The Bureau of Industry And Security has issued an order suspending for ten years the export privileges of a man convicted of knowingly and willfully attempting to export AR-15/M-16 firearm barrels, receivers, components, parts and accessories from the U.S. to Honduras without having first obtained a license or written approval from the Department of State. As a result, until March 21, 2022, 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. The man is currently serving a 63-month sentence in prison, was fined a $100 assessment and is listed on the State Department’s Debarred List.
