CCATS : Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System (CCATS) is an alphanumeric code assigned by the United States Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) to products that it has classified under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Software companies provide the CCATS number because some encryption exports require the exporter to make post-shipment reporting to BIS on a bi-annual basis and the CCATS number is one of the mandatory elements required for reporting.

Usage of Peculiarity Code : Customs authorities can assign peculiarity codes to import and export transactions, to classify products more precisely. You can assign these peculiarity codes to products in the product masters and create them as attributes of import licenses, export licenses, and agreements in license masters

Peculiarity Code is one of the ways to manage CCATS code in GTS.
