BIS published a Final Rule in the January 26 Federal Register adding 21 persons to the Entity List, Supplement No. 4 to part 744 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

The Entity List identifies entities and other persons reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The EAR imposes additional license requirements on, and limits the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, re-exports, and transfers (in-country) to those listed.

These twenty-one persons will be listed on the Entity List under the destinations of Bulgaria, China, Kazakhstan, Russia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.).

Among the 21 are a number of entities from China, Kazakhstan, Russia, and the U.A.E. They are:

Country Name
China Chengdu Spaceon Technology Co., Ltd., along with the alias “Tianao Electronics Co. Ltd.”
Kazakhstan/Russia Abtronics
UAE Advanced Aerospace Industries
UAE Deira General Marketing
UAE DGL Clearing and Forwarding LLC
UAE Emitech Middle East FZC
UAE Eurotech DMCC
UAE Foremost International FZE
UAE Jazirah Aviation Club
UAE Modest Marketing LLC
UAE Pearltrainer FZE
UAE Sky Gulf Consultancy and Researches LLC
UAE Stealth Telecom FZC

In addition, this rule amends the EAR by removing three entities from the Entity List. This rule removes one entity listed under the destination of Taiwan and two entities listed under the destination of the U.A.E. from the Entity List. All three of the removals are the results of requests for removal received by BIS pursuant to the section of the EAR used for requesting removal or modification of an Entity List entry and a review of information provided in the removal requests.

Finally, this final rule modifies two existing entries on the Entity List. This rule modifies one entry under China and one entry under Pakistan to provide additional or modified addresses and/or names for these persons
