Directorate of Defense Trade Controls

- Services are significantly curtailed, including processing requests for licenses, advisory opinions, commodity jurisdiction requests, voluntary self-disclosures, and retransfers, except for those that provide direct support to the military, humanitarian aid, or other similar emergencies.

- All D-Trade electronic submissions will be rejected by the system and returned to the applicant.

Office of Foreign Assets Control

- Online licensing services are inaccessible.
