  • Shipment of merchandise under the same Schedule B commodity number is valued at more than US$2,500 and is sent from the same exporter to the same recipient on the same day. (Note: Shipments to Canada from the U.S. are exempt from this requirement.)


  • The shipment contains merchandise, regardless of value, that requires an export license or permit.


  • The merchandise is subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), regardless of value.


  • The shipment, regardless of value, is being sent to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria.
