The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule removing one item (ECCN 4D002, which is no longer listed on the Commerce Control List) from the list of those that may be exported, reexported or transferred (in country) to Advanced Micro Devices Inc. in China under authorization validated end-user. This rule also removes an existing facility from the list of eligible AMD destinations and adds a building to an existing address at one of AMD’s already approved facilities.
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 general 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.
