Final Rule issued for USML Category XI (Military Electronics)

Export control reform took another step forward earlier this month, with the publication of the State and Commerce final rules relating to military electronics (USML Category XI).  As with previous reform initiatives, the changes make the USML list of controlled items a positive one rather than a catch-all and moves certain formerly ITAR-controlled items to the Commerce Control List.  Most of the changes will take effect December 30, 2014.  The State Department rule also makes certain changes to Category VIII (Aircraft) that will take effect in August.  These relate to wing folding systems.  Links to the new rules are below.
