D3 | Critical product requirements

Is export just a matter of shipping goods to a foreign country in exchange for money? If things were that easy, everyone would do it.

First, you must fully understand the legal requirements that apply to your product(s).

There are some basic steps you will want to take once you make the commitment to sell your product internationally. License requirements are dependent upon four criteria:
an item’s technical characteristics, the destination, end use and end user.

Therefore, you have to investigate if any export compliance regulations apply for your product. Mind that even the smallest businesses that send their products to customers outside the country are subject to a variety of export regulations and could face substantial penalties for those violating these rules.
