The U.S. Department of State's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls announced that the United States government has eased military trade restrictions imposed on Sri Lanka for over eight years.

In a web notice, DDTC stated the licensing restrictions relating to Sri Lanka listed in Consolidate Appropriations Acts for previous years were not carried forward for 2016.

The DDTC said effective immediately, it will review applications for licenses to export or temporarily import defense articles and defense services to or from Sri Lanka under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations on a case-by-case basis.

In 2008, the Department of State amended the International Traffic in Arms Regulations regarding Sri Lanka, to make it United States policy to deny licenses and other approvals to export or otherwise transfer defense articles and defense services to Sri Lanka except, on a case-by-case basis, for technical data or equipment made available for the limited purposes of maritime and air surveillance and communications.

The rule went into effect from March 24th, 2008.
