Companies subject to US export control rules take note: recent revisions that are likely to prove complicated in their implementation will go into effect soon. From attorney Joseph Gustavus at Miller Canfield:
“The first significant reforms to the U.S. export control regulations in International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) are about to take effect.
With the 30-day Congressional notification period concluding on April 7, 2013, the initial changes to the USML, comprised of (1) revisions to USML Category VIII (Aircraft and Related Articles), and (2) the establishment of a new USML Category XIX (Gas Turbine Engines), were published by the U.S. State Department on April 16, 2013 in the form of a final rule (ITAR Initial Reform Rule). The ITAR Initial Reform Rule is effective 180 days after publication or October 15, 2013.”
