Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced July 30 that India will be moved into Tier 1 of license exception STA (strategic trade authorization), which will expand the scope of exports subject to the Export Administration Regulations that can be made to India without individual licenses. Ross said this change reflects India’s membership in three of the four multilateral export control regimes as well the development of its national export control system.

According to a DOC press release, this regulatory change is expected to result in a greater volume of U.S. exports to India. DOC notes that approximately $9.7 billion worth of licensed exports to India over the past seven years would have been eligible for export under this license exception.
