Important Notice & Disclaimer

Exports and re-exports of McAfee products are subject to U.S. export controls and sanctions administered by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

This page provides export control information on McAfee software and hardware products. McAfee products provide encryption features that are subject to the EAR and other U.S. laws. These features have been approved for export from the United States, subject to certain requirements and limitations. You may find the information on this page useful for determining exportability to particular countries or parties, and for completing export or shipping documentation, recordkeeping, or post-shipment reporting.

Although we provide the information on this page, you remain responsible for exporting or re-exporting McAfee software in accordance with U.S. law. We encourage you to seek appropriate legal advice and/or consult the EAR and the BIS Information Technology Controls Division before exporting, re-exporting, or distributing McAfee software and hardware. The information provided here is subject to change without notice.

Re-export of McAfee items
Non-U.S. and U.S. companies re-exporting McAfee products or technology must comply with both their local export rules and with U.S. re-export regulations. Guidance regarding re-exports and other offshore transactions involving items of U.S. origin can be found at http://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/licensing/reexports-and-offshore-transactions.

Embargoed Destinations

McAfee products may not be exported or re-exported, either directly or indirectly, to any country embargoed by the United States, or to any country considered by the United States as a supporter of international terrorism, without proper authorization from the U.S. government. Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria are embargoed destinations.

U.S. Prohibited and/or Restricted Lists

McAfee products may not be sold, exported, or re-exported to any person or entity designated as prohibited or restricted by an agency of the U.S. government. Exports to companies, organizations, or persons listed on the Specially Designated Nationals List, the Debarred List, the Entity List, and other governmental lists are prohibited. Please review the prohibited U.S. government lists.

Enhanced Proliferation Control Initiative

McAfee products may not be used directly or indirectly in the design, development, fabrication, or use of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons or missile technology without U.S. government authorization.

Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System (CCATS)

The BIS uses the Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System (CCATS) to assign code numbers to products it has classified against the Commerce Control List (CCL). The CCL contains items subject to BIS export license requirements. McAfee lists CCATS numbers on our product matrix.

Deemed Export

A deemed export is any release of technology or source code, subject to the EAR, to a foreign national within the United States. Such a release is deemed to be an export to the home country or countries of the foreign national. This deemed export rule does not apply to persons lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States or to persons who are protected individuals under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(3). Additional information on deemed exports can be found on the BIS website.

Technology or software is released for export through:

  • Visual inspection by foreign nationals of U.S.-origin equipment and facilities
  • Oral exchanges of information in the United States or abroad
  • The application to situations abroad of personal knowledge or technical experience acquired in the United States

Delivery of McAfee cryptographic products does not imply third-party authority to import, distribute, or use restricted and non-restricted encryption.

Importers, distributors, customers, and users are responsible for compliance with U.S. and local country export laws and regulations. McAfee strongly recommends that importers, distributors, and users investigate such regulations before deploying encryption products. McAfee encourages customers to contact their local freight forwarder, consultant, or attorney with knowledge of international export requirements.

Export Control Classification Number (ECCN)

An Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is assigned to a product by the BIS. An ECCN is an alphanumeric classification used in the EAR under the Commerce Control List (CCL) to identify items for export control purposes.

ENC/Restricted (Civilian/Commercial End Users)

ENC/Restricted products may be exported or re-exported to most civilian and commercial end users located in all territories, except embargoed destinations and countries designated as supporting terrorist activities. Countries listed in Part 746 of the EAR as embargoed destinations requiring a license are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.

ENC/Restricted (Government End Users)

Government entities not located in the following countries require a U.S. export license in order to obtain restricted non-retail strong encryption items: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States.

ENC/Unrestricted

ENC/Unrestricted products are eligible for export to any end user, including government, in all countries except the following embargoed countries: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.

Foreign Nationals

Any person born outside the jurisdiction of the United States, subject to a foreign government, and not naturalized under U.S. law is considered a foreign national. This includes foreign national contractors and vendors. For the purposes of the EAR, a foreign national subject to the U.S. deemed export rule is not a citizen of the United States and not a legal permanent resident (i.e., not a permanent resident alien or green card holder).

A U.S. export license may be needed before disclosing certain kinds of software or technology to a foreign national if:

  • The software or technology is export-controlled
  • The individual is a citizen of one or more of the following countries: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria

Government End User

Foreign central, regional, or local government department, agency, or other entity performing governmental functions.

License Exception

An authorization described in part 740 of the EAR that allows the export or re-export, under stated conditions, of products subject to the EAR that otherwise would require a license. Unless otherwise indicated, these License Exceptions are not applicable to exports under the licensing jurisdiction of agencies other than the Commerce Department.

Mass Market/NLR

Mass Market products are eligible for export with No License Required (NLR) to any end user (including government) in all countries except embargoed countries and those that are designated by the United States as supporters of international terrorism: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Mass Market products are eligible for de minimus treatment.
