Import Export Licensing

Federal and international standards for import and export vary depending on the product, the country of origin, and the destination. Individuals who are considering importing and exporting goods can benefit from information about what it takes to import and/or export agricultural products, automobiles, chemicals, defense products, food and beverage products, industrial products, and pharmaceuticals.

An import-export license is mandated by various federal agencies, and it identifies what products are shipped or delivered between international locations. A license may or may not be required for importers or exporters, depending on the product.
