BIS implement additional US export controls on electrical components

Additional controls have been put in place on US exports for advanced computing and semiconductor manufacturing items and end use

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) this month implemented amended rules relating to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) on advanced computing integrated circuits (ICs), computer commodities containing ICs and certain items used in semiconductor manufacturing. 

The BIS has also expanded controls on items used in the manufacture of supercomputers and semiconductors. This rule increases the scope of items produced outside of the USA that are subject to licence requirements for 28 entities located in China that are on the Entity List. Certain activities of US persons that support the development or production of ICs in the PRC (People’s Republic of China) will now require a licence. To avoid semiconductor supply chain disruption, BIS is establishing a Temporary General Licence which if granted will permit specific limited manufacturing activities in China for items destined for use outside of China.

The Bureau is also amending the EAR with the addition of 31 persons to the Unverified List (UVL). The criteria for these persons being added to the list is that the BIS has been unable to satisfactorily carry out an end-use check for reasons beyond the US government’s control. All 31 persons are being added to the list under the destination of People’s Republic of China.
