Technical Advisory Committees (TAC)

 

What is the President's Export Council Subcommittee on Export Administration (PECSEA)?

The PECSEA advises on matters pertinent to the Export Administration Act, the Export Administration Regulations and related statutes and regulations, principally on United States policies of encouraging trade with all countries with which the United States has diplomatic or trading relations and of controlling trade for national security, foreign policy, and short supply reasons.

What are Technical Advisory Committees?

Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) advise the Department of Commerce on the technical parameters for export controls applicable to dual-use commodities and technology and on the administration of those controls. The TACs are composed of representatives from industry and Government representing diverse points of view on the concerns of the exporting community. Industry representatives are selected from firms producing a broad range of goods, technologies, and software presently controlled for national security, foreign policy, nonproliferation, and short supply reasons or that are proposed for such controls, balanced to the extent possible among large and small firms.

TAC members are appointed by the Secretary of Commerce and serve terms of not more than four consecutive years. The membership reflects the Department's commitment to attaining balance and diversity. TAC members must obtain secret-level clearances prior to appointment. These clearances are necessary so that members can be permitted access to relevant classified information needed in formulating recommendations to the Department of Commerce. Each TAC meets approximately four times per year. Members of the TACs are not compensated for their services.
