BIS Publishes Proposed Rule Making SNAP-R Mandatory

On October 19, 2007, the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published in the Federal Register a proposed rule which would require that export and reexport license applications, classification requests, encryption review requests, License Exception AGR notifications and related documents be submitted to BIS via its Simplified Network Application Process (SNAP-R) system. This requirement would not apply to applications for Special Comprehensive Licenses or in certain situations in which BIS would authorize paper submissions.
