Inspectors General Report on the Export-Control Process for Dual-Use and Munitions List Commodities: Hearing Before the Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Sixth Congress, First Session, June 23, 1999 [open pdf - 3MB]
S. Hrg. 106-350: Dual-use items are those that have both civilian and military applications and munitions are those that have to do with strictly military applications. Six agencies reported on a review of the licensing processes for dual-use and munitions commodities in an effort to determine what weaknesses still exist and what efforts we make to assess other countries' handling of these items after export. This hearing discusses the report and findings of the Inspectors General interagency review on how the post-Cold War export control system works and how it does not. Also included in this hearing is discussion on the reauthorization of the Export Administration Act. Statements, letters, and material submitted for the record include those of the following: Fred Thompson, Jodeph I. Lieberman, Daniel K. Akaka, Johnnie E. Frazier, Gregory H. Friedman, Donald Mancuso, John C. Payne, Lawrence W. Rogers, and L. Britt Snider.
