U.S. expansion of nuclear nonproliferation controls on China and Macau

Final rule amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce today released for publication in the Federal Register a final rule amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding additional nuclear nonproliferation controls on China and Macau—in response to China’s military modernization efforts, military-civil fusion strategy, and expansion of its nuclear forces.
According to the final rule [PDF 262 KB], the change specifically applies to items controlled for nuclear nonproliferation (NP) column 2 reasons for control. These controls enhance U.S. government efforts to monitor the export of these items and confirm they are only being used in peaceful activities, such as commercial nuclear power generation, medical developments, production of or use in medicine, and non-military industries.
The final rule is effective today, August 11, 2023.
