DDTC published a proposed rule to implement part of President Bush’s January 2008 Export Control Directive that requires initiation of a self-financing mechanism so that up to 75 percent of the DDTC will pay for itself. DDTC proposes a three-tier annual registration fee schedule based on the number of applications submitted during the 12 month period ending 90 days prior to expiration of the current registration, as follows:

  • Tier 1. $2,250 for new registrants or registrants who have not submitted any applications during the relevant period;
  • Tier 2. $2,750 for registrants who have submitted ten or fewer applications during the relevant period; and
  • Tier 3. $2,750 for registrants who have submitted more than ten applications plus an additional fee of $250 for every application submitted over ten during the relevant period.

The current DDTC registration fee is $1750 per year for all registrants, regardless of the number of licenses submitted.
