BIS Proposes Clarifications and Expanded Restrictions on License Exceptions

Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 11/9/21 5:00 PM

On October 22, 2021, in a proposed rule, the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) proposed changes to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to “clarify and expand restrictions on the availability of License Exception Strategic Trade Authorization (License Exception STA or STA) for the export, reexport and transfer (in-country) of certain items controlled under the EAR.”

The “Special Conditions for STA” section under certain Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the Commerce Control List would be clarified to refer exporters to the limitations in the EAR. The availability of License Exception STA for certain technology under ECCNs 2E003.f and 1E001 would be restricted.

Comments on these changes may be submitted through December 6, 2021.
