Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for ten years the export privileges of a man currently incarcerated in Pennsylvania after being convicted of knowingly, intentionally and willfully attempting to export spools of certain carbon fiber to China without the required Commerce Department license. As a result, until May 27, 2024, neither this individual nor anyone on his behalf may directly or indirectly participate in any way in any transaction involving any commodity, software or technology exported or to be exported from the U.S. that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations. BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which this man had an interest at the time of his conviction.
