Revisions to the EAR: Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform

Am 16. April 2013 machte die US-Administration im Rahmen der Reform des US-Exportkontrollrechts im Federal Register weitere Änderungsvorschläge, sowohl die Export Administration Regulations (EAR) als auch die International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) betreffend, bekannt. Diese sehen vor, dass gewisse, als weniger kritisch betrachtete Güter nunmehr nicht länger von der U.S. Munitions List (USML), sondern der Commerce Control List (CCL) erfasst sind.


Nachfolgend finden Sie den Originaltext aus dem Federal Register vom 16. April 2013:


Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform

As part of the Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), and the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), Department of State, have published multiple proposed amendments to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), respectively, to strengthen national security by fundamentally reforming the export control system. This final rule implements the initial ECR changes by adding a structure and related provisions to control munitions items that the President has determined no longer warrant  export control on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) on the Commerce Control List (CCL), specifically aircraft, gas turbine engines, and related items. This rule is being published in conjunction with a Department of State rule that revises the USML so that upon the effective date of both rules, the USML and CCL and corresponding regulatory structures will be complementary. The revisions in this final rule are also part of Commerce’s retrospective  regulatory review plan under EO 13563, which Commerce completed in August 2011. This final rule is effective October 15, 2013.
