On October 4, 2018, in response to public comments on regulatory reform, the Department of State published in the Federal Register an interim final rule and request for comments [Public Notice 10349] removing certain notification requirements from the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and revising several entries on the United States Munitions List to remove items that do not warrant continued inclusion. Specifically, the rule adds notes to USML Category IV and V, revises control text in USML Categories VIII, XI and XV, and revises a section of the regulations. Although the rule was effective on publication, comments may be filed by November 19, 2018.
