Washington, DC -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the U.S. Department of State's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) announced a waiver to the rule requiring exporters deposit permanent export licenses with the Customs and Border Protection.

The notice reads as follows:

“In anticipation of the implementation of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), DDTC is electronically sending CBP registration and licensing data on a daily basis. Since CBP port officials will have access to the DDTC registration and licensing data through ACE, there is no longer a need for exporters to deposit permanent export licenses with CBP prior to filing in ACE.

Effective immediately, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Defense Trade Controls is exercising the authority under 22 CFR 126.3 to waive the requirement under 22 CFR 123.22(a)(1) for exporters to deposit permanent export licenses with CBP prior to filing in the Automated Export System (AES) or ACE. This exemption will remain in effect until DDTC amends the language of 22 CFR 123.22(a)(1) to remove the requirement.”
