Aerospace Export Compliance Advisory Services and Licensing
We recently took on a consulting engagement with a U.S. aircraft parts exporter to classify against the Commerce Control List (CCL) an entire aircraft manufacturing program that included a 1970s era single engine aircraft inclusive of over 14,000 parts, components, blueprints, jigs and molds for sale to a commercial end user in Asia. In another case, we handled the EAR jurisdiction determination, classification and licensing of ground positioning equipment manufactured by a California company for export to the Royal Air Force (UK). In 2021, on behalf of a Florida based exporter we advised on, drafted, filed, and obtained a third party “bulk” BIS license for $6 million dollars of “series 600” C-130 parts to Latin America. And on an ongoing basis we have handled advising on and licensing for a Florida based aerospace parts exporter on C-130 parts exported to Argentina. We also guided the same Floirday based exporter on proper use of license exception Strategic Trade Authorization or “STA” [EAR Part 740.20] for their exports of ECCN 9A610 parts to Argentina. And we handled licensing for a California based distributor’s export of ECCN 9A610 military aircraft parts to the Malaysian and Indonesian Air Force. In 2020 we assisted a US manufacturer based in Connecticut to obtain an export license for original manufactured parts that were exported to Embraer (Brazil) for integration onto a military aircraft. And since 2019 we have served as the lead export compliance consultant on EAR and ITAR licensing to the senior management of a Texas based OEM that has designed and produced a unique first generation dual use (commercial/military) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) system that competes with systems developed by Boeing. We also assisted a US aircraft engineering company to determine licensing jurisdiction, classification and successfully guided them through the process to obtain a $22 million dollar ITAR license for the export of a small fleet of fixed wing and rotary wing Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft platforms. And we worked on behalf of a Connecticut based aerospace electronics manufacturer to successfully draft, file and obtain a commodity jurisdiction review from the Department of State for a dual use breathing device used for high altitude flight simulation. And that is just a very small sample of the projects TSI Global Consulting has taken on as an export compliance consultant to aerospace manufacturers and exporters.
