Argent’s Export Control Classification Number

Forty countries apply controls to exports of products, technology, and software.

The purpose is to improve security and to combat terrorism, using the Wassenaar Arrangement – surprisingly, this is not the name of a spy novel.

The full name is: “The Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies”), which is a multilateral export control regime (MECR) with 40 participating countries.

See for more details.

The exporting party must provide an ECCN for the product, technology, and software to be exported.

Encryption software and devices, along with transfers by high-risk entities, are subject to the greatest export restrictions.

Argent Software products are classified as ECCN EAR99.
