**********************************************************************

New Department of State/ Directorate of Defense Trade Controls License Codes –United
Kingdom ITAR Exemptions (SGB) and Australia ITAR Exemptions (SAU)

**********************************************************************

Effective March 30, 2012, two new License Codes for United Kingdom ITAR Exemptions (SGB) and Australia ITAR Exemptions (SAU) will be added to the Automated Export System (AES).

The International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) is being amended pursuant to the Security Cooperation Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-266). Title I of the Security Cooperation Act, the Defense Trade Cooperation Treaties Implementation Act of 2010, implements the Defense Trade Cooperation Treaty between the United States and the United Kingdom, done at Washington, D.C. and London on June 21 and 26, 2007, respectively. These revisions will include amending the ITAR to include “§126.17 Exemption pursuant to the Defense Trade Cooperation Treaty between the United States and the United Kingdom.” The ITAR will be amended to add the provisions for the Defense Trade Cooperation Treaty between the United States and Australia when the Treaty enters into force. It is anticipated that this treaty will enter into force later this year.

United States Principal Parties in Interest and their authorized filing agents (AES filers) must follow the following new reporting requirements when reporting SGB- United Kingdom ITAR Exemptions and SAU- Australia ITAR Exemptions to prevent the return of fatal errors from AES.

  • Report the Country of Destination as GB – United Kingdom (License Code SGB) or    AU – Australia (License Code SAU)
  • Report one of the acceptable Export Information Codes: MS, GS, OI, OS
  • Report the Mode of Transportation, except pipeline
  • Report the Approved Community Member Number (ACM#) in the Export License Number/ CFR Citation/ Authorized Symbol/ KPC#/ ACM# field

  • Report the DDTC Registration Number
