The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule that, effective Nov. 2, adds 12 entities in Russia and one in Uzbekistan to the Entity List. These entities are being added for supporting Russia’s military through the procurement, development, and proliferation of Russian unmanned aerial vehicles.

For all of these entities BIS is imposing a license requirement for exports of all items subject to the Export Administration Regulations and a license application review policy of denial. These entities are also being designated as Russian or Belarusian military end-users.

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 Nov. 2 pursuant to actual orders for export, reexport, or transfer to or within a foreign destination may proceed to that destination under the previous eligibility before Dec. 46. Any such items not actually exported, reexported, or transferred before midnight on Nov. 2 will require a license in accordance with this rule.

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.
