The Bureau of Census has advised that effective immediately, the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) tables have been updated in the Automated Export system (AES) to include the recent changes from Presidential Proclamation 9466 signed June 30, and effective July 1.

AES will accept shipments with outdated codes during a grace period for 30 days beyond the expiration date. Reporting an outdated code after the 30-day grace period will result in a fatal error.

The ACE AESDirect program has been updated and will accept shipments with outdated codes during the grace period as well.

The Schedule B and HTS tables are available for download here. The current list of HTS codes that are not valid for AES is available here.
