Embargoed Destinations

/n software products may not be exported or re-exported, either directly or indirectly, to any country embargoed by the U.S. (Cuba, Iran, Iraq*, Libya**, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) without prior authorization from the EAR and other applicable U.S. government agencies.

*Iraq is not on the embargoed list, but encryption products can not be exported to Iraq for non-US military purposes.

**Effective August 31, 2006, Libya has been removed from the US list of embargoed countries. An export license continues to be required to order, buy, remove, use, sell, loan, transfer, or otherwise service items that may have been unlawfully exported or re-exported to Libya prior to the lifting of the embargo. The U.S. Department of Commerce will review applications for such activity on a case-by-case basis and apply favorable consideration for civil end-uses.

Enhanced Proliferation Control Initiative

/n software products may not be used directly or indirectly in the design, development, fabrication, or use of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons or missile technology without U.S. government authorization.

ECCN: Export Control Classification Number assigned to a product by the BIS. An ECCN is an alpha-numeric classification used in the EAR under the Commodity Control List (CCL) to identify items for export control purposes.

License Exception: An authorization described in part 740 of the EAR that allows you to export or re-export, under stated conditions, products subject to the EAR that otherwise would require a license (unless otherwise indicated, these License Exceptions are not applicable to exports under the licensing jurisdiction of agencies other than the Commerce Department).

Mass Market/NLR: Mass Market products are eligible for export with NLR (No License Required) to any end user (including government end users) in all countries except the embargoed countries that are designated by the U.S. as supporters of international terrorism: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Mass Market products are eligible for de minimus treatment.

ENC/Unrestricted: ENC/Unrestricted products are eligible for export to any end user (including government end users) in all countries except the five (5) embargoed countries: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.

CCATS: Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System. This is the code number assigned by the BIS to products that it has classified against the CCL.

Foreign Nationals: A person who was born outside the jurisdiction of the United States, who is subject to a foreign government, and who has not been naturalized under U.S. law. This includes foreign national contractors and vendors. For the purposes of the US Export Administration Regulations ("EAR") a "foreign national" subject to the US "Deemed Export"† rule is an individual who is not a citizen of the United States, not a legal permanent resident (meaning not a "permanent resident alien" or "Green Card" holder.)

A U.S. export license may be needed BEFORE disclosing certain kinds of software or technology to a foreign national IF:

  1. The software or technology is export-controlled and
  2. The individual is a citizen of one or more of the following countries: Cuba, Iran, Sudan, North Korea, Syria
*Deemed Export: Any release of technology or source code subject to the EAR to a foreign national within the United States. Such a release is deemed to be an export to the home country or countries of the foreign national. This deemed export rule does not apply to persons lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States or to persons who are protected individuals under the Immigration and Naturalization Act - 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3).

Definition of "release" of technology or software. Technology or software is “released” for export through:

  1. Visual inspection by foreign nationals of U.S.-origin equipment and facilities;
  2. Oral exchanges of information in the United States or abroad; or
  3. The application to situations abroad of personal knowledge or technical experience acquired in the United States

If a U.S. export license is required or if you need additional information, please contact Dart Communications Business Office for further information.
