(PRWEB) April 20, 2004 -- Based on Klatuís stringent product classification, an e-store customer can now add optional integrated export compliance functionality, thereby enabling the required exporting checks, export licensing controls and export documentation needed to export products from any major trading country in the world.

Export licensing
Export licensing functionality informs the Exporter if a license is required to ship their specific product from the country of export to the destination. If a license or license exception is required or embargo restrictions are in effect, the result is displayed to the user. The determination of export license requirements or license exceptions is based on its applicable Export Commodity Control Number (ECCN) or other classification number(s).

The Department of Commerce licenses "dual- use" exports, which include technology products, such as computers, certain software and encryption devices and technology. Many products do not require an export license, however a failure to obtain a required license would have severe consequences.

Export Documentation
Documentation support identifies which documents are required for shipment between countries, including both export and import documents.
