On June 29, revised export controls for shipments to China, Russia, and Venezuela will go into effect, requiring companies to adjust document procedures. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Business of Industry and Security (BIS) published these rulings on April 28, 2020 as a means to better monitor sales to military end-users and military end uses in the listed countries.
Unless an eligible exemption applies, from June 29 onward it will become mandatory:
• to declare all shipments to China, Russia, and Venezuela in the Automated Export System (AES), regardless of shipment value
• to include the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) for each line item reported in AES for these three destinations, regardless of the reason for control
