The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule that expands the criteria used to place foreign entities on the Department of Commerce’s “Entity List.” The list currently includes entities whose activities could lead to the diversion of US-origin items to programs related to weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Among other things, the new rule now allows BIS to also list those entities that provide support for terrorism, enhance the military capability of State Sponsors of Terrorism, or engage in conventional weapons proliferation contrary to US security interests.
