The Indian and the U.S. governments formed a High Technology Cooperation Group (HTCG) in November 2002 to facilitate and promote high technology bilateral trade.  The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) (formerly  known  as  the  Bureau  of  Export  Administration,  BXA)  is  the  American  government  agency responsible for implementing and enforcing the Export
Administration Regulations (EAR), which regulate the export and re-export of most commercial items. The BIS often refers to the items that they regulate as "dual-use" items, since these items have both commercial and military or proliferation applications, but purely commercial items without an obvious military use are also subject to the EAR.
