ITAR – International Traffic in Arms Regulations
The U.S. Government requires all manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, defense services or related technical data to be ITAR compliant. As a result of the Export Control Reform, many products that were subject to ITAR are now under the EAR.
What can happen if I ignore ITAR compliance?
Don’t let ITAR compliance be an afterthought. ITAR violations can result in fines of $1 million or more per violation, as well as jail time and debarment. These terrible consequences can be avoided by taking the time to learn about ITAR. Sign up for an ITAR webinar to learn how to comply.

EAR – Export Administration Regulations
Does my export require an export license? Maybe. U.S. export license requirement from the Department of Commerce may be triggered by a number of factors specific to your transaction. The actual item (commodity, technology or software) that will be exported, where the export is going, who will be using the export and what the export will be used for. Any of these factors may change your license requirement. Sign up for our EAR course to learn how to verify if a license is required and train your staff on how to comply!

Export License FAQs
How do I know if my shipment requires an export license?
The first step is knowing your item’s Export Control Classification Number (ECCN). ECCN entries are found on the Commerce Control List (CCL) and identify reasons for control which indicate licensing requirements to certain destinations. Other reasons an export license may be required for your shipment relate to concerns about who your customer is and how the item will be used.
Do the licensing requirements change depending on how I’m sending the item?
Generally, no (see Part 734 of the EAR for limited exceptions). Export license requirements usually stay the same regardless of the method of shipment or transmission. This includes technology shipments as well. Technology may be exported via the Internet or items hand-carried in a briefcase.
What if the value of my export is under $2,500?
The value of the shipment does not affect the export license requirements. However, the value of the shipment may affect the availability of a license exception (LVS or GFT), and the requirements for filing an AES record. If an export license is required then the AES filing is also required.
I am a new employee, and I found paperwork from prior exports. Can I use the same information again for new exports?
Not necessarily. Export license requirements are transaction specific. If the item, country of destination, end user or end use has changed, the type of authorization for which the export is eligible could also change. The EAR requirements might also have changed in the interim between the transactions.
