The Bureau of Industry and Security’s Materials Technical Advisory Committee will hold a partially open meeting Feb. 6 in Washington, D.C. This committee advises BIS with respect to technical questions that affect the level of export controls applicable to materials and related technology.

The open session of the upcoming meeting will include a presentation from the Office of Technology Evaluation on (a) changes made to the Automated Export System to prevent inadvertent reporting of errors on exports related to biological items and (b) the DLA survey on strategic materials. There will also be a discussion on recycling carbon fiber, prepeg, cured parts and out-of-life parts from the Composite Working Group, a report from the Biological and Pump/Valves Working Group and a report on regime-based activities.

The open session will be accessible via teleconference to 20 participants on a first come, first served basis. Requests to join this conference are due no later than Jan. 30. In addition, a limited number of seats will be available at the public session, but reservations are not accepted.
