Action Affecting Export Privileges; Khalid Mahmood; In the Matter 
of Khalid Mahmood, 11505 Blue Ridge Drive, Beltsville, MD 20750, 
Respondent

Order Relating to Khalid Mahmood

    The Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``BIS'') has notified Khalid Mahmood (hereinafter referred to as 
``Mahmood'') of its intention to initiate an administrative proceeding 
against Mahmood pursuant to Section 766.3 of the Export Administration 
Regulations (currently codified at 15 CFR parts 730-774 (2006)) 
(``Regulations'') \1\ and Section 13(c) of the Export Administration 
Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. app. sections 2401-2420 (2000)) 
(``Act''),\2\ by issuing a proposed charging letter to Mahmood that 
alleged that Mahmood committed six violations of the Regulations. 
Specifically, the charges are:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The violations charged occurred between 2003 and 2004. The 
Regulations governing the violations at issue are found in the 2003-
2004 versions of the Code of Federal Regulations (15 CFR part 730-
774 (2003-2004)). The 2006 Regulations govern the procedural aspects 
of the case.
    \2\ Since August 21, 2001, the Act has been in lapse and the 
President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 
2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive 
Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 2, 2006 
(71 FR 44,551 (Aug. 7, 2006)), has continued the Regulations in 
effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701-1706 (2000)) (``IEEPA'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Charge 1 15 CFR 764.2(d)--Conspiracy To Violate the Regulations

    Beginning in or about February 2003 and continuing through in or 
about December 2004, Mahmood acted in concert with others, known and 
unknown, to do or bring about an act that violates the Regulations. The 
purpose of the conspiracy was to export lift truck parts (``parts'') 
items subject to the Regulations (``EAR 99'' \3\) and the Iranian 
Transactions Regulations,\4\ from the United States to Iran without the 
required U.S. Government authorization. In furtherance of the 
conspiracy, Mahmood facilitated the export of parts from the United 
States through the United Arab Emirates (``UAE'') to Iran. Pursuant to 
Section 746.7 of the Regulations, authorization was required from the 
Office of Foreign Assets Control, U.S. Department of Treasury 
(``OFAC'') before the parts could be exported to Iran. Failure to 
obtain authorization from OFAC is a violation of the Regulations. In so 
doing, Mahmood committed one violation of Section 764.2(d) of the 
Regulations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ EAR 99 is a designation for items subject to the Regulations 
that are not listed on the Commerce Control List.
    \4\ The Iranian Transactions Regulations are currently codified 
in the Code of Federal Regulations at 31 CFR part 560 (2006).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Charges 2-6 15 CFR 764.2(b)--Causing the Export of Lift Truck Parts to 
Iran Without the Required Authorizations

    On five occasions between on or about March 28, 2003 and on or 
about December 18, 2003, Mahmood caused the doing of an act prohibited 
by the Regulations. Specifically, Mahmood coordinated the shipping of 
parts, items subject to the Regulations (``EAR 99'') and the Iranian 
Transactions Regulations, from the United States to Iran through the 
UAE without the required U.S. Government authorizations. Pursuant to 
Section 560.204 of the Iranian Transactions Regulations, an export to a 
third country intended for transshipment to Iran is a transaction 
subject to the Iranian Transactions Regulations. Pursuant to Section 
746.7 of the Regulations, authorization was required from OFAC for the 
shipment of the parts from the United States to Iran. Failure to obtain 
authorization from OFAC is a violation of the Regulations. By causing 
these exports in this manner, Mahmood committed five violations of 
Section 764.2(b) of the Regulations.
