BIS Issues Final Rule to Remove T 37 Jet Trainer Aircraft and Parts from CCL

On May 6, 2009, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule in the Federal Register, which removes the T 37 jet trainer aircraft and specially designed parts from under the Department of Commerce's licensing jurisdiction on the Commerce Control List (CCL). 

In the final rule, BIS states that although the T 37 jet trainer aircraft appear on the CCL, the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) reviews license applications for these aircraft and parts. Accordingly, BIS is removing the T 37 jet trainer aircraft from the CCL to "avoid potentially overlapping coverage and reduce the possibility of confusion by the public."
