Definitive interpretation of “Routed Transactions” to be established

Because of the undefined terminology of “routed transactions,” the BIS has proposed a ruling to clarify the issue. This stems from the potential of miscommunication between the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) and the FTR (Foreign Trade Regulations) who currently both posses differing definitions as to what constitutes “routed transactions.” The proposed solution is to change “routed export transactions” to the defined “Foreign Principal Part Controlled Export Transactions.”


The BIS is accepting comments on the matter until April 7th, 2014.
