Friday, September 06, 2013
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule that, effective Sept. 6, adds Intel Semiconductor (Dalian) Ltd. to the list of validated end-users. As a result, exports, reexports and transfers (in-country) of specified items to two Intel Dalian facilities are now authorized under authorization VEU. This rule also changes the name of an existing VEU in China from Lam Research Corporation to Lam Research Service Co. Ltd.

Authorization VEU is a mechanism to facilitate increased high-technology exports to companies in China and India that have a verifiable record of civilian end-uses for such items. End-users qualified as VEUs are eligible to receive a wide range of specified items on the Commerce Control List under this authorization instead of under individual transaction-specific export licenses. Eligible items may include commodities, software and technology, except those controlled for missile technology or crime control reasons.
