"State Department Amends 'Brokering' Rules for Defense Trade"

On August 26, 2013, the U.S. State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls published its long-delayed "interim final rule" amending the rules governing the "brokering" of transactions involving defense articles or services. 

This Stroock Special Bulletin provides an overview of the interim final rule which, although it abandons some of the more controversial provisions of the proposal that the State Department issued in December 2011, makes a number of significant amendments to the current regulations.
