Abstract:

The Bureau of Industry and Security BIS conducts critical technology assessments to examine the impact of export controls on key existing or emerging technologies that are subject to the Export Administration Regulations EAR. For a given technology sector, BIS evaluates the scope and impact of current U.S. export controls, foreign export control practices, the sectors economic status, and the foreign availability of product substitutes. This assessment examines the effects of export controls on U.S. manufacturers and exporters of fine grain, high density graphite subject to the EAR for missile technology MT and anti-terrorism AT reasons under Export Control Classification Number ECCN 1C107.a on the Commerce Control List CCL. The parameters of 1C107.a stem from controls established by the Missile Technology Control Regime MTCR.
