BIS Imposes Civil Penalties on Danish Company and Its Affiliates

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced today that Reson A/S of Slangerup, Denmark, agreed to pay a civil penalty of $119,250 to settle allegations that it committed 29 violations of the Export Administration Regulations ($4,112 per violation).

In addition, BIS settled enforcement cases brought against Reson A/S' subsidiaries including Reson, Incorporated of Goleta, California ($83,000), Reson Offshore Limited of Aberdeen, Scotland ($9,900), and a former subsidiary of RAS, Underwater Surveys of Cape Town, South Africa ($29,700) for their respective roles in the violations (the information released to date does not indicate how many violations were alleged).

Reson Incorporated also settled allegations concerning two deemed export violations, involving foreign nationals from France and the United Kingdom.

The allegations primarily involved unlicensed exports and reexports of underwater navigation equipment to destinations in South Africa, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, Mozambique, Taiwan, Russia, and India between June 2002 and September 2006. The items exported and reexported are controlled by the U.S. for national security (NS) reasons.

According to BIS, RAS voluntary self-disclosed the violations and cooperated fully in the investigation.
