Licenses & Permit Acquisition

Streamline License Acquisition and Electronic Submissions

Export control compliance requires that companies determine the jurisdiction and classification of products. It also requires companies to apply for an export authorization from either the Department of State (DOS) or Department of Commerce (DOC).


OCR’s DOC and DOS Licensing modules are comprehensive solutions designed to address licensing requirements, provide a standardized workflow for application preparation and internal review, manage submission to the U.S. Government, as well as to track the progress of a submission until authorization is received. These solutions also provide a direct workflow for submitting Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ), advisory opinions, reporting, and other communications with the government. Increase your administrative efficiency by streamlining the application review process and improves the reporting and auditing functions with DOC/DOS LICENSING.
