Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued separate orders suspending for 10 years the export privileges of two individuals convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting certain rifles to Mexico without the required license or written authorization. BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which these individuals had an interest at the time of their convictions.

As a result, until Dec. 13, 2021, and March 2, 2022, respectively, neither these individuals nor anyone on their 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. However, this order does not prohibit any export, reexport or other transaction subject to the EAR where the only items involved that are subject to the EAR are the foreign-produced direct product of U.S.-origin technology.
