The DDTC Joins Industry Roundtable Hosted by Orchid Advisors and the American Suppressor Association
Join us on Thursday, October 15th at 3:30pm (EDT) for a live webinar hosted by Orchid Advisors, the American Suppressor Association (ASA) and the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). The focus of the discussion is to educate manufacturers and distributors on how to correctly implement DDTC’s recent rule change on exporting suppressors. Phil Milks, Orchid LLC’s VP of Regulatory Services, will serve as the moderator.
Phil Milks, who was recently appointed to the American Suppressor Association (ASA) Board of Directors, said, “We have been working with our customers over the last few months on how to correctly implement this recent rule change. Our team thought it would benefit the industry if we shared what we have learned, and are grateful to the DDTC for joining us.”
Milks will host an esteemed panel that includes:
- Knox Williams, President & Executive Director of the American Suppressor Association
- Owen Miller, Director of Outreach, American Suppressor Association
- Jordan Young, Orchid LLC’s Director, ITAR / EAR Practice
- Alex Douville, Light Weapons Systems Co-Lead (Division 6) (DDTC)
- Wilbert P (Pete) Walker, Light Weapons Systems Co-Lead (Division 6) (DDTC)
Knox Williams, President & Executive Director of the ASA said, “Although we prefer to host our educational sessions in person, Covid-19 has prevented us from being able to do so in a timely fashion. This is a particularly important topic, so conducting the roundtable virtually is critical. We are excited to work with Orchid Advisors to host this and other educational opportunities in the future.”
The focus of the discussion is to educate manufacturers and distributors on how to correctly implement the DDTC’s recent rule change on exporting suppressors. We will not be requesting any changes to the current policy.
