Export Compliance

Altronic Research is responsible as an exporter to ensure proper classification of controlled goods and to “Know its Customers” per Department of Commerce guidelines in Supplement 3 to Part 732 of the EAR (https://wwwbis.doc.gov/policiesandregulations/ear/732.pdf).

  • Altronic Research will not sell products contrary to U.S. Export regulations and laws.
  • All parties to U.S. Export transactions must ensure their exports fully comply with all statutory and regulatory requirements.
  • Compliance not only involves controlled goods and technologies, but also restrictions on shipping to certain countries, companies, organizations, and/or individuals
  • Hiring an agent, whether a freight forwarder or some other agent, to perform various export tasks, does not relieve Altronic Research of its compliance responsibilities.
  • Altronic Research must adhere to ITAR notifications by Customers.
  • Under the “Know your Customers” guidelines, we must understand:
    • What is the product you are purchasing?
    • What is the final destination of the product?
    • Who is the ultimate end user?
    • What is the end use?
  • If required, Altronic Research must have all approvals in place before export of product or Technical Data.
  • If ECCN is requested from a customer and/or distributor, please send a completed BIS-711 form to Altronic Research.
Who Will be Required to Complete a BIS711 Form?
  • All Customers with Foreign “Ship-To” addresses.

    • On the Denied list;
