A:  For exports from the U.S., the following guidance applies:

Cisco does not provide copies of CCATS, other than to government agencies as needed for export/import approvals.

The Hong Kong Trade and Industry Department (HK TID) Cryptography Questionnaire form is generally required by HK TID to precisely determine the export classification of a product referenced in a HK TID license application.

Cisco proactively removes the requirement on the HK TID Cryptography Questionnaire for U.S. exports by supplying a U.S. Department of Commerce formal export classification directly to HK TID.
Said another way, once Cisco supplies the formal export classification (CCATS) for a particular Cisco product to HK TID, HK TID no longer has any need to obtain the completed Cryptography Questionnaire form for that particular Cisco product from ANY Cisco customer.

IMPORTANT: The following process pertains to the HK TID licensing process only.
The following process should not be used for the HK TID pre-classification process. Further, as the export classifications of Cisco products are available from the PEPD website (described below), following the guidance of HK TID, a pre-classification is not required for Cisco products.

HK TID Licensing Process for Cisco Products

The party submitting the license application to HK TID should include a snapshot from the Cisco Public Export Product Data site for ECCN & CCATS (http://tools.cisco.com/legal/export/pepd/Search.do).

For Cisco products, forms are not required as Cisco product export classification information is posted on the URL referenced above.

  1. Print the Cisco Public Export Product Data (PEPD) page containing the ECCN & CCATS information for the Cisco product SKU in question.

  2. Highlight the Cisco product to be licensed on the page just printed.

  3. Submit the highlighted page just printed along with the HK TID license application.


If HK TID needs additional information regarding a Cisco product, HK TID will contact Cisco directly.

HK TID may be contacted at the following e-mail address: stc_classification@tid.gov.hk

Further queries related to HK TID requests or HK TID encryption questionnaires regarding Cisco products should be sent to exportclass@cisco.com.
