Expeditors News: “U.S. Signs United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement” 

Expeditors News, 30 Nov 2018.)
On November 30, 2018, the United States, Canada, and Mexico signed the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in Argentina.
The USMCA agreement requires 75% of vehicle content be produced in North America, with 40-45% of the content produced by North American workers making at least $16 per hour in wages. Additionally, the USMCA contains chapters on labor reform and protections for intellectual property rights. The administration intends for the USMCA to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Congress must still pass the USMCA before it can be put into effect.

Federal Times: “The Government Must Define ‘Emerging Technology’ To Protect It”

Federal Times, 1 Dec 2018.) [Excerpts.] 
The Department of Commerce is fast-tracking efforts to identify and establish export controls on “emerging technologies” deemed essential to the national security of the United States.
The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) 
published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking Nov. 19, kicking off a 30-day public comment process on a rule that would impose export restrictions on a host of broadly defined new technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning algorithms, biotechnology, microprocessor technology and robotics.
The purpose of the notice is to solicit public feedback on how to properly define and identify these 
emerging technologies and to determine the degree to which they are essential to U.S. national security. …

International Trade Compliance Update: “Creation of Proposed SPV to Protect EU Companies from U.S. Sanctions Against Iran Continues to Be Delayed”

International Trade Compliance Update, 30 Nov 2018.) 
Following the snap-back of US sanctions on 5 November 2018, Foreign and Finance Ministers from the UK, France, Germany and the EU published a joint statement in which they expressed their “regret” at the re-imposition of sanctions on Iran by the US and also reiterated their “aim to protect European Economic operators engaged with legitimate business with Iran”. These comments suggest that the EU is determined to continue economic relations with Iran and that the proposed Special Purpose Vehicle (“SPV”), announced by the EU on 24 September, is still under consideration.
Little detail has been forthcoming in terms of how the SPV would work operationally since the EU’s announcement regarding the decision to establish the SPV. At the time of the EU’s announcement, the SPV was described as a legal entity that would facilitate “legitimate financial transactions with Iran” in order to allow European companies to continue trading with Iran despite the threat of US sanctions. It was also suggested that the SPV may be opened to companies in other countries in order for them to engage in Iran-related transactions.
Practically, it is likely the SPV would engage in Iran-related transactions on behalf of companies and the SPV would therefore assume the risks that would otherwise be taken on by individual companies when engaging in Iran-related transactions. Furthermore, we envisage that the SPV would operate outside of the US dollar financial system, especially in light of the Trump administration’s comments on 2 November that the financial messaging service SWIFT could be targeted by sanctions for providing services to Iranian financial institutions. SWIFT has since announced that it will be suspending certain Iranian banks from accessing its messaging system.
However, it has been reported that the EU is struggling to find a country to host the SPV with reports indicating that Austria had refused. As such, the SPV appears to be a long way from creation.

M.C. Horowitz & A. Mathewson: “A Way to Rein in Drone Proliferation”

Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, 30 Nov 2018.) [Excerpts.] 
* Authors: Michael C. Horowitz, professor of political science and associate director of Perry World House at the University of Pennsylvania; and Andro Mathewson, research fellow at Perry World House.
The proliferation of military drones worldwide is accelerating at an alarming rate, due to the willingness of certain states, like China, to export them widely. Eighteen countries may now have armed drones, with more than a dozen seeking to acquire them. (Armed drones, in this context, being those made for military purposes.) … 
This spread of military drones-also known as Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)-is an important international security issue for several reasons. Chief among them is that many countries buy armed drones from exporters who care little about how the buyers use them. When the United States sells a weapon system to a partner or ally, it requires the buyer to abide not only by international law, but also by additional US restrictions. The United States has leverage because it can cut off the supply of replacement parts and ammunition. …

This memo summarizes the regulatory and enforcement developments with respect to U.S. and multilateral export controls during the month of November 2018. Changes to the regulations published in the Federal Register are explained at greater length in the Regulatory Summary, as is our custom.

