China to Further Strengthen the Administration of Technology Exports

The Ministry of Commerce, together with the Ministry of Science and Technology, released the amended Administrative Measures on Prohibited and Restricted Export of Technologies (the "Amended Measures") on April 20, 2009.  According to the Amended Measures, any restricted technology export is subject to approval by the local administration of commerce, and such approval is valid for three years.  Upon receiving such approval, the exporting party is required to enter into an exporting agreement with the applicable purchaser, and file such agreement with the same approval authority within the applicable three-year period to apply for final approval and a certificate.  Such final approval and certificate are required for customs clearance of the exported technology.
