Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for ten years all export privileges for a California man convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting to Mexico caliber rifles, defense articles that were on the U.S. Munitions List, without having first obtained the required license or written authorization from the Department of State. BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which this man had an interest at the time of his conviction. This man has already served a prison sentence and been listed on State’s Debarred List.

As a result, until Sept. 11, 2023, 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.
