I am classifying a “component” and I know the “component” was originally “developed” for use in an item controlled for more than AT-reasons. Does that matter in applying the paragraph (b)(3) ‘release?’

No, the original “development” history is not relevant when applying the paragraph (b)(3) “production” ‘release.’ For paragraph (b)(3), once the “part,” “component,” “accessory,” “attachment,” or “software” meets the criteria of paragraph (b)(3)(i) and is used in or with an item that meets the criteria under (b)(3)(ii), it is no longer “specially designed,” regardless of the original design intent.

Previous I am a manufacturer of inertial navigation systems (INS) that are controlled for Missile Technology (MT) reasons. We often get calls from airlines for replacement of broken bench stock spares or INS units in permanent service. Are there any license exceptions that I can use?
Next I am not exporting the “600 series” item to a defense contractor, but rather exporting directly to the Country Group A:5 military. Do I need to obtain a prior consignee statement?
