BIS to Use Single License Type Code for EEI Export Filings Starting on October 1, 2016

U.S. exporters and freight forwarders should be aware that on October 1, 2016, the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) will remove License Type code C32, No License Required (NLR), from the list of "License Types" for purposes of filing Electronic Export Information (EEI) in the in the Automated Export System (AES).  

As a result, License Type code C33 will be the only License Type in AES designating an NLR shipment from the U.S. 

This change is being made as a result of requests from industry to simplify the NLR reporting in AES by using only a single NLR License Type Code. 

NLR is the export authorization reported in EEI filings for items classified as EAR99 or items on the Commerce Control List that do not require a license for the destination. 

However, exports of an EAR99 item to a country subject to anti-terrorism controls or comprehensive sanctions (AT Controls), a restricted end-user (i.e., a party on the BIS Entity List), or in support of a prohibited end-use may require a BIS export license and would not be eligible to be exported NLR.

Changes to License Type C32 will be accepted in AES for 180 days after the effective date (i.e., until March 30, 2017). In the meantime, for items that have a reason for control other than or in addition to Anti-Terrorism (AT), License Type Code C33 should be used as the License Type in the EEI filing. 

A complete list of all of the AES License Type codes and reporting instructions for these types can be found at
