Export licensing requirement

On 2 June 2022, the U.S. Department of Commerce introduced new export controls targeting 71 entities from Russia and Belarus said to support Russian military activities. Formally, these 71 entities were placed on the Commerce Department’s Entity List. For entities in the Entity List, BIS imposes a licensing requirement for US suppliers that would export, re-export, or transfer any commodity to these entities. Applications for an export license will be reviewed with a highly restrictive “policy of denial”.

According to a statement from the White House, this action was taken to restrict the Russian military’s ability to obtain technologies and other items in response to Russia’s assault on the sovereignty of Ukraine.

In this context, Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security Alan Estevez said: “The U.S. and our international partners have put in place strong, sweeping restrictions on Russia’s ability to obtain the items and technologies it needs to sustain its military aggression. Today’s action demonstrates that we’re watching closely and will not hesitate to act when there is evidence that entities and individuals are providing support to Russia’s military.”
