applying for an ACE Exporter Account
  • A series of videos on ACE Exporter Account set-up
