The EA Regulations are issued by the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS) under laws relating to the control of certain exports, re-exports, and related activities. The EA Regulations serve the national security, foreign policy, and nonproliferation interests of the United States. They assist the United States in carrying carry out certain international obligations. They restrict access to dual use items by countries or persons that might apply such items to uses inimical to U.S. interests. They protect the United States from the adverse impact of the unrestricted export of commodities in short supply. In addition, they contain provisions designed to ensure that United States persons are not improperly supporting an unsanctioned foreign boycott or restrictive trade practice. The EA Regulations offer authoritative guidance on all of these matters as well as assisting businesses in determining when an export license is necessary; explaining how to obtain one; clarifying the policies that are followed in considering license applications; and explaining how exporters can learn about the latest changes and requirements.
