Product Export Classification and Licensing Definitions
Following are definitions of key terms that relate to the export classification and licensing of ForeScout products and technology. If you have a question about how a ForeScout product has been classified for export, please refer to the ForeScout Trade Compliance Product Classification Guide or contact our Export Compliance team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BIS: Bureau of Industry and Security
CCATS: Refers to the Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System, or CCATS, number that BIS assigns to a commodity classification request.
Deemed Export: Under the EAR, an export is “deemed” to take place when technology or source code is released to a foreign national in the United States. Such a release is viewed as an export to that foreign national’s country or last country of permanent residence.
EAR: Export Administration Regulations
EAR99: Refers to items that are subject to the EAR but are not listed on the CCL.
ECCN: The Export Control Classification Number, or ECCN, is the U.S. term for an export classification code. An ECCN identifies the relevant category and paragraph of a classification, as they are maintained under the EAR’s Commerce Control List or CCL.
Typically, ForeScout’s products are classified under EAR99.
NLR: No export license required.
Export Regulations and Department of Commerce Controls
Exports, re-exports and transfers of ForeScout products, hardware, software, service, support, and technology are subject to control under the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”), as administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS“), and imports are subject to control under U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations. Diversion of ForeScout products and technology contrary to U.S. law is prohibited. Depending on where you reside, or the jurisdictions in which you operate, additional import or export regulations may apply.
Department of Treasury Controls
The export or re-export of items, that are subject to the EAR, to an embargoed or sanctioned destination (Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) without a valid license or license exception is prohibited. Further, the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control may impose additional controls on exports, re-exports, or transfers to these destinations.
Exports to entities listed on a U.S. government denied party/prohibited end-user list may be prohibited or proceed only if they have been licensed. Further information on these lists may be found here. In addition, exports that support the design, development, or production of biological, chemical, or nuclear weapons, or missile proliferation, are prohibited without prior U.S. government authorization.
