This rule also modifies one existing entry on the Entity List under the destination of the United Arab Emirates. Finally, this rule removes one entity under the destination of the United Arab Emirates.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:57 May 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 Background The Entity List (15 CFR, Subchapter C, part 744, Supplement No. 4) identifies entities reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) (15 CFR, Subchapter C, parts 730–774) impose additional license requirements on, and limits the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to listed entities. The license review policy for each listed entity is identified in the ‘‘License review policy’’ column on the Entity List, and the impact on the availability of license exceptions is described in the relevant Federal Register notice adding entities to the Entity List. BIS places entities on the Entity List pursuant to part 744 (Control Policy: End-User and End-Use Based) and part 746 (Embargoes and Other Special Controls) of the EAR. The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions regarding additions to, removals from, or other modifications to the Entity List. The ERC makes all decisions to add an entry to the Entity List by majority vote, and makes all decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote. ERC Entity List Decisions Additions to the Entity List This rule implements the decision of the ERC to add twelve entities, under a total of sixteen entries, to the Entity List; four of the entities being added are located in two destinations. The twelve entities are being added based on § 744.11 (License requirements that apply to entities acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States) of the EAR. The sixteen entries consist of six entries located in China, four entries located in Hong Kong, one entry located Pakistan and five entries in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). The ERC reviewed § 744.11(b) (Criteria for revising the Entity List) in making the determination to add these twelve entities to the Entity List. Under that paragraph, persons for whom there PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 is reasonable cause to believe, based on specific and articulable facts, that they have been involved, are involved, or pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved in activities that are contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States, along with those acting on behalf of such persons, may be added to the Entity List. Paragraphs (b)(1) through (5) of § 744.11 provide an illustrative list of activities that could be contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. For each of the twelve entities described below, the ERC made the requisite determination under the standard set forth in § 744.11(b). Pursuant to § 744.11(b) of the EAR, the ERC determined to add Longkui Qu and Taizhou CBM-Future New Material Science and Technology Co., Ltd., both located in China, to the Entity List for engaging in activities contrary to the national security interests of the United States. Specifically, these entities participated in the prohibited export of controlled technology concerning the manufacture of syntactic foam and supplying syntactic foam to PRC stateowned enterprises, PRC defense industrial corporations, and PRC military-related academic institutions. The ERC also determined to add four companies—Avin Electronics Technology Co., Ltd. (AETC); MultiMart Electronics Technology Co, Ltd.; Tenco Technology Company Ltd.; and Yutron Technology Co. Ltd.—to the Entity List under the destinations of China and Hong Kong for actions contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. Specifically, these entities have been attempting to procure U.S.-origin commodities that would ultimately provide material support to Iran’s weapons of mass destruction and military programs, in violation of U.S. export controls. In addition, the ERC determined to add Impex Trade & Services, located in the destination of Pakistan, to the Entity List for actions contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. Specifically, Impex Trade & Services has been involved in proliferation to unsafeguarded nuclear activities. Under the destination of the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), the ERC determined that German Sky E:\FR\FM\14MYR1.SGM 14MYR1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES 21234 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 93 / Tuesday, May 14, 2019 / Rules and Regulations International Trading Company LLC has been involved in activities that are contrary to the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States. Specifically, in accordance with § 744.11(b)(4), German Sky International Trading Company LLC is being added to the Entity List because it has prevented the accomplishment of end-user checks conducted by the Department of Commerce. Also under the destination of the U.A.E., the ERC has determined to add to the Entity List Emirates Hermes General Trading; Presto Freight International, LLC; Basha Asmath Shaikh; and Manohar Nair. These four entities have been involved in activities that are contrary to the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States as set forth in § 744.11(b). Emirates Hermes General Trading and Presto Freight International, LLC, operated by Basha Asmath Shaikh and Manohar Nair, procured U.S.-origin items for Complete Freight Solutions, a listed entity on the Entity List, and for Mahan Air, an Iranian airline that is subject to a BIS temporary denial order and has been designated a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. Pursuant to § 744.11(b) of the EAR, the ERC determined that the conduct of these twelve entities raises sufficient concern that prior review of exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of all items subject to the EAR involving these entities, and the possible imposition of license conditions or license denials on shipments to the persons, will enhance BIS’s ability to prevent violations of the EAR. For the twelve entities, under a total of sixteen entries, being added to the Entity List, BIS imposes a license requirement for all items subject to the EAR and a license review policy of presumption of denial. The license requirements apply to any transaction in which items are to be exported, reexported, or transferred (in-country) to any of the entities or in which such entities act as purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or enduser. In addition, no license exceptions are available for exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) to the entities being added to the Entity List in this rule. The acronym ‘‘a.k.a.’’ (also known as) is used in entries on the Entity List to identify aliases, thereby assisting exporters, reexporters, and transferors in identifying entities on the Entity List. This final rule adds the following twelve entities, under a total of sixteen entries, to the Entity List: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:57 May 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 China (1) Avin Electronics Technology Co., Ltd.

McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which included the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) (Title XVII, Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115–232), which provides the legal basis for BIS’s principal authorities and serves as the authority under which BIS issues this rule. As set forth in § 1768 of ECRA, all delegations, rules, VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:57 May 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 regulations, orders, determinations, licenses, or other forms of administrative action that have been made, issued, conducted, or allowed to become effective under the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. 4601 et seq.) (as in effect prior to August 13, 2018, and as continued in effect pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) and Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013), and as extended by the Notice of August 8, 2018, 83 FR 39871 (August 13, 2018)), or the Export Administration Regulations, and are in effect as of August 13, 2018, shall continue in effect according to their terms until modified, superseded, set aside, or revoked under the authority of ECRA. Rulemaking Requirements 1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. This rule is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under Executive Order 12866. 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to or be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information, subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This regulation involves collections previously approved by OMB under control number 0694–0088, Simplified Network Application Processing System, which includes, among other things, license applications, and carries a burden estimate of 43.8 minutes for a manual or electronic submission. Total burden hours associated with the PRA and OMB control number 0694–0088 are not expected to increase as a result of this rule. You may send comments regarding the collection of PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 21235 information associated with this rule, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to Jasmeet K. Seehra, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by email to Jasmeet_K._Seehra@ omb.eop.gov, or by fax to (202) 395– 7285. 3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132. 4. Pursuant to sec. 1762 of the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (Title XVII, Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115–232), which was included in the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, this action is exempt from the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requirements for notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date. 5. This action involves the removal of an entity from the Entity List. Removals from the Entity List involve interagency deliberation and result from review of public and non-public sources, including, where applicable, sensitive law enforcement information and classified information, and the measurement of such information against the Entity List removal criteria. This information is reviewed according to the procedures and criteria for evaluating removal requests from the Entity List, as set forth in 15 CFR 744.11, 15 CFR 744.16, and 15 CFR part 744, Supplement No. 5. For reasons of national security, BIS is not at liberty to provide to the public detailed information on which the ERC relies to make the decisions to remove these entities. In addition, the information included in a removal request is exchanged between the applicant and the ERC, which by law (sec. 1761(h) of the ECRA), BIS is restricted from sharing with the public. Moreover, removal requests from the Entity List may contain confidential business information that is necessary for the extensive review conducted by the ERC. 6. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., are not applicable. Accordingly, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required and none has been prepared. List of Subjects in 15 CFR Part 744 Exports, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Terrorism.

Response: To sign up for the Electronic Signature Online (eSOLTM) service, a customer must be an Informed Delivery® registered user or must register before they enroll for the service.

Thus, the only impact on customers is that they can receive Priority Mail Express, Signature Confirmation and items Insured for over $500 more conveniently if they are registered for Informed Delivery and eSOL.

[Docket No. 181219999-8999-01]
RIN 0694-AH72


Addition of Certain Entities to the Entity List, Revision of an 
Entry on the Entity List, and Removal of an Entity From the Entity List

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule amends the Export Administration Regulations 
(EAR) by adding twelve entities, under a total of sixteen entries, to 
the Entity List. These twelve entities have been determined by the U.S. 
Government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign 
policy interests of the United States and will be listed on the Entity 
List under the destinations of China, Hong Kong, Pakistan and the 
United Arab Emirates. This rule also modifies one existing entry on the 
Entity List under the destination of the United Arab Emirates. Finally, 
this rule removes one entity under the destination of the United Arab 
Emirates. The removal is made in connection with a request for removal 
that BIS received pursuant to sections of the EAR used for requesting 
removal or modification of an Entity List entry and a review of 
information provided in that request.

