  4. DTAG Tasking Review the various U.S. Government definitions of ‘fundamental research’ in use and recommend a harmonized definition that can be used in both the ITAR and the EAR.

  5. Methodology

  6. ITAR 120.11 EAR 734.8 FAR 272.3 OMB Circular A-110 OMB Circular A-133 Definitions FDA 21 CFR 50.3(c) DOD 32 CFR 272.3 DHHS 45 CFR 74.2 DOE 10 CFR 1017.11(b) DHHS 45 CFR 46.102 Various Dictionaries National Institute of Health Case Law & Law Reviews NSDD - 189 DARPA

  7. History • 1919: Restriction of First Amendment free speech for national security reasons • 1970’s: Export control regulations enacted, constitutionality questioned • 1980’s: • 1982: OSTP: cost/benefit analysis • 1985: National security classification should be the mechanism to restrict (NSDD-189) • 1993: 120.11 now includes a definition of fundamental research consistent with NSDD-189 (53 FR 39280) • 2000’s: OIG/deemed export concerns, reiteration of NSDD-189 in memos, attention to input v. conduct v. results

  8. Assumptions • Proposed definition of “Defense services” or similar variant will become a final rule. (April 13, 2011; 76 Federal Register 20592) • Proposed revisions to 22 CFR 124.1(a) will be implemented. (April 13, 2011; 76 Federal Register 20591)

  9. Proposed Harmonized Definition § 120.11 Public Domain (a) Public Domain means… (8) Through fundamental research as defined in §120.XX. § 120.XX Basic Research Basic research is a systemic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts. § 120.XX Applied Research Applied research is a systematic study to gain knowledge or understanding necessary to determine the means by which a recognized and specific need may be met. It is a systematic application of knowledge toward the creation of useful materials, devices, and systems or methods, including design, development and improvement of prototypes and new processes to meet specific requirements.

  10. Proposed Harmonized Definition • § 120.XX Fundamental Research • Fundamental research is basic and applied research the results of which may be disseminated withoutrestriction (see “Research Restrictions” in § 120.XX of this subchapter) [or] (See EAR § [new section of the EAR]and, accordingly, such research is not subject to U.S. export controls. • Fundamental research is not limited to performance at accredited U.S. institutions of higher learning and may be conducted by other persons (see 120.14). • The information resulting from fundamental research shall remain unrestricted to the maximum extent possible and; where national security requires control, the mechanism for control of information generated during federally-funded fundamental research in science, technology and engineering at colleges, universities and laboratories is national security classification.

  11. Proposed Harmonized Definition • § 120.XX Research Restrictions • Research is restricted if: • (1) The research is funded by the U.S. Government and includes specific access and dissemination controls to protect information resulting from the research; or • (2)Dissemination of the information resulting from the research is restricted or not published for proprietary reasons, (with the exception of prepublication editorial review to ensure proprietary information is not released or patent rights compromised). • Our task was to harmonize: both regulations consider proprietary research to be restricted, therefore we included (ii). • However, DTAG proposes deleting this language. Whether research is proprietary or not is irrelevant in making an export control determination.

  12. Proposed Harmonized Definition • (b) The following prepublication reviews are not research restrictions: • Reviews to ensure that information subject to specific access or dissemination controls (such as Controlled Unclassified or Sensitive But Unclassified Information) is not released, when such information is provided by the U.S. Government for research; • Reviews to ensure compliance with statutory or funding agency requirements other than export controls; • Reviews to ensure that publication would not inadvertently divulge trade secret information furnished by the sponsor; or • Reviews to ensure that publication would not compromise patent rights.

  13. Proposed Harmonized Guidance • Guidance to Academia and Industry • Update and Harmonize current Commerce and State FAQs (slide 20) • Guidance to Funding Government Agencies & Other Funding Entities • Reminder that Commerce and State have jurisdiction • Need clear and harmonized guidance to funding agencies that classification is the mechanism for control and that contractual restrictions should only be included when they are strictly necessary and directly related to national security concerns

  14. EAR/ITAR Analysis • Definitions are similar; harmonious with NSDD 189, national FR policy • Both include: • basic and applied research • results ordinarily published/publicly available • distinguishable from other research results with proprietary or national security restrictions • Differences: • EAR - 15 sections; several performance locations • ITAR - 3 sections; U.S. as the locus; specific to institutions of higher learning • DTAG explored: • Aspects of FR: Input, Conduct and Output (slide 16) • Complex stakeholder perspectives

  17. Perspectives

  18. Survey

  19. Considerations • Proposed harmonized “fundamental research” definition should consider: • Character of research; • Existence of national security classifications; • Existence of specific access and dissemination restrictions; • Physical location of performance is inconsequential; • Fundamental research is performed by various entities; • Distinction between research input, conduct and output; • Color of money used to fund the research (e.g., 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, etc.) is not determinative of FR application; • When fundamental research stops being fundamental and becomes subject to export controls. • [Not proprietary]

  20. Steps To Harmonize • Define basic, applied, fundamental research and research restrictions in §772.1 of the EAR and in new sections of the ITAR (Sections (120.XX) • Modify EAR (e.g. §734.8 and 734.11) and ITAR (e.g., §120.11 and §120.XX) to adopt DTAG proposed harmonized definition • Clarify and consolidate Supplemental Guidance in the EAR in Supplement No. 1 to Part 734 • Create Fundamental Research Guidance for the ITAR in “Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in Defense Trade” • Clarify what is defense service vs. fundamental research • Other sections might be impacted by the DTAG proposed definition of “fundamental research” so perform final review before implementing

  21. Additional ITAR Changes • Section 123.16(b)(10): temporary export and return exemption not be limited to “accredited U.S. institutions of higher learning” • 125.4(c)(3): delete definition of “basic” and “applied” and refer to proposed DTAG definitions • 125.4(d): delete “accredited U.S. institutions of higher learning” throughout this section, except 125.4(b)(10) • USML Category VIII(f): clarify application of “fundamental research” under U.S. Department of Defense contracts

  22. Summary • DTAG proposes clear definitions of Fundamental Research, Basic Research, Applied Research and Restricted Research which will work well together in both the EAR and the ITAR • DTAG assumes proposed changes to Defense Service and Technical Data will be implemented which will further clarify application of Fundamental Research • DTAG proposal: • Preserves access and dissemination restrictions [and proprietary information] as distinguishing characteristics of unclassified research • Clarifies that in absence of restrictions/[proprietary information], research is fundamental • Provides a “bright-line” for clarity and consistency of implementation and enforcement

  30. Aspects of FR The definition clarifies that (1) the inclusion of defense articles in the conduct of research does not preclude the outcomes of the research from potentially qualifying as FR (2) that industry can now handle their research the same as academia. Same measuring stick applied to all entities

  33. History • 1978 DOJ Office of General Counsel legal opinion: certain applications of the ITAR are unconstitutional impositions on the dissemination of scientific ideas. • 1978, U.S. v. Edler: violations of ITAR technical data licensing scheme punishable only when the violator is knowing and intentional. • 1982, Richard DeLauer: no restriction can be placed on conduct or reporting of research that has not received national security classification. • 1982, OSTP studies benefits of USG restrictions on unclassified scientific research against costs of impeding scientific and technical progress, resulting in NSDD-189. • 1985, NSDD-189: where national security requires control, the mechanism ought to be classification. • 1993, 58 FR 39280 July 22 • 2010, Ashton Carter: products of fundamental research are to remain unrestricted to the maximum extent possible, when control is necessary for national security reasons, classification is the only appropriate mechanism.
