This testimony compilation is from the January 12, 2016 hearing "Wassenaar: Cybersecurity and Export Control" before the House Subcommittee on Information Technology. From the statement of Kevin J. Wolf: "The Wassenaar Arrangement is a 41-member export control group in which the United States participates. It was established to contribute to regional and international security and stability by promoting greater responsibility in the transfer of conventional arms and dual-use goods and technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations of such items. [...] The U.S. Department of State leads the U.S. delegation to the Wassenaar Arrangement but my agency, the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security, is responsible for developing and administering the U. S. regulations -- the Export Administration Regulations -- that implement U.S. export controls for dual-use and some military items on the Wassenaar control list. Other agencies, primarily the Department of Defense, participate in developing proposed changes to the control list to submit to Wassenaar, deciding whether and which controls to agree to, and reviewing the U.S. regulations to implement controls agreed to by the member states." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kevin J. Wolf, Phyllis Schneck, Cheri Flynn McGuire, Iain Mulholland, Cristin Flynn Goodwin, Dean C. Garfield, Vann H. Van Diepen, and Ann K. Ganzer.
