If it is determined that a license will be required, substantial time should be built into the project plan to accommodate the license application process. This process can take several weeks, even months, depending upon the agency and the nature of the export. If a license is granted, the conditions of the license for the export activity must be carefully observed. If a license application is denied, that activity, export or deemed export, is prohibited.

Penalties for Noncompliance:
