Do you need more info about the new “600 series”? Trying to figure out if License Exception STA is right for you? Does “specially designed” have you more confused now than before?
Answers to these, and many more, questions are now available on the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) website. (From the home page, click the “Reform” tab, and then “ECR FAQs.”) In total, BIS has published 45 answers to frequently asked questions covering a variety of issues surrounding President Obama’s Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative. These FAQs were generated by the questions that exporters have submitted to BIS during its weekly ECR teleconference.
The questions are grouped by category, and go a long way in helping exporters understand the recent changes. They are a good supplement to the export control reform tools published by BIS late last year.
