SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 28, 2005 the Bureau of Industry and Security published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking that addresses possible regulatory and policy changes would revise the Export Administration Regulations by adopting recommendations from a report by the Office of Inspector General (OIG). Adopting the OIG's recommendations would entail regulatory or other administrative action related to clarifying the definition of “use” technology subject to the EAR, evaluating a foreign national's successive citizenship or permanent residency, and modifying regulatory guidance on licensing technology to foreign nationals working with government-sponsored and university-based research.

The deadline for public comment was May 27, 2005 (70 FR 15607). The Bureau is now extending the comment period until June 27, 2005, to allow the public more time to comment on this proposed rule.
