U.S. Export Controls

Export Controls on Defense Articles, Services, and Technologies

Military related products, services and technologies are defined by the U.S. Munitions List (USML) and export of these items are controlled under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) administers these export controls in coordination with the Defense Department’s Defense Technology Security Administration (DTSA), as well as the Departments of Justice, Energy and Commerce. Controls on USML listed defense articles, services, and technologies are very strict and violations carry potentially severe penalties, both civil and criminal.

Stewart and Stewart assists both U.S. and foreign entities in meeting their registration and licensing obligations under these laws, whether manufacturing, exporting, or acquiring companies and technologies covered by the USML.
Export Controls on Dual-Use Items

Dual-use items (i.e., items useful in both a military and commercial context) and related software and technologies that are subject to export controls are set forth in the Commerce Control List (CCL) and the restrictions are described in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) (formerly known as the Bureau of Export Administration or BXA) administers the EAR and coordinates its decisions with the Departments of State, Defense, Energy and other agencies as appropriate. Export restrictions on dual-use items also are rigorously enforced and violations can incur heavy penalties, both civil and criminal.
