ATLAS export: these important changes are planned until the end of July 2023

Important ATLAS export changes: Changeover to the new AES 3.0 release planned by the end of July 2023

With ATLAS Release 9.1/AES Release 3.0, serious changes are imminent. These affect both the technical and the functional side of future customs declarations. The Federal Information Technology Center summarizes the main changes affecting ATLAS participants in ATLAS message 0137/21 dated February 24, 2021.

Extensive adjustments due to changed specifications of the UCC

The messages in the area of export have been adapted very extensively to the requirements of the UCC. In addition to these extensive changes within the messages (structure and content), messages have been renamed, new messages have been created and procedures have been adapted. All changes will be implemented and post-certified by Mercoline in a new M.SecureTrade ATLAS release.
