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 and willfully attempting to export AR-15/M-16 firearm barrels, receivers, components, parts and accessories to Honduras without a State Department license or written approval. As a result, until Dec. 17, 2022, 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.

BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which this man had an interest at the time of his conviction. The man has previously been sentenced to 37 months of imprisonment, two years of supervised release and a $200 assessment. He is also listed on the State Department’s Debarred List.
