On August 1st, DDTC implemented the Open General License (OGL) #1 and #2 pilot program, both of which are effective through July 30, 2023. These OGLs permit the reexport or transfer of most items and certain technical data within and between Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom, provided they were initially exported from the United States under a license or other licensing authority and the transfers take place within the physical locations of the proscribed countries and between or on behalf of the OGL proscribed governments. The items cannot be transferred to or from the United States. Canadian party must be a Canadian Registered Company and U.K. and Australia parties must be Approved Communities as enumerated in the Treaty Reference System (TRS) in DECCS. Restrictions include, but are not limited to, Missile Technology Control Regime and MT items, Major Defense Equipment, limits on the level of technical data that can be transferred, and restrictions on dual and third country nationals.
