ACE Export Trade Reports

ACE Export Trade Reports will be accessible through your ACE Exporter Account. However, if you are not a current ACE Portal Import Account User or you have additional Employee Identification Numbers (EINs) that are not associated with your ACE account you will be required to complete the U.S. Census Bureau’s vetting process for each EIN new to ACE.

Note: You must request “Authorization for Reports” using your ACE Exporter Account for each EIN.

Vetting Process

  1. Print the Certificate of Authority (COA) form on your company's letterhead.
  2. Sign the printed form.
  3. Scan the signed COA form and e-mail it to
  4. Respond to any additional verification questions necessary to confirm your eligibility to access the requested reports.

The vetting process begins once all steps are complete and are handled in the order received.

If approved, you will be notified via e-mail and your reports will be accessible the next business day after the approval process is complete.
