Removal and Modification of Certain Entries From the Entity List: Person Removed Based on Removal Request and Clarification of Certain Entries
This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by removing a person from the Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to Part 744). This person is being removed from the Entity List because the End-User Review Committee (ERC) decided to approve this person's request for removal from the Entity List. This rule also makes a clarification for two persons that were listed on the Entity List prior to this rule being published to revise the addresses provided for these listed persons. This rule updates the address information for these two persons by replacing incorrect information. The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports and reexports to parties identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and that availability of License Exceptions in such transactions is limited.
