Export FAQs

CHAPTER: Complying with U.S. Export Regulations
8. Are there any restricted countries where I may not sell my goods?
  ANSWER: You cannot think only of "restricted countries" because some U.S. export controls apply worldwide. Where you may or may not ship your goods varies with each transaction and depends on the nature of the goods, the identity of the proposed recipient of the goods, and the activity or activities in which the recipient is involved. You must determine that information before you can decide whether you need an export license. In some situations, the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) require an export license for shipments to any country in the world (even Canada, in rare circumstances). Part 746 of the EAR lists countries that are subject to embargoes or other special controls. Presently, there are seven countries for which shipment of almost all commodities requires a license for export. Those countries are Iran, Iraq, Libya, Serbia, Sudan, North Korea, and Cuba.
