Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security has announced that as of Dec. 15 it has implemented a change to the standard language on validated export licenses to align with the change in requirements specific to destination control statements that went into effect Nov. 17.

The revised language (with changes indicated in italics), which BIS states will appear on all current validated licenses that are available for review or printing in the SNAP-R system. is as follows.

“The Export Administration Regulations require you to take the following actions when exporting under the authority of this license.

A. Record the Export Control Classification Number [previously “Export Commodity Control Number” – BIS characterizes this as a “minor change”] in the block provided in the Automated Export System (AES).

B. Record your validated license number in the block provided in AES.

C. Place a Destination Control Statement on all commercial invoices for shipments of items on the Commerce Control List.”
