The Bureau of Industry and Security is accepting comments through Jan. 16 that will be used to help inform the work of the Japan-U.S. Commercial and Industrial Partnership Export Control Working Group.
The JUCIP was established in November 2021 to strengthen the competitiveness, resiliency, and security of both economies; address shared global challenges; and achieve prosperity and maintain a free and fair economic order. The Export Control Working Group has already established a work plan on export control cooperation that will further strengthen technical consultations on current and possible future legislative and regulatory developments, sensitive dual-use technologies, and advanced technologies that may be used for human rights violations or abuses.
BIS is now soliciting comments on ways that existing U.S. and/or Japanese dual-use export control policies and practices may be more transparent, more efficient and effective, and more convergent, including in identifying and controlling emerging or foundational technologies, and in better facilitating research collaboration between Japan and U.S. research organizations. BIS states that comments providing specific and concrete examples where further convergence in export control practices and policies could enhance international security and support a global level playing field and joint technology development and innovation would be particularly helpful.
