Book - Roadmap To Export Success

    What information should I submit with my application to the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) for authorization to export an item related to chemicals, biologicals or associated equipment that requires commodity classification by the Department of Commerce?

    The Bureau of Industry and Security evaluates items in applications submitted to OFAC to determine whether the item is controlled on the Commerce Control List (CCL). Therefore, exporters should include technical specifications in their applications related to the control parameters on the CCL for the category of item they intend to export. For example, an exporter interested in exporting chemicals should be aware that some chemicals and chemical mixtures are controlled on the CCL, and should supply sufficient information to identify the chemicals to be exported. We encourage exporters to include the Chemical Abstract Service (C.A.S.) Registry numbers, if they exist. Exporters should also provide information related to the form, composition, and the percentage concentration of each component of a mixture to total 100%, so that BIS may classify the chemicals accurately and in a timely manner. The same need for specific details applies to vaccines and medical kits containing biological toxins, some of which are controlled on the CCL. Certain vaccines and immunotoxins are classified under ECCN 1C991. If you do not submit the information we need, we will not be able to classify your item.
