Are you ready for export reform? Major changes to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) will become effective on October 15, 2013.

On September 12, 2013, Morgan Lewis presented an informative webinar that examined these upcoming changes and discussed what can be done to prepare for them.

Topics of discussion included:

  • The revised United States Munitions List (USML) Category VIII
  • The new USML Category XIX
  • The new "600 series" of Export Control Classification Numbers on the Commerce Control List
  • The revised definition of "specially designed" under the ITAR and the EAR
  • General changes to licensing analysis under both regimes
  • The revised EAR license exception, the Strategic Trade Authorization
