Background

The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order assessing a $37,000 civil penalty against a U.S. company to settle charges that it committed ten violations of the anti-boycott provisions of the Export Administration Regulations. If the company fails to pay the penalty in a timely manner the BIS may suspend its export privileges for one year.

In connection with shipments to Bahrain, the company was charged with knowingly agreeing to refuse to do business with another person pursuant to an agreement with, a requirement of, or a request from or on behalf of a boycotting country. In addition, in connection with shipments to Bangladesh, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Lebanon, the company failed to report its receipt of requests to take an action that would have the effect of furthering or supporting a restrictive trade practice or unsanctioned foreign boycott.
