Jurisdiction refers to the set of regulations to which an item is subject (e.g., ITAR vs EAR), whereas classification refers to the specific control within the respective control list for that set of regulations (e.g., United States Munitions List (USML) Category VIII(a)(2), or Commerce Control List (CCL) Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 9A610.a).
