If NLR is your default entry this is a wake up call. Thanks Jim Dickeson – Trade Compliance Geek #compliance
It’s finally happened. I’ve been saying for years that AES needed this simple edit check.
As you know, when you export an item with an ECCN whose reason for control is the same as the reason for control for your destination country, there is a license requirement. Either you need an export license, or there may be a license exception available. But if you filed the EEI in AES with the License Type C33 for No License Required (NLR), you would have a BIS export violation. No, AES wouldn’t tell you this. You’d just get the bad news at some point in the future. Along with a penalty of up to $250,000. Cha-ching!
