As we reported here, the U.S. government has published an invitation to comment on the criteria for establishing new export controls on what it calls “emerging and foundational technologies.” The list of technology fields targeted for review is as follows:

  1. Biotechnology

  2. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology

  3. Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) technology

  4. Microprocessor technology

  5. Advanced computing technology

  6. Data analytics technology

  7. Quantum information and sensing technology

  8. Logistics technology

  9. Additive manufacturing

  10. Robotics

  11. Brain-computer interfaces

  12. Hypersonics

  13. Advanced Materials

  14. Advanced surveillance technologies

Why Comment?

If your company makes products or creates any know-how in any of these sectors, new export controls could limit your exports and restrict your ability to disclose know-how to foreign nationals, even within the United States, even within your own company.

You may submit public comments on the proposed rule. The current deadline for submission is Wednesday, December 19.
