One of the most challenging elements of export control reform (ECR) for industry, universities and the research community will be dealing with the transition of controls over technology and technical data. Here are just a few of the critical questions for compliance raised by the new rules:
- How will technical data and technology now tied to articles on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) be regulated after those articles are transferred to the Commerce Control List (CCL)?
- What controls and restrictions have to be applied to technical data that was under the USML but now is under the CCL?
- What happens when there is mixture of USML and CCL technology involved?
- How will Technical Assistance Agreements (TAA) and Manufacturing Licensing Agreements (MLAs) need to be amended?
- When will USML controls lapse and what new controls will be applied to technology transferred to the new 600 series on the CCL?
This timely audio-conference briefing will address these and many more questions about future export controls on technology. Our speakers are experts on the new rules and will provide the details you must know on how the Departments of Commerce and State intend to regulate this vital area.
