What is the EAR?

The EAR is administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) which is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. These regulations are in place to protect the national security of the U.S. Items identified within the EAR are that may pose a danger to our national security as well as that of our allies. Items listed include commercial products, software, and technology; they may be subject to export limits imposed by the EAR as well as a requirement for permission to export issued by the BIS in the form of an export license.

What are Dual-use Items?

The term “dual use” is often used to describe the types of items subject to the EAR. A “dual-use” item is one that has civil applications as well as terrorism and military or weapons of mass destruction (WMD)-related applications per EAR § 730.3. The EAR applies to dual-use and commercial items.
