Taking a straightforward approach by walking through a manual AES filing, this webinar will guide the participant step by step through all the standard filing requirements. By using this method, participants will benefit by better understanding a wide set of details ranging from filing requirements to data formatting. Even individuals or companies who work with EDI transmissions for AES will benefit from this complete review of every standard data requirement.

It’s a wise move by anyone in the export trade community to develop a solid base of knowledge about the AES filing process. You may be exempt from filing now, or maybe you have an IT service that handles everything seamlessly, but as an exporter you know things can change quickly. This webinar will help prepare you for manually filing AES, managing an AES filing solution, or implementing a new AES filing process.

If you have a shipping team or supply chain management group that processes AES filing, this webinar will be a perfect training tool for someone handling manual AES filings or filing corrections. From a new employee to a veteran, this webinar is a good start or a solid refresher course for anyone involved. This webinar is great even if you don’t do your own AES filings because it will help you to understand, audit, and manage what freight forwarders are filing on your behalf.

Who should attend: Exporters, freight forwarders, authorized agents, shipping teams, supply chain, or really anyone involved in the AES filing process will benefit from this webinar. “A Practical Guide to AES Filing” aims to help the viewers better understand what data needs to be reported to AES, when that data must be reported, and how to report it. If that sounds useful, then this webinar is for you!

This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Jonathan Young, who served as a military intelligence analyst before transitioning to an export compliance career in a corporate environment managing AES filings, export classification, and due diligence screening. Jonathan discovered early on that just understanding the juicy technical details is not enough, but communicating it to others is just as, if not more, important. He has trained groups ranging in size from one specialist to crowds of hundreds. Jonathan also has experience publishing documents, methods, and regulations used by the United States Air Force and Nissan North America.

Webinar participants are invited to submit questions during the webinar. The final 30 minutes of the webinar will be allotted to answering attendees’ questions. Each registrant will receive a copy of the presentation, certificate of completion, and access to the webinar recording.
