Defense Export License System to be Shut Down July 3-7
The State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls has announced that the DTrade2 electronic licensing system for defense exports will be shut down from 12:00 p.m. EDT on July 3 until the morning of July 8. Export license applications submitted to this system during that time will receive an error message.
DDTC is taking this step in conjunction with the migration of portions of its license adjudication operations to the Department of Defense’s USXports export licensing computer system as part of the Export Control Reform Initiative. This transition will have no effect on the submission of license applications through DTrade2 or the availability of case statuses and signed licenses and decisions on the DTrade2 and MARY systems. However, the details of statuses contained in these systems will change (see summary here) and the format of the licenses will be different (see sample here).
