National Security Controls

Restrictions on the export or re-export of goods from the United States. In general, the U.S. (like most countries) promotes its own exports, but national security controls may be implemented on certain goods whose export is deemed not to be in the interests of the U.S. Nuclear materials, for example, have some national security controls placed on them. The president has the authority to issue or rescind national security controls.
