AIA Lauds Export Control Reform Enactment

The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) welcomes today’s enactment of the first set of revisions to the U.S. Munitions List (USML) that are removing onerous controls on exports of essentially commercial technology used in military aircraft (Category VIII) and military aircraft engines (Category XIX).  Subjecting these technologies to the export control requirements of the Commerce Control List (CCL) will allow for more appropriate reviews and restrictions while making trade with America’s closest military allies and partners more predictable, efficient and transparent.
