# Other Considerations

## What is the DOE foreign person access requirement?

A recent regulatory change was made to DOE Order 142.3A (December 13, 2019). The clause may be in DOE agreements awarded after December 2019 as well older DOE agreements that are being amended by DOE to include this revision. The revised 142.3A requires prior approval of Foreign Nationals working on DOE projects (including U.S. Permanent Residents). Contact Export Control for assistance with navigating this process.

## What impact does export control have on emerging technologies?

The federal government is identifying emerging technologies essential to US national security and placing new or additional export controls on these technologies. Starting in 2019, the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published export controls on several emerging technologies.
