I get a lot of emails from exporters who are confused about whether or not their products require an export license. Their initial search through the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) indicate that they do, but then they hear or read about export license exceptions that may be available.
I've put together an overview that explains what license exceptions are and how they work. This discussion assumes you know the basics of export licenses. If you are new to the export license process, I recommend that you first download and read our free white paper, How to Determine if You Need an Export License.
