In a Federal Register Notice (FRN) on August 14, 2023, and corrected FRNs on August 21, 2023, and August 29, 2023, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amended the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to add additional nuclear nonproliferation controls on China and Macau in response to China’s “military modernization efforts, miliary-civil fusion strategy, and expansion of its nuclear force.” The amendment applies Nuclear Nonproliferation column 2 (NP2) control reasons for China and Macau in the Commerce Country Chart and adds a license requirement for the controlled items.

The original FRN details the changes and can be found here:
