  • The Department of Energy (“DOE”) has published a notice of proposed rulemaking that would significantly revise, for the first time in 25 years, the regulations governing the provision of technology and assistance related to certain foreign nuclear activities by persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction. This long-awaited revision to 10 C.F.R. Part 810, published on September 7, 2011, provides a unique opportunity for industry to comment on and influence the development of the regulations that control the export of unclassified nuclear technology and technical assistance. Comments are due by November 7, 2011.
