export controlled information eci
Export Controlled Information (ECI)

Export Controlled Information (ECI) - Technical information whose export requires a license

  • ECI should be protected if uncontrolled dissemination would adversely affect U.S. national security or nonproliferation objectives
  • DOE policy on dissemination of ECI must balance commitments to:
    • U.S. nonproliferation and national security goals
    • Scientific and technological advance
    • Benefit to U.S. industry
    • Benefit to U.S. taxpayer
    • Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requirements
export controlled information eci13
Export Controlled Information (ECI)

ECI (continued):

DOE reviews technical documents to identify ECI whose release must be controlled

ECI review may require::

  • For publications:
    • Edit sensitive data
    • Limit distribution
  • For presentations:
    • Edit sensitive data
    • Limit audience
export controlled information eci14
Export Controlled Information (ECI)

ECI (continued):

NA-242 initiatives to control release of ECI under FOIA:

  • Proposed legislation similar to DOD’s enacted in 1984
  • DOE would gain authority to withhold ECI
  • But even now DOE may require FOIA requestor of ECI to disclose citizenship and, if foreign, to obtain export license
  • And if FOIA requester is U.S. citizen, DOE should advise of export licensing requirements for ECI transfer out of the country
technology transfer control
Technology Transfer Control


  • To identify materials, equipment, and technology of proliferation concern
  • To prevent transfers to proliferants
  • To protect against inadvertent transfers
  • To weigh proliferation and security concerns against value of scholarship, technology advance, and economic benefit
  • To implement U.S. Government policy on transfers
technology transfer control16
Technology Transfer Control

Mechanisms of Transfer:

  • Sales, donations, loans, leases, exports
  • Technical exchanges and communications
  • Work-for-others, Cooperative Agreements, patent assignments
  • Publications and presentations
  • Visits and assignments to DOE sites
  • Foreign travel by DOE personnel
technology transfer control17
Technology Transfer Control

Transfer Control Principle:

  • Whatever the transfer mechanism, export control review is a must

Control Measures:

  • Export control review of all proposed transfers, exchanges, publications, presentations, visits and assignments, and foreign travel
  • Export control requirements placed in all transfer agreements
  • DOE/NNSA approval required for retransfers
technology transfer control18
Technology Transfer Control

Tools for Export Control Review:

  • Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) lists – Trigger and Dual-Use
  • Export control regulations – Departments of Energy, Commerce, and State, and Nuclear Regulatory Commission
    • Guidelines on Export Control and Nonproliferation
    • Sensitive Countries List
    • Sensitive Subjects List
    • Technology experts and export control personnel
surplus property
Surplus Property

Transfer of Surplus Property:

  • Equipment and materials must be made useless for nuclear purposes
  • Transfer agreement must include strict nonproliferation conditions
  • There is a presumption of destruction for NSG Trigger list items and for weapons components
  • For items deemed too valuable to destroy:
    • Request exception from DOE/NNSA Deputy Administrator for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation
    • May require modifying equipment to render it useless for nuclear purposes
    • Must get DOE/NNSA approval for retransfer or export

Industry Export Control

Dual-Use Export Licensing:

  • Export Administration Act of 1979 gives Commerce the lead
  • Export Administration Regulations (EAR) implement
  • EAR sections of note:
    • 15 CFR Part 738, Special country policies
    • 15 CFR Part 742, Control Policy – CCL-based controls
    • 15 CFR Part 744, Control Policy – Catch-all controls based on end-user and end-use
    • 15 CFR Part 752, Special Comprehensive Licenses
    • 15 CFR Part 774, Commerce Control List (includes Nuclear Referral List of items requiring DOE/NNSA review)

Industry Export Control

Munitions Licensing:
