DDTC is encouraging manufacturers to review the form and to consider using it in connection with Commodity Jurisdiction requests.
Note that the estimate for completing this form is 10 hours per response, which includes time required for searching existing data sources, gathering the necessary data, providing the information required, and reviewing the final information to be submitted.

The purpose of a Commodity Jurisdiction request is to determine whether an item or service is covered by the U.S. Munitions List (USML) and therefore subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) or if the item or service is subject to the jurisdiction of the Commerce Department's Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
