The advanced computing and semiconductor manufacturing equipment (advanced computing) rule addresses U.S. national security and foreign policy concerns in two key areas. First, the rule imposes restrictive export controls on certain advanced computing semiconductor chips, transactions for supercomputer end-uses, and transactions involving certain entities on the Entity List. Second, the rule imposes new controls on certain semiconductor manufacturing items and on transactions for semiconductor development and production end uses. The advanced computing rule was published as an interim final rule with a request for comments. This means that the advanced computing rule went into effect on the dates indicated, but that the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) will continue to accept public comments on the rule and, after reviewing those comments, will publish a final rule that will respond to the comments at a future date.
