Revisions to the Unverified List (UVL)
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding six (6) persons to the Unverified List (the ``Unverified List'' or UVL); revising two addresses and adding an alternate name, or a.k.a., for one (1) person currently listed on the UVL; and revising three addresses, adding three additional addresses, and adding an alternate name, or a.k.a, for one (1) person currently listed on the UVL. The six persons are being added to the UVL on the basis that BIS could not verify their bona fides because an end-use check could not be completed satisfactorily for reasons outside the U.S. Government's control. Two addresses are revised for one person currently listed on the UVL to add the official Hong Kong district name. In addition, this rule adds an alternate name for this person. This rule also revises three addresses for an additional person currently listed on the UVL to add the official Hong Kong district names and correct a previous error. Finally, this rule adds three additional addresses and an alternate name for this person, as BIS has determined this person is receiving U.S. exports at additional addresses and using an additional name.
