Import and Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) Categories

To determine whether you need an export license, you must also know if the item you want to export has a specific Import and Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) in the import export industry. The ECCN is an alpha-numeric code, e.g., 3A001, that describes the item and indicates licensing requirements. All ECCNs are listed in the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the EAR) which is available on the Government Printing Office website. The CCL is divided into ten broad categories, and each category is further subdivided into five product groups.
