License Exception TMP of the Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR 740.8) authorizes temporary (not more than one year) exports and reexports of some commodities and software in some situations in which a license otherwise would be required. Information not covered by any other approved collection is obtained from the public in two situations covered by this collection. The first situation is when the exporter or reexporter wishes to keep the commodities or software abroad for more than one year. In such instances, the exporter or reexporter must submit an application for an extension (up to six months) or to convert the transaction to a permanent export or reexport. The second situation occurs when members of the news media wish to use TMP as authorization to take items that otherwise would require a license to destinations in Country Groups D:1 or E:2 or Sudan (see 15 CFR part 740, Supp. No. 1 for the constituents of each country group). In this situation, the exporter or reexporter must submit a copy of the packing list or similar information to BIS before the export or reexport.
