On July 7, 2017, BIS amended the EAR to reflect changes to the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) annex (agreed to by member countries in 2016). Specifically, the final rule revises thirteen ECCNs, adds one ECCN, revises two EAR defined terms, and makes other conforming EAR changes. All of the changes align the MT controls on the CCL and other parts of the EAR with the MTCR annex.
