The Department of Commerce governs both ECCN and Schedule B. The significant differences between ECCN and Schedule B are:
• The Bureau of Industry & Security manages the ECCN, while the Census Bureau manages Schedule B.
• Compared to the five-character alphanumeric code of ECCN, Schedule B is a 10-digit code under HTS.
• The ECCN code is produced to track the export of CCL products, while Schedule B numbers are codes produced to track trade statistics
• ECCN has no direct relation with HTS codes or Harmonized System of Nomenclature (HSN) codes
, while Schedule B has a direct connection with them.
• The ECCN code is not required to be submitted to the Automated Export System (AES). However, Schedule B codes are part of the Electronic Export Information (EEI), which exporters need to submit to the AES directly.
