Export Compliance

WatchGuard Export Compliance Guidelines

All WatchGuard products, including software, technology, and services, are subject to U.S. export control laws, including the following:

  • The Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) administered by the United States Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”), which govern exports from the United States, re-exports between other countries, and in-country transfers of products, as well as releases of technology or software source code to foreign nationals wherever located (“deemed exports”). The EAR also prohibits certain end uses of products.

  • Economic sanctions regulations administered by the United States Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), which prohibit or restrict trade and transactions directly or indirectly with certain embargoed countries, their governments, and certain designated parties.

The export, re-export, transfer, or use of WatchGuard products and/or third-party products provided by WatchGuard must comply with all applicable export control laws including the EAR and OFAC regulations. No person may directly or indirectly sell, export, re-export, transfer, divert, use, or dispose of any product except as permitted under U.S. laws. Note that, depending upon the location or intended destination of WatchGuard products, they may be subject to the export control laws of other countries.

Some of WatchGuard’s products are subject to U.S. export control laws because they include encryption functionality. WatchGuard provides a list of Export Control Classification Numbers (“ECCNs”) for its products below. Certain products qualify for License Exception ENC under the EAR (15 C.F.R. § 740.17), which may be used in accordance with the EAR and other applicable export control laws. WatchGuard products are currently prohibited for export or re-export directly or indirectly to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and the Crimea region of Ukraine without prior authorization under applicable law. WatchGuard products are also prohibited for export, re-export, or transfer to any person or entity on a U.S. government list of restricted persons, which includes the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons, Entity, and Unverified List; the U.S. Department of State's Debarred Persons or Nonproliferation List; or on the U.S. Department of Treasury's Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List, as revised from time to time.

Finally, all transactions involving WatchGuard products must comply with all U.S. and other applicable laws concerning restricted end uses. The EAR in particular prohibits or restricts the use of products for certain activities including nuclear, ballistic missile and unmanned aerial vehicles, chemical and biological weapons, and restricted military end uses.
