US: COMMERCE DEPARTMENT AMENDS THE EXPORT ADMINISTRATION REGULATIONS TO IMPLEMENT REVISED UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEM LICENSING REVIEW POLICY

On 13 February, an article from Baker McKenzie said that on 12 January, the Department of Commerce issued a final rule amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement recent licensing review policy changes for exports of US-origin UAS (aka drones).  Certain UAS covered by Category I of the Missile technology Control regime (which were subject to a strong presumption of denial) would be treated as though such UAS were covered by MTCR Category II (which are subject to a more flexible case-by-case review policy for export licensing purposes).   The licensing review policy changes implemented by the Final Rule are motivated by the rapid evolution of UAS technology in recent years.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
