Export Compliance

Many decommissioned assets are resold outside of their originating countries. There are rules and regulations which must be followed to ensure these exports are conducted legally. Violations of these regulations could result in fines or future export bans. Apto’s compliance program addresses these issues through our Know Your Customer procedures, including our internal customer record, which is required for each new customer we transact business with.

  • Properly classify your products with the correct Schedule B or Harmonized Tariff Codes as well as determine whether or not your product has an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN).
  • Screen your products against the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to determine if they require an export license.
  • Screen all the parties in your export transactions against the government’s numerous restricted Parties lists to make sure you're not shipping to an unlawful country.
