July 17, 2024

Dear Business Partner:

Qualcomm Incorporated, together with its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, "Qualcomm") develops and offers hardware, software, source code and technology (collectively, “Products”) that are governed by the export laws of the United States and other countries where we do business.  Products obtained from Qualcomm are subject to the US government export control and economic sanctions regulations, including without limitation the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) and the Office of Foreign Assets Control Regulations.

These laws prohibit the export, reexport, and transfer of Qualcomm Products to certain countries, certain parties or for certain end uses.
The attached Export Control Assurance (“ECA”) (1) collects end use information on Qualcomm's Products, (2) serves as a notification
to you of applicable US and international laws and regulations, and (3) obtains an assurance that your company and
affiliates will comply with applicable requirements. This ECA will remain in effect for one (1) year from the date it was executed.

This Export Control Assurance must be executed by a Corporate Officer with the authority to bind the Company to the compliance obligations herein.  If you have any questions on the form, you may email Qualcomm Export and Sanctions Compliance ec.ops@qualcomm.com.

The ECA is a required document. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in accurately completing and returning the ECA.

IV. Prohibited Destinations
The undersigned company agrees that it will not export, reexport, transfer (in-country), or release (collectively, “Export”) any Qualcomm Products, or any direct products thereof, to any country or territory, its government, any entity organized under the laws of such country or territory, or any individual resident in such country or territory, if at the time of export, reexport or transfer the country or territory is subject to a US government embargo or comprehensive sanctions. The US government currently maintains comprehensive embargoes and sanctions against Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and the Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, but any amendments to these controls shall apply.  The US government also has imposed extensive export control and sanctions restrictions on Russia and Belarus.

The undersigned company further agrees to comply with all destination restrictions under the EAR when Exporting any Qualcomm Products, based on the reasons for control imposed by the Product’s export controls classification on the EAR’s Commerce Control List and the destination controls identified on the Commerce Country Chart available here:  https://www.ecfr.gov/current/title-15/subtitle-B/chapter-VII/subchapter-C/part-738/appendix-Supplement%20No.%201%20to%20Part%20738.



V. Military End-user/End-use Licensing Requirement for Belarus, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, the People's Republic of China, Nicaragua, the Russian Federation, or Venezuela Customers
It is prohibited to export, reexport, or transfer certain Qualcomm Products to any entity in Belarus, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, the People's Republic of China, Nicaragua, the Russian Federation, or Venezuela with knowledge that the entity is a "military end-user" or that the Qualcomm Products will be used in any "military end-use", as those terms are defined below.   There also are additional restrictions on certain exports, reexports, or transfers of microprocessors and associated software and technology for military end uses or military end users in the EAR’s Country Group D:1.  We request that you complete this questionnaire to assist Qualcomm in determining if and when such US export licenses may be required for the sale and supply of Qualcomm Products to your company.

A “military end user” is:
  1. the national armed service (army, navy, marine, air force, coast guard, national guard, or national police); 
  2. a government intelligence or reconnaissance organization; or 
  3. any person or entity whose actions or functions are intended to support “military end uses” as defined in this document.
A “military end use” means:
  1. incorporation [of a Qualcomm Product] into a military item described on the US Munitions List (“USML”) (22 CFR Part 121) of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 C.F.R. Parts 120-130) or the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List (as set out on the Wassenaar Arrangement website at https://www.wassenaar.org/); 
  2. incorporation [of a Qualcomm Product] into items classified under Export Control Classification Numbers (“ECCNs) ending in “A018” or under “600 series” ECCNs.
  3. or any item that supports or contributes to the design, use, operation, deployment, installation (including on-site installation), maintenance (checking), repair, overhaul, refurbishing, development, or production, of military items described on the USML, the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List, or items classified under ECCNs ending in “A018” or under “600 series” ECCNs. 
For the avoidance of doubt, the phrase “any item that supports or contributes to” goes beyond incorporation into a military item to mean direct facilitation, such as installation, inspection, or test equipment and related software and technology, of the design, use, operation, deployment installation (including on-site installation), maintenance (checking), repair, overhaul, refurbishing, development, or production of military items described on the USML, the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List, or classified in an ECCN ending in “A018” or under “600 series” ECCNs.

#1:  Is your Company a national armed service (e.g., army, navy, marine, air force, coast guard,
national guard, or national police), a government intelligence or reconnaissance organization, or an entity whose actions or functions are intended to support “military end uses” as defined in this document?
  Please Answer this question.


#2:  Is your Company owned, in whole or in part, by a “military end user” as defined above?
  Please Answer this question.


#3:  Does the Company otherwise have any dealings with a national armed service (e.g., army,
navy, marine, air force, coast guard, national guard, or national police), a government intelligence or reconnaissance organization, or entity whose actions or functions are intended to support “military end uses,” as defined in this document, of Belarus, Myanmar (Burma), China (including Hong Kong), Cambodia, Russia, or Venezuela? 
Examples include sales, servicing, research, sourcing, collaboration, or any other activities.
  Please Answer this question.


#4:  Will your Company use the Qualcomm Products for a “military end use,” as defined above?
  Please Answer this question.


#5:  Will the Company resell or transfer the Qualcomm Products to a third party for a “military end use,” as defined above?
  Please Answer this question.


#6:  Will the Company provide the Qualcomm Products to a “military end user”, as defined above, for a civil application?
  Please Answer this question.
