Records and Liability

Export authorizations and export documents must be kept for five years from their date of expiration and, in the case of a license exemption, for five years after the work or travel is completed. This includes all export and shipping records regardless of the party who completes the forms on your behalf (carrier, customs broker, or freight forwarder).

Please be aware that if a forwarder is acting as your agent on your behalf, you will still be responsible for any violation that the forwarder commits.
