Over the past year, the inter-agency effort to reform the U.S. export control regime has resulted in specific proposals to transfer regulatory oversight of various items and technology from the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) to the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). This transfer of jurisdiction is intended to be accomplished by a restructuring of both the U.S. Munitions List (USML) and the Commerce Control List (CCL).

In this article, Barbara Linney and Kevin Miller discuss U.S. export controls regime reform, including amendments of interest to the shipbuilding industry.
