Export controls in the United States are enforced through the Defense Trade Regulations (formerly known as the International Traffic in Arms Regulation—ITAR). In the 1980s, any company wishing to export a machine or program that included cryptography needed a license from the U.S. government Authority to regulate imports and exports of products with cryptographic capabilities to and from the United States derives from two items of legislation: the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) of 1949 (intended to regulate munitions) and the Export Administration Act (EAA; intended to regulate so-called dual-use products 3)
The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) The Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) regulates the export of commercial products and technology under the EAR. Articles, information and software, that are not subject to ITAR control, and are not excluded, fall under the EAR In fact, the classification as dual-use good is logic when you think about the fact that cryptography was born out of military needs hundreds of years ago. In the recent decades since World War II, many governments (including the U.S. and its NATO allies) have regulated the export of cryptography for national security considerations As a result, the Administration launched the Export Control Reform Initiative (ECR Initiative) which is designed to enhance U.S. national security and strengthen the United States' ability to counter threats such as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The reform is being implemented in three phases The primary goal of BIS is to advance national security, foreign policy, and economic objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system, and promoting continued U.S. strategic technology leadership
Canada controls the flow of encryption items out of the country through the Export and Import Permits Act, RSC 1985, c E-19, Group 1, Category 5 - Part 2: Information Security. Cryptography falls under the Dual-Use List, as encryption products can be used for military purposes as well as civil and commercial applications The export of encryption products from the United States is regulated by a variety of governmental agencies. The primary regulator of encryption exports is the Commerce Department's Bureau of.. Export control, which is the restriction on export of cryptography methods within a country to other countries or commercial entities. There are international export control agreements, the main one being the Wassenaar Arrangement Syria. Through the Export Controls Act of 2018 (ECA), the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), and other authorities, Congress has delegated, in the context of broad statutory power, to the executive branch its express constitutional authority to regulate foreign commerce by controlling exports
Many nations restrict the export of cryptography and some restrict its use by their citizens or others within their borders. US Law US laws, as currently interpreted by the US government, forbid export of most cryptographic software from the US in machine-readable form without government permission The so-called cryptography law will regulate the role of encryption in both the public and private sector, as well as set forth guidelines for how cryptography should be used to help safeguard national security. and a potential source of imports and exports. National security and trade secrets. due to the very nature of end-to-end. , when the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) were established, initially as part of the Mutual Security Act of 1954
World map of encryption laws and policies. Depending on where you are in the world, the legal status of encryption varies significantly. In some countries, the use of encryption-related technologies is relatively unconstrained; in others, companies and users face significant restrictions Since the 1950s, the United States has depended on its technological advantage as a key component of national security. 2 To retain that edge and support the industries that created it, the United States adopted rules to regulate national security technologies. In the past, such technologies were largely developed by a handful of well-known.
The United States imposes export controls to protect national security interests and promote foreign policy objectives. The United States also participates in various multilateral export control regimes to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and prevent destabilizing accumulations of conventional weapons and related material The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is responsible for implementing and enforcing the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), which regulate the export and re-export of certain commercial items while other U.S government agencies regulate more specialized exports Of course, these were different times with different issues, and cryptography was rarely used. In the 90s, national governments tried to establish full control over emerging encryption technologies. The longest key size the US allowed for internal use and export was 40-bit The legislation culminates and reinforces an evolution in U.S. policy toward protecting an expanded scope of national security interests to include such considerations as technology, manufacturing. Due to the potential national security implications, AI technologies may be subject to US export control laws and regulations. In August 2018, Congress enacted two laws regarding technology export..
The NDAA also contains the Export Controls Act of 2018 1 (ECA), which largely codifies existing export control practice but also implements a new process led by the US Department of Commerce 2 to identify and protect emerging and foundational technologies (a) AMENDMENT TO EXPORT ADMINISTRATION ACT OF 1979.—Section 17 of the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. App. 2416) is amended by adding at the end thereof the following new subsection: ''(g) CERTAIN CONSUMER PRODUCTS, COMPUTERS, AND RELATED EQUIPMENT.— ''(1) GENERAL RULE.—Subject to paragraphs (2) and (3), the Secretary shall have exclusive authority to control exports of all.

It is understood that its purpose is to act as an informal advisory body to (and issue non-binding opinions for) other regulators that consult on the national security consequences of potential. The Export Administration Act of 1979 provides legal authority to the president to control U.S. exports for reasons of national security, foreign policy, or shortage. The Department of Commerce's BIS administers the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) with assistance from Customs and Border Protection International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a United States regulatory regime to restrict and control the export of defense and military related technologies to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives US Congress passed a series of gun control laws to regulate the sale and use of rearms. One of the most important but politically fraught gun control measures is a national gun registry. A US Senate o ce is currently drafting legislation that proposes the creation of a voluntary national gun registration system
One of the bills is called the Safe Act. The only person who would be safe, if that were passed, would be spies, who would be free to export anything of national security interest without any surveillance at all. We cannot support that, and the Department would ask the President to veto it, if it were passed. We strongly support this strategy The Military End-Use provisions (section 112BA) of the Customs Act 1901 provides a power to prohibit the export of tangible goods or technology that are not normally on the DSGL, but could support or contribute to a military end-use that could prejudice the security, defence or international relations of Australia

C3.2.1. Policy on Disclosure of Classified Military Information (CMI) to Foreign Government and International Organizations. DoD Directive 5230.11 implements National Disclosure Policy (NDP-1). It is U.S. national and DoD policy that CMI is a national security asset that must be protected and shared with foreign governments only when there is a clearly defined benefit to the United States. This chapter discusses physical security and with some overlapping areas of premises security. Physical security is a vital part of any security plan and is fundamental to all security efforts-without it, cyber security, software security, user access security, and network security are considerably more difficult, if not impossible, to initiate The purpose of that separate legislation would be to provide the Minister for Defence with a 'catch-all' power to issue a notice to prohibit the export of goods that are not otherwise regulated to a particular place or person when the Minister considers the export could prejudice Australia's security, defence or international relations

The World Bank's senior vice president and chief economist, Kaushik Basu, explains this is because regulations affect the nuts and bolts and plumbing in the economy—the fundamental moving parts that are often too deep for us to see or notice The Natural Gas Act favors granting applications to export to non-free trade agreement countries unless it can be demonstrated that a proposed export is inconsistent with the public interest. In the case of exports of LNG to free trade agreement countries that require national treatment for trade in natural gas, DOE is without any authority to. Unless U.S. companies are permitted to export encryption of at least 75-bits for security purposes, they will continue to suffer economic losses due to industrial espionage. 5.

Overview. As stated in the MRSA, Proc20of2017, ZAF-36, and ZAF-10, the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) is the regulatory authority overseeing medicines and clinical research, as well as medical devices and radiation safety. In accordance with the GRMRSA, the SA-GCPs, and the G-Clin, the SAHPRA is responsible for reviewing and approving all clinical trial. As an important U.S. export control law, the ITAR affects the manufacture, sale, and distribution of technology. The goal of the legislation is to control access to specific types of technology and their associated data. Overall, the government is attempting to prevent the disclosure or transfer of sensitive information to a foreign national The Export Administration Act (EAA) of 1979 (P.L. 96-72) provided legal authority to the President to control U.S. exports for reasons of national security, foreign policy, and/or short supply. The act was in force from 1979 to 1994, with a lapse in 1984-85. During this lapse, and upon the law's expiration, the authority of export regulations was continued by executive authority
