The China Technology Transfer Control Act of 2019 aims to limit export of technology and intellectual property (IP) to China. Individuals and firms will need a waiver to provide Chinese firms or nationals with technology.

The bill includes three main provisions: to control the export of US technology covered by the bill, to restrict exchanges of infringing products within the US, and to set forth a list of Chinese products that could threaten the US economy or be used to carry out human rights violations.
