Export compliance has become an increasingly difficult area for many companies. With government automation of records and an active effort by U.S. government enforcement personnel, clients are increasingly being subject to export compliance verification questions and investigations. The penalties for non-compliance with respect to exports are significantly higher than for imports. Under strict liability, penalties can be as high as $250,000 per violation. Confirming whether or not a commercial product has an ECCN on the CCL is not a simple process.
Through our patented interview process, GTK ECCN guides you to the appropriate ECCN classification and documents the steps for record-keeping purposes. GTK ECCN is updated as changes to the Commerce Control List are published to ensure that you are using the most recent and accurate version of the CCL.
