International Shipping. Added New ECCN/EAR99 Element to International Documents.
To align with US governmental guidelines, shipments destined to China, Russia or Venezuela now include an ECCN or EAR99 for each line item on the Commercial Invoice or a Shipper’s Letter of Instruction. Note that:

- EAR99: Indicates that a particular item is subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), but not listed with a specific ECCN on the Commercial Control List (CCL).
