Export Compliance Policy

It is the policy of Synaptics, Inc. to comply with all U.S. export control laws and regulations regarding the export/reexport of its products, services, software, and technology. Synaptics is also committed to compliance with similar laws in other countries where Synaptics operates its business. Under no circumstances will exports be made contrary to U.S. or other applicable export regulations by any individual operating on behalf of the company. Synaptics partners with suppliers and contract manufacturers who are committed to the same export control policy.

Export Classifications

The Synaptics products listed below are non-U.S.-made items and not subject to control under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR Part 730-774), administered by the Department of Commerce within the Bureau of Industry & Security. Nor does Synaptics have any products, software, or technology controlled under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), administered by the U.S. Department of State.

However, because foreign-made items can become subject to the EAR (e.g.  by virtue of being inside the US) and because it may be helpful information for our customers, Synaptics has provided the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) and Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) for each product on the chart below. This product classification chart is for reference only and does not take into consideration the specifics of any given transaction, where factors such as country of destination, end-user, and end-use may impact license determination (e.g. whether the end-user is on a restricted parties list or whether the end-use is prohibited).

If you require additional assistance, or have questions about your compliance obligations, we recommend you visit the Bureau of Industry & Security website for U.S. or Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) for Japan.
