Export Compliance and List Administration

September 19, 2007

Confirmation came this week that BIS is moving ahead with its expanded Entities List proposal which means that exporters will continue to face increasingly difficult list management issues. The proposed rule would allow BIS to identify entities that it reasonably believes pose a risk of being involved in activities that are contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the U.S. effectively expanding the criteria used to restrict exports to foreign entities. This effort reflects the ongoing expansion of list-based controls employed by export agencies. Managing the impact of these lists goes well beyond order processing to the full range of international business, including joint research, outsourcing, joint ventures, and many other collaborative efforts driven by globalization. 

For assistance with list-based export control compliance, please contact Jeff Snyder at in our Washington, D.C. office.
