U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security

The Bureau of Industry and Security is charged with the development, implementation and interpretation of U.S. export control policy for dual-use commodities, software, and technology.  Dual-use items subject to BIS regulatory jurisdiction have predominantly commercial uses, but also have military applications.  The BIS provides access to its rules in order to promulgate clear, concise, and timely regulations governing exports of dual-use items (the “Export Administration Regulations”), codified at 15 Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 7. It also provides discussions of certain key regulatory policy areas, including policies governing exports of high performance computers, exports of encryption products, deemed exports, U.S. anti-boycott regulations, special regional considerations, the multilateral export control regimes, and the technical advisory committees.

In addition to the US export control policy for dual-use items, the Bureau of Industry and Security is also charged with the development, implementation and interpretation of the anti-boycott provisions of the Export Administration Act.  The anti-boycott provisions encourage, and in some cases require, US persons to refuse to participate in foreign boycotts that the United States does not sanction.  US persons are also required to report receipt of boycott-related requests.
