The ECO Program oversees BIS's seven ECOs and provides support to other U.S. Commercial Service Officers stationed abroad that conduct PLCs and PSVs as well as perform outreach and educational activities and liaise with foreign governments on export control issues. BIS ECOs are Special Agents on detail to the U.S. Commercial Service, and report directly to the Embassies to which they are posted. Several of these ECO positions have regional responsibilities extending the reach of their export control activities to twenty-nine countries. Export Control Officers are located at:

IOD evaluates end-users of controlled transactions (i.e., exports and license applications) to identify targets for pre-license checks (PLCs) and post-shipment verifications (PSVs). The results of these end-use checks are used to support future license decisions and evaluate the effectiveness of U.S. export controls. IOD also provides enforcement policy support to BIS and works with other U.S. Government agencies and foreign governments to provide information to facilitate effective export controls.
