BIS Launches Online Export Tracking System

On January 11, 2010, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) launched an online version of its System for Tracking Export License Applications (STELA). STELA allows users to check the status of their export and re-export license applications, classification requests and agricultural license exception (AGR) notifications. To access export data, STELA users must input their application control number (ACN) assigned by BIS. 

With the launch of an online system, BIS plans to eventually phase out the phone-based STELA.
