De Minimis Guidelines

BIS offers an online tool for exporters allowing them to determine if their items made outside of the United States are subject to the EAR in accordance with the de minimis guidelines. If foreign made items incorporate controlled US items or technology, it is important to consider if these items are under the control of the EAR. This tool can be found at
