The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has been established to provide US Government oversight into direct investment by foreign entities into US businesses. The Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) and Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (both signed into law as part of the FY19 National Defense Authorization Act), along with pending regulations being promulgated under these statutes, have the potential to significantly expand that oversight & control of the transfer of key technologies. This presentation will aid the audience in understanding the relevant investment and export control laws, current changes being implemented with respect to “emerging and foundational technologies” and critical technologies, and the potential impact on international licensing.
- Background of current foreign investment regulations (CFIUS)
- New changes to Export Control and CFIUS regulations
- Special oversight for a specific list of US "emerging and foundational technologies"
- Potent impact on international licensing and technology transfer
