Talk of reform seems to always make people jittery. Not because anyone is opposed to making things better or more efficient. Rather it is the uncertainty of what’s to come that causes so much consternation. So, with a number of new export control reforms in effect as of October 15, my message is simple: Don’t panic. Much of what you need to know is already available, either through notices in the Federal Register, online tools or even BIS or DDTC training materials.. These resources can and do foreshadow and clarify a lot of the fuzziness that can come with new rules and regulations.
