Three important regulatory developments were published yesterday in the Federal Register by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security:

  • A Final Rule expanding license requirements for exports, reexports and in-country transfer for military end use or military end users in China, Russia and Venezuela. The Final Rule goes into effect on 29 June 2020.
  • A Proposed Rule modifying the Additional Permissive Reexports (APR) license exception to remove provisions that authorize reexports of certain national security-controlled items on the Commerce Control List. Comments on the Proposed Rule are due 29 June 2020.
