Amendments to Permanent or Temporary Export and Temporary Import State Department Licenses

News & Blog

The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) may approve an amendment to a license for permanent export (DSP-5), temporary export (DSP-73), and temporary import (DSP-61) of unclassified defense articles for the following circumstances:

Addition of U.S. freight forwarder or U.S. consignor; change due to an obvious typographical error; change in source of commodity; and change of foreign intermediate consignee if that party is only transporting the equipment and will not process (e.g., integrate, modify) the equipment.

The following types of amendments to a license will not be approved: Additional quantity, changes in commodity, country of ultimate destination, end-use or end-user, foreign consignee and/or extension of duration. The foreign intermediate consignee may only be amended if that party is acting as freight forwarder. A new license is required for these changes. Any new license submission must reflect only the unshipped balance of quantity and dollar value.
