The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for seven years the export privileges of a man convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting controlled firearms accessories to Russia without obtaining an export license. This man was previously sentenced to 51 months’ imprisonment, three years of supervised release and a $100 assessment.  

As a result, until March 5, 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.
