Today’s BIS notice (PDF 213 KB) indicates that the current foreign policy-based export controls maintained by the BIS, as set forth in the EAR, include:

  • Commerce control list (CCL) based controls
  • End-user and end-use based controls
  • Embargoes and other special controls

In requesting comments, BIS has posed a series of questions such as what effect these controls have on sales of U.S. products to third countries and how can the controls be brought more in line with multilateral practices. Comments are due within 30 days after the notice is published in the Federal Register (scheduled for September 7, 2017).
