Export License Assistance

Export licenses are creating temporary headaches for companies as they struggle to understand how the waves of export control reforms will change their business processes. In light of the new “600 series” and export control reforms, companies usually need advice on the product’s jurisdiction (EAR or ITAR) and then the product’s classification (ECCN or USML Category). Often our clients seek assistance with the entire export license process, from classifying the item(s) to submitting applications to the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) or the Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC).
