Restricting Additional Exports and Reexports to Cuba
Document Number: 2019-22876
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-10-21
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
In this final rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to further restrict exports and reexports of items to Cuba. Specifically, this rule amends the Cuba licensing policy in the EAR to establish a general policy of denial for leases of aircraft to Cuban state-owned airlines. This rule also amends License Exception Aircraft, Vessels and Spacecraft (AVS) to clarify that aircraft and vessels are not eligible for the license exception if they are leased to or chartered by a national of Cuba or a State Sponsor of Terrorism. Additionally, this rule amends the EAR to establish a general 10-percent de minimis level for Cuba. Finally, this rule revises License Exception Support for the Cuban People (SCP) to make the Cuban government and communist party ineligible for certain donations, removes an authorization for promotional items that generally benefits the Cuban government, and clarifies the scope of telecommunications items that the Cuban government may receive without a license. BIS is making these amendments to further restrict the Cuban government's access to items subject to the EAR, thereby supporting the Administration's national security and foreign policy decision to hold the Cuban regime accountable for its repression of the Cuban people and its support for the Maduro regime in Venezuela; the Cuban regime denies its people fundamental freedoms while keeping Maduro in power using Cuban military intelligence and state security services. These amendments are consistent with the National Security Presidential Memorandum on Strengthening the Policy of the United States Toward Cuba, signed by the President on June 16, 2017.

Addition of Certain Entities to the Entity List and Revision of Entries on the Entity List
Document Number: 2019-17921
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-21
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) and sixty-eight of its non-U.S. affiliates were added to the Entity List effective May 16, 2019. Their addition to the Entity List imposed a licensing requirement under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) regarding the export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) of any item subject to the EAR to any of these sixty-nine listed Huawei entities. The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is now adding forty-six additional non-U.S. affiliates of Huawei to the Entity List because they also pose a significant risk of involvement in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. Nineteen of these forty-six affiliated entities are being added to the existing entry for Huawei; the other twenty-seven entities are being added under new, separate entries. This rule also modifies the existing entries for Huawei and three Huawei affiliates in China by moving the three affiliates under the entry for Huawei instead of continuing to list them under separate entries, and by adding one alias and four addresses to the Huawei entry, including the addresses for those three affiliates. The entries for five other existing entries for Huawei affiliates in China, Belgium, and Brazil are also being modified by this rule.
Temporary General License: Extension of Validity, Clarifications to Authorized Transactions, and Changes to Certification Statement Requirements
Document Number: 2019-17920
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-21
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
On May 16, 2019, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) and sixty-eight of its non-U.S. affiliates were added to the Entity List. Their addition to the Entity List imposed a licensing requirement under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) regarding the export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) of any item subject to the EAR to any of these 69 listed Huawei entities. The Entity List-based licensing requirement applied in addition to any other license requirement, if any, applicable under the EAR to the transaction in question. On May 22, 2019, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a temporary general license, effective May 20, 2019, that modified the effect of the listing in order to temporarily authorize engagement in certain transactions, involving the export, reexport, or transfer (in- country) of items subject to the EAR to the 69 listed Huawei entities. The U.S. Government has decided to extend the temporary general license through November 18, 2019. In order to implement this decision, this final rule revises the temporary general license to remove the expiration date of August 19, 2019, and substitutes the date of November 18, 2019. This final rule also makes certain clarifying changes to the authorized transactions under the temporary general license to improve public understanding. Lastly, this final rule revises the temporary general license by changing which party to the transaction is required to create the certification statement by requiring that the exporter, reexporter, or transferor obtain a certification statement from the pertinent Huawei listed entity prior to using the temporary general license. Concurrently with the this final rule, BIS is also publishing elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register the final rule, Addition of Certain Entities to the Entity List and Revision of Entries on the Entity List. This final rule, as a conforming change for the addition of these other non-U.S. affiliates of Huawei to the Entity List, revises the temporary general license to include those additional Huawei affiliates within the scope of the temporary general license.

In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding seventeen entities, under a total of nineteen entries, to the Entity List.

These entities will be listed on the Entity List under the destinations of Armenia, Belgium, Canada, the People's Republic of China (China), Georgia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Russia, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), and the United Kingdom (U.K.). This rule also modifies a total of twenty-three entries on the Entity List under the destinations of China, Hong Kong, and Russia.

The removals are made in connection with requests for removal that BIS received pursuant to the EAR and a review of information provided in those requests.
