Export Shipment Compliance Requirements

When shipping and exporting an item, either licensable or non-licensable, there are certain steps you should take to make sure you are in compliance with U.S. export laws and regulations. First, before shipment, the exporter should check to make sure no party to the transaction is on any U.S. government restricted party list. You must also make sure the proper destination control statement (either EAR or ITAR) is printed on all commercial invoices and packing slips, and if shipment is under ITAR or EAR licensing authority that licensing authority must also be listed on the export documentation. If the item being exported is licensable, or is a non-licensable item valued at over $2500 per Schedule B number, AES must be completed. Finally, the exporter is responsible to keep a record of all export documents to include invoices, packing lists, bill of lading, and AES print screen (if applicable-otherwise a notation of the ITN number), in addition to any licenses obtained for the shipment of the item, for a period of five years.
