About U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security

The mission of the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is to advance U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economic objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system and promoting continued U.S. strategic technology leadership.  BIS controls the export of items (i.e., commodities, software, and technology) that can be used to develop or enhance: conventional weapons; weapons of mass destruction (nuclear, chemical and biological) or the missiles used to deliver those weapons; less sensitive military items; and items that can be used to abuse human rights.  BIS implements the Export Administration Regulations to ensure that such exports are prevented or approved only to reliable foreign end users who have been thoroughly evaluated in a comprehensive interagency process by a highly trained cadre of analysts.
