On August 16, 2017, the Federal Register published Presidential Notice of August 15, 2017, Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Export Control Regulations. The notice continues for an additional year the national emergency declared in Executive Order (EO) 13222 of August 17, 2001, as amended by EO 13637 of March 8, 2013. The President issued EO 13222 pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States related to the expiration of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. 4601 et seq.). Because the Congress has not renewed the Export Administration Act, the national emergency declared on August 17, 2001, as amended by EO 13222, must continue in effect beyond August 17, 2017.
