BIS Announces Creation of Emerging Technology and Research Advisory Committee

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced in today's Federal Register that it is forming and recruiting individuals from the private sector to join the Emerging Technology Research Advisory Committee (ETRAC), a technical advisory committee (TAC) tasked with reviewing and providing recommendations to BIS regarding emerging technology and research issues.

The ETRAC will be responsible for advising BIS on the following four areas:
(1) identification of emerging technology and research development activities related to dual-use commodities;
(2) prioritization of new and existing controls that affect national security;
(3) potential impact of dual-use export controls on research activities; and
(4) threats to national security posed by unauthorized export technologies.

The ETRAC’s main function, which is to reassess and update the Commerce Control List (CCL), was formed as a result of recommendations from the academic and business communities, as well as the Deemed Export Advisory Committee (DEAC). In addition, the President’s Dual-Use Trade Reform directive issued in January called for an ongoing process that would consider input from technical advisory committees in updating the CCL.

BIS is seeking 25 members to join the ETRAC. Individual interested in serving on the ETRAC must be able to qualify for a Secret clearance. The application deadline is July 22, 2008.
