Appendix C Charge to the Committee

DUAL-USE TECHNOLOGIES, EXPORT CONTROLS, AND MATERIALS CONTROL AND ACCOUNTABILITY EXTRACTED FROM DNA-NRC CONTRACT (DNA001-94-C-0182), MAY 9,1995

  • (a)  

    An NAS committee of volunteer experts shall evaluate the CTR Program's impact on export controls and regulation of dual-use technologies in Russia, Belarus, Kazakstan, and Ukraine. Particular emphasis will be given to the extent to which these controls and regulations are approaching a level compatible with western standards and those of COCOM successor regimes.

  • (b)  

    The committee shall gather information required for the evaluation from DOD staff members responsible for promotion of improved export control and MC&A in the CIS. Information will also be obtained during trips to the four countries listed above. During these visits, the committee will meet with government officials who have been the focus of CTR export control efforts to date and will also make visits to selected facilities to assess implementation of the improved measures.

  • (c)  

    The final report will assess the effectiveness of CTR assistance, problems in CTR assistance programs, and outstanding needs in these areas in recipient states. It will also recommend actions to the U.S. Government for future assistance programs in these areas.
