The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule that, effective July 19, added six entities in Russia to the Entity List on the basis of activities described in Executive Order 14024, which targets activities such as undermining free and fair elections in the U.S. and its allies, malicious cyber activities, using corruption to influence foreign governments, and undermining security in countries and regions important to U.S. national security.
For these entities BIS is imposing a license requirement for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of all items subject to the Export Administration Regulations, as well as a license review policy of presumption of denial. In addition, no license exceptions are available for such shipments to these entities.
Shipments of items removed from eligibility for a license exception or for export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) without a license (NLR) as a result of this rule that were en route aboard a carrier to a port of export, reexport, or transfer on July 19 pursuant to actual orders for export, reexport, or transfer to or within a foreign destination may proceed to that destination under the previous eligibility.
For more information on restrictions on exports to persons on the Entity List or other lists, please contact Kristine Pirnia at (202) 730-4964 or via email.
