While much of Homeland Security’s efforts over the past decade have been focused on importing, do not forget that there are very essential and compulsory requirements involved in the exporting of goods.

Electronic Export Information (EEI) is acquired and compiled by the government for official export statistics as well as export control to ensure that specific goods aren’t being shipped to undesirable countries, organizations or individuals.

As of September 30, 2008, all Shipper’s Export Declarations (SEDs) must be submitted electronically.


In an effort to modernize the procedure, the entire export compliance process is being transitioned to an electronic format that goes into full effect September 30, 2008. After that date, paper submissions will not be accepted and will be subject to penalties and fines. Fortunately, SmartBorder is, once again, one step ahead of the curve with our Export Filer application.

Designed and built utilizing the same cutting edge innovations that power our industry leading ABI and ACE solutions, you can trust it to increase your productivity while lowering your costs.
