In addition to the guidance in 740.8 (2) (c) the following three additional data points are required:

  1. Total Processing Performance of the item, as defined in 3A090
  2. Performance density of the item, as defined in 3A090; and
  3. Data sheet or other documentation showing how the item is designed and marketed (in particular, whether it is designed or marketed for datacenter or consumer use) 


Other guidance: 

The NAC notification is limited to six items. BIS recommends limiting the notification to one model number per notification. 

Only one ultimate consignee and one end user is allowed.  Notifications which include more will be returned without action.  A distributor may not be a party to the NAC notification.

You can track the NAC notification progress in STELA.  If your NAC is approved you will receive a NAC authorization number (Axxxxxx) to be used in your AES filing.

Exporters/reexporters should select export or reexport in box 5 - not "other" as indicated in the regulations. Be sure to add NAC in box 9.
