AES Response Types
[Support Center Home][Developers Center Home]
A fatal condition occurs when invalid data or a critical condition has been encountered. The filer is required to immediately address the problem, correct the data, and retransmit.
A warning condition occurs when certain incomplete and conflicting data reporting conditions are encountered. AES accepts the information filed to facilitate the trade. The filer is required to transmit a correction to the commodity data within four calendar days. If the shipment is left uncorrected, AES will generate and transmit a ‘warning reminder’ message back to the filer. The filer will continue to receive these periodic reminders until the data has been corrected.
A verify condition is noted when shipment data conflicts with U.S. Census Bureau parameters regarding a commodity or another unlikely condition is found. The data may or may NOT need correcting. The filer is required to transmit a correction if a correction is warranted.
A compliance alert condition is noted when a violation of the Foreign Trade Regulations has likely occurred (e.g., a late filing). The filer is required to review filing practices and take steps to conform with export reporting compliance.
An information condition results in a non-critical notification to the filer. No action is needed.
