BIS Issues Third Version of Commodity Classification Information Table
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) recently released the third version of its Commodity Classification Information Table that contains information submitted by companies regarding where to locate commodity classification and export controls information on company websites.
The latest version of the table now contains information from nearly 40 companies, an increase from the 17 companies included in the first version of the table.
This table is the result of an initiative launched in September 2008 by BIS to establish a page on its website where manufacturers could voluntarily provide information on the export classification of their products to customers and other persons that intend to export their products. BIS explained that they commenced this initiative in an effort to aid exporters in the licensing process and to assist exporters in complying with U.S. export and reexport control laws.
