On Tuesday, March 25, 2014, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced that effective March 1, 2014, it has placed a hold on the issuance of any export licenses authorizing the export or re-export of items to Russia. BIS has stated that this practice will continue until further notice. This action evidently is another sanctions measure against Russia stemming from the Ukraine situation.
BIS is the agency responsible for administering export controls on dual-use items that are subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This includes most goods, software and technology originating from the United States, and also some items made outside the United States that incorporate specified levels of US-origin content. If an item subject to the EAR is controlled for export or re-export to a certain country, end-use, or end-user, an export license is required absent a license exception.