BIS Seeks Public Comment on Criteria for Identifying “Emerging Technologies”
Earlier this month, BIS published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) in the 
Federal Register, which seeks public comment on criteria for identifying emerging technologies that are essential to U.S. national security. Comments are due on or before December 19, 2018.
The Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) authorizes Commerce to establish appropriate controls, including interim controls, on the export, reexport, or transfer (in country) of emerging and foundational technologies. Emerging and foundational technologies, in keeping with ECRA, will be determined by an interagency process that will consider both public and classified information as well as information from the Emerging Technology Technical Advisory Committee and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
In identifying emerging and foundational technologies, the process considers:
  – The development of emerging and foundational technologies in foreign countries;
  – The effect export controls may have on the development of such technologies in the United States; and
  – The effectiveness of export controls on limiting the proliferation of emerging and foundational technologies in foreign countries.
To help inform this process, this ANPRM proposes several general areas for public comment. Given the challenges involved in identifying emerging and foundational technologies, this ANPRM will help Commerce and other agencies propose specific emerging technologies for control.
The representative general categories of technology for which Commerce currently seeks to determine whether there are specific emerging technologies that are essential to the national security of the United States include:
Biotechnology, such as (nanobiology, synthetic biology, genomic and genetic engineering, or neurotech;
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology, such as Neural networks and deep learning (e.g., brain modelling, time series prediction, classification), evolution and genetic computation (e.g., genetic algorithms, genetic programming), reinforcement learning, computer vision (e.g., object recognition, image understanding), export systems (e.g., decision support systems, teaching systems), speech and audio processing (e.g., speech recognition and production), natural language processing 
(e.g., machine translation), planning (e.g., scheduling, game playing), audio and video manipulation technologies 
(e.g., voice cloning, deepfakes), AI cloud technologies, or AI chipsets;
Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) technology;
Microprocessor technology, such as systems-on-Chip (SoC) or Stacked Memory on Chip; 
Advanced computing technology, such as memory-centric logic; 
Data analytics technology, such as visualization, automated analysis algorithms or context-aware computing; 
Quantum information and sensing technology, such as quantum computing, quantum encryption, or quantum sensing; 
Logistics technology, such as mobile electric power, modeling and simulation, total asset visibility or Distribution-based Logistics Systems (DBLS); 
Additive manufacturing (e.g., 3D printing);
Robotics, such as micro-drone and micro-robotic systems, swarming technology, self-assembling robots, molecular robotics, robot compilers, or smart dust; 
Brain-computer interfaces, such as neural-controlled interfaces, mind-machine interfaces. direct neural interfaces, or brain-machine interfaces; 
Hypersonics, such as flight control algorithms, propulsion technologies, thermal protection systems, or specialized materials (for structures, sensors, etc.); 
Advanced Materials, such as adaptive camouflage, functional textiles 
(e.g., advanced fiber and fabric technology), or biomaterials; and
Advanced surveillance technologies, such as faceprint and voiceprint technologies.
Federal Register notice also included a list of comments that BIS welcomes:
  (1) How to define emerging technology to assist identification of such technology in the future;
  (2) Criteria to apply to determine whether there are specific technologies within these general categories that are important to U.S. national security;
  (3) Sources to identify such technologies;
  (4) Other general technology categories that warrant review to identify emerging technology that are important to U.S. national security; 
  (5) the status of development of these technologies in the United States and  other countries;
  (6) The impact specific emerging technology controls would have on U.S. technological leadership; and
  (7) Any other approaches to the issue of identifying emerging technologies important to U.S. national security, including the stage of development or maturity level of an emerging technology that would warrant consideration for export control.
We encourage all exporters to submit comments to BIS with additional information on how controls on these technologies would affect U.S. industry, even if the comments do not specifically address each of the requests from BIS above.
You may recall that in May 2015, BIS sought comments on the proposal to implement the Wassenaar Arrangement’s control on cybersecurity tools into the EAR. In part due to the concerns raised by the public comments, the U.S. proposed to the Wassenaar Arrangement to eliminate the controls on technology required for the development of “intrusion software.” A similar response by the U.S. industry on this proposal may help BIS draft a regulation that is more precise and with fewer unintended consequences.
Comments should be submitted to BIS by 
December 19, 2018. You may submit comments through either of the following:
  – Federal eRulemaking Portal: 
http://www.regulations.gov. The identification number for this rulemaking is BIS 2018-0024.
  – Address: By mail or delivery to Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce, Room 2099B, 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230. Refer to RIN 0694-AH61.
Additional information can be found in [the related] Federal Register notice.
OFAC Amends the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations
The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is amending the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (ITSR) to implement further the President’s May 8, 2018 decision to cease the United States’ participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by making changes to reflect the re-imposition of sanctions pursuant to certain sections of Executive Order 13846 and changes to certain sanctions lists maintained by OFAC. OFAC is also amending an existing general license in the ITSR to authorize U.S. persons to sell personal property in Iran and transfer the proceeds to the United States.
The authorizations provided under the JCPOA were announced earlier in the year. For example, OFAC revoked General License H, which authorized U.S.-owned or -controlled foreign entities to engage in certain activities involving Iran, and the wind down of activities involving Iran authorized pursuant to GL H had to be completed by November 4, 2018. This means that foreign subsidiaries of U.S. companies are no longer be able to rely on the authorizations under the general license once the wind down period has concluded.
OFAC’s actions this month reflects the changes announced by OFAC into the ITSR.
Changes to the Denied Party Lists
There were several changes this month to the denied party lists maintained by OFAC and the State Department. For example, the State Department published an update to its List of Restricted Entities and Subentities Associated with Cuba (Cuba Restricted List) with which direct financial transactions are generally prohibited under the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR). This Cuba Restricted List is also considered during review of license applications submitted to BIS. OFAC also amended several of its denied party lists, including the Specially Designated National and Blocked Persons List. …
