Many believe the current export control system is a multi-layer unwieldy behemoth that no longer serves the national security of the United States. The current Export Control Reform initiative undertakes to overhaul the control lists and other regulations issued by the multiple federal agencies involved, aiming to strengthen and simplify the overall system.
This event, sponsored by WIIT Charitable Trust & Washington International Trade Foundation, will focus on the revision of the two control lists, the role of the Congressional oversight committees, and the national security benefits to clearer control lists. The panel will also discuss what the Export Control Reform process seeks to accomplish more broadly (the “four singularities”: single licensing agency, single control list, single IT platform, single enforcement center), how far it has progressed, and the various roles of Congress in the reform effort.
Larry Christensen will speak as part of this event.
