Shipping/Transmitting items on the Commerce Control List
of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)

       

Question #10:


Are you shipping or transferring
items** on the Commerce Control List (CCL)*
of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)?

YES       NO


   *    The Commerce Control List (CCL) is maintained by the Bureau of Industry and Security (part of the US Department of Commerce) as part of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This list is sometimes called the "dual use" list, as the items on it may have either a military or commercial application.

   **    Items on the Commerce Control List are generally designated by categories represented by the letters "A", "B", and "C" following the initial digit in an Export Control Commodity Number (ECCN). Examples are ECCNs such as 4A994, 5B001, and 1C351.

  • "A" category = Systems, Equipment and Components
  • "B" category = Test, Inspection and Production Equipment
  • "C" category = Materials

(See an overview of the CCL's structure.)

If you have questions as to whether your item is listed on the Commerce Control List, please contact Victoria Jones, Research Integrity Compliance Officer or Brian Prindle,  Executive Director, Research Administration and provide them with your preliminary assessment.
