Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for ten years the export privileges of a man convicted of knowingly, intentionally, and willfully exporting night vision and thermal imaging equipment designated as defense articles on the U.S. Munitions List to Ukraine without the required State Department license. This man was previously sentenced to a criminal forfeiture of $2,500, two years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.

As a result, until Jan. 11, 2028, 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.
