The Chairman of the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) published a Memo establishing new Joint Capability Integration and Development System (JCIDS) requirements for Defense Exportabiity on April 15, 2019.

- Allied/partner interoperability should be addressed in the CONOPS section of JCIDS Initial Capabilities Documents (ICDs)

- Standard Defense Exportability language should be included as a Key System Attribute (KSA) in JCIDS Capability Development Documents (CDDs) for systems with export potential as determined by the Milestone Decision Authority (MDA) at Milestone A

The JROC Memo encourages DoD Components to begin incorporating these Defense Exportability aspects into current and future JCIDS requirements documents.  The next issuance of the JCIDS Manual will be updated to reflect these changes.
