Essential Skills / Qualifications:
The critical skill set needed is substantial experience classifying oil & gas materials for export. This means deeply understanding and being able to apply the Commerce Control List, Export Administration Regulations, International Traffic in Arms Regulations - and ideally similar regulatory requirements around the world (especially in the European Union). Should be very familiar with and be able to determine the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) for the types of materials used in the oil & gas industry.

Note 1: This is NOT the same as knowing Harmonized Tariff Schedule numbers/codes. These codes are used for import - not export. This is a valuable additional skill set - but not a substitute for export classification experience.
Note 2: Experience applying for and managing export licenses is also a valuable additional skill set - but not a substitute for export classification experience.
Note 3: Extensive logistics and procurement experience is also valuable - but not
