Bureau of Industry and Security Announces Commerce Control List Updates and Annual Review Process

The U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has announced a series of updates to the Commerce Control List (CCL) as part of a systematic effort to update and refine the U.S. dual-use export control system.

The changes to the CCL were published in the Federal Register last Friday and are the first round of improvements which resulted from a systematic review of the CCL initiated by BIS in 2007, with input from its technical advisory committees and the public. BIS has indicated that it will continue to work with its interagency partners on additional CCL enhancements which were identified during the course of that review.

BIS also announced that it intends to conduct similar systematic CCL reviews in the future, building on the success and lessons learned from the 2007-2008 CCL review. Once the current CCL review is completed, BIS said that it plans to review 1/3 of the CCL each year to create a three year review cycle. BIS noted that the subsequent CCL reviews may allow for a more in-depth analysis of a particular CCL category or industry sector.

BIS has also created an "Establishment of a Regularized Commerce Control List Review Process" web page containing additional information describing the CCL review process. The new site also contains a redlined version of the various recent changes to the CCL.
