BIS Posts Additional Information on India VEU Program and is Close to Announcing Names of China VEUs

As a follow-up to yesterday's announcement of the Validated End-User (VEU) Program for India, the Bureau of Industry and Security has posted additional information regarding the program on its website. The information includes the text of the rule, a fact sheet, the press release from the Secretary of Commerce and guidance for submitting to companies on submitting an advisory opinion request to be considered a VEU.

On a separate, but related note, a Commerce Department official today said that the first group of Chinese companies to be approved under the VEU Program will be announced and published in the Federal Register in the next few weeks. While BIS is currently taking more than the 30 calendar days to make VEU determinations, Supplement No. 9 to Part 748 of the EAR makes clear that the 30-day period applies to decisions made by the End-User Review Committee (ERC) after the final application is received and that the period during which the ERC is waiting for additional information from an applicant or potential validated end-user is not included in calculating the 30 calendar day deadline for the ERC's determination.
