The ECO Program oversees BIS's seven ECOs and provides support to other U.S. Commercial Service Officers stationed abroad that conduct PLCs and PSVs as well as perform outreach and educational activities and liaise with foreign governments on export control issues. BIS ECOs are Special Agents on detail to the U.S. Commercial Service, and report directly to the Embassies/Consulates to which they are posted. Several of these ECO positions have regional responsibilities extending the reach of their export control activities to forty-three countries. Export Control Officers are located at:
