Whether you need an export license or not, it will be determined by the nature of the goods being exported, the destination concerned and the ultimate end-use of the goods.
- You may classify the item using the Commerce Control List (CCL) or write to the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) for a commodity classification ruling
- If a particular item is classifiable on the CCL, it likely will require a license for export, or re-export only to certain designated countries
- Items not specified on the CCL may generally be shipped without a license unless they are destined to an embargoed country, to an end-user of concern, or for restricted end-use
- If your item requires a license to be exported, you must apply to BIS for an export license. If your application is approved, you will receive a license number and expiration date to use on your export documents
- If your commodities are controlled by another agency such as OFAC or DDTC, then a similar licensing process maybe required prior to export unless an export license exemption applies to your shipment
