Once again, the U.S. has tightened restrictions on exports in relation to export to Russia. About it write “news”.
So, the Bureau of industry and security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce has introduced two new rules that will further restrict the potential export of sensitive technology to Russia, China and Venezuela. The relevant measure came into force Monday, June 29.
One of the requirements overrides the exception for U.S. exporters, who previously could supply Russia with a relatively wide range of goods without a license, if they were intended for civil use by civil users. Now, under the new rule, the exporter will need to obtain a special license from the Ministry of trade of the United States.
Thus, companies will need additional time to obtain a license. While permission may be denied if the Bureau has any doubts in the end user products.
The decision on the introduction of new BIS rules explained by the fact that countries like Russia and China allegedly often used the strategy of integration of civil and military industries.
The second limitation will also affect Russia, China and Venezuela, it will expand the definition of “military use” items. Under ultimate military use will now be understood to refer to any person or entity whose actions or functions are intended to support military end-use product.
Earlier, U.S. Secretary of state Michael Pompeo reported that Washington has stopped the export of military goods and dual-use technologies in Hong Kong. The ban, which came into force Monday, June 29, will affect the supply of a controlled division of the Department of state for political-military Affairs military goods of American manufacture, as well as relevant to the national security of dual-use technologies controlled by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
