IMPORT / EXPORT RESTRICTIONS

1) Restrictions on items of USA origin:

All products originating from the USA are subject to US regulations called EAR (Export Administration Regulation) or ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and infringement of these regulations may incur significant fines and penalties.
Most products of USA origin supplied by Connector-Tech ALS (including most of our USA Military connectors) come under the most lenient EAR99 classification and are not subject to ITAR regulations and do not require a USA export licence.

For more information on EAR controlled items please see the website of the USA Bureau of Industry and Security (U.S. Department of Commerce). Those items subject to the EAR but not specified on the Commerce Control List (CCL) are identified by the designator “EAR99” and no export licence is required.

A few countries embargoed by the USA must not be shipped any goods of USA origin (not even EAR99 items). For the current list please see the United States Department of Commerce website.

ITAR regulations are significant and far reaching. Apart from physical goods, ITAR regulations restrict data and information exchange and also restrict persons of certain nationalities being able to access ITAR controlled goods and information. The restrictions covers goods, personnel and information from the design stage onwards, and includes the entire supply chain from manufacturer to end user. So if you are considering purchasing an ITAR controlled item you need to research the USA Government restrictions on these items and become aware of the significant penalties for infringement of these regulations.

For more information on ITAR regulations please see the U.S. Department of State website.

Connector-Tech ALS will endeavour to advise you if any items you are wishing to purchase are subject to ITAR regulations.

The following is a list of the main USA manufacturers of products that we supply: ADI, Aero Electric, Ametek SCP, AMP, Anderson Airmotive, Anderson Power Products, Conesys, Conxall, Corsair, Cooper Interconnect, Daniels (DMC), Deutsch, Glasseal Products, Glenair, HellermannTyton, Hermetic Seal Corp, ITT Cannon, ITT Veam, J-Tech, Molex, Raychem, SMH, Spacecraft Components, Sureseal, Sealtron, Sunbank, TE Connectivity.

The following is a list of the main non-USA manufacturers of products that we supply: Aircraftplugs, Allied, Amphetronics, Hirose, Hualun Connector, ILME, LTW, Marechal, Mennekes, Merlin, Phase 3, Semikron, Sung Jin, Tajimi, Yeonhab.


2) Restrictions on exports by the Australian Government:

Some Defence related items are subject to export restrictions by the Australian government however very few of our products come under this category so the majority do not require an Australian Government export licence.

For the full list of restricted items please see the Australian Government's Defence Export Control Office (DECO) website.

Also the Australian Government lists a small number of embargoed countries on the Australian Customs website.

If you are considering purchasing an Australian Government export controlled item you need to research the Australian Government restrictions on these items and become aware of the significant penalties for infringement of these regulations.
