The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for ten years the export privileges of a Texas man convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting to Mexico nearly 6,000 rounds of ammunition designated as defense articles on the U.S. Munitions List without the required State Department export license or authorization. The man was previously sentenced to 51 months’ imprisonment and a $100 assessment.

Under this order, until Aug. 11, 2025, 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.
