SIDM – USIBC Webinar on Export Control and STA-1

08 – 10 July 2020

Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers (SIDM) in partnership with the US-India Business Council (USIBC), Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Department of Defence Production, (DDP-MOD) and the Directorate General  of Foreign Trade (DGFT) is organizing a series of Webinars to create awareness about export control and Indo-US Defence Cooperation vis-a-viz defence acquisition and export from 08 – 10 July 2020.

The program is an industry outreach initiative of SIDM and USIBC for generating awareness about India’s export control regime, including the licensing framework for munitions and dual-use items, specific policies/schemes under the SOP of DDP and the HBP of DGFT, and update the companies about the recent changes in the export control regime and list of the country.

The focus of the program will be on the revised SCOMET list that was released by the Ministry of Commerce on June 11, 2020. In addition, the STA-1 status given to India by the United States will pave the way for high-technology product export to India from the US. The webinar will help companies understand issues of compliance and enforcement and also look at STA-1 as an opportunity to increase U.S.-India cooperation.
