Hong Kong Support Documentation Change

BIS published a rule on January 19th, 2017 amending the support documentation requirements for items being exported or re-exported to Hong Kong.  When the new rule goes into effect on April 19, companies exporting/re-exporting items to Hong Kong must obtain a copy of a valid import license prior to the export/reexport, if the item is controlled for one of the following reasons: national security (NS), missile technology (MT), nuclear proliferation (NP column 1), or chemical and biological weapons (CB). A written statement from the government of Hong Kong stating that the import does not require an import license is also acceptable. This statement may be used for more than one export as long as it remains accurate.

Additionally, prior to re-exporting items from Hong Kong that are controlled for the above listed reasons (NS, MT, NP column 1, CB) the company responsible for the re-export must obtain an export license from Hong Kong.
