Two Issues of Note Today From the Bureau of Industry and Security
- The lucky winners of the Update 2007 lottery received an e-mail advising them of their registration ID code that will permit them to register for the program. Recipients of the registration ID code must register for Update 2007 before September 14, 2007 or their registration will be forfeited and transferred to someone on the wait list. The agenda for Update 2007 can be found here. Since we were one of the lucky winners of the Update lottery, we will see you in October.
- BIS also announced today that the next version of the SNAP-R web-based licensing system will be implemented during the weekend of August 25, 2007. According to BIS, some of the changes include: Updates computer-related measurements to reflect the changes from CTP to APP and MTOP to WT; The Product/Model Number field on the electronic BIS-748P license form will be increased from 15 to 30 characters; the help desk phone number will be displayed when a user experiences account lockout; and a rider will be added to all licenses approved for Hong Kong.
