What You Need To Know About EEI Authorization
Electronic Export Information (EEI), previously known as the Shipper’s Export Declaration, is an online/electronic declaration of merchandise leaving the U.S. for export to another country. EEI is required when the value of the commodity classified under each individual Schedule B is over $2,500 or if a validated export license is required.
Failing to properly file an EEI can result in significant delays or even penalties for the business involved. However, by understanding their responsibilities and following proper procedures, businesses can successfully navigate the EEI process and ensure smooth exports.
The EEI serves as a record of the product being exported and its accompanying details, like commodity classification, value, destination, and item descriptions. It's ultimately up to the exporter to accurately complete the EEI, but it's filed through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) system with U.S. Customs and Border Protection upon shipment.
