DDTC Releases New Version of DS-2032 Registration Form that Must Now be Used by Exporters, Manufacturers and Brokers of Defense Articles

The State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) has issued a new version of the Statement of Registration form (DS-2032).

Effective immediately, companies registered with DDTC as manufacturers, exporters and brokers of defense articles must use version 4.0 of the DS-2032 form to renew registrations or to obtain a new registration. Prior versions of the form will not be accepted by DDTC after October 25, 2013.

The new DS-2032 form can be submitted to DDTC electronically or in hard-copy until December 31, 2013. However, starting on January 1, 2014, the DS-2032 must be submitted to DDTC electronically. 

The latest version of the DS-2032 form includes a number of changes from previous versions of the form and makes changes due to the Export Control Reform process, including:

  • Allows companies to consolidate their manufacturer, exporter and broker registrations;
  • Updates the USML Categories, including adding new USML Category XIX for gas turbine engines;
  • Allows for disclosure of intermediate parent and ultimate parent companies;
  • Expands the certification requirements. 

The updated version of DDTC's DS-2032 form can be found here

Amendments to ITAR's Brokering Requirements

Persons or companies registered as "brokers" under the ITAR should be aware that significant changes to the brokering provisions of the ITAR went into effect on October 25, 2013. 

As a result of the changes to Part 129 of the ITAR, certain parties that were previously considered to be brokers under the ITAR may no longer be required to register with DDTC as a broker.
