New Destination Control Statement to be required on November 15th

As a reminder, the harmonized Destination Control Statement will be required by the State and Commerce Departments for export shipments starting on November 15.  Additionally, following implementation of this revision, the Destination Control Statement will only be required on commercial invoices (not on bill of lading, air waybill, etc. as is currently required). Items classified as EAR99 or exported under license exception BAG or GFT will continue to not require a Destination Control Statement.


The statement to be used is “These items are controlled by the U.S. Government and authorized for export only to the country of ultimate destination for use by the ultimate consignee or end-user(s) herein identified.  They may not be resold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of, to any other country or to any person other than the authorized ultimate consignee or end-user(s), either in their original form or after being incorporated into other items, without first obtaining approval from the U.S. government or as otherwise authorized by U.S. law and regulations”.  Additionally, for items under the jurisdiction of the Commerce Department, the exporter must provide the ECCNs for any 9×515 or “600 series” item being shipped with the Destination Control Statement. For items under the jurisdiction of the State Department, the country of ultimate destination, end user, and license number/license exemption must also be included with the Destination Control Statement.


Please contact our office with any questions on the use of the new Destination Control Statement.
