OMB Approves BIS 2021 Wassenaar Final Rule

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs announced that it had approved a final rule from the DOC’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) for “Implementation of 2021 Wassenaar Arrangement Decisions”. The rule will revise the Commerce Control List (CCL) to implement the remaining changes made to the Wassenaar Arrangement List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies. In August, BIS published their Emerging and Foundational Technologies rule that addressed some of the areas of the 2021 Wassenaar agreement. 

The August rule did not address any cybersecurity issues. There is no current information on whether or not this current final rule will address those issues.
