Revised Satellite Export Control Rules Published

On May 13, 2014, the Departments of State and Commerce released a set of interim final rules that move many commercial satellites and related items from the U.S. Munitions List to the Commerce Control List. This long awaited rule change ends 15 years of burdensome restrictions on U.S. satellite exports. The new rules will take effect in stages from June 27 to November 10, 2014. Comments are invited on certain aspects of the rules, including the controls on commercial remote sensing satellites.
