Temporary Denial Order Issued for Illegal Export of Crime Control items to Russia and China

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) today issued a Temporary Denial Order (TDO) suspending the export privileges of X-TREME Motors LLC, XTREME Outdoor Store, Tyson Preece, Corey Justin Preece and Toby Green for 180 days.

X-TREME Motors and XTREME Outdoors, located in West Haven, Utah, have repeatedly engaged in conducted prohibited by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by exporting items controlled for crime control reasons without the required BIS licenses to various destinations including Russia and China. In order to evade detection by law enforcement, the companies have intentionally provided false information on Customs Declarations by stating packages contain various ATV parts. Since September 1, 2014, the U.S. Government has identified over 200 shipments exported or intended for export where X-TREME mislabeled the contents. The U.S. Government has detained approximately 50 of those shipments, including approximately 20 shipments of rifle scopes to destinations that would require an export license from BIS. Corporate registration documents with Utah Secretary of State's Office list Tyson Preece, Corey Justin Preece and Toby Green as officers of X-TREME Motors LLC..


Temporary Denial Orders are issued by the Assistant Secretary for Export Enforcement, denying any or (typically) all of the export privileges of a company or individual to prevent an imminent or on-going export control violation. These orders are issued for a renewable 180-day period and cut off not only the right to export from the United States, but also the right to receive or participate in exports from the United States.

BIS controls exports and re-exports of dual-use commodities, technology and software for reasons of national security, missile technology, nuclear non-proliferation, chemical and biological non-proliferation, crime control and regional stability. Criminal and administrative sanctions can be imposed for violations of the Export Administration Regulations. For more information, please visit www.bis.doc.gov.
