Nope, it's been this way since at least 2006 unless you were already a established customer with "significant" sales, except their method of determining significant sales makes no sense to any one but them.

All due to "exporting liability" ... aka McMaster's lawyers woke up one day and decided that a screw is suddenly covered under ITAR. Mind you the rest of McMaster's business practices are not that much better either.

Fastenal can take my money.
