SSI has an obligation to monitor shipments for both direct and indirect exports. A direct export is an order that is placed by an individual outside of the United States and then ships out of the US when all the required licenses and investigations have been successfully completed for that order. An indirect export is where an order is placed by a customer outside of the US and then is shipped to another location within the United States. Both of these types of orders could need an export license to take place. There are a number of things which need to be checked and verified for an export order and SSI is dedicated to conduct the required procedures as specified by the law. SSI will report any violations to the appropriate governing authorities of any potential orders placed which seeks to break those laws.

Customers will be required to provide an import permit or certificate from your government for us to include along with the export application for you order. You will also have to provide SSI with a written order for the items you wish to order. This can be an official purchase order or a written order on your company’s letterhead stationery, paragraphing in letter from the items you wish to order. Your signature is required on these items as well.
