Commerce Department Establishes Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee

The Secretary of Commerce announced in today's Federal Register the establishment of the Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee (CINTAC) and a call for nominations to serve on the CINTAC.

The CINTAC's is intended to advise the Secretary of Commerce on the development and administration of programs to expand U.S. exports of civil nuclear goods and services in accordance with applicable U.S. regulations. The Commerce Department will use the information in its role as member of the Civil Nuclear Trade Working Group of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC). Established by Congress in 1992, the TPCC is an inter-agency group that is intended to coordinate U.S. export promotion activities and to develop a strategic plan. The TPCC publishes the annual National Export Strategy.

The CINTAC will advise the Secretary of Commerce on the following matters:

  1. Trade policy development and negotiations relating to U.S. civil nuclear exports;
  2. The effect of U.S. and foreign government policies, regulations, programs and practices on the export of U.S. civil nuclear goods and services;
  3. The competitiveness of U.S. industry and its ability to respond to international opportunities for civil nuclear products and services, including specific exporting problems, and U.S. Government and public/private actions to assist civil nuclear companies in expanding their exports;
  4. Priority civil nuclear products and services markets with high immediate returns for U.S. exports, as well as emerging markets with a longer-term potential for U.S. exports;
  5. Strategies to increase private sector awareness and effective use of U.S. Government export promotion programs, and to make U.S. Government programs more efficiently designed and coordinated;
  6. The development of complementary industry and trade association export promotion programs, and greater or more effective resource allocation for export promotion in the private sector; and
  7. The development of U.S. Government programs to encourage producers of civil nuclear products and services to enter new foreign markets, in connection with which CINTAC may advise on how to gather, disseminate, and promote awareness of information on civil nuclear exports and related trade issues.
The CINTAC, which will be comprised of no more than 20 members, will include representatives from U.S. exporters of civil nuclear products and services, U.S. trade associations and U.S. private sector organizations involved in the promotion of exports of civil nuclear products and services.

Information on how to submit an application to serve on the CINTAC is contained in the Federal Register notice.
