A determination has been made that fourteen foreign persons have engaged in activities that warrant the imposition of measures pursuant to Section 3 of the Iran and Syria Nonproliferation Act, which provides for penalties on foreign persons (including individuals, nongovernmental entities and organizations, governments and government entities) for the transfer to or acquisition from Iran since January 1, 1999 or the transfer to or acquisition from Syria since January 1, 2005, of equipment and technology controlled under multilateral export control lists (Missile Technology Control Regime, Australia Group, Chemical Weapons Convention, Nuclear Suppliers Group, Wassenaar Arrangement) or otherwise having the potential to make a material contribution to the development of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or cruise or ballistic missile systems. The latter category includes (a) items of the same kind as those on multilateral lists, but falling below the control list parameters, when it is determined that such items have the potential of making a material contribution to WMD or cruise or ballistic missile systems, (b) other items with the potential of making such a material contribution, when added through case-by-case decisions, and (c) items on U.S. national control lists for WMD/missile reasons that are not on multilateral lists.
