Interactive EAR

In January I posted about the BIS website re-design and noted the difficulty in reading and interpreting the CCL.

This month I am updating parts lists for a couple of clients and finding that the new interactive EAR does make it easier to navigate the CCL. The links to ECCN categories in the CCL and CCL Index are a time saver. The paragraph format for each ECCN is an improvement over the old chart style.

The EAR, like all regulations, will never be interesting reading. However, I see the new format as an improvement. BIS has a button on the lower right of their homepage asking what can be improved. Don’t be shy!
