CJs and CCATS: What You Need to Know
Item SKU: CJCD2011
One of the most complex and uncertain factors you face as an exporter is obtaining a Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ) ruling from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) or a Commodity Classification determination from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) through its Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System (CCATS). When to seek this advice, how to file your request, what information to provide, and how to avoid long delays and problems in the review of your request are key questions you must answer before you start the process. As the government has stepped up export enforcement, the number of CJs and CCATS being submitted has soared. In 2010, DDTC handled 989 CJ requests compared to 367 in 2006. BIS reviewed 7,360 CCATS requests. This timely audio-conference briefing will provide you will detailed information and insights into the CJ and CCATS process, what you must know before you file and how to assure the best outcome for your request.
