RSA Product/Service Type:  Hardware Authenticators
RSA Version/Condition:  SID800 Authenticator (USB token), SID800 Hardware Authenticators, SID700
IssueThis article discusses the following issues:
  • To what countries can we export RSA hardware authenticators?
  • Where can I find a list of countries that RSA SecurID hardware tokens cannot be shipped?
  • We have a requirement to use two-factor authentication and many of our customers are outside the United States.
  • We do not want to ship tokens to people in countries on the "Do Not Export" list.
ResolutionRSA certifies that the RSA SecurID product is classified under Export Commodity Classification Number (ECCN) 5D992 "Authentication Software/Hardware" per CCATS G009989 for SD200, SD520, SD600, SID700, and SID900 and CCATS G038836 for the SID800. The HTS code is 8543 70 9009.
The exportation of items classified by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) as 5D992 to foreign subsidiaries of US companies is permitted under license exception NLR, (No License Required). This license exception does not apply to the nations under US embargo: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
There may be import licensing requirements in various countries such as China, but customers will have to consult with their local brokerage representatives to better understand the requirements as these may change over time.
There are also import licensing exceptions if the server is maintained outside of the country as opposed to within the country of import.
