OMB Approves BIS Advanced Computing Final Rule

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved a final rule from the DOC’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) on “Implementation of Additional Export Controls: Certain Advanced Computing Items and Semiconductor Manufacturing Items; Supercomputer and Semiconductor End Use; Updates to the Controls and Corrections”. The final rule was sent to OIRA on November 27th, 2023.

Three different versions of an interim final rule have been published:

October 25th, 2023,

January 18th, 2023, and

October 13th, 2022

It is not clear from yesterday’s notice whether this will be an actual final rule or just another interim final rule. Typically, these rules have not had direct cybersecurity implications, so it may not be covered in the blog beyond a mention of the publication in a daily ‘Short Takes’ post.
