Export Privileges Suspended for Unlicensed Rifle Exports to Mexico
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for 10 years the export privileges of three men convicted of exporting several AK-47 type rifles and magazines to Mexico without the required State Department license or authorization. BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which these individuals had an interest at the time of their convictions.
As a result, neither these individual 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.
