foreign policy controls

(U.S.) U.S. export controls that are distinct from national security controls (such as the Coordinating Committee in Multilateral Export Controls or other international agreements) and are imposed to further U.S. foreign policy. The controls are typically imposed in response to developments in a country or countries–such as considerations regarding terrorism and human rights–or to developments involving a type or types of commodities and their related technical data. Foreign policy controls expire annually, unless extended.
