< Back

A commodity jurisdiction (CJ) determination is made by the Department of State, in consultation with other government agencies, when doubt exists as to whether a commodity (i.e., articles, technical information, and services) is covered by the United States Munitions List (USML). Determinations typically distinguish whether a commodity is on the USML and controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) or on the Commerce Control List and controlled by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Please reference ITAR 120.4.
