The U.S. State Department today released for publication in the Federal Register a final rule that amends the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) by revising Category XII (fire control, laser, imaging, and guidance equipment) of the U.S. Munitions List (USML) to remove certain items from control on the USML and to describe more precisely the articles continuing to warrant control on the USML.
According to the final rule [PDF 277 KB] the State Department is also amending USML Categories VIII, XIII, and XV to reflect that previously described items are now controlled under the revised Category XII or Commerce Control List (CCL) and USML Category XI to move items to the CCL as a result of changes to related control in USML Category XII.
