The Obama Administration notified Congress on March 7 of planned revisions to the U.S. Munitions List (USML) in the aircraft and gas-turbine engine categories. The revisions will move items considered to be non-sensitive or having dual military and commercial uses from the State Department-administered USML to the more flexible Commerce Control List (CCL) under the administration’s export control reform initiative.

The U.S. government is revamping its export control regime for military-related products, a systemic reform long sought by the nation’s aerospace industry. The reform could facilitate prospective deals being pursued by U.S. companies here in the Asia Pacific region and other parts of the world.

The issue of military exports pits advocates of weapons nonproliferation against those who argue that the U.S. must remain economically competitive with other nations. But there is wide acknowledgment that the existing system of vetting products and technologies for export is deficient.
