Status of DDTC Under Government Shutdown

News & Blog

Due to the lapse in funding affecting the Department of State that occurred on Saturday, December 22, 2018, services at the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls are significantly curtailed, including requests for licenses, advisory opinions, and retransfers except for those that provide direct support to the military, humanitarian aid, or other similar emergencies.  All D-Trade electronic submissions will be rejected by the system and returned to the applicant.  Requests that are currently in process at DDTC as of December 21, 2018, will remain in that status, however; further review actions will be delayed until after restoration of funding.
