China Should Provide Clearer Definitions, Clarify Scope of Upcoming Export Controls, USCBC Says

China took a “few positive steps” to revise the draft of its export control law but should address several key areas of concern for US and Chinese companies, the US-China Business Council said in comments released this week. USCBC asked China to clarify the scope of its export controls and the term “national security,” provide a clearer definition for activities that are “deemed exports,” and consider more relaxed requirements for end-user statements and certificates.
