Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on exports of dual-use, nuclear-related equipment to the People's Republic of China.

Dual-use, nuclear-related items are equipment which is used in both conventional and nuclear applications. The Department of Commerce regulates the export of such items. GAO found that, from July 1981 through June 1982, Commerce approved 1,080 licenses to export dual-use items to China. This was over 10 percent of the total number of export licenses for dual-use items issued during that period. About 80 percent of the dual-use items licensed for export to China were computers and related equipment. Other licensed items included test equipment, pressure measuring equipment, communications equipment, and laser systems.
