The U.S. and participating countries have agreed to establish Import Certificate (IC) and Delivery Verification (DV) requirements to help control the disposition of strategically important commodities. To comply with the commitment, BXA requires exporters to obtain IC documentation from foreign importers prior to submitting an export license application. BXA may also require a DV Certification which is a confirmation from the government to which the export has been made that the commodity is accounted for by the importer. This reporting requirement allows exporters to request an exception to the import certificate (or its equivalent) and requests for exceptions to the delivery verification procedures.
