A. Denial of Export Privileges of Rigel Optics, Inc. On May 12, 2009, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, Rigel Optics, Inc. (‘‘Rigel Optics’’) pled guilty to, and was convicted of, violating Section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778 (2000)) (‘‘AECA’’). Specifically, Rigel Optics pled guilty to knowingly and willfully exporting and causing to be exported from the United States to Italy Rigel 3502 Gen 2+ Night Vision Goggles, which were designated as a defense E:\FR\FM\16SEN1.SGM 16SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 179 / Thursday, September 16, 2010 / Notices mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES article on the United States Munitions List, without having first obtained from the Department of State a license for such export or written authorization for such export. Rigel Optics was ordered to pay a $90,000 criminal fine and a $400.00 special assessment. Rigel Optics is also listed on the Department of State’s Debarred List. Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations (‘‘EAR’’ or ‘‘Regulations’’)1 provides, in pertinent part, that ‘‘[t]he Director of the Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Export Enforcement, may deny the export privileges of any person who has been convicted of a violation of the [Export Administration Act (‘‘EAA’’)], the EAR, of any order, license or authorization issued thereunder; any regulation, license, or order issued under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1706); 18 U.S.C. 793, 794 or 798; section 4(b) of the Internal Security Act of 1950 (50 U.S.C. 783(b)), or section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778).’’ 15 CFR 766.25(a); see also Section 11(h) of the EAA, 50 U.S.C. app. section 2410(h). The denial of export privileges under this provision may be for a period of up to 10 years from the date of the conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(d); see also 50 U.S.C. app. section 2410(h). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that the Bureau of Industry and Security’s Office of Exporter Services may revoke any Bureau of Industry and Security (‘‘BIS’’) licenses previously issued in which the person had an interest in at the time of his conviction. I have received notice of Rigel Optics’s conviction for violating the AECA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Rigel Optics to make a written submission to BIS, as provided in Section 766.25 of the Regulations. I have not received a submission from Rigel Optics. Based upon my review and consultations with BIS’s Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, and the facts available to BIS, I have decided to deny Rigel Optics’s export privileges under the Regulations for a period of 10 years from the date of 1 The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of Federal Regulations at 15 CFR Parts 730– 774 (2010). The Regulations issued pursuant to the EAA (50 U.S.C. app. sections 2401–2420 (2000)). Since August 21, 2001, the EAA has been in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR part 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 12, 2010 (75 FR 50681, August 16, 2010), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.

Denial of Export Privileges of Related Person Pursuant to Sections 766.25(h) and 766.23 of the Regulations, the Director of BIS’s Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of BIS’s Office of Export Enforcement, may take action to name persons related to a Respondent by ownership, control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business in order to prevent evasion of a denial order. Donald Wayne Hatch (‘‘Hatch’’) is the President and co-owner of Rigel Optics and primarily controlled the activities of the business from his residence in the State of Washington. Hatch pleaded guilty to, and was convicted of, making false statements on a Shipper’s Export Declaration (18 U.S.C. 1001 (2000). He was ordered to serve a term of two years probation and pay a criminal fine of $5,000.00 with a special assessment of $100.00. Hatch is related to Rigel Optics by ownership, control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business. BIS believes that naming Hatch as a related person to Rigel Optics is necessary to avoid evasion of the denial order against Rigel Optics. As provided in Section 766.23 of the Regulations, I gave notice to Hatch that his export privileges under the Regulations could be denied for up to 10 years due to his relationship with Rigel Optics and that BIS believes naming him as a person related to Rigel Optics would be necessary to prevent evasion of a denial order imposed against Rigel Optics. In providing such notice, I gave Hatch an opportunity to oppose his addition to the Rigel Optics Denial Order as a related party. Having received no submission, I have decided, following consultations with BIS’s Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, to name Hatch as a Related Person to the Rigel Optics Denial Order, thereby denying his export privileges for 10 years from the date of Rigel Optics’s conviction. I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or Regulations in which the Related Person had an interest at the time of Rigel Optics’s conviction.

Hatch, 2602 NW 35th Circle, Camas, WA 98607, Related Person.