DATES: This rule is effective May 14, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chair, End-User Review Committee, 
Office of the Assistant Secretary, Export Administration, Bureau of 
Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, Phone: (202) 482-5991, 
Email: [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Entity List (15 CFR, Subchapter C, part 744, Supplement No. 4) 
identifies entities reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a 
significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary 
to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United 
States. The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) (15 CFR, Subchapter 
C, parts 730-774) impose additional license requirements on, and limits 
the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, reexports, 
and transfers (in-country) to listed entities. The license review 
policy for each listed entity is identified in the ``License review 
policy'' column on the Entity List, and the impact on the availability 
of license exceptions is described in the relevant Federal Register 
notice adding entities to the Entity List. BIS places entities on the 
Entity List pursuant to part 744 (Control Policy: End-User and End-Use 
Based) and part 746 (Embargoes and Other Special Controls) of the EAR.
    The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of 
the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where 
appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions regarding additions to, 
removals from, or other modifications to the Entity List. The ERC makes 
all decisions to add an entry to the Entity List by majority vote, and 
makes all decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote.

ERC Entity List Decisions

Additions to the Entity List

    This rule implements the decision of the ERC to add twelve 
entities, under a total of sixteen entries, to the Entity List; four of 
the entities being added are located in two destinations. The twelve 
entities are being added based on Sec.  744.11 (License requirements 
that apply to entities acting contrary to the national security or 
foreign policy interests of the United States) of the EAR. The sixteen 
entries consist of six entries located in China, four entries located 
in Hong Kong, one entry located Pakistan and five entries in the United 
Arab Emirates (U.A.E.).
    The ERC reviewed Sec.  744.11(b) (Criteria for revising the Entity 
List) in making the determination to add these twelve entities to the 
Entity List. Under that paragraph, persons for whom there is reasonable 
cause to believe, based on specific and articulable facts, that they 
have been involved, are involved, or pose a significant risk of being 
or becoming involved in activities that are contrary to the national 
security or foreign policy interests of the United States, along with 
those acting on behalf of such persons, may be added to the Entity 
List. Paragraphs (b)(1) through (5) of Sec.  744.11 provide an 
illustrative list of activities that could be contrary to the national 
security or foreign policy interests of the United States. For each of 
the twelve entities described below, the ERC made the requisite 
determination under the standard set forth in Sec.  744.11(b).
    Pursuant to Sec.  744.11(b) of the EAR, the ERC determined to add 
Longkui Qu and Taizhou CBM-Future New Material Science and Technology 
Co., Ltd., both located in China, to the Entity List for engaging in 
activities contrary to the national security interests of the United 
States. Specifically, these entities participated in the prohibited 
export of controlled technology concerning the manufacture of syntactic 
foam and supplying syntactic foam to PRC state-owned enterprises, PRC 
defense industrial corporations, and PRC military-related academic 
institutions.
    The ERC also determined to add four companies--Avin Electronics 
Technology Co., Ltd. (AETC); Multi-Mart Electronics Technology Co, 
Ltd.; Tenco Technology Company Ltd.; and Yutron Technology Co. Ltd.--to 
the Entity List under the destinations of China and Hong Kong for 
actions contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests 
of the United States. Specifically, these entities have been attempting 
to procure U.S.-origin commodities that would ultimately provide 
material support to Iran's weapons of mass destruction and military 
programs, in violation of U.S. export controls.
    In addition, the ERC determined to add Impex Trade & Services, 
located in the destination of Pakistan, to the Entity List for actions 
contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the 
United States. Specifically, Impex Trade & Services has been involved 
in proliferation to unsafeguarded nuclear activities.
    Under the destination of the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), the ERC 
determined that German Sky

[[Page 21234]]

