The Department of State recently amended the ITAR to revise the licensing exemption for transfers made by or for an agency of the U.S. government. The final rule expands the scope of the exemption to allow for permanent exports, reexports and re-transfers, as well as temporary exports and imports and allows for transfers by third parties acting on behalf of a department or agency of the U.S. government to a department or agency of the U.S. government at its request or to an entity other than the U.S. government at the written direction of a department of agency of the U.S. government or pursuant to an agreement or arrangement for an activity authorized for that department or agency. Previously the exemption was limited to instances in which all aspects of the transaction were affected by a U.S. Government agency or was covered by a U.S. government bill of lading.
Refer to 22CFR §126.4 to review exemption.
