What Imports and Exports are Allowed When I Have a General Export License? 10 CFR Part 110 Subpart C  of import and export license requirements covers specific items requiring a general license that will authorize only certain items. If the commodity you wish to export/import is subject to NRC export/import licensing and not among those identified and authorized under one of the general license provisions, a specific NRC export/import specific license is required.

When Do I Need an Export License? A very small percentage of total U.S. exports and reexports require an export license. Less than 5% of total US exports require a license. You have to conduct due diligence to see whether your export requires a license or other export document. License requirements are dependent upon many factors. This is an area where Watson’s Import Export Business Consultants can help.

What Type of Firearms are Governed By the Commerce Control List (CCL Gun Control)? Under the CCL rules, the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has jurisdiction over shotguns with a barrel length of 18 inches or more and related  gun control components. BIS also has jurisdiction over muzzle loading rifles and handguns, air guns, replica firearms, shotgun shells and components, and most optical sighting devices for firearms.

Export Definitions Export Violations 

Small export business owners involved in the import and export control business can face serious violations for non-compliance. Such violations include fines up to $1,000,000 and/or imprisonment up to 10 years for individuals).

ITAR export controls penalties focus on individual violations. Therefore, having multiple violations can lead to an enormous amount violation penalties.
