U.S. Administration Exempts DDTC from Limit on New Regulations


Mr. Brian Nilsson, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Defense Trade Controls, stated at the public meeting of the Defense Trade Advisory Group (DTAG) today in Washington, DC, that DDTC is exempt from the Administration’s limit on new regulations, so plans are continuing to issue new or revised regulations this year for the following subjects:

  • Defense services
  • Public domain
  • Technical data
  • Fundamental research
  • ITAR 126.4 exemption
  • US persons abroad – registration and licensing requirements

DDTC welcomes public suggestions for amendments of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and for DDTC operations such as the website format, and agency training and outreach. Submit them to DDTCResponseTeam@state.gov.
