Legislation to Terminate RequiredNo
Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*At the current time, the ETTAC has no members and is not accomplishing its purpose because it is awaiting the appointment of new members by the Secretary of Commerce.
How is membership balanced?*The ETTAC is composed of members from academia, industry, federal laboratories, and pertinent U.S. Government departments and agencies.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Once members are selected, the Committee will meet quarterly. The meetings allow the ETTAC to advise the Department of its ongoing activities related to identifying emerging technologies.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The ETTAC will advise the Department on questions involving the identification of emerging technologies with potential dual-use applications as early as possible in their developmental stages both within the United States and abroad. In its work the committee will be forward leaning—focusing both on the current state of such technologies and projecting their likely effects five to ten years in the future on national security, the U.S. defense industrial base, and the overall health and competitiveness of the U.S. economy. The committee will provide assessments and information on emerging technologies, potential so-called “chokepoint technologies” and trends in technologies of particular interest to the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). The committee will advise BIS regarding the potential impact of Export Administration Regulations (EAR) on research activities, technical and policy issues relating to controls under the EAR, revisions of the Control List, including proposed revisions of multilateral controls in which the United States participates, the issuance of regulations and any other matters relating to actions designed to carry out the policy set forth in Section 3(2)(A) of the Act.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A
Recommendation RemarksAuthorized by the Export Adminsitration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. app. 4601-4623) as amended by the Export Administration Amendments Act of 1985, P.L. 99-64, 99 Stat. 120 (July 12, 1985). Although the Export Administration Act of 1979 (EAA), as amended, has expired, its provisions and those of the Export Administration Regulations were continued in effect, and to the extent permitted by law, when the President by Executive Order invoked the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.
