An annual self-classification report is a requirement for items exported under License Exception ENC - 740.17(b)(1) and Mass Market - 742.15(b)(1).
You will need a copy of Supplement No. 8 to Part 742 “Self-Classification Report.”
How to report:
The annual self-classification report must be submitted as an attachment to an e-mail to BIS and the ENC Encryption Request Coordinator.
What to report:
The report has very specific format requirements outlined in Supplement No. 8 to Part 742. The information in the report must be provided in tabular or spreadsheet form, as an electronic file in comma separated values format (CSV), only. CSV format is the ONLY format that will be accepted. Guidance on how to create the annual self-classification report in .CSV file format.
In lieu of e-mail, submissions of disks and CDs may be mailed to BIS and the ENC Encryption Request Coordinator as specified in section 742.15(c)(2)(ii) of the EAR, only if necessary.
When to report:
A annual self-classification report for applicable encryption commodities, software and components exported or reexported during a calendar year (January 1 through December 31) must be received by BIS and the ENC Encryption Request Coordinator no later than February 1 of the following year.
If no information has changed since the previous report, an e-mail must be sent stating that nothing has changed since the previous report or a copy of the previously submitted report must be submitted. No self-classification report is required if no exports or reexports of applicable items pursuant to an encryption registration were made during the calendar year.
