Associations Seek Extension of Comment Period for Proposed Export Controls Rule

The Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), Council on Governmental Relations (COGR), and Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), have asked for more time to respond to The U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security's proposed changes to "emerging technologies."

The associations believe the Dec. 19, 2018 deadline for the Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) "will unduly constrain the public's and our universities ability to provide meaningful input on this very complex and technical, but very important topic."

In a letter to the Regulatory Policy Division, the associations asked to extend the comment period from 30 days to "at least sixty days and preferably to 90 days."
