Burma: Revision of Restrictions on Exports, Reexports and Transfers to Persons Whose Property and Interests in Property Are Blocked Pursuant to Executive Orders
In response to the Government of Burma's continued repression of the democratic opposition in Burma, and consistent with Executive Order 13047 of May 20, 1997, Executive Order 13310 of July 28, 2003, Executive Order 13448 of October 18, 2007, and the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act (Title IX of Pub. L. 106-387), the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) previously amended the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) on October 24, 2007 to impose a license requirement for most exports, reexports, or transfers of items subject to the EAR to persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to those Executive Orders. In light of the Government of Burma's continued repression of the democratic opposition in Burma and unwillingness to respond to the calls of the Burmese people for genuine dialogue that will lead to a democratic transition in Burma, this final rule amends the EAR to extend these existing licensing requirements to persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to Executive Order 13464 of April 30, 2008.
