  • U.S. exporters and importers of defense articles subject to the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) are reminded that starting on May 16, 2009, all new license submissions must be made using the DTrade 2 system. The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) has stated that it has "identified and addressed" the issues encountered in the unintended live “beta test” that began last month.

    While DTrade 1 will be used to process any cases submitted via that system, all new license submissions to the DTrade1 system will be Returned Without Action.

    DDTC has issued a document containing information and tips on using the DTrade2 system to "ensure optimal performance and a better end-user experience."
