Rule Updates EAR Missile Technology Control Regime

By Government Contracts Editorial Staff

The Bureau of Industry and Security is amending the Export Administration Regulations to reflect changes to the Missile Technology Control Regime Annex from the October 2017 Plenary in Dublin, Ireland, and the May 2017 Technical Experts Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden. The MTCR is an export control arrangement among 35 nations, including most of the world’s suppliers of advanced missiles and missile-related equipment, materials, software, and technology. The regime establishes a common list of controlled items and a common export control policy that member countries implement in accordance with their national export controls. The MTCR seeks to limit the risk of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction by controlling exports of goods and technologies that could make a contribution to delivery systems (other than manned aircraft) for such weapons. This rule revises 17 Export Control Classification Numbers to implement the changes from the meetings and to better align the missile technology controls on the Commerce Control List (Supplement No. 1 to EAR Part 774) with the MTCR Annex. For the text of the final rule, which went into effect on August 30, 2018, see ¶72,750.441.
