DDTC’s New Registration and Licensing Applications

On Tuesday, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) hosted a new webinar as part of their IT Modernization Series. This webinar covered the current status and next steps for the DDTC’s new registration and licensing applications. If you weren’t able to attend, here’s what you missed.

First off, what exactly is IT modernization? It’s a term that’s frequently used in the federal government and surrounding industries. It can mean a variety of things, from something simple like a redesigned website all the way to a complete IT program overhaul. For the DDTC, it means both of those and more. As you might be aware, the DDTC is undergoing a major IT modernization effort to replace all of their legacy systems with new, modern cloud-based technology.

The new platform, the Defense Export Control and Compliance System (DECCS) will provide industry access to a number of DDTC applications through a single online portal. While the DDTC is still testing its new online applications, they are excited about the upgraded user experience which will provide the industry with user-friendly, cloud-based solutions for submitting required documentation and fees – making the process less congested and more secure.

The best part about this new online registration and licensing applications is that you can test it now before it launches. The testing period ends on Monday, December 10 at 5pm. Contact the DDTC Support Team directly at PM-DDTC-DECCS@state.gov to sign up and receive further guidance.

The full webinar presentation and transcript will be made available here shortly.
