Exports of EAR-Regulated Goods Restricted to 21 Entities
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule that, effective Feb. 16, adds 19 entities in Russia, one in Georgia, and one in Poland to the Entity List, which lists entities restricted from receiving U.S. exports of goods controlled under the Export Administration Regulations. BIS is adding these entities for violating international law and fueling the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
For these 21 entities there is a license requirement for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of all items subject to the EAR and a license review policy of presumption of denial. The license requirement applies to any transaction in which items are to be exported, reexported, or transferred (in-country) to any of these entities or in which they act as purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or end-user. In addition, no license exceptions are available for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) to these entities.
