U.S. - India Partnership On Export Controls and Non-Proliferation (Nov. 8, 2010) is worth while reading for export compliance managers. Although this is only direction and not yet in legal implementation, need to understand this policy change.
In summary, it describes as:
1. The US will support India's full membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group, the Missile Technology Control Regime, the Australia Group, and the Wassenaar Arrangement over time.
2. The US will remove some India entities from the "Entity List"
3. The US will "realign" India in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), giving India treatment similar to close allies and partners such as the UK and Canada.
4. BIS will take India out of Country Group D in the EAR, which will significantly narrow, but not eliminate, the US catch-all control prohibiting exports and reexports to missile activities in India.
5. India and the US will expand dialogue on export control issues though the US-India Technology Cooperation Group on topics such as capacity building, best practices sharing and outreach within industry.
By calling to India, "Hey, come to our side, please", this would be effective containment policy toward PRC China, and encourage export of US to emerging market in Asia.
