BIS Extends Comment Period on CCL Changes

The Bureau of Industry and Security published a notice in today's Federal Register announcing that it will extend the public comment period on changes to the Commerce Control List from September 17 to November 1, 2007.

On July 17, 2007, BIS published a notice in the Federal Register announcing that it is conducting a "systematic review" of the Commerce Control List (CCL) and is seeking comments from the public on the following topics:

  1. The overall structure of the CCL, including suggestions for how the structure of the CCL may be changed to better advance U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economic interests;
  2. Types of items that should be listed on the CCL and the appropriate levels of controls to be placed on those items, taking into account technology levels, markets, and foreign availability;
  3. Any updates to the CCL item descriptions that would enable the descriptions to better reflect the intent of the multinational controls and to eliminate any overly broad descriptions that inadvertently capture non-critical items that are not controlled by other countries; and
  4. Coordination and harmonization of controls on items covered by the multilateral regimes, such as the Wassenaar Arrangement.
The Commerce Control List, which is found at Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the Export Administration Regulations, identifies the commodities software and technology that are controlled for export and the reasons for control.

Many industry groups and trade associations are currently drafting comments to be submitted to BIS on suggested changes to the CCL. Manufacturers and exporters of products on the CCL are encouraged to participate in this important process.
