We will cover the recently published proposed changes to Categories I, II, & III from DDTC during the webinar. The proposed changes are considerable and contain a lot of “hidden” nuggets that could surprise, dare we say disappoint, some.

When it comes to U.S. export controls, there are many things that distinguish firearms and ammunition from other items.  This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the license requirements to export firearms and ammunition.  We will examine the challenges inherent in dealing with civilian and government or military customers and the unique impact politics has on the export licensing process.
