Export Administration Review Board

An organization that hears and resolves disputes on American trade licensing. That is, if two or more cabinet departments disagree on whether or not to grant a company an export license, the EARB has the final decision. The Departments of Commerce, Defense, Energy, State and the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency are all voting members, while the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA are nonvoting members. It was established in 1970.

With the services of the EARBS in place, more people will be able to directly participate through interactive media sessions in establishing a people's federation whose birth, model and future will be determined by the people themselves.
EARBS is an institution that should be urgently created to help in the creation of such spaces.
