    and defense services pursuant to ??38 and 47(7) of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C.

    2778 and 2794(7)). Changes in designations will be published in the Federal Register.

    Information and clarifications on whether specific items are defense articles and services under

    this subchapter may appear periodically through the Internet Web site of the Directorate of

    Defense Trade Controls.

    (b) Significant military equipment: An asterisk precedes certain defense articles in the following

    list. The asterisk means that the article is deemed to be “Significant Military Equipment” to the

    extent specified in ?120.7 of this subchapter. The asterisk is placed as a convenience to help

    identify such articles. Note that technical data directly related to the manufacture or production

     17

    of any defense articles enumerated in any category that are designated as Significant Military Equipment (SME) shall itself be designed SME.

    (c) Missile Technology Control Regime Annex (MTCR). Certain defense articles and services are

    identified in ?121.16 as being on the list of MTCR Annex items on the United States Munitions List. These are articles as specified in ?120.29 of this subchapter and appear on the list at ?121.16.