International Trading Company LLC has been involved in activities that 
are contrary to the national security and foreign policy interests of 
the United States. Specifically, in accordance with Sec.  744.11(b)(4), 
German Sky International Trading Company LLC is being added to the 
Entity List because it has prevented the accomplishment of end-user 
checks conducted by the Department of Commerce. Also under the 
destination of the U.A.E., the ERC has determined to add to the Entity 
List Emirates Hermes General Trading; Presto Freight International, 
LLC; Basha Asmath Shaikh; and Manohar Nair. These four entities have 
been involved in activities that are contrary to the national security 
and foreign policy interests of the United States as set forth in Sec.  
744.11(b). Emirates Hermes General Trading and Presto Freight 
International, LLC, operated by Basha Asmath Shaikh and Manohar Nair, 
procured U.S.-origin items for Complete Freight Solutions, a listed 
entity on the Entity List, and for Mahan Air, an Iranian airline that 
is subject to a BIS temporary denial order and has been designated a 
Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the U.S. Department of 
Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control.
    Pursuant to Sec.  744.11(b) of the EAR, the ERC determined that the 
conduct of these twelve entities raises sufficient concern that prior 
review of exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of all items 
subject to the EAR involving these entities, and the possible 
imposition of license conditions or license denials on shipments to the 
persons, will enhance BIS's ability to prevent violations of the EAR.
    For the twelve entities, under a total of sixteen entries, being 
added to the Entity List, BIS imposes a license requirement for all 
items subject to the EAR and a license review policy of presumption of 
denial. The license requirements apply to any transaction in which 
items are to be exported, reexported, or transferred (in-country) to 
any of the entities or in which such entities act as purchaser, 
intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or end-user. In addition, 
no license exceptions are available for exports, reexports, or 
transfers (in-country) to the entities being added to the Entity List 
in this rule. The acronym ``a.k.a.'' (also known as) is used in entries 
on the Entity List to identify aliases, thereby assisting exporters, 
reexporters, and transferors in identifying entities on the Entity 
List.
    This final rule adds the following twelve entities, under a total 
of sixteen entries, to the Entity List:

export or reexport to a foreign destination, may proceed to that 
destination under the previous eligibility for a License Exception or 
export or NLR.

Export Control Reform Act of 2018

    On August 13, 2018, the President signed into law the John S. 
McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which 
included the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) (Title XVII, 
Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115-232), which provides the legal basis for 
BIS's principal authorities and serves as the authority under which BIS 
issues this rule. As set forth in Sec.  1768 of ECRA, all delegations, 
rules, regulations, orders, determinations, licenses, or other forms of 
administrative action that have been made, issued, conducted, or 
allowed to become effective under the Export Administration Act of 1979 
(50 U.S.C. 4601 et seq.) (as in effect prior to August 13, 2018, and as 
continued in effect pursuant to the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) and Executive Order 13222 of August 
17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive 
Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013), and as 
extended by the Notice of August 8, 2018, 83 FR 39871 (August 13, 
2018)), or the Export Administration Regulations, and are in effect as 
of August 13, 2018, shall continue in effect according to their terms 
until modified, superseded, set aside, or revoked under the authority 
of ECRA.

Rulemaking Requirements

    1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866. This rule is not an Executive Order 
13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under 
Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to or be subject to a penalty for failure to comply 
with a collection of information, subject to the requirements of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), unless 
that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This regulation involves 
collections previously approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, 
Simplified Network Application Processing System, which includes, among 
other things, license applications, and carries a burden estimate of 
43.8 minutes for a manual or electronic submission.
    Total burden hours associated with the PRA and OMB control number 
0694-0088 are not expected to increase as a result of this rule. You 
may send comments regarding the collection of information associated 
with this rule, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to 
Jasmeet K. Seehra, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by email to 
[email protected], or by fax to (202) 395-7285.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132.
    4. Pursuant to sec. 1762 of the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 
(Title XVII, Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115-232), which was included in the 
John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, 
this action is exempt from the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 
553) requirements for notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for 
public participation, and delay in effective date.
    5. This action involves the removal of an entity from the Entity 
List. Removals from the Entity List involve interagency deliberation 
and result from review of public and non-public sources, including, 
where applicable, sensitive law enforcement information and classified 
information, and the measurement of such information against the Entity 
List removal criteria. This information is reviewed according to the 
procedures and criteria for evaluating removal requests from the Entity 
List, as set forth in 15 CFR 744.11, 15 CFR 744.16, and 15 CFR part 
744, Supplement No. 5. For reasons of national security, BIS is not at 
liberty to provide to the public detailed information on which the ERC 
relies to make the decisions to remove these entities. In addition, the 
information included in a removal request is exchanged between the 
applicant and the ERC, which by law (sec. 1761(h) of the ECRA), BIS is 
restricted from sharing with the public. Moreover, removal requests 
from the Entity List may contain confidential business information that 
is necessary for the extensive review conducted by the ERC.
    6. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for 
public comment are not required to be given for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 
553, or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., are not applicable. 
Accordingly, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required and none 
has been prepared.

    Accordingly, part 744 of the Export Administration Regulations (15
