ACE, AES, PGAS, and Where We Stand
November 14, 2016

2016 has brought many changes to the trade community with mandatory dates for ACE and numerous PGAs (Partner Government Agencies) integration.  CBP published in January of 2016 the revised AESTIR (Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirements).  The AESTIR publication defined the requirements from PGAs with regards to AES transmissions.  JAS Forwarding USA, Inc. already has the ability to capture and report all the new required data elements electronically.

The PGA’s which require additional PGA data elements are:

  • Department of State – DDTC
  • Department of Treasury – OFAC
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service – NMFS
  • Agricultural Marketing Service – AMS
  • Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives – ATF
  • Drug Enforcement Administration – DEA
  • Environmental Protection Agency – EPA
  • Fish and Wildlife Service – FWS
  • Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau – TTB

As of September 20, 2016 only the National Marine Fisheries Services (NMFS) is mandatory.  Additional agencies are expected to announce mandatory dates into 2017.  JAS Forwarding USA Inc. Compliance is working on filing any export filings which require PGA data elements.  Contact us today!

On July 14, 2020, the President signed an Executive Order that requires Hong Kong to be treated as the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the purposes of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).  Hong Kong is now considered to be included in the entry for China under section 126.1(d)(1) of the ITAR and therefore subject to a policy of denial for all transfers subject to the ITAR.  The U.S. government is taking this action because the Chinese Communist Party has fundamentally undermined Hong Kong’s autonomy and thereby increased the risk that sensitive U.S. items will be illegally diverted to the PRC.
