On September 24, 2021, in a Federal Register Notice (FRN), the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry (BIS) issued a request for comments on risks in the semiconductor supply chain. The FRN notes that ongoing shortages of semiconductors are adversely impacting other industry sectors and identifies “the goal of accelerating information flow across the various segments of the supply chain, identifying data gaps and bottlenecks in the supply chain, and potential inconsistent demand signals.”
The FRN provides a list of questions for responders to consider. Comments are due November 8, 2021.
