Effective June 29, 2020, shipments tendered to DHL Express U.S. destined to China, Russia, or Venezuela must include either of the following:
Proof of AES EEI filing Internal Transaction Number (ITN)
ECCN or EAR99 for each line item on the Commercial Invoice or a Shipper’s Letter of Instruction.
Note: EEI filing for exports of items controlled by Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) not listed in Supplement No. 2 to Part 744 will not be required until September 27, 2020. Learn moreExternal Link / New Window
This is a new rule published by the U.S. Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).

ITN: Internal Transaction Number. Confirmation that the AES EEI was accepted and also the filer’s proof of filing.
AES: US Census’ Automated Export System where export declarations are made
EEI: Electronic Export Information submitted to the AES as part of the export declaration
ECCN: An Export Control Classification Number used to classify goods, technology and software to determine whether an export license is required.
EAR99: The majority of Commercial products are classified this way, and indicates that a particular item is subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), but not listed with a specific ECCN on the Commercial Control List (CCL).

The rule enables the U.S. government to more closely monitor exports, re-exports and in-country transfer of certain items, and broadens the scope of export-controlled items to include electronic and telecommunications equipment (i.e. PC’s, mobile devices and similar items), even if there is no military end use.

Please note:
The rule applies to all shipments to these three countries, regardless of value
This is a U.S. Government requirement and affects all air carriers
An AES EEI filing is required for all non-EAR99 items, regardless of value
EAR99 items will not require an EEI submission if under $2,500 per
HTS/Schedule B
