Update to License Code C32

AES Broadcast  03/12/2012          Broadcast  #  2012018


Update to License Code C32


Effective immediately, the classification EAR99 will no longer be accepted in the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) field in the Automated Export System (AES) when the filer selects License Code C32 – “No License Required.”

If EAR99 is the classification of the item and the transaction is designated as “No License Required” the filer should use License Code C33, which is for EAR99 items designated as “No License Required” and items under ECCNs having a reason for control of Anti-Terrorism only.

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) requires a 5-position ECCN from the Commerce Control List when License Code C32 is reported. The License Code C32 is for an item under the designation “No License Required” having an ECCN with a reason for control other than or in addition to Anti-Terrorism. The classification EAR99 does not meet this criteria and therefore cannot be reported under License Code C32.

A complete list of all License and License Exemption Type Codes and Reporting Guidelines can be found at:
