Updated list of countries excluded from certain U.S. export controls
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce today released for publication in the Federal Register a final rule updating the list of countries excluded from certain U.S. export controls related to foreign-produced items.
The final rule [PDF 271 KB] adds:
In response to Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine and to protect U.S. national security and foreign policy interests, the Department of Commerce established highly restrictive license requirements and policies for certain transactions involving Russia and Belarus under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
To recognize partner countries implementing substantially similar export controls on Russia and Belarus, the Department of Commerce regularly publishes a list of countries excluded from certain U.S. export controls related to foreign-produced items. Today’s rule updates that list.
