In the case of non-US items, it is important for the traders to determine whether the goods are subjected to the export administration regulations (EAR) or not. Traders who are based outside the US and want to re-export goods of US origin back into the country may need an additional license to do so. The EAR framework is applicable in case the goods have been produced in the US, or if it contains a specific percentage of US-origin content. The regulations are also applicable in case the item has been developed using US technology or if they were manufactured in a plant that is driven by a US-based technology.
