The transition from AGS to DMS has the full attention of almost all Dutch economic operators, however, there are also changes in the AES process. For this reason we would like to inform you in detail about the expected changes in the "Exit from the EU" process, known as AES (Automated Export System) Exit. Some of these changes may impact your current operations! The changes are due to amended EU regulations (Union Customs Code) and affect the registration of goods leaving the EU.
What is AES Going Out? AES stands for Automated Export System, a European automated system that supports the nightlife process. The introduction of AES Uitgaan will replace the current Export Control System (ECS). The purpose of AES Uitgaan is to better and more efficiently control which goods leave the EU. Between May 8 and November 30, you need to switch to AES. During this transition period, you can still submit old ECS messages. Once you switch over, you will be able to submit AES messages. After November 30, it is no longer possible to submit old ECS messages.
The Netherlands must comply with the requirements of the Union Customs Code (DWU) and AES Exit by the end of November 2023. This means that companies and stakeholders must take action and make the necessary adjustments to their systems for registering goods leaving the EU.
Stream Software has built an application that focuses on the "Arrival at exit" (AAX) data within AES exit, this in addition to the functionalities already present for port community systems Portbase and Cargonaut. Goods shipments leaving the Union customs territory must be presented at the customs office of exit. This is the customs office where the outgoing goods are loaded into or onto the outgoing means of transport. Presentation is done by reporting the arrival of the goods at the customs office of exit to the customs at that office. With the introduction of AES (Automated Export System), the following changes apply:
Purpose of the AAX: The AAX serves to report the arrival of the goods at the point of exit to Customs so that Customs:
We should note two exceptions:
Note: As of the introduction of AES, a late AAX will therefore no longer be accepted. This means that the exit of the goods will not be confirmed to the customs office of export and the declarant of the export or re-export declaration. The declarant then does not receive a Confirmation of Exit (CoE), unless he still demonstrates the exit to the customs office of export with alternative evidence (the so-called enquiry procedure).
