Proposed Comprehensive Revisions to the U.S. Export Administration Regulations


In furtherance of President Obama's directive in 2009, to the various agencies that are charged with administering U.S. export laws, to conduct a broad-based review of the U.S. export control system, the U.S. Departments of Commerce and State, by advance notice of proposed rulemaking, notified the public of plans for revising the Commerce Control List (CCL) contained within the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), as well as the U.S. Munitions List (USML) contained in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

In furtherance of this objective, the Commerce Department intends to publish in the Federal Register of July 15, 2011, a new "regulatory construct" to deal with the transfer of items from the USML that the Obama administration determines no longer warrant control under the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and that would be controlled under the EAR.
