Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Unverified List (UVL)

PDF Format

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by: requiring exporters to file an Automated Export System (AES) record for all exports subject to the EAR involving a party or parties to the transaction who are listed on the Unverified List (the ''Unverified List'' or UVL); suspending the availability of license exceptions for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) involving a party or parties to the transaction who are listed on the UVL; requiring exporters, reexporters, and transferors to obtain a UVL statement from a party or parties to the transaction who are listed on the UVL before proceeding with exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) involving items subject to the EAR, but where the item does not require a license, i.e., No License Required (NLR); publishing the UVL in the EAR; and adding to the EAR the procedures to request removal or modification of a UVL entry.

These changes to the UVL enhance the U.S. Government's ability to verify the bona fides of parties to exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of items subject to the EAR and provide the U.S. Government increased visibility into such exports, reexports, and transfers involving persons whose bona fides could not be verified.

|| PDF Format

This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by removing two persons from the Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to Part 744), as the result of a request for removal submitted by these two persons. In addition, on the basis of the annual review conducted by the End User Review Committee, this rule amends the Entity List to remove two entries from the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). Finally, this rule modifies two existing entries to correct the scope of those entries, including removing a redundant entry that was inadvertently added in a final rule.
