EXPORT REVIEW PROCEDURES GUIDE


Note: If your item falls under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Commerce and is not listed
on the CCL, then the item is designated as “EAR99.” The majority of commercial products are
designated EAR99 and generally will not require a license to be exported or re-exported. However,
if you plan to export an EAR99 item to an embargoed or sanctioned country, to a party of concern,
or in support of a prohibited end-use, you may be required to obtain a license.
If the commodity is subject to the EARs, Mines uses Compliance Software (available through ORA) to review
entities, individuals, embargo information, commodity/activity along with locations and reviews the
Commerce Control List (CCL) to identify items, technology, or materials that:
1) require a license for export; 2) if no license required (NLR); or 3) if the export cannot be made period.

2. Commerce Control List items & their Export Control Class Numbers (ECCN).
Al commodities, technology, or software subject to the licensing authority of Commerce-BIS are included in
the Commerce Control List (CCL), found in EAR (Title 15, Part 774, Supplement No. 1). Individual items on
the CCL are identified by an Export Control Classification Number, or ECCN, made up of numbers and letters
to identify the commodity or technology. An ECCN categorizes items based on the nature of the product
(i.e. type of commodity, technology, or software) and its respective technical parameters. The CCL
categories are in Table 2, and the five (5) CCL product groups (A-E) are in Table 3, on the following page:
