Open source occasionally gets tangled up in geopolitics, such as prohibitions from exporting technology. Many Open Source projects have suitable models for disclosing an export code classification number (ECCN). Many projects also routinely disclose source code to the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). But many projects don't know the influence this can have, nor know how to classify, or what the different export control mechanisms and classifications are.

In this talk, Karan Marjara (Fujitsu) and Jonas Öberg (Scania), will talk about the current state of export control and their work in both companies to classify open source components accurately. They will give examples of the kind of questions developers need to answer in order to classify an open source component. They will discuss and invite to a working group to look at how this can be included in source code repositories to be computer readable, and how businesses can work together to support in this.
