Semiconductors/Export Classification

In 2021 we advised a U.S. exporter of ECCN 5A002 semiconductor chips on the use of license exception ENC (EAR Part 740.17) for encryption products exported to a private sector end user in Israel. We also provided consulting to a Singaporean based re-seller of semiconductor tooling in determining the ECCN classification and licensing requirements under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) for semiconductor tooling warehoused in the United States and scheduled for export to South Korea and Singapore. In recent years we also advised on, drafted and filed a Commodity Jurisdiction Review with the U.S. Department of State for a California manufacturer of a wafer coating suface preparation tooling machine and for another California based semiconductor tooling manufacturer we advised on and filed for a Commerce Department classification for a Production Mask Aligner and Overlay Inspection tooling system.
