Government Shutdown

News & Blog

Due to the ongoing partial government shutdown, the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is no longer accepting license applications, classification requests (CCATS), encryption reviews, encryption registrations, or advisory opinion requests and will also not be issuing any final determinations on licenses already in process. If you have a license that is critical for national security or for humanitarian aid, we are able to assist with submitting those licenses through the response team. Please note that once BIS resumes review activities, there will be a backlog that may significantly delay response time.  We will provide an update as soon as the Commerce and State Department resume license review activities.
