Export Compliance

An Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is a specific alpha-numeric code used in the U.S. that identifies the level of export control for articles, technology and softsre exported from the participating states of the Wassenaar Arrangement, established in 1996.

Each participating state has its own classification procedure, but the system used in the U.S. is the most renowned and frequently used within the business sphere.

To find out which ECCN is assigned to a Kaspersky Lab product, please refer to the table below.

The word “SELF” in the CCATS column is used to identify those products that are self-classified under either Part 740.17.b.1 or Part 742.15.b.1 of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR).



Export Control Classification Numbers are assigned by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) in the Commerce Control List (CCL). This is the fundamental designation indicating the controls applied to an item. Kaspersky Lab products typically fall under one of two ECCNs:

1.      EAR99 - A category encompassing U.S.-origin items not elsewhere specified on the Commerce Control List (possibly including software without any encryption).

2.      5D992.c  - A category encompassing certain enumerated, high-functioning encryption products and software that can be shipped without delay anywhere in the world (except for Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) as No License Required ("NLR"). 5D002 products may generally also be shipped around the world under license exception ENC provided certain restrictions are met (including, for example, restrictions on certain high-end products and end-users in certain restricted countries).


Given the appropriate ECCN, you should consult the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) or legal counsel to determine the appropriate license type and eligible countries for export purposes[1]. The license types for Kaspersky Lab products are typically:

1.      NLR - No License Required (To Most Countries)

Mass Market

U.S. government regulations allow mass market encryption products containing strong encryption to be exported under 5D992, NLR (see above) after a 30-day review. A "Mass Market" in this column indicates that the software has been reviewed by the U.S. Government and has been approved as mass market software.


Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System. This is the code number assigned by BIS to products that have been classified using the Commerce Control List (CCL). Kaspersky Lab provides the CCATS number when applicable. We provide the CCATS because some encryption exports require post-shipment reporting to BIS and the CCATS information will assist with the reporting requirements, if required.

[1] A license is still required for exports and re-exports from the U.S. to countries controlled for anti-terrorism (AT) reasons (currently, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria). A license is also still required for exports to end-users of concern, or in support of a prohibited end-user.
