State/DDTC: Seeks Comments on Open GL Recordkeeping 


 DDTC has launched a pilot program pursuant to its authorities in ITAR § 120.22(b) in order to assess the concept of an Open General License (OGL) mechanism by which it may authorize certain transfers of defense articles to predetermined parties. 

DDTC seeks to ensure that persons who rely on any current or future OGLs to conduct reexports and retransfers abroad retain the same records as would be required if their transactions were authorized by either a specific license or an exemption. Accordingly, DDTC has restated the record-keeping requirements articulated in ITAR § 120.15(e) in the OGLs themselves.
