The Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) requires a specific note be included in all Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOAs) regarding Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR). The purpose of this memorandum is to revise the MTCR note wording.

The attached table provides specific text for the MTCR note and indicates when the note should be included on LOAs, Amendments, and Modifications. This new note replaces the MTCR note in Table C5.T5. of the SAMM (SAMM E-Change 3) and should be used on any future cases.

This policy is not retroactive --- there is no need to do Modifications or Amendments to either add this note to existing cases or to revise the MTCR note on existing cases. If you have any questions regarding this note, please contact Steve Harris, DSCA/P3-Policy and Plans Division, (703) 604-6611 or LTC James Gentile, DSCA/P3-Weapons Division, (703) 604-6622.
