Decision Tree Tools


As part of the Bureau of Industry and Security's outreach efforts for the Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform final rule published on April 16, 2013, BIS has developed two new web-based decision tools that will assist users in understanding and applying the CCL Order of Review and "Specially Designed" Definition.

CCL Order of Review
The CCL Order of Review Decision Tool will assist users in understanding the steps to follow in reviewing the CCL.

Specially Designed
The "Specially Designed" Decision Tool will assist users in determining if an item will be "specially designed" under the Export Administration Regulations.

The Strategic Trade Authorization(STA) tool will help users of the License Exception STA determine if they are eligible to use and will be in compliance with License Exception STA.

Note: The STA tool is now updated for the 600 series and 9x515 ECCNs.
