The Bureau of Industry and Security has extended from Dec. 19 to Jan. 10 the deadline for input on a rulemaking process that could result in export controls on artificial intelligence, 3-D printing, advanced textile and other materials, and other emerging technologies. A large group of U.S. technology industry executives requested the deadline extension due to the complexity of updating the export control lists without impairing national security or hampering the ability of the U.S. commercial sector to keep pace with international advances in emerging fields.

BIS is inviting comments on (1) how to define emerging technology to assist in the identification of such technology in the future, (2) criteria to apply to determine whether there are specific technologies within the above categories that are important to U.S. national security, (3) sources to identify such technologies, (4) other general technology categories that warrant review, (5) the status of development of these technologies in the U.S. and other countries, (6) the impact specific emerging technology controls would have on U.S. technological leadership, and (7) any other approaches to the issue of identifying emerging technologies important to U.S. national security, including the stage of development or maturity level of an emerging technology that would warrant consideration for export control.
