The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for five years the export privileges of a Texas man convicted of knowingly and willfully attempting to export from the U.S. a defense article on the U.S. Munitions List without having first obtained a license from the Department of State or written prior authorization for such export. The man was previously sentenced to 37 months’ imprisonment and a $300 assessment.

Under this order, until Dec. 15, 2020, 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.
