Advanced Clustering Technologies welcomes international customers. We are able to conduct business internationally following rules set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, which requires that we ask for details about all international orders. Those details include:
Who are you?
Certain organizations and individuals are subject to trade sanctions, embargoes, and other restrictions under U.S. law. We’re required to ask for some basic information regarding any international order. Who are you? What will the product(s) you’re planning to buy be used for? Will your order be re-exported?
Who are the End Users?
We are required to ask about the end users for the products included in your order. End users who will have remote access with full computational access will be scrutinized more strictly. Submitting complete information on the end user and end use will avoid delays in processing these types of orders. Who are the end users? Where is each end user located? At the present time, we are unable to do business with companies located in, or that re-export to, the following countries: China, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan or Syria.
