Public comments to the proposed rule that would implement revisions to Categories XIV (toxicological agents, including chemical agents, biological agents, and associated equipment) and XVIII (directed energy weapons) of the US Munitions List (USML) are now posted to the Directorate of Defence Trade Controls (DDTC) website. The proposed rule, at 80 FR 345872, is part of the President’s Export Control Reform effort and would move military items currently in these USML categories to the EAR, while defining more precisely those articles warranting control on the USML.
