Re: Export Controls on Encryption Software

Based on consultation with the Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce, we believe that Stat-Ease software falls under the ECCN category of EAR99 — items not specified anywhere in the Commerce Control List (CCL). Generic software without encryption or telecommunications capabilities commonly is given this designation, appropriate for "uncontrolled" or "common use" items. Neither Design-Expert® nor Design-Ease® software packages perform encryption, nor do they perform telecommunications functions. They do only off-line statistical calculations to set up and analyze experiments.
