Determining your product’s export classification is one of the most important steps toward export compliance.

How else will you know what restrictions might be on any given international transaction if you have not assigned the correct ECCN or USML Category?

  • CCL/USML Overview

  • Understanding the structure of ECCNs and USML

  • Getting the technical resources you need to do effective classifications

  • Working classifications into the product development process

  • Developing tools to assist in classifications and document results

  • Submitting CJs or CCATS requests including new CJ electronic filing requirements

  • What to do about third party products?

  • How to use outside resources effectively

  • Classifying intangibles: technical data, software
