License Requirements

EAR

If an item is EAR-controlled, it may need an export license based on its Export Control Classification Number, destination country, the end user and the end use, if no exceptions apply. The application for an EAR license is a detailed summary of what the item is, who will be using it and for what, the identities of individuals and entities who will have custody on its way to the end user, its value, and other necessary information. Once submitted, it may take up to 90 days to receive the license.

ITAR

All ITAR controlled items require an ITAR license for export.  The application for an ITAR license is a detailed summary of what the item is, who will be using it and for what, the identities of individuals and entities who will have custody on its way to the end user, its value, and other information.  Once submitted, it may take up to 90 days to receive the license. 

  • The Export Controls Officer can assist in determining the ECCN or United States Munitions List ID of the item(s) you wish to export, or any exceptions which apply to the shipment.
  • The Export Controls Officer can also apply for required license with the Department of Commerce and assist with the Department of State application requirements.
