Export Transition Resources

Get Ready for the Export USML to CCL Transition Training

The National Shooting Sports Foundation has been at the forefront of the coming reforms to the export control regulations. Now, with the final rules expected to be published this month, transferring firearms and ammunition to the Commerce Department from State, we are offering in-person and virtual training options for members of the firearms and ammunition industry.

Due to an unforeseen delay in the publication of the final transition rules, upcoming in-person and virtual training sessions have been postponed. NSSF will reschedule each for a later date, once we have more clarity on the date of the publication of the final rules.


Training Options:

In February, NSSF hosted a one-of-a-kind training session in Hartford, Conn., with the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). A video recording is now available for each of the NSSF-BIS joint presentations focused on the transition of firearms, ammunition, and accessories from control under the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), to the BIS.

The date for the NSSF and BIS training session in Seattle, WA has been postponed. Any registrants will be notified of the rescheduled date when available. This session will be the first of our joint training sessions to be held after the final rules are expected to be published. Each presentation is designed to help attendees learn about regulations under BIS and how the new regulations need to be implemented in your company’s export business.
