The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued a final rule amending the Export Administration Regulations. The rule adds 12 entities, under a total of 16 entries, to the Entity List (EAR Supplement No. 4 to EAR Part 744). BIS made this change because the End-User Review Committee determined these entities were acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. These entities will be listed under the destinations of China, Hong Kong, Pakistan, and the United Arab Emirates. The change imposes a license requirement on these 12 entities for all items subject to the EAR and a license review policy of presumption of denial. This rule also modifies one existing entry and removes one entity under the UAE destination. The effective date of the rule is May 14, 2019. For the text of the rule, see ¶72,750.450.
