They said that export policy is decided solely by agencies concerned with national security, without input from agencies concerned with encouraging commerce. Those agencies concerned with national security are doing everything possible to make sure this doesn’t change, but eventually it has to. 25.15 Foreign Import and Export of Cryptography
Other countries have their own import and export rules . This summary is incomplete and probably out of date. Countries could have rules and ignore them, or could have no rules but restrict import, export, and use anyway. — Australia requires an import certificate for cryptography only upon request from the exporting country. — Canada has no import controls, and export controls are similar to those of the United States. The exportation of items from Canada may be subject to restriction if they are included on the Export Control List pursuant to the Export and Import Permits Act. Canada follows the CoCom regulations in the regulation of cryptographic technology. Encryption devices are outlined in category five, part two of Canada’s export regulations. These provisions are similar to U.S. category five in the Export Administration Regulations. — China has a licensing scheme for importing commodities; exporters must file an application with the Ministry of Foreign Trade. Based on China’s List of Prohibited and Restricted Imports and Exports enacted in 1987, China restricts the import and export of voice-encoding devices. — France has no special rules for the import of...
