  • What are emerging and foundational technologies?
  • How will these new controls affect exports of artificial intelligence, driverless vehicle, advanced computing, additive manufacturing and microelectronics technology?
  • What licensing requirements will apply?
  • What should companies consider when preparing comments to proposed USG rules?
  • What can companies do to prepare for these new controls?
