SIA Issues Statement on Export Control Rules
WASHINGTON—The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) released the following statement today from president and CEO John Neuffer in response to the modification of several items in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), including military end-use (MEU) and license exceptions for civil end-users (CIV) and additional permissive re-exports (APR). SIA represents 95 percent of the U.S. semiconductor industry.
“While we understand military-civil fusion trends demand smart and targeted national security responses, we are concerned these broad rules will unnecessarily expand export controls for semiconductors and create further uncertainty for our industry during this time of unprecedented global economic turmoil. We are reviewing the rules and urge the administration to implement them in a manner that both protects U.S. national security and advances American semiconductor leadership.”
