A U.S. Shipper's Export Declaration (SED) was a standard United States government form required for all U.S. exports with commodities valued at US$2,500 or higher. It has been replaced with the Electronic Export Information form (EEI).
If a single commodity's value within a U.S. export shipment exceeds US$2,500.00, then an EEI must be filed with the U.S. Census Bureau. The EEI is used by the U.S. Census Bureau to compile trade statistics and exert export controls.
Note: SED/EEI applies only to UPS shippers in the United States and Puerto Rico.
Choose one of these EEI-filing options with UPS:
- Self-file, free of charge, at AESDirect
- Print an EEI from a UPS shipping system, such as WorldShip®, Internet Shipping, or UPS CampusShip®.
