Revisions to the Unverified List-Guidance as to “Red Flags” Under Supplement No. 3 to 15 CFR Part 732
On June 14, 2002, the Bureau of Industry and Security (``BIS'') published a notice in the Federal Register that set forth a list of persons in foreign countries who were parties to past export transactions where pre-license checks (``PLC'') or post-shipment verifications (``PSV'') could not be conducted for reasons outside the control of the U.S. Government (``Unverified List''). Additionally, on July 16, 2004, BIS published a notice in the Federal Register that advised exporters that the Unverified List would also include persons in foreign countries in transactions where BIS is not able to verify the existence or authenticity of the end-user, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or other party to the transaction. These notices advised exporters that the involvement of a listed person as a party to a proposed transaction constitutes a ``red flag'' as described in the guidance set forth in Supplement No. 3 to 15 CFR Part 732, requiring heightened scrutiny by the exporter before proceeding with such a transaction. The notices also stated that, when warranted, BIS would remove persons from the Unverified List. This notice removes one entity from the Unverified List based upon recently conducted PSVs or scheduled PSVs. The entity is: Fuchs Oil Middle East Ltd., P.O. Box 7955, Sharjah Airport Intl. Free Zone, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
