Product Classification

SimplyMEPIS Linux, including the current release version 8.x.xx, contain some cryptographic features that qualify them to be classified under ECCN 5D002. However all SimplyMEPIS Linux cryptographic features are provided by open source components that are obtained from US based Debian Linux public package pools which are exported under License Exception TSU, therefore SimplyMEPIS is also exported under License Exception TSU in accordance with 15 CFR 740.13(e)
