Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance Closed Due to Building Fire

The State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade (DDTC) controls announced today that a fire occurred early Tuesday morning, March 20, in a portion of the Washington, DC office complex that includes the Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance (DTCC).

The fire occurred before normal duty hours and there were no reports of injury. The fire did not impact DTCC, but the office experienced fairly significant water damage. Other offices within the DDTC were not impacted. As a result, DTCC was closed yesterday and remains closed while damage assessment teams survey conditions. While temporary space is being prepared for the compliance staff, this effort is expected to take 2 to 3 days to complete.

DTCC expects to return to a normal level of operation within one week. In the meantime, industry will experience delays in contacting members of the compliance staff and in the issuance of new and renewing registrations.
