Response Code 66Q in the Automated Export System (AES) will transition from “Compliance Alert” to “Fatal” on July 13, 2022, this will be a considerable upgrade to the system which hopefully will alleviate some supply chain issues. The Response Message 66Q was initially deployed on January 13, 2022 for exports filed under the license type “C33: No License Required (NLR)”. If a filer selects License Type C33, they are subject to the terms, provisions, and conditions described in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) in 15 CFR Parts 730-774.
Under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), an item may require a BIS export license or license exception and may not be exported under the License Type C33 NLR depending on the reason for control of the ECCN and Country of Destination.
Exporters, please be sure to review your Schedule B numbers, the accuracy of the reported ECCN, Country of Destination, and License Type (15 CFR Parts 730-774). If AES filing triggers the fatal error for mismatch, and you feel that all three fields are reported correctly, you may contact BIS via email at ECDOEXS@bis.doc.gov and inquire about the ECCN and additional licensing authorization that may be required.
If you have any questions, please contact your local Noatum Logistics representative.
