Export Control Classification Numbers
Each MEAS business group maintains a product matrix that identifies nuclear, military and dual-use products that require export or re-export licenses for international shipments. To obtain the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) relevant to a particular product, please contact your local sales office or the ECT at firstname.lastname@example.org.
US export controls regulate the shipment of products and technology of US origin that are re-exported to parties and places around the world. If you are exporting or re-exporting Measurement Specialties products of US origin, it is your responsibility to ascertain your compliance obligations in accordance with the requirements of the US export laws and regulations, as well as any local export laws and regulations that may apply. Measurement Specialties recommends consulting legal counsel or the applicable government agencies in your particular country.
Measurement Specialties products, components and technical information of US origin that are specifically designed, developed, configured, adapted, or modified for a military application and are identified on the United States Munitions List (USML) are controlled for export by the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). Export of US products, components and/or technical information of this type likely requires an export license or related approval from the DDTC.
Measurement Specialties products and components of US origin that are specifically designed or prepared for a nuclear reactor or plant are controlled for export and likely require a license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). These controls apply in particular to exports of products and components for use inside the containment area of nuclear power plants. Note that certain technical information (technology) related to the production of nuclear material or related to the components and products especially designed or prepared for use with a nuclear reactor may be controlled for export by the Department of Energy.
Measurement Specialties products and technology intended for use in legitimate commercial applications may also be diverted to military, nuclear or terrorist applications. A variety of these dual-use US-origin Measurement Specialties products and technology require export licenses from Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). Products manufactured in other countries or technology developed in other countries must comply with the laws and regulations of the national regulatory agencies controlling exports of dual use items and technologies in those countries.
