On July 20, 2022, in a Federal Register Notice (FRN), the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) published two open general licenses as part of a pilot program under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). According to the FRN, “This pilot program involves open general licenses that may be used by certain persons in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom to retransfer certain defense articles within each of the three countries and to reexport certain defense articles between and among the three countries.”
The open general licenses, sometimes generally referred to as OGLs, are valid from August 1, 2022 through July 31, 2023. OGL 1 relates to qualifying retransfers within Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. OGL 2 pertains to qualifying reexports between or among those same countries.
