AIA Recommends Changes to Export Controls

The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) sent a letter to President Obama on Wednesday spelling out changes its members want to the export control system. The President ordered a review of expert controls in August.

The AIA letter lists five areas that are “ripe for early action” including —

  • establishing criteria to identify the most sensitive technologies in need of the most rigorous controls
  • facilitating timely flow of technologies between the United States and its closest allies and partners
  • adopting procedures so that DOD reviews “properly balance both policy and technical considerations, and are completed in a timely and consistent manner”
  • updating treatment of next-generation technologies under U.S. and multilateral export regimes, and
  • reviewing export control compliance requirements, and resource requirements

See AIA’s website for more information.
