The Department of Commerce (DOC) foreign access management program is designed to enable the broadest cooperation and collaboration with international partners while ensuring compliance with all applicable United States (U.S.) laws and regulations through consistent and effective management of access by Foreign Nationals to DOC facilities, resources and activities which are not available to the public. The DOC must balance this openness with the necessity to protect classified, Controlled Unclassified Information or otherwise controlled, proprietary, or not-for-public release data, information or technology consistent with U.S. laws and regulations. To facilitate compliance, the Foreign National Request Form A, is developed for use by DOC bureaus, staff offices and operating units to mitigate variance in foreign access management program implementation and information collection needed to achieve risk-based determinations of physical and logical access by Foreign National visitors and guests to DOC facilities and information resources.
The latest form for Foreign National Request Form A expires 2022-06-30 and can be found here.
