DDTC Limits Registration Period to One Year

The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) published in Friday's Federal Register a final rule amending the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to limit the registration period to one year, instead of up to two years, for both new registrants and for those renewing their registration.

In addition, the regulation states that registrants will be required to submit renewal packages to DDTC no more than 60 days prior to their current expiration. This new regulation is effective immediately.

For the time being, the registration fee remains at $1750 per year, although there is a proposal pending that would modify DDTC's registration fee based on the number of export licenses obtained per year.

The text of the new regulation reads as follows:

Sec. 122.3 Registration fees.

(a) A person who is required to register may do so for a period of 1 year upon submission of a completed Form DS-2032, transmittal letter and payment of $1,750.

(b) Expiration of registration. A registrant must submit its request for registration renewal at least 30 days but no earlier than 60 days prior to the expiration date.

The ITAR requires any person who engages in the U.S. in the business of either manufacturing or exporting defense articles or furnishing defense services to register with DDTC.
