Effective November 14, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls will review newly submitted commodity jurisdiction (CJ) requests that involve articles or services relating to U.S. Munitions List Category VI (Surface Vessels of War and Special Naval Equipment), Category VII (Ground Vehicles), Category XIII (Materials and Miscellaneous Articles) and Category XX (Submersible Vessels and Related Articles) pursuant to the rule revising these categories (Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform, Federal Register, Vol. 78, No. 130, July 8, 2013). This change is necessitated due to current processing times for CJs (approximately 60 days), as the final determinations for CJs submitted after November 14 will not be issued until after the effective date (January 6, 2014) for the above referenced rule. Please note that this change does not affect those requests that have already been submitted and are under review.
