In support of the President’s Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, the U.S. Departments of Commerce and State have published rules revising the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) officially implementing Export Control Reform. The key objective of these changes is to put in place the structure, provisions, and definitions required for the development of a positive control list and allow certain munitions items controlled on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) to move to the licensing jurisdiction of the Commerce Control List (CCL).
This seminar will provide an in-depth understanding of these changes, assist in the transition, and promote compliance with the new regulations. The seminar will specifically address the provisions and issues to effect the transition of items and export transactions from the USML to the CCL. Topics will address realignment of the control lists, CCL order of review, the new “600” series, definition of “specially designed,” and license exceptions.
