The U.S. Department of State announced that, starting May 16, 2009, exporters must use the DTrade 2 application to submit all new license submissions. The State Department announced that licensing submissions will no longer be accepted via DTrade 1, and will be returned without action, directing the applicant to the DTrade2 application.
Exporters can still use DTrade 1 to track status and to attach data to pre-existing cases. Cases submitted to the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) via the DTrade 1 prior to May 16, 2009, will be processed until the review of the submission is complete.
The information about the new licensing application, new forms, and guidelines are available on the DTrade Information Center website.
