The Export Administration Act (EAA) of 1979 (P.L. 96-72) provided legal authority to the President to control U.S. exports for reasons of national security, foreign policy, and/or short supply. The act was in force from 1979 to 1994, with a lapse in 1984–85. During this lapse, and upon the law's expiration, the authority of export regulations was continued by executive authority. Presidents Reagan and Clinton each declared that the expiration created an emergency under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and reauthorized all regulations on that basis. Subsequent Presidents extended the emergency each year by Presidential Notice, until the passing of the Export Controls Act of 2018 on 4 August 2018.
