Export Control Reform – Stay Informed!

Is your company looking for a way to stay informed regarding changes and updates to export control reform (ECR)?  Look no further! The Department of Commerce’s Export.gov has launched a new export control reform website with an informational blog and news updates.  Check out the site here.  The blog provides:

  • Announcements of Proposed Rules and Final Rules
  • Links to teleconferences, speeches and committee meetings; and
  • Reference materials such as Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports and  White House fact sheets, which are useful for understanding the reform process and how it all might affect your company.

If you click around the rest of the site you will find  background information on ECR, explanations of how the Administration plans to reform the system,  industry recommendations for ECR, Administration reports to Congress, and more.  This site is a great way to keep business informed on what is happening in ECR so that companies are not surprised by changes and overwhelmed as reforms progress forward.  Now paying attention is up to you!
