Posted by Rick Phipps on Oct 29, 2015 4:48:00 PM

If you can’t make the Update conference in DC next week, BIS is offering the next best thing. Assistant Secretary Kevin Wolf will conduct an Open Forum by teleconference next week to offer a summary of recent ECR developments. Access instructions are in the full BIS announcement, below.

Also, in case you missed it last week, we have created and UPDATED an “at a glance” graphic of the ECR transition periods, showing a timeline of the respective USML categories.  Click the blue icon below.

BIS Announcement: On Wednesday, November 4, instead of the regular weekly Assistant Secretary teleconference, the teleconference will switch on a one-time basis, to accommodate the annual Update Conference on Export Controls and Policy. Assistant Secretary for Export Administration Kevin Wolf will conduct an Open Forum on Export Control Reform at the Update Conference on Export Controls and Policy in Washington, D.C. and you are welcome to listen in from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and from 1:00-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time. You can use the same regular dial-in number, 1-888-455-8218, and the passcode of 6514196#. For those calling in from outside the United States, you can use the dial-in number 212-547-0330 and the same passcode of 6514196#. Live questions will not be possible, so callers are encouraged to submit questions by e-mail in advance. Staff will do their best to relay e-mailed questions submitted as late as that same day, during the actual teleconference. As always, please submit questions to: ECRweekly@bis.doc.gov
