Export licensing requirement

On 2 June 2022, the U.S. Department of Commerce issued a final rule that revises certain provisions of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) in respect of export controls imposed on Russia and Belarus. More specifically, the Commerce Department extended the licensing requirements for Russian and Belarussian military end-users to include food and medicine. License applications for these items will be subject to a case-by-case review policy. Previously, these items were excluded from licensing requirements.

According to the statement from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the Department of Commerce, the final rule included the “corresponding modifications to the Russian and Belarusian military end-users on the Entity List as a result of the new license requirement for EAR99 food and medicine.“

In this context, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration Thea D. Rozman Kendler said: “BIS continually works to refine its rules to ensure their maximum effectiveness. The revisions in today’s rule, including to key regulatory provisions that target Russia and Belarus, will ensure that BIS continues to impose severe costs for Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine.”
