US Export Control can be a challenging topic for some businesses to understand. The U.S. Government controls exports of sensitive equipment, software, and technology as a means to promote our national security interests and foreign policy objectives. Under the current export control system, three different US Government agencies have the authority to issue export licenses: the Departments of State, Commerce, and the Treasury.
The Consolidated Screening List (CSL) is a list of parties for which the United States Government maintains restrictions on certain exports, re-exports, or transfers of items. The relevant US Government Departments have consolidated the export screening lists administered by the Departments of State, Commerce, and the Treasury into a common electronic format to facilitate the screening of parties to export transactions to ensure compliance with U.S. export control and sanctions regulations.
We have just published the free Export Screening List App for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows 8.1/10 that allows you to search for denied persons or entities on the CSL, consisting of the consolidation of multiple export screening lists of the Departments of Commerce, State, and the Treasury.
