To submit an AES filing through Global Wizard, you need an exporter's account and be logged in with ACE before proceeding.

Before a user can submit to ACE, that user must be certified by the US government and provided a username and password. Visit this government website on how to create an account https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/aes/aesdirect/transitiontoace.html



The process to send data to AES starts with the user signing into the ACE portal with his or her authorized Exporter account.
