Export Compliance Overview

Most of Micro-Coax’s products are considered “Dual Use” (Commercial Application and Military Use). As a result, Micro-Coax is governed by 2 sets of Regulations – Department of State (ITAR) and Department of Commerce (EAR). It is Micro-Coax’s responsibility as an Exporter to ensure proper classification of controlled goods and to “Know its Customers” per Department of Commerce guidelines in Supplement 3 to Part 732 of the EAR (https://wwwbis.doc.gov/policiesandregulations/ear/732.pdf).

  • Under no circumstances, will Micro-Coax sell products contrary to U.S. Export regulations and laws.
  • All parties to U.S. Export transactions must ensure their exports fully comply with all statutory and regulatory requirements.
  • Compliance not only involves controlled goods and technologies, but also restrictions on shipping to certain countries, companies, organizations, and/or individuals
  • Hiring an agent, whether a freight forwarder or some other agent, to perform various export tasks, does not relieve Micro-Coax of its compliance responsibilities.
  • Micro-Coax must adhere to ITAR notifications by Customers.
  • Under the “Know your Customers” guidelines, we must understand:
    • What is the product you are purchasing?
    • What is the final destination of the product?
    • Who is the ultimate end user?
    • What is the end use?
  • If required, Micro-Coax must have all approvals in place before export of product or Technical Data.
  • If ECCN is requested from a customer and/or distributor, please send a completed End User Statement form to Micro-Coax.

Who Will be Required to Complete a End User Statement?

  • All Customers with Foreign “Ship-To” addresses.
  • Those Domestic customers we know or believe will export our product.
  • Information on Form is cross-checked with “Consolidated Screening List” that is accessed via the BIS web site (www.bis.doc.gov) to validate customer/end-user is not:
    • In a Restricted Country (i.e. on the Nonproliferation Sanction list);
    • On the Denied list;
    • On Debarred List (i.e. not allowed to order defense articles);
    • On the Specially Designated Nationals List
  • If there are questions related to information contained on the End User Statement we will be consulted for feedback.
