Export Licensing

Export compliance includes a range of activities, such as determining whether a product or technology is subject to export control regulations, obtaining the necessary license or approvals before exporting controlled items, and screening customers and partners to ensure that they are not involved in prohibited activities.

Export compliance is particularly important for companies that deal with products or technologies that are subject to export controls, such as military or dual-use goods, which have both civilian and military applications.

Effective export compliance programs require a deep understanding of the complex and evolving regulatory landscape, as well as close collaboration between legal, regulatory, and operational teams.

Businesses must also maintain detailed records and be prepared to respond to regulatory inquiries or audits. Failure to comply with export control regulations can result in significant legal and financial consequences, including fines, penalties, and loss of export privileges.

ITAR Licensing

ITAR Related Licenses

Any US company or individual involved in the manufacture, export, sale, or distribution of defense articles, service, or related technical data that are listed on the US Munitions List (USML) must comply with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and obtain an ITAR license.

ITAR licensing requirements also apply to companies or individuals who provide defense services such as training, design, development, or testing services for defense articles. Additionally, non-US companies or individuals who seek to import US-origin defense articles or technical data must comply with ITAR regulations and obtain an appropriate license.

ITAR regulations are strict, and non-compliance can result in severe penalties and legal consequences. Therefore, it is essential to consult with an experienced ITAR consultant or attorney to ensure full compliance with the regulations.

EAR Licensing

EAR licensing refers to the licensing requirements established under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) which are a set of regulations administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the US Department of Commerce. The EAR controls the export and re-export of commercial items that are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.

The EAR regulates the export of non-defense-related commercial items that may have military applications or dual-use items. Dual-use items are goods, software, or technology that have both commercial and military applications, such as high-tech electronics, software, chemicals, or telecommunications equipment.

Globaleyes can help you determine whether or not your product, software, technology, or services are subject to EAR and whether it needs a license from BIS for export.
