The United States Government regulates the export and in-country transfer of night vision equipment and dual-use items – items that can be used for military as well as for civilian applications. The Department of State through the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) enforces the International Trade in Arms Regulations (Title 22, Code of Federal Regulations Part 120-130) while the Department of Commerce, through the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) enforces the Export Administration Regulations (Title 15, Code of Federal Regulations Part 730-780).
Depending on the country of destination, the parties involved and the classification of the product, an export license might be required from the Department of Commerce or the Department of State. It is Sellmark Corporation’s policy to comply with all applicable export laws and regulations. Under no circumstances, will Sellmark Corporation export products without obtaining an export license from relevant export authorities.
It is unlawful to export, re-export, attempt to export or transfer controlled items to foreign destinations and/or to Foreign Persons (non US citizens or permanent residents) whether abroad or in the United States without first obtaining an export license from the Department of State or Department of Commerce.
