What Is EAR Compliance?

Regulation Of Dual Use items is a big deal...

These types of goods and related technical data are any items that are made for commercial use but could also have military applications.

The EAR regulates the export of dual-use goods or technologies, with some exports requiring licenses based on the item’s characteristics, foreign country destination, and the intended use.



It costs nothing to find out how we can help. Each organization has it’s own unique challenges and path to achieving compliance. The first step to getting this solved is a simple phone call you can make right now.

A complete list of EAR-controlled items are outlined in the Commerce Control List. This list breaks down various categories for different types of EAR-controlled items based on their function, intended use, and application. The ten broad categories covered in the CCL are:

  • Nuclear Materials, Facilities, and Equipment, and Miscellaneous
  • Materials, Chemicals, Microorganisms, and Toxins
  • Materials Processing
  • Electronics
  • Computers
  • Telecommunications and Information Security
  • Lasers and Sensors
  • Navigation and Avionics
  • Marine
  • Propulsion Systems, Space Vehicles, and Related Equipment

Along with the broad categorization found in the CCL, additional restrictions can be applied to EAR-controlled goods and technologies based on their destination, party receiving the shipment, and the intended use of the goods or technology.

What is the difference between EAR and ITAR?

There are several differences between the ITAR and EAR for trade compliance. In the simplest terms, the ITAR regulates the export of defense articles and defense services. Put another way. the EAR is “everything else that is not controlled by the ITAR.”
