Export Compliance Just Got More Complicated (Here are Links to Make it Easier)

Normally, the consolidated screening list is found on export.gov; but now that entire website simply returns the message “Due to the lapse in government funding Trade.gov and Export.gov and all associated online activities will be unavailable until further notice.”  For exporters who rely on the consolidated screening list as a compliance tool, this is a significant problem.

Interestingly enough, export enforcement – the ongoing conduct of criminal investigations, and prosecutions, and coordination with other law enforcement and intelligence agencies – has been deemed to be an essential service for the Commerce Department so even though compliance resources are missing, export enforcement will still be available to punish anyone who makes a mistake because of the missing resources.

Some of these lists are still available for review.  Here are some that are particularly useful for civil aircraft parts transactions:
