When the ECCN (Export Control Classification Number) comes up on export documents many exporters automatically enter EAR 99. For license questions NLR (No License Required) is often used as a default exception. These may be the correct entries but it is a good business practice to check and confirm. While freight forwarders can provide expertise in these areas the exporter bears primary responsibility for compliance. If you are automatically using NLR and EAR 99 you may be at risk.
