If I determine my commodity is not classified under an ECCN, such as an ECCN in a “xY0zz” ECCN that does not control “parts,” does that mean that all the “technology” related to my “part” is not controlled either?

In many cases the classification of a commodity’s “technology” will be related to the classification of the commodity, but there are several exceptions. For example, “technology” may be more highly controlled than the related commodity. But generally speaking if the “part” was not controlled under a specific ECCN then the related “technology” would not likely be controlled either. However, an important qualifier is that if the “technology” is related to other elements of that same commodity, then a separate “technology” analysis must be conducted with respect to the other “component,” “accessory,” or “attachment.”
