The State Department has told Congress it will change two categories in policies governing exports of defense industry-related products, Defense News reports.

Zachary Fryer-Biggs writes the proposals are similar to those published in the Federal Register in late 2011 regarding export of aircraft and other aerospace items and exports of gas turbines and related items.

Congress has a 180-day transition period to review the proposals and the changes become law if Congress takes no action, the report said.

Changes to the aircraft products policies, known as category 8 in the U.S. Munitions List, were intended to clear up division between commercial products and military products, according to the report.

The State Department proposed a new category 19 to detail limits related to export of gas turbines, Fryer-Biggs writes.
