Neeco Industries, Inc. (Neeco) is a U.S. company with operations and customers throughout the world. Neeco follows the trade laws and regulations in each country where we do business, as well as applicable trade restrictions imposed by the U.S. government. Export control laws in the United States are strict, and do not permit export sales to certain individuals, companies, and countries. These export prohibitions apply to all Neeco divisions and affiliates, as well as our distributors. An “export” includes the products and equipment we manufacture, as well as our technology, and information.
Neeco also adheres to U.S. anti-boycott laws that prohibit us from participating in restrictive trade practices or unsanctioned boycotts. We must report any requests to participate in an unsanctioned boycott to the U.S. government. For more information on anti-boycott laws, Click Here.
Neeco has an integrated and centralized Export Compliance Management Program (ECMP) which serves as the corporate resource for both US and/or local export regulatory requirements and, through its export compliance team (ECT), develops and implements policies and procedures to ensure compliance with US and/or local export laws and regulations. Within the ECT, each Neeco facility has an Export Compliance Officer (ECO) trained on export compliance matters. For assistance regarding the export of Neeco products, please direct inquiries to the ECO at your local sales office.
Each division maintains a “product matrix” that identifies nuclear, military and “dual use” products that require export and/or re-export licenses for international shipments. To obtain the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) relevant to a particular product, please contact the ECO at your local sales office.
Neeco’s standard commercial products and pressure/flow control solutions are within the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security. These products are classified under certain ECCN’s, or EAR99, under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and may require a license depending on the country of destination and value of the order (excluding embargoed items for the Russian energy sector issued in 2014).
Incorporated into Neeco’s Quality Assurance System, we have implemented companywide training and maintain controlled documents covering all the critical aspects of EAR/ITAR and OFAC compliance, including:
As an added level of assurance, Neeco can protect any controlled technical data transferred to us during the development of specially designed items. Furthermore, should a customer request a specially designed valve that meets the criteria of a controlled item on the U.S. Munitions List (USML), Neeco is properly registered to produce the controlled item and is able to seek an export license or other approval, if required.
We have successfully demonstrated our ability to keep our customers’ transferred technology, sensitive product documents, and order details secure from unauthorized individuals. A formal Technology Control Plan (TCP) is in place to ensure the secure transmittal and storage of digital and hard copies of drawings, correspondence, etc., and our employees have been trained to prevent unauthorized exportation.
In accordance with the U.S. Department of Commerce Export Administration Regulations (EAR), a TCP is required to prevent unauthorized exportation of protected items or products, information, or technology deemed to be sensitive to national security or economic interests. A copy of our Technology Control Plan, which outlines the procedures to be taken to handle and safeguard any export-controlled Information, is available upon request from our Sales Department.
