“The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding sixteen persons under seventeen entries to the Entity List. The sixteen persons who are added to the Entity List have been determined by the U.S. Government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. BIS is taking this action to ensure the efficacy of existing sanctions on the Russian Federation (Russia) for violating international law and fueling the conflict in eastern Ukraine. These persons will be listed on the Entity List under the destinations of the Crimea region of Ukraine, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Panama, Russia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Lastly, this final rule includes a clarification for how entries that include references to §?746.5 on the Entity List are to be interpreted.” [Please see Visual Compliance RPS Changes, Updated 12-28-2015.]
