Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security is requesting comments through May 31 on the proposed extension of the following information collections.

- Simple Network Application Process and multipurpose application form

- licensing exemptions and exclusions

BIS has worked with other government agencies and the affected public to identify areas where export licensing requirements may be relaxed without jeopardizing U.S. national security or foreign policy. Many of these relaxations have taken the form of licensing exceptions and exclusions, some of which have a reporting or recordkeeping requirement to enable the government to continue to monitor exports of these items. Exporters may choose to utilize the license exception and accept the reporting or recordkeeping burden or continue to submit license applications.
