ORDERING THE EAR FROM OCR/NTIS:

In order to keep costs down, NTIS is transferring more of the Export Administration Regulations subscription functions to OCR. NTIS will be responsible for program management and liaison with the Bureau of Industry and Security. OCR will be responsible for providing you with the EAR. Starting with the 2015 EAR, please renew your subscription by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or calling 301-208-0700 (ext112). Typically the cost for the subscription is $199 per year plus shipping, but is subject to change annually.

OCR/NTIS NEEDS YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS TO SEND YOU YOUR EAR UPDATE NOTICE

You gave OCR/NTIS your email to start your EAR subscription, but you must let them know if you change it.
