This collection of information consolidates all BIS licensing exceptions and exclusions into one collection authority. License exceptions and exclusions allow exporters to exchange a requirement for an approved export license application before exporting, with immediate authority to export followed by a recordkeeping or periodic reporting requirement. Use of these exceptions and exclusions is voluntary and reduces licensing burden in OMB control number 0694-0088 Simple Network Application Process and Multipurpose Application Form.
