BIS and Justice Department Announce Break Up of Iran-Related Procurement Network

The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the Justice Department announced today that 16 foreign-based individuals and corporations were indicted and 75 parties were added to the Entity List because of their involvement in a global procurement network that sought to acquire U.S.-origin dual-use and military components for the Iranian Government, and for their relationship to the Mayrow General Trading Company in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Mayrow General Trading Company was the first party included in General Order 3 to Part 736 of the EAR for its involvement in procuring IED materiel from the U.S.

The 16 defendants are charged with purchasing and causing the export of U.S. goods to Iran through middle countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, England, Germany and Singapore. Details of the various counts can be found in the Justice Department's press release.

According to BIS and Justice, today’s announcement is the result of a criminal investigation that was lead by the BIS Office of Export Enforcement field office in Miami, Florida of Iranian procurement front companies including Mayrow General Trading, that is spread across several countries, including the U.S.

Note: As of this writing the names of the 75 parties added to the Entity List have not been published.
