Export Licenses: General Regulatory/Licensing FAQs

Destination Control Statement
Destination Control Statement (DCS) is required for exports from United States for items on the Commerce Control List that are outside of EAR99 (products for which no license is required). A DCS appears on the commercial invoice, ocean bill of lading or Airway bill to notify the carrier and all foreign parties that the item can be exported only to certain destinations.
