The Departments of Commerce, Defense, State and NSC Staff recently completed a review
of licensing jurisdiction for “space qualified” items. The Departments plan in the near future
to publish notices for the Federal Register, amending their regulations where appropriate, which
specify the relevant details and technical parameters associated with export control of these items.
This decision also permits a resumption of commodity jurisdiction determinations related to space
technology, which had been deferred pending inter-agency agreement on ìspace qualifiedî
items. Click here to view the summary results of the
