About Licensing

Before you export, you need to determine whether your product, technology, or activity might need an export license.

  • Apply for a license

    Does your item require a license? Apply for a license using the Simplified Network Application Process Redesign (SNAP-R) application.
  • System for Tracking Export License (STELA)

    Utilize STELA to find out the status of your license application.
  • Classify your item (CCL)

    There are three ways to determine the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) for your product.
  • Contact a counselor
