The deadline for providing public comments to the State Department and Commerce Department’s Notice of Inquiries (NOIs) regarding suggested changes to US Munitions List Category XII and corresponding Commerce Control List VI is March 14th.
If your company or university can provide detailed comments on the direct impact of the suggested language in the NOIs, this is by far ideal. Templates to help guide you in providing these comments, and further information on the NOIs, can be found at http://www.spie.org/export
Not commenting at all will be seen by the inter-agency as having no objections to the proposed regulatory language in the NOIs. The Federal Register notices can be found at the links below.
