1 min read

The Commerce Department said “We have some limits on the most sensitive and high-tech semiconductors, and the tools that would make those semiconductors, so that they can be exported to China.”

In an effort to strengthen national security, the US Commerce Department’s office in charge of export controls is reviewing its policies to limit sales of chipmaking technology to China.

Alan Estevez, deputy secretary for industry and security at the Commerce Department, said “We have some limits on the most sensitive and high-tech semiconductors, and the tools that would make those semiconductors, so that they can be exported to China,” “I’m doing a full review of those policies within the BIS at this time,” he said, referring to the name of his agency.

Speaking at a Senate Banking Committee hearing Thursday, Estévez did not specify whether the review would lean toward tightening or relaxing US controls on what can be sold in China. Published by The USA Herald, news and information agency.
