The US Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) each issued companion final rules (see here and here) that will amend the EAR and the ITAR, respectively, to harmonise the destination control statement language provided in both sets of regulations. These actions are the latest in a series taken pursuant to the President’s Export Control Reform initiative. Both rules will take effect on 15 November 2016.
