Changes to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)
Two amendments to the EAR were published in the April 28th Federal Register and these Final Rules are effective June 29, 2020.
- The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the EAR by removing License Exception Civil End Users (CIV)
- BIS is also expanding export, reexport, and transfer (in country) controls for military end use and military end users in China, Russia, and Venezuela.
BIS has also proposed a rule to modify License Exception Additional Permissive Exports (APR) to restrict re-export by group A:1 countries to D:1 countries. We will keep you updated when a final rule is published.
