The EAR issued under the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. app. 2401–2420 (2000)) (‘‘EAA’’). 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 7, 2014 (79 FR 46959 (Aug. 11, 2014)), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq.) (2006 & Supp. IV 2010). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Oct 06, 2014 Jkt 235001 days, the export privileges under the Regulations of: X–TREME Motors LLC, also known as XTREME Motors; XTREME Outdoor Store, also known as XTREME Outdoors; Tyson Preece; Corey Justin Preece, also known as Corey Preece or Justin Preece; and Toby Green. Corporate filings with the Utah Secretary of State list both Preeces and Green as officers of X–TREME Motors LLC. X–TREME Motors LLC is a Utahbased company that holds itself out as selling all-terrain vehicle, dirt bike and snowmobile parts. XTREME Outdoors Store is an on-line vendor for tactical gear and equipment such as rifle scopes, and shares the same address and phone number with X–TREME Motors LLC. Corey Justin Preece is listed as the registrant of XTREME Outdoor Store’s Web site using the name Justin Preece. Pursuant to Section 766.24, BIS may issue an order temporarily denying a respondent’s export privileges upon a showing that the order is necessary in the public interest to prevent an ‘‘imminent violation’’ of the Regulations. 15 CFR 766.24(b)(1) and 776.24(d). ‘‘A violation may be ‘imminent’ either in time or degree of likelihood.’’ 15 CFR 766.24(b)(3). BIS may show ‘‘either that a violation 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. As to the likelihood of future violations, BIS may show that the violation under investigation or charge ‘‘is significant, deliberate, covert and/or likely to occur again, rather than technical or negligent [.]’’ 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. In its request, BIS has presented evidence that X–TREME Motors LLC and XTREME Outdoors (collectively ‘‘X–TREME’’) have repeatedly engaged in conducted prohibited by the Regulations by exporting items controlled for Crime Control reasons without the required licenses to various destinations, including Russia and China. In order to evade detection by law enforcement, X–TREME has intentionally provided false information on Customs Declarations by stating the packages contain various ATV parts. Since September 1, 2014, the U.S. Government has identified over 200 shipments exported or intended for export where X–TREME mislabeled the contents. The U.S. Government has detained approximately 50 of those shipments, including approximately 20 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60445 shipments of rifle scopes to destinations that would require an export license from BIS. A search of BIS’s licensing database reveals no licensing history as to any of these shipments of riflescopes. For example, one detained shipment from on or about September 4, 2014, included a Model XPS–3 holographic weapon sight classified under ECCN 0A987 and controlled for Crime Control reasons. The shipment was destined for Russia, and as such required a Department of Commerce license pursuant to Section 742.7 of the Regulations. The Customs Declaration submitted to the United States Postal Service falsely labeled the contents of the shipment as ‘‘ATV GRIPS.’’ X– TREME MOTORS LLC was listed as the shipper. Affixed to the product box containing the XPS–3 weapon sight is a manufacturer’s sticker warning that the item ‘‘is controlled under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) [ECCN 0A987]’’ and may not be exported without U.S. Department of Commerce authorization. (Parenthetical and brackets in original). Despite having notice that a license was required to export the item, no license was sought or obtained for this attempted export. On or about September 10, 2014, the U.S. Government detained another shipment destined for Russia containing a Taser Model C2 stun gun, classified under ECCN 0A985, and controlled for Crime Control reasons. A Department of Commerce license was required to export the item to Russia pursuant to Section 742.7 of the Regulations. The Customs Declaration listed the shipper as X–TREME MOTORS LLC and again falsely indicated that the contents of the shipment were ‘‘ATV GRIPS.’’ Similarly, no license was obtained. A third example involves a shipment detained on or about September 4, 2014, which included two 16-ounce cans of Oleoresin Capsicum Spray (or pepper spray), classified under ECCN 1A984, and controlled for Crime Control reasons. The Customs Declaration indicated that the shipment was destined for Russia. The export therefore required a Department of Commerce license pursuant to Section 742.7 of the Regulations. The Customs Declaration identified X–TREME MOTORS LLC as the shipper, and again falsely stated that the contents of the shipment were ‘‘ATV GRIPS.’’ As with the other exports and attempted exports referenced above, no license was obtained. I find that the evidence presented by BIS demonstrates that a violation of the Regulations is imminent in both time and degree of likelihood.
