If an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) does not use the term “parts,” does that mean no “parts” are controlled under that ECCN?

If the term “parts” is not used in the control parameters of a particular ECCN that means that “parts” generically are not controlled under that ECCN. However, be advised that certain ECCNs may enumerate or otherwise describe a commodity that would also meet the “parts” definition, such as ECCN 1A005. ECCN 1A005 does not include a generic control on “parts,” but 1A005.b does control hard body armor plates that provide ballistic protection less than NIJ level III (NIJ 0101.06, July 2008) or national equivalents. Such a plate would, in most cases, also meet the EAR definition of “part.” In this case the parts are controlled under that ECCN.
