ABSTRACT

Inspection of The Department of Energy's Automated Export Control System   [open pdf - 999KB]

"The export of commodities and technologies by the United States is encouraged by both the private sector and the Federal Government. These exports help to improve our position in the global economy and are in the national interest of the country. However, exports of commodities and technologies, without regard to whether they may significantly contribute to the military potential of individual countries or combination of countries or enhance the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, may adversely affect the national security of the United States. The Federal Government, therefore, implements several laws, Executive Orders, and regulations to control the export of certain commodities and technologies, which require a license for export. The license applications are processed and tracked by numerous Federal agencies through various automated databases. Collectively, these databases are intended to enable an appropriate level of review and coordination for exports of these commodities and technologies."
