Export Control Reform Implementation: Outside Perspectives, Hearing Before the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Sixteenth Congress, First Session on Conducting Oversight on Implementation of the Export Control Reform Act (ECRA), July 18, 2019   [open pdf - 1MB]

This is the July 18, 2019 hearing "Export Control Reform Implementation: Outside Perspectives" held before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. From the opening statement of Mike Crapo: "In August of 2018, the President signed the Foreign Investment Review Modernization Act, called 'FIRRMA,' and the Export Control Reform Act, known as 'ECRA,' into law. FIRRMA is designed to strengthen the existing regulatory architecture in significant ways to deal with inbound foreign investments that would have the potential to threaten U.S. national security interests. ECRA importantly reauthorizes an otherwise moribund Export Administration Act, continued only by annual reissuances of Presidential national security declarations. It authorizes the Bureau of Industry and Security, or BIS, at Commerce to update controls on exports designed to prevent certain U.S. dual-use technologies, lower-level military items, and other things from ending up in the wrong hands. [...] Today's hearing picks up where the Committee left off when it last looked at assessing investment controls on technology in its June 4th hearing on 'Confronting Threats from China.' [...] Today the Committee shifts gears slightly to examine control issues surrounding exports of things outbound from the United States and other re-exports or transfers that may occur abroad." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Eric L. Hirschhorn, Nova J. Daly, Ben Buchanan, and Dennis Ralston.
