On October 30, 2018, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published in the Federal Register a final rule [Docket No. 181010930–8930–01] that amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding one entity, Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Company, Ltd., to the Entity List. The entity that is added to the Entity List has been determined by the U.S. Government to pose a significant risk of becoming involved in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. This entity will be listed under the destination of China.
For the one entity added to the Entity List in this final rule, BIS imposes a license requirement for all items subject to the EAR and a license review policy of presumption of denial. In addition, no license exceptions are available for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) to the person being added to the Entity List in this rule. The acronym “a.k.a.” (also known as) is used in entries on the Entity List to identify aliases, thereby assisting exporters, reexporters and transferors in identifying entities on the Entity List.
Shipments of items removed from eligibility for a License Exception or export or reexport without a license (NLR) as a result of this regulatory action that were en-route aboard a carrier to a port of export or reexport, on October 30, 2018, pursuant to actual orders for export or reexport to a foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous eligibility for a License Exception or export or reexport without a license (NLR).
