Export Control Classification Number (ECCN)

ECCN stands for Export Control Classification Number. An ECCN is an alpha-numeric classification used in the Commerce Control List to identify items for export control purposes. AN ECCN is different from a Schedule B number, which is used by the Bureau of Census to collect trade statistics. It is also different from the Harmonized Tariff System Nomenclature, which is used to determine import duties.

All ECCNs will have 5 characters, for example, 1A001, 4B994, or 8D001. There are 10 categories on the Commerce Control List. The first number of the ECCN identifies the category to which it belongs, for example, 1 = Nuclear Materials Facilities and Equipment, 4 = Computers, 9 = Propulsion Systems, Space Vehicles and Related Equipment.

All PennEngineering products are considered an EAR99 item.

EAR99 (Export Administration Regulations) is a different type of classification. It serves as a “basket” designation for items that are covered by the EAR, but are not specified on the Commerce Control List. EAR99 items can be shipped without a license to most destinations under most circumstances. There are limitations on the use ofEAR99. However, the majority of the commercial exports from the United States fall into this category.

Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code

The Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) has sole responsibility for assigning and maintaining the CAGE Code Master File. The CAGE Code is a five position code that identifies contractors doing business with the Federal Government, NATO member nations, and other foreign governments. The CAGE Code is used to support a variety of mechanized systems throughout the government and provides for a standardized method of identifying a given facility at a specific location. The code may be used for a Facility Clearance, a pre-award survey, automated bidders lists, identification of debarred bidders, fast pay processes, etc.
