According to BIS Under Secretary Mario Mancuso, BIS has received several VEU applications from Indian firms that are eligible for the program. Mancuso stated that BIS is currently reviewing those companies, and noted that the interagency review will “take time.” Decisions on the applications are likely to be made “over the next several months.” He also reported that the first Chinese firms to receive VEU status have now begun to receive exports under the exception.
