This two-day program is led by BIS's professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

Presenters will conduct a number of "hands-on” exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company’s export activities. This one-of-a-kind program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.

U.S. Commerce Department Expands Export Restrictions Aimed at Russia’s Defense Sector

WASHINGTON– The U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) today announced additional steps that will further restrict trade with Russia in response to Russia's continued efforts to destabilize eastern Ukraine. Today's actions are being announced in conjunction with an announcement by the U.S. Department of the Treasury that it is also imposing a new set of targeted prohibitions and designations against a range of Russian entities.

BIS will add five entities operating in the Russian Federation’s defense sector to the BIS Entity List. Designation on the Entity List imposes a license requirement for the export, reexport or foreign transfer of items subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to the designated entities, with a presumption of denial. BIS will also require licenses for an additional group of items destined to military end uses or end users in Russia.

The entities added to the BIS Entity List are:

In addition, BIS also added five Russian energy companies to the Entity List to impose a license requirement for the export, reexport or foreign transfer of items subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to those companies when the exporter, reexporter or transferor knows those items will be used directly or indirectly in exploration for, or production from, deepwater, Arctic offshore, or shale projects in Russia. License applications for such transactions will be reviewed with a presumption of denial when for use directly or indirectly for exploration or production from deepwater, Arctic offshore, or shale projects in Russia that have the potential to produce oil.

The Russian energy sector entities added to the BIS Entity List are:

BIS controls exports and reexports of commodities, technology, and software to support national security and foreign policy, including nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and missile non-proliferation, human rights, regional stability, and curbing terrorism. Criminal penalties and administrative sanctions can be imposed for violations of the Export Administration Regulations. For more information, please visit: www.bis.doc.gov.
