Federal Register Notice Seeking Public Comment

The Bureau of Industry and Security has released an advanced notice of proposed rule making (ANPRM) in the Federal Register on controls for emerging technologies. To help inform this process, this ANPRM proposes several general areas for public comment. Given the challenges involved in identifying emerging and foundational technologies, this ANPRM will help Commerce and other agencies propose specific emerging technologies for control.

Additive manufacturing
Brain-computer interfaces
Advanced materials
Advanced surveillance technologies
Brain-computer interfaces
Advanced materials
Advanced surveillance technologies
Specifically, we are seeking comments on:

How to define emerging technology to assist identification of such technology in the future;
Criteria to apply to determine whether there are specific technologies within these general categories that are important to U.S. national security
Sources to identify such technologies
Other general technology categories that warrant review
Status of development of these technologies in the United States and elsewhere
Impact that emerging technology controls would have on U.S. technological leadership
Other approaches to the issue of identifying emerging technologies
