you ship a commercial item from the United States
to a foreign destination, your transaction is
likely to be subject to the jurisdiction of the
U.S. Department of Commerce. The Bureau of Industry
and Security (BIS) within the U.S. Department
of Commerce has jurisdiction over the export and
re-export of ¡§dual-use¡¨ items (i.e., commodities,
technology and software that have both civilian
and military or proliferation applications). These
controls are implemented through the Export Administration
Regulations (EAR). If your item is subject to
the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Commerce,
you should first determine if your item is designated
by an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN)
on the Commerce Control List (CCL). The ECCN is
a key factor in determining whether you need a
license to export dual-use items outside of the
Commerce Control List can be found in Supplement
1 to Part 774 of 15 CFR or at http://www.bis.doc.gov.

is an ECCN?
Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is
an alphanumeric designation (i.e., 1A984 or 4A001)
used in the CCL to identify items for export control
purposes. An ECCN categorizes items based on the
nature of the product, i.e. type of commodity,
technology or software and its respective technical
parameters. Once the ECCN has been identified,
you can determine the reasons for control of the
item, which transactions may require an export
license based on the country of destination, and
which license exceptions, if any, may apply.
