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 from England convicted for his role in shipping aircraft parts to Iran. According to BIS, this man knowingly and willfully agreed and conspired with others, known and unknown, to export and cause the exportation, sale and supply, indirectly, of aircraft parts from the United States to Iran without having first obtained the required licenses and authorizations from the Office of Foreign Assets Control. He also engaged in transactions within the U.S. to evade and avoid the prohibition against exporting, reexporting, selling and supplying, directly and indirectly, aircraft parts from the U.S. to Iran without having first obtained the required OFAC licenses and authorizations. This man was previously sentenced to 27 months of imprisonment, three years of supervised release and a $100 assessment.

As a result, until Dec. 16, 2023, neither this man 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.
