Who will receive your item?
Certain individuals and organizations are prohibited from receiving U.S. exports
and others may only receive goods if they have been licensed, even items that do not
normally require a license based on the ECCN and Commerce Country Chart or
based on an EAR99 designation. You must be aware of the following lists:
Entity List – EAR Part 744, Supplement 4 – A list of parties whose presence in
a transaction can trigger a license requirement under the Export Administration
Regulations. 周e list speciﬁes the license requirements that apply to each listed party.
周ese license requirements are in addition to any license requirements imposed on
the transaction by other provisions of the Export Administration Regulations.
Treasury Department Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List –
A list maintained by the Department of Treasury’s Oﬃce of Foreign Assets Control
which administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions against targeted
foreign countries, terrorism sponsoring organizations, and international narcotics
周e Unveriﬁed List is composed of ﬁrms for which BIS was unable to complete an
end-use check. Firms on the unveriﬁed list present a “red ﬂag” that exporters have a
duty to inquire about before making an export to them.
Denied Persons – A list of those ﬁrms and individuals whose export privileges
have been denied is available on this website. You may not participate in an export
or reexport transaction subject to the EAR with a person whose export privileges
have been denied by the BIS. Note that some denied persons are located within
the United States. If you believe a person whose export privileges have been denied
wants to buy your product, you must not make the sale and report the situation to
BIS’s Oﬃce of Export Enforcement. If you have questions about Denied Persons,
you may contact BIS’s Oﬃce of Enforcement Analysis at (202) 482-4255.
What will your item be used for?
Some end-uses are prohibited, while others may require a license. For example, you
may not export to certain parties involved in the proliferation of weapons of mass
destruction (e.g., nuclear, biological, chemical) and the missiles to deliver them,
without speciﬁc authorization, no matter what your item is. For more information
on prohibited end-uses, please refer to Part 744 of the EAR.
