The two-day program is led by BIS's professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR, steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item, how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN), when you can export or reexport without applying for a license, export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements, and real life examples in applying this information. Presenters will conduct a number of "hands-on" exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company's export activities. This program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.

Export Control Reform: Administration Publishes Changes to Regulations Controlling Exports of Military Electronics

 

The U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Commerce published regulations today that streamline U.S. export controls on certain military electronics by shifting less sensitive equipment, parts, and components from Category XI of the Department's U.S. Munitions List (USML) to the Department of Commerce's Commerce Control List (CCL). These changes, which are part of the President's Export Control Reform Initiative, enhance our national security by increasing interoperability with our close allies and partners. These changes also reduce incentives for purchasers to deliberately avoid U.S.-origin parts and components. As a result of these changes, the United States will have greater visibility on arms transfers and end-uses of concern, including human rights abuses. The changes will take effect on December 30, 2014.

Updating U.S. export control lists is a key component of the President's Export Control Reform Initiative. Export Control Reform increases the competitiveness of key U.S. manufacturing and technology sectors by focusing our controls on current threats, as well as adapting them to the changing economic and technological landscape. The initiative overhauls the Cold War-era system of regulations on exports of controlled technologies. Changes to Category XI were based on exhaustive technical and policy reviews conducted by the Departments of State, Defense, and Commerce, as well as representatives from other relevant departments and agencies. These reforms were also developed in close consultation with Congress and the private sector, which provided extensive public review and comment on the proposed changes.

With this final rule, 15 of 21 Categories of the U.S. Munitions List have been successfully revised under the Export Control Reform Initiative. Work continues on the remaining categories and other efforts to modernize and harmonize the export control regulations.
