Your export (or deemed export)/reexport (or deemed reexport)/transfer transactions and other services may be subject to the EAR. Some transactions and activities specific to the E-Commerce environment where you should determine if you are subject to the EAR include:

  • Orders processed using the internet with tangible delivery of goods;

FAQs:

Am I required under the EAR to actively screen for terrorist-supporting destinations?

In your business practice, it is prudent to use a standard of care to ensure that you will not violate any of the prohibition identified in the EAR. The EAR does not require a person posting software on the Internet to implement screening procedures for the terrorist countries. The "Know Your Customer" guidance in Supplement No. 3 to Part 732 provides companies with guidelines on how to comply with their responsibilities under the EAR.
