The Validated End-User program for India is an innovative trade-facilitating program that will enhance U.S.-India high technology trade.
The Validated End-User (VEU) program benefits U.S. and Indian industry by facilitating high technology trade to qualifying companies.
VEU authorization reduces the licensing burden on industry by allowing U.S. exporters to ship designated goods to pre-approved companies under a general authorization without an individual export license.
Being approved for VEU status enables companies in India to receive U.S.-controlled technologies more easily, quickly and reliably.
Companies approved for VEU will:
Receive shipments of designated U.S. controlled goods on an expedited basis. After receiving an order from a VEU authorized firm for a VEU approved item, any U.S. exporter can immediately ship that item without having to first navigate the individual licensing process.
Have more certainty and reliability in receiving U.S.-controlled items that are included in their VEU authorization. If an item is included in a company’s VEU authorization, there is no uncertainty about whether an individual license application will be approved.
