Syria-Related Provisions in Export Regulations Reorganized
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule that, effective Dec. 12, reorganizes certain Syria-related provisions of the Export Administration Regulations in an effort to facilitate compliance with the comprehensive sanctions on that country. This rule moves the Syria provisions from General Order No. 2 in Supplement No. 1 to Part 736 to the EAR section addressing embargoes and special controls (section 746.9). BIS notes that all controls pertaining to Syria remain in place and no new controls have been added.
