UPDATE: IMPACT OF GOVERNMENT CLOSURE, DDTC INDUSTRY NOTICE JAN 22
The following notice is an update from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls homepage.
Industry Notice: (1.22.18)
Due to the lapse in Government funding that occurred at 12:01am on Saturday, January 20, 2018, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls has halted all processing of license requests except for those that provide direct support to the military, humanitarian aid, or other similar emergencies. All electronic submissions of license requests (DSP-5, DSP-6, DSP-61, DSP-62, DSP-73, and DSP-74) will be rejected by the system and returned to the applicant. Requests that are in the “In-Review” status as of January 22, 2018, will remain in that status and no further review will occur until after government funding is restored. If industry applicants believe they have a case (either “In-Review” or new submission required) involving direct support to the military, humanitarian aid, or other similar emergencies, please email Tony Dearth at DearthAM@state.gov. The subject line of your email MUST read “Request for Emergency License” and the message must include the applicant name and registration code, the end-use/end-user, justification for needing an emergency license, and a point of contact. The Directorate will contact the requestor with guidance on how to proceed if the request will be honored.
