The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has announced an updated guidance to help define responsibilities for freight forwarders and exporters when working together to ensure compliance with US export controls and regulations.

The guidance focuses on:

  • Expectations of the exporter or USPPI
  • Best practices when selecting a Freight Forwarder
  • Responsibilities for routed and non-routed exports
  • Antiboycott guidance
  • Red flags for exporters

The guidance is not just for freight forwarders, but also explains what an exporter or US principal party of interest (USPPI) must do to remain compliant and avoid potential penalties.
