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.
- Print the Cisco Public Export Product Data (PEPD) page containing the ECCN & CCATS information for the Cisco product SKU in question.
- Highlight the Cisco product to be licensed on the page just printed.
- 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Further queries related to HK TID requests or HK TID encryption questionnaires regarding Cisco products should be sent to email@example.com.
