Export Restrictions Added for Mainland Chinese Entity
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security has added one entity in mainland China to the Entity List, which lists entities restricted from receiving U.S. exports of goods controlled under the Export Administration Regulations. BIS is adding this entity effective 30 October after determining that it poses a significant risk of becoming involved in activities that could have a negative impact on U.S. national security interests.
For this mainland Chinese entity there will now be a licence requirement for exports, re-exports or transfers (in-country) of all items subject to the EAR and a licence review policy of presumption of denial. In addition, no licence exceptions are available for exports, re-exports or transfers (in-country) to this entity.
Shipments of items removed from eligibility for a licence exception or export or re-export without a licence (NLR) as a result of this rule that were en route aboard a carrier to a port of export or re-export on 30 October pursuant to actual orders for export or re-export to a foreign destination may proceed to that destination under the previous eligibility or NLR.
