U.S. order renews temporary denial of export privileges of Belarusian airline for one year

Temporary denial order renewed for an extended period of one year

Temporary denial order renewed for an extended period of one year

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce today released for publication in the Federal Register an order renewing—for a third time—the temporary denial of export privileges of a Belarusian airline for one year.


As explained in the order [PDF 274 KB]:

  • An order issued in June 2022 denied the export privileges of the Belarusian airline for a period of 180 days. The order was subsequently renewed in December 2022 and then again in June 2023. Read TradeNewsFlash
  • BIS—through the Office of Export Enforcement—on November 13, 2023, submitted a written request for a third renewal of the temporary denial order (TDO).
  • Evidence presented by BIS demonstrated that the Belarusian airline has acted in violation of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the TDO; that such violations have been significant, deliberate and covert; and that there is a likelihood of imminent violations.

Therefore, the TDO is renewed for an extended period of one year due to a “pattern of repeated, ongoing and/or continuous apparent violations of the EAR.”
