The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule that, effective April 29, introduces a new license exception MED authorizing certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of the following items that are designated as EAR99 to Russia, Belarus, the temporarily occupied Crimea region of Ukraine, and covered regions of Ukraine: low-level medical devices and related low-level parts, components, accessories, and attachments that are exclusively for use in or with medical devices.

According to BIS, this license exception includes terms and conditions to ensure that it may be used only by those shipments that are being regularly approved under existing licensing application review policies and that advance U.S. national security and foreign policy interests. BIS anticipates that the exception will thus aid both U.S. exporters, whose regulatory burden will be reduced, and BIS, which will continue to focus on restricting shipments of items that could aid Russia in its war against Ukraine.

For more information on this license exception and how to use it, please contact attorney Kristine Pirnia (at (202) 730-4964 or via email.
