Export Privilege Denial Extended for Aircraft Exports to Iran
The Bureau of Industry and Security has renewed for a period of 180 days a temporary denial order suspending the export privileges of Iran-based Mahan Airways as well as 14 entities with addresses in France, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
This order was initially issued in connection with the illegal export of aircraft to Iran and prohibits all affected persons from receiving, using or transporting any item that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations and has been exported from the U.S. It also prohibits these entities from benefitting in any way from any transaction involving any item exported from the U.S. that is subject to the EAR or any other activity that is subject to the EAR. Moreover, no person may, directly or indirectly, export or reexport to or on behalf of any affected entity any item subject to the EAR or take any action that facilitates the acquisition or attempted acquisition by any such entity of the ownership, possession or control of any item that is subject to the EAR and has been exported from the U.S.
