Specifically, these changes include the following:

  • A final rule expanding the military end user/user controls to cover a potentially far greater number of entities and activities in all three countries, including China.
  • A final rule eliminating License Exception Civil End Users (CIV), which permits exports, reexports, or in-country transfers of items controlled for national security reasons to CIV in China, Russia, Venezuela, and other countries.
  • A proposed rule that will eliminate certain provisions of License Exception Additional Permissive Reexports that currently permit reexports of controlled items to China and certain other countries based on export authorizations issued by the reexporting country.
