The US export control law also applies to US goods, technology, and software components in other products later exported as finished goods.

This applies regardless of the finished product's country of origin and the company's location. These controls are especially essential if you supply to the so-called "critical countries".

Companies that fail to comply with US export regulations face heavy penalties and potentially an entry on the US government's blocked list. Therefore, in the worst case, a violation can lead to the exclusion of trade in American products.
