Temporarily Denying Export Privileges

    Pursuant to Section 766.24 of the Export Administration Regulations 
(``EAR''),\1\ I hereby grant the Bureau of Industry and Security's 
request for an Order Temporarily Denying the Export Privileges of 
Respondent, Bill Chen aka Yueqiang Chen, for 180 days as I find that 
the TDO is necessary in the public interest to prevent an imminent 
violation of the EAR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 15 CFR Parts 730-774 (2007). The EAR are issued under the 
Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. app. Sec.  
2401-2420 (2000)) (``EAA''). Since August 21, 2001, the EAA has been 
in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 
17, 2001 (3 CFR 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), as extended most recently by 
the Notice of August 3, 2006 (71 FR 44551, (August 7, 2006)), has 
continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency 
Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. Sec.  1701-1706 (2000)) (``IEEPA'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I. Legal Standard

    Pursuant to Sec.  766.24(b) of the EAR, the Assistant Secretary may 
issue a TDO ``upon a showing by BIS that the order is necessary in the 
public interest to prevent an imminent violation of the * * * EAR.'' 
``A violation may be `imminent' either in time or in degree of 
likelihood.'' 15 CFR 766.24(b)(3). This includes a violation that ``is 
about to occur, or that the general circumstances of the matter under 
investigation or case under criminal or administrative charges 
demonstrate a likelihood of future violations.'' Id. Significant, 
deliberate, and covert violations are more probative of imminence and 
the likelihood of future violations than lesser technical ones. Id. A 
``lack of information establishing the precise time a violation may 
occur does not preclude a finding that a violation is imminent, so long 
as there is sufficient reason to believe the likelihood of a 
violation.'' Id.

II. Findings

    Respondent has been under a temporary denial order since May 12, 
2006 for his role in selling and shipping items subject to the EAR to 
end-users in China who are engaged in the design, development, 
production and use of cruise missile systems without the required 
export licenses. On May 24, 2006, the Respondent was indicated by a 
federal grand in the Northern District of California for violating the 
EAR in connection with five unlicensed exports, occurring as early as 
January 22, 2003 and as recently as July 3, 2005, to end-users in China 
knowing that such items would be used in the design, development, 
production, and use of missiles. On April 6, 2007, Mr. Chen submitted a 
declaration that he would assert his Fifth Amendment privilege against 
self incrimination in connection with any questions that would be 
raised during his deposition in a related administrative proceeding. 
Then, on April 30, 2007, a U.S. Magistrate Judge granted Respondent's 
request to travel to China to visit ailing family members while the 
indictment is pending against him. Based upon this authorization, Mr. 
Chen has departed for China and is scheduled return in late May 2007. 
While Mr. Chen has been placed on administrative leave, he remains an 
employee of Data Physics. Additionally, BIS has submitted evidence to 
me that shows that Respondent has played a role in selling items 
subject to the EAR

to entities in China on BIS's Entity List without the required export 
licenses.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 15 CFR 744 Supplement No. 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I find that the evidence presented by BIS demonstrates that the 
Respondent has violated the EAR, that such violations have been 
significant, deliberate and covert, and that there is a likelihood of 
future violations. Accordingly, I find that issuing a TDO against Bill 
Chen for 180 days is necessary in the public interest to prevent an 
imminent violation of the EAR.

in section 766.23 of the EAR, any other person, firm, corporation, or
