Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security is seeking comments no later than Feb. 27 on an information collection entitled “Technical Data Letter of Explanation.” Such letters assure BIS that U.S.-origin technical data will be exported only for authorized end-uses, end-users, and destinations. The information contained in the letters describes the transaction and fixes the scope of technology to be exported, the parties to the transaction and their roles, the purpose for the export, and the methods authorized to be used in exporting the technology. The letters also place the foreign consignee on notice that the technical data is subject to U.S. export controls and may only be reexported in accordance with U.S. law.
