Keep track of your trade policies with advanced export control


Supply Chain Management lets you manage, track, and verify compliance with export control restrictions prior to confirming, picking, packing, shipping, and invoicing sales orders. The new advanced export control functionality allows you to manage your export control policies using a native Microsoft Dataverse solution that interfaces directly with your Supply Chain Management instance. Supply Chain Management then enforces compliance with international trade regulations by consulting your export-control policies in real time.

The export control dataverse solution allows you to keep track of the many different rules and policies, expressing these rules, including complex ones, using formulas similar to those in Microsoft excel. The fact that it is a dataverse-based solution also allows your other systems to access your export control rules thanks to the hundreds of connectors available for Dataverse.

The solution implements five primary concepts:

A jurisdiction is a set of codes, categories, restrictions, exceptions and licenses. It represents a set of configurations that apply to incoming requests. Like the US International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), US Export Administration Regulations (EAR) or EU Dual Use.

You can create as well your own jurisdiction for your companies internal policies.

Codes and categories

The codes that make up a jurisdiction are often referred to as Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs).

An example of an export control classification number is 7A994, which is defined by the United States Export Administration Regulations (US EAR) export control jurisdiction. This classification number applied to “Other navigation direction finding equipment, airborne communication equipment, all aircraft inertial navigation systems not controlled under 7A003 or 7A103, and other avionic equipment, including parts and components.” According to the US EAR, ECCN 7A994 is a part of the *Anti Terrorism (AT)* control category.

Each export control jurisdiction defined a set of restrictions under which export control actions should be disallowed unless an exception exists.


Exceptions allow an action even though a restriction would otherwise block it. Common types of exceptions include licenses, blanket exemptions, and corporate policies.

Exceptions are defined the same way as restrictions, but also provide extra requirements that apply when the exception is used, such as the need to display a message to the user o to print text and licenses on documents.


Licenses are the specific permissions to be able to trade an item or set of items in a given context. It is common that the authorities are the ones providing the licenses.
