The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security employed a series of updates to the Commerce Control List (CCL) as part of a systematic effort to update and refine the U.S. dual-use export control system. The CCL helps determine what U.S. goods and services require a Commerce Department export license to be shipped overseas.

There will still be many security items not on the Commerce Control List, which can be legitimately sold to China.

And that country is gearing up to the biggest exhibit ever in the world that also includes security technologies.

The 2010 World Expo in Shanghai will involve security on a grander scale and a higher technical level than ever before, according to the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) Shanghai 2010 World Expo Report. As a result, planned investment for security is ten times greater than the previous two world expos.
