This collection is needed by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) to provide services to exporters who have either lost their original license and require a duplicate, or who wish to transfer their ownership of an approved license to another party.
Section 750.9 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) outlines the process for obtaining a duplicate license when a license is lost or destroyed. Section 750.10 of the EAR explains the procedure for transfer of ownership of validated export licenses. Both activities are services provided after the license approval process. Each action requires a letter to BIS which includes certain information or information and certification, as explained in the EAR.
