Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) USA – Revised Temporary General License

  1. After the change of the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) revised temporary general license NGMN is exempted from the final rule. Until further notice, the situation should be considered as “business as usual” during all the meetings called by NGMN.
  2. NGMN believes that unclassified technology and software disclosed pursuant to its activities are generally not subject to the EAR, as such technology and software is “published” and made available to the public without restrictions on its further dissemination through distribution at NGMN meetings generally accessible to the interested public and through public dissemination on the NGMN public website (i.e. unlimited distribution).
  3. Under EAR section 734.7, unclassified “technology” or “software” is “published,” and is thus not subject to the EAR, when it has been made available to the public without restrictions upon its further dissemination, such as through unlimited distribution at a meeting generally accessible to the public or through public dissemination (i.e. unlimited distribution) in any form.
  4. NGMN’s activity is the production of requirements for 5G.  Any legal entity having interest in the development of 5G requirements can become a partner of NGMN. All contributions made by NGMN Partners are accessible on a partner server and/or are disseminated through newsletters to the NGMN partners and the general public.
  5. All work done by Partners in the different working groups of NGMN and resulting in technical specifications and/or requirements that are published, is publicly available and accessible for free without any kind of restrictions.
  6. Contributions, meetings, exchanges, discussions, or any form of other communication in or outside the NGMN meetings are of the accountability, integrity, and the responsibility of each NGMN Partner.  In addition, Partners remain responsible for ensuring that none of their technical contributions include controlled software or technology or other information that is subject to US and/or non-US export control regulations.
  7. Individual Partners with questions regarding the impact of laws and regulations on their participation in NGMN should contact their companies’ legal counsels.