A. Denial of Export Privileges of Rigel Optics, Inc.

    On May 12, 2009, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern 
District of Iowa, Rigel Optics, Inc. (``Rigel Optics'') pled guilty to, 
and was convicted of, violating Section 38 of the Arms Export Control 
Act (22 U.S.C. 2778 (2000)) (``AECA''). Specifically, Rigel Optics pled 
guilty to knowingly and willfully exporting and causing to be exported 
from the United States to Italy Rigel 3502 Gen 2+ Night Vision Goggles, 
which were designated as a defense

article on the United States Munitions List, without having first 
obtained from the Department of State a license for such export or 
written authorization for such export. Rigel Optics was ordered to pay 
a $90,000 criminal fine and a $400.00 special assessment. Rigel Optics 
is also listed on the Department of State's Debarred List.
    Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations (``EAR'' or 
``Regulations'')\1\ provides, in pertinent part, that ``[t]he Director 
of the Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director 
of the Office of Export Enforcement, may deny the export privileges of 
any person who has been convicted of a violation of the [Export 
Administration Act (``EAA'')], the EAR, of any order, license or 
authorization issued thereunder; any regulation, license, or order 
issued under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
1701-1706); 18 U.S.C. 793, 794 or 798; section 4(b) of the Internal 
Security Act of 1950 (50 U.S.C. 783(b)), or section 38 of the Arms 
Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778).'' 15 CFR 766.25(a); see also 
Section 11(h) of the EAA, 50 U.S.C. app. section 2410(h). The denial of 
export privileges under this provision may be for a period of up to 10 
years from the date of the conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(d); see also 50 
U.S.C. app. section 2410(h). In addition, Section 750.8 of the 
Regulations states that the Bureau of Industry and Security's Office of 
Exporter Services may revoke any Bureau of Industry and Security 
(``BIS'') licenses previously issued in which the person had an 
interest in at the time of his conviction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of 
Federal Regulations at 15 CFR Parts 730-774 (2010). The Regulations 
issued pursuant to the EAA (50 U.S.C. app. sections 2401-2420 
(2000)). Since August 21, 2001, the EAA has been in lapse and the 
President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR 
part 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive 
Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 12, 2010 
(75 FR 50681, August 16, 2010), has continued the Regulations in 
effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701 et seq. (2000)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have received notice of Rigel Optics's conviction for violating 
the AECA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Rigel Optics 
to make a written submission to BIS, as provided in Section 766.25 of 
the Regulations. I have not received a submission from Rigel Optics. 
Based upon my review and consultations with BIS's Office of Export 
Enforcement, including its Director, and the facts available to BIS, I 
have decided to deny Rigel Optics's export privileges under the 
Regulations for a period of 10 years from the date of Rigel Optics's 
conviction. I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant 
to the Act or Regulations in which Rigel Optics had an interest at the 
time of its conviction.

B. Denial of Export Privileges of Related Person

    Pursuant to Sections 766.25(h) and 766.23 of the Regulations, the 
Director of BIS's Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the 
Director of BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, may take action to name 
persons related to a Respondent by ownership, control, position of 
responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of 
trade or business in order to prevent evasion of a denial order. Donald 
Wayne Hatch (``Hatch'') is the President and co-owner of Rigel Optics 
and primarily controlled the activities of the business from his 
residence in the State of Washington. Hatch pleaded guilty to, and was 
convicted of, making false statements on a Shipper's Export Declaration 
(18 U.S.C. 1001 (2000). He was ordered to serve a term of two years 
probation and pay a criminal fine of $5,000.00 with a special 
assessment of $100.00. Hatch is related to Rigel Optics by ownership, 
control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection 
in the conduct of trade or business. BIS believes that naming Hatch as 
a related person to Rigel Optics is necessary to avoid evasion of the 
denial order against Rigel Optics.
    As provided in Section 766.23 of the Regulations, I gave notice to 
Hatch that his export privileges under the Regulations could be denied 
for up to 10 years due to his relationship with Rigel Optics and that 
BIS believes naming him as a person related to Rigel Optics would be 
necessary to prevent evasion of a denial order imposed against Rigel 
Optics. In providing such notice, I gave Hatch an opportunity to oppose 
his addition to the Rigel Optics Denial Order as a related party. 
Having received no submission, I have decided, following consultations 
with BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, to 
name Hatch as a Related Person to the Rigel Optics Denial Order, 
thereby denying his export privileges for 10 years from the date of 
Rigel Optics's conviction.
    I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the 
Act or Regulations in which the Related Person had an interest at the 
time of Rigel Optics's conviction. The 10-year denial period will end 
on May 12, 2019.
    Accordingly, It is hereby ordered
    I. Until May 12, 2019, Rigel Optics, Inc., with a last known 
address at: 477 South 28th Street, Suite 3, Washougal, WA
