Final Rules Amend EAR's Entity List

Two final rules issued by the Bureau of Industry and Security amend the Export Administration Regulations' Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to EAR Part 774). The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from BIS and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited. The first rule ( 72,750.256) adds 16 persons under 18 entries to the Entity List. These persons have been determined by the government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. These persons will be listed under the countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates. The effective date of this rule is April 27, 2012.

Annual Review Changes

The second rule ( 72,750.255) adds two persons located in France to the Entity List. This rule also implements changes arising from the annual review of the Entity List conducted by the End-User Review Committee. The ERC conducts the annual review to determine if any entries on the Entity List should be removed or modified. Based on the ERC's review of 15 countries, the rule amends the Entity List by removing entries in Germany, South Korea, and the UAE, and by adding entities in Canada, Egypt, France, and the United Kingdom. The rule also amends entries in the Armenia, Germany, Iran, Lebanon, Syria, and UAE sections of the Entity List by providing alternate addresses, alternate spellings of names, and aliases. The effective date of this rule is April 25, 2012.
