Exporters should be aware that their foreign customers may be required to obtain import and reexport licenses from their own government whether or not an individually validated U.S. export license is required. BIS strongly encourages U.S. exporters to know whether foreign customers are obligated to obtain licenses. As a best practice, prior to shipment, BIS recommends U.S. exporters provide foreign customers with the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) of items to be exported and request a copy of any required licenses.

Failure of a foreign customer to honor a request to provide a copy of any required licenses would present a "red flag" that indicates an export may be destined for an inappropriate end use, end user or destination. (For "red flag" guidance, see Supplement No. 3 to Part 732 of the EAR.)

Officials of Hong Kong's Singapore's, and the United Arab Emirate's trade agencies recently requested that BIS remind U.S. exporters of their licensing requirements. Information on those requirements may be found at:
