Exporters often ask: “How should I report a shipment for goods with the same schedule B, but composed of domestic and foreign origin?”
You want to be sure that you are accurately identifying the origin of your goods in order to properly file. So, if you are unsure as to whether your item should be reported as domestic or foreign, keep the following in mind:
After properly identifying the origin of your goods, you need to determine how the information should be filed in the AES. In Section 30.6 (a)(11) of the Foreign Trade Regulations , it states that items of domestic or foreign origin under the same Schedule B number should be reported separately.
If your items of domestic or foreign origin are valued less than $2,500 separately, those items do not require an AES filing and the low value exemption citation, NOEEI 30.37(a), can be used. However, when either the domestic and/or foreign component of the shipment is valued over $2,500 an AES filing is required. Report ‘D’ for domestic and ‘F’ for items that are foreign.
