Proposed Rulemaking Under ECRA Signals Tightening of Export Control Restrictions

Signed into law in August 2018, the Export Control Reform Act ("ECRA") significantly alters U.S. export policy by placing new emphasis and potential controls on critical technologies essential to the nation's security. As part of an effort to identify those technologies, the U.S. Department of Commerce has published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking, initiating a 30-day public comment process.

This White Paper explains some of the ECRA's key components and offers guidance to companies involved with the affected technologies and industries.
