On March 25, 2010, the Bureau of Industry and Security ("BIS") created three new Export Control Classification Numbers ("ECCNs") to control security equipment using specified types of millimeter wave technology, including related software and technology, for regional stability and anti-terrorist reasons. New ECCN 2A984 has been added to the Commerce Control List to control concealed object detection equipment operating in the frequency range from 30 GHz to 3000 GHz and having a spatial resolution of 0.5 milliradian up to and including 1 milliradian at a standoff distance of 100 meters. A Technical Note to the new ECCN indicates that the range of frequencies covered is what is generally referred to as the millimeter-wave, submillimeter-wave and terahertz frequency regions.
