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 may have military applications. In order to accomplish this objective, BIS seeks to promulgate clear, concise, and timely regulations. This section of the website provides guidance on key regulatory policies for certain destinations, deemed exports (transfers of technology to foreign nationals), encryption and other specific products. For comprehensive information on export licensing requirements and policies refer to the Export Administration Regulations (Title 15 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 730-774).
