Freight Forwarder Settles Charges of Aiding and Abetting Unlicensed Exports to Organizations Listed on Entity List

In yet another export enforcement case involving a freight forwarder, the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) today announced that Air Tiger Express, a freight forwarder located in El Segundo, California, agreed to pay a $49,500 civil penalty to settle charges that it violated the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). BIS charged that, on nine occasions in 1998 and 1999, Air Tiger Express aided and abetted the unlicensed export of items subject to the EAR to organizations in India that were on the Entity List (Supplement 4 to the Part 744 of the EAR).

The Entity List, which can be found at, is a compilation of end-users that have been determined to present an unacceptable risk of diversion to the development of weapons of mass destruction or their means of delivery. Exports to end-users appearing on the Entity List require licenses from the Department of Commerce. The export of an item to a Listed Entity without the proper license approval is a violation of the EAR and is subject to criminal penalties and administrative sanctions.
