    On October 13, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the District of 
Arizona, Manuel Valencia-Hermosillo (``Valencia-Hermosillo'') was 
convicted of violating Section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act, 22 
U.S.C. 2778 (2012) (``AECA''), by knowingly and willfully attempting to 
export and cause to be exported from the United States to Mexico, 
11,000 rounds of Wolf 7.62 x 39mm ammunition; 100 Palmetto State Armory 
5.56 rifle magazines; and 100 Korean 7.62 x 39 rifle magazines, all of 
which were designated as defense articles on the United States 
Munitions List, without the required U.S. Department of State licenses. 
Valencia-Hermosillo was sentenced to 15 months in prison with credit 
for time served, three years of supervised release, and an assessment 
of $100. Valencia-Hermosillo has been placed on the U.S. Department of 
State debarred list.
    The Export Administration Regulations (``EAR'' or ``Regulations'') 
are administered and enforced by the U.S. Department of Commerce's 
Bureau of Industry and Security (``BIS'').\1\ Section 766.25 of the 
Regulations provides, in pertinent part, that the ``Director of [BIS's] 
Office of Export Enforcement, in consultation with the Director of 
[BIS's] Office of Exporter Services, may deny the export privileges of 
any person who has been convicted of a violation of any of the statues 
set forth at 50 U.S.C. 4819 (e)(1)(B),'' \2\ including Section 38 of 
the AECA. 15 CFR 766.25(a).\3\ 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). In addition, pursuant to Section 
750.8 of the Regulations, BIS's Office of Exporter Services may revoke

of his/her conviction.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of 
Federal Regulations at 15 CFR parts 730-774 (2021). The Regulations 
originally issued under the Export Administration Act of 1979, as 
amended, 50 U.S.C. 4601-4623 (Supp. III 2015) (``EAA''), which 
lapsed on August 21, 2001. The President, through Executive Order 
13,222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which was 
extended by successive Presidential Notices, continued the 
Regulations in full force and effect under IEEPA. On August 13, 
2018, the President signed into law the John S. McCain National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which includes the 
Export Control Reform Act of 2018, 50 U.S.C. 4801-4852 (``ECRA''). 
While Section 1766 of ECRA repeals the provisions of the EAA (except 
for three sections which are inapplicable here), Section 1768 of 
ECRA provides, in pertinent part, that all rules and regulations 
that were made or issued under the EAA, including as continued in 
effect pursuant to IEEPA, and were in effect as of ECRA's date of 
enactment (August 13, 2018), shall continue in effect according to 
their terms until modified, superseded, set aside, or revoked 
through action undertaken pursuant to the authority provided under 
ECRA.
    \2\ The Director, Office of Export Enforcement, is now the 
authorizing official for issuance of denial orders, pursuant to 
recent amendments to the Regulations (85 FR 73411, November 18, 
2020).
    \3\ As codified at the time of the underlying conviction at 
issue, Section 11(h)(1) of the EAA, as amended, provided that: ``No 
person convicted of a violation of this chapter (or any regulation, 
license, or order issued under this chapter), any regulation, 
license, or order issed under the International Emergnecy Economic 
Powers Act [50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq.], section 793, 794 or 798 of 
title 18, section 783(b) of this title, or section 2778 of title 22 
shall be eligible, at the discretion of the Secretary, to apply for 
or use any export license under this chapter for a period of up to 
10 years from the date of conviction. The Secretary may revoke any 
export license under this chapter in which such person has an 
interest at the time of conviction.'' 50 U.S.C. 4610(h)(1).
