  • On March 28, 2005, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) at the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) issued an "Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking" (Notice) involving provisions in the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) governing the transfer of controlled technology to foreign nationals in the United States or abroad, commonly known as the deemed export rule (the Rule). The Notice was drafted in response to a report issued in March 2004 by the Commerce Office of the Inspector General (OIG) that identified potential gaps in the control of such technology transfers.
