International Import Certificate Proposed Changes

Proposed Changes to the International Import Certificate Requirements

A proposed revision to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) would eliminate the need for exporters to secure an International Import Certificate before getting a license. This proposed rule change recognizes the decreased utility of the IIC (as most other nations no longer require exporters to secure them) and seeks to eliminate unnecessary administrate burdens imposed on exporters.

Exports remaining in the “Americas” (the Western Hemisphere with the exception of Cuba) that are not firearms or related commodities would no longer need any support documentation before exporting. Firearms going to countries in the Americas require FC import certificates. Additionally, any controlled cameras valued over $5,000, computers regardless of value, or licensable good valued over $50,000 going to the People’s Republic of China requires a PRC End-User Statement. Finally, a Statement by Ultimate Consignee and Purchaser is required only for controlled goods valued over $50,000 (previously $5,000) going to any country that is not the PRC or in the Americas.
