Key benefits for your organization

Fully searchable

The USML Classification solution by Visual Compliance makes the USML fully searchable. You can use keywords to take you directly to sections that apply to your products and services, or you can easily drill down to sections of the list that you already use.

Easy to Understand

Searches provide you with only the information you need, with relevant search terms highlighted for easy visibility. Get clarification on each relevant section of the USML quickly, and compare them to easily determine which is most applicable to your items.

Cross-search Commerce Control List

With the ability to cross-search with the Commerce Control List (CCL), you can be sure your dual-use items are not classified as military use. There's no need to switch back and forth between different solutions, windows and documents.

Embargo Compliance

Visual Compliance helps you easily reference embargoes impacting destination countries. Visual Compliance–USML Classification includes a sortable chart of all U.S. Arms embargoes with links to the Federal Registry and other relevant documentation.

Solution Highlights


Included in Visual Compliance–USML Classification is easy access to the published editions of International Trade in Arms Regulations (ITAR), including the consolidated ITAR and amendments. Also available is the full text of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).


With Visual Compliance's classification solutions, you can be more confident that you've made the right decision when classifying your imports and exports. Not only can you thoroughly search the Commerce Control List (CCL), United States Munitions List (USML), and a wide range of tariff schedules, our solutions also include the ability to search a wide range of international export regulations, as well as previous government rulings. Take advantage of the time others have spent getting the right classification.


Visual Compliance–USML Classification provides you with access to a comprehensive list of U.S. Arms Embargoes, along with the dates they became effective and sections of the Federal Registry that explain them in detail.
