BIS Announces Initial Steps to Implement Deemed Export Advisory Committee Recommendations

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced today that it has completed its review of the Deemed Export Advisory Committee's (DEAC) December 20, 2007 report and has started working with the Departments of Defense, State and Energy to consider the report's analysis and recommendations as a basis for reforming current deemed export policy.

While certain proposals under active consideration will require interagency review and support, Under Secretary Mario Mancuso has directed BIS to immediately:

  • Create an Emerging Technologies Advisory Committee, composed of representatives from leading research universities, government research labs and industry to make recommendations to BIS regarding emerging technologies on a regular basis; and
  • Improve outreach and engagement efforts to the academic and technology communities about the progress and scope of the deemed export policy efforts.
Other recommendations in the DEAC report, such as creating a category of "Trusted Entities", performing an annual "sunset review" of technologies contained on the Commerce Control List and expanding the determination of the national affiliation of potential licensees will require regulatory changes to implement.

The full text of the DEAC report, entitled "The Deemed Export Rule in the Era of Globalization" can be found here.
