U.S. Commerce Department Seeks Public Comment on Export Restrictions for Emerging Technologies

The U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a notice seeking public comment on how it should define and identify emerging technologies that are not now controlled for export, but should be due to their national security importance.

Representative general categories of emerging technologies on which Commerce seeks comments include: (i) “biotechnology”; (ii) “artificial intelligence”; (iii) “Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) technology”; (iv) “microprocessor technology”; (v) “advanced computing technology”; (vi) “data analytics technology”; (vii) “quantum information and sensing technology”; (viii) “logistics technology”; (ix) “additive manufacturing”; (x) “robotics”; (xi) “brain-computer interfaces”; (xii) “hypersonics”; (xiii) “advanced materials”; and (xiv) “advanced surveillance technologies.”

Comments are due on or before December 19, 2018. IPC will be responding. Please contact IPC Vice President of Global Government Relations, Chris Mitchell, at ChrisMitchell@ipc.org with your questions and perspectives on this notice.
