The Strategic Trade Management Office (STMO) has released guidelines on the registration for export of strategic goods as well as of individuals involved in financing, brokering, and movement of nationally-controlled goods.
According to STMO Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 21-40 dated November 9 and effective immediately, registration is mandatory in the application for authority to export, import, re-export strategic goods, and to provide related services under the Strategic Trade Management Act (STMA).
Registered persons will be entered into the STMO registry, and these include those who engage or intend to engage in the export, import, and re-export of strategic goods or to provide related services.
Under MC 21-40, any individual who engages or intends to engage in the export, import, and re-export of strategic goods, or to provide related services such as brokering, financing, transporting, or technical assistance, should register directly with the STMO prior to applying for an authorization or a governmental end-use assurance.
