What is an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN)?


An Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is an alpha-numeric, five character classification number used to identify items for United States export control purposes. An ECCN is different from a Schedule B number, which is used by the Bureau of Census to collect trade statistics. It is also different from the Harmonized Tariff System nomenclature, which is used to determine import duties.
