BIS Adds 15 Parties and Makes Other Changes to Entity List

Today the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule in the Federal Register (pdf) adding 15 parties to the Entity List and making a number of changes to other entries as a result of the agency's annual review of the Entity List.

The Entity List includes the names of businesses, research institutions, government organizations and individuals that have been identified as being involved in activities that merit additional scrutiny and can trigger licensing requirements, even for items that may not otherwise require an export license.

The 15 parties added to the Entity List included a number of individuals, companies and airlines located in Cyprus, Greece, Iran, Syria, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.  These parties were added to the Entity List for violating U.S. restrictions involving exports to Syria and Iran. As a result of being added to the Entity List, a license will be required to export any item subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to any of the 15 parties and license exceptions are not available for transactions involving these parties. In addition, there will be a presumption of denial of any license application submitted involving any of these parties.

The changes to the Entity List also included modifying a number of current entries involving entities located in Syria and China.

For further information on the importance of checking the Entity List, see our previous post entitled "Failing to Check Entity List can be Costly."
