Determination of Coverage

When exporting products or providing technology subject to export controls, exporters need to obtain an Export license from the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry in advance in accordance with the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act. Furthermore, even if an item is not subject to controls, it may be necessary to provide a certificate of non-applicability from customs when being cleared. If we receive a request from a customer, we perform a determination of non-applicability to determine whether or not an Export license needs to be acquired for the product or technology, and submit a document certifying the results of the decision. (Please ask sales personnel regarding requests for certificates of non-applicability)

  • * Some time may be required to determine the details depending on the Company's product or technology.
  • * The Company's products and technology fall under row 16 of Appended Table 1 of the Export Trade Control Order, and are covered by catch-all controls. Customers should make their own determination concerning this Section.
