This CLE webinar will guide counsel to companies on the new restrictions on certain advanced computing and semiconductor manufacturing items destined for the People's Republic of China (PRC). The panel will address the new rules imposing new controls on the export, reexport, and retransfer to and within China of certain computer-related items. The panel will discuss the compliance challenges of the new rules and offer best practices for navigating the new rules and ensuring compliance.

Description

In October, the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued new rules aimed at restricting the PRC's ability to buy and manufacture advanced computing chips, develop and maintain supercomputers, and manufacture advanced semiconductors.

BIS' rule imposes export controls on certain advanced computing semiconductor chips, transactions for supercomputer end-uses, and transactions involving certain entities on the Entity List. It also implements new controls on certain semiconductor manufacturing items and on transactions for certain integrated circuit end uses.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the new rules imposing new controls on the export, reexport, and retransfer to and within the PRC of certain computer-related items. The panel will discuss the compliance challenges of the new rules and offer best practices for navigating the new rules and ensuring compliance.
