US Department of Commerce to add 33 Chinese entities to unverified export list

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is modifying the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding 33 Chinese entities to the Unverified List (UVL). The UVL shows names of companies that the BIS cannot verify as trustworthy because an end-user check could not be completed to a satisfactory level.


The unverified list contains the names and addresses of foreign persons/entities who are or have been parties to a transaction involving the export, re-export, or transfer (into the country) of articles subject to the EAR, such as electronics or sensors and lasers. The entities include listed companies, universities and aerospace and electronic suppliers.

For each listed person in the UVL there are ad-hoc license procedures to satisfy, which are also independent on any other licenses required outside of the provisions of the UnVerified List, before any transaction can be legally made.This provisions apply to all U.S. origin items, wherever located; to all items in the United States, including in a U.S. Foreign Trade Zone or moving intransit through the United States from one foreign country to another and to foreign-made commodities that incorporate controlled U.S.-origin.
