Proposed Changes to GPS/GNSS Export Controls Published

On February 19, the State Department published a proposed export control rule change affecting GPS/GNSS user equipment.

Among other things, the rule will move the existing GPS/GNSS receiver controls found in Category XV of the U.S. Munitions List (Spacecraft Systems and Related Articles) to Category XII (Fire Control, Laser, Imaging, and Guidance and Control Equipment).

The draft rule is open for public comment through April 4, 2016.
