DDTC Announce Change for Agreements Affected by ECR

The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) issued an announcement on February 4th stating the following:

“Effective immediately, DDTC will make a slight change to the validity dates for certain agreements affected by Export Control Reform. If an agreement contains multiple USML categories, the “relevant final rule” now refers to the last rule impacting any of the categories contained in the agreement. This change has been made to alleviate the potential burden on exporters of seeking multiple authorizations or multiple amendments due to the staggered release of the revised USML categories. The Guidelines for Preparing Electronic Agreements, Table 20.1, Note 1, is hereby changed to read: “If an agreement contains multiple USML categories, the “relevant final rule” refers to the last rule impacting any of the agreement’s categories.”
