Commerce Control List (CCL)

In the context of US export controls, CCL is the abbreviation for the Commerce Control List. The CCL is maintained by the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). The Commerce Control List is contained in Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the US Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

The Commerce Control List includes items (commodities, software, and technologies) that are subject to the EAR.

Items that are listed on the CCL are organized according to alpha-numeric designations called Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs). Items subject to the EAR that are not listed on the CCL are designated as EAR99. 

“Subject to the EAR” is a technical term that is defined in §734.2 of the EAR. It describes those items and activities over which BIS exercises regulatory jurisdiction under the EAR.
