Category VIII Transition Period Ending

On October 15, 2013, many items previously under the jurisdiction of USML Category VIII were moved to the jurisdiction of the EAR. In light of this transitional period, a two year window was designated to allow companies with transitioned items to secure BIS licensing. On October 15, 2015, previously issued State Department licenses will no longer be valid for these items, provided the license did not also cover items that did not transition or whose transition period ends at a later date.  Additionally, for MLAs containing solely transitioning items, the agreement is valid for two years after transition or expiration of the agreement.  If the MLA contains both transitioning and not transitioning items, the two year window starts with the transitioning of the agreement’s last USML category.
