BIS is pleased to introduce the first in a series of updates to the Single Network Application Process – Redesign (SNAP-R), BIS’s electronic system for the submission of license applications, commodity classification requests, License Exception AGR notifications and License Exception STA eligibility requests. These updates, which BIS is implementing at industry’s request, are designed to make SNAP-R more user-friendly and efficient. Additional updates will be implemented in the future. This batch of updates includes the following:

Security Questions: BIS is introducing security questions to SNAP-R to allow individual SNAP-R users to reset their passwords and login IDs and to receive a reminder of their company identification number (CIN), by themselves, without having to request assistance from either company SNAP-R account administrators or BIS. Current SNAP-R users can chose to answer four of ten security questions, which BIS will use to verify the user’s identity and automate the resetting of passwords and login IDs and/or the sending of with the user’s CIN. Existing users who chose not to answer the questions will be prompted to do so at future logins and, in the interim, need to continue to work with their company SNAP-R account administrators or call or e-mail BIS for assistance. Starting today, all new SNAP-R registrants will be required to select security questions as part of the SNAP-R registration process.

Instructions for existing SNAP-R account holders to set up security questions are here. 

Resetting Forgotten Passwords: SNAP-R account holders who have set up security questions and who remember their login ID and CIN will be able to reset forgotten passwords remotely, without help from company SNAP-R account administrators or calling or e-mailing BIS for assistance. Guidance on remotely resetting passwords is here. 

Forgotten Login ID: SNAP-R account holders who have set up security questions and who remember their CIN will be able to request and receive their login ID remotely, without calling or e-mailing BIS for assistance. Guidance on the remote receipt of login IDs is here.

Forgotten CIN: SNAP-R account holders who have set up security questions and who remember their login ID will be able to request and receive their CIN remotely, without help from company SNAP-R account administrators or calling or e-mailing BIS for assistance. Guidance on the remote receipt of CINs is here.

Work Item Reference Numbers: SNAP-R account holders are no longer limited to the previously required format (i.e., AAA####) for Work Item reference numbers. Additional information on this change is here.

Line Item Value Calculation: When listing the information for an export item on a license application, SNAP-R account holders can now choose to calculate the value of the item by multiplying the unit value by the quantity of items or to enter the total price of the item independent of the item’s quantity and unit value. Guidance on this change is here.
