This applies whether the export is authorized by license or by written approval issued under this subchapter or by exemption.

This includes an invoice, order, packing list, shipping document, correspondence, instructions, and the documents otherwise required by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
