BIS Meeting to Review Export Control Reform Efforts
The Bureau of Industry and Security has announced that the President’s Export Council Subcommittee on Export Administration will hold a partially closed meeting March 25 in Washington, D.C. The PECSEA provides advice on matters pertinent to those portions of the Export Administration Act that deal with U.S. policies of encouraging trade with all countries with which the United States has diplomatic or trading relations and of controlling trade for national security and foreign policy reasons. The open session of the meeting will include opening remarks by the chairman and BIS, an update on ongoing export control reform efforts, a presentation of papers or comments by the public, and working group updates. The open session will be accessible via teleconference to 25 participants on a first come, first served basis. A limited number of seats will also be available for the public session but reservations are not accepted.
