The Export Control Officer (ECO) Program oversees BIS's seven ECOs and provides support to other U.S. Commercial Service Officers stationed abroad that conduct pre-license checks (PLCs) and post-shipment verifications (PSVs). Furthermore, ECOs perform outreach and educational activities in addition to liaising with foreign governments on export control issues. BIS ECOs are detailed to the U.S. Commercial Service, and report directly to the Embassies/Consulates to which they are posted. Several of these ECO positions have regional responsibilities extending the reach of their export control activities to forty-three countries.
