BIS added the six companies to its Entity List for either helping to train China’s military, evading U.S. government end-use checks or for shipping sensitive items to Russia, while the 13 companies were added to the UVL because BIS was unable to verify their reliability in receiving export-controlled items. The Entity List additions include companies in China, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates and the U.K, and the UVL additions include businesses in China, Cyprus, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and the UAE.

The companies added to the Entity List will be subject to license requirements for all items subject to the Export Administration Regulations, and licenses will be reviewed under a presumption of denial.
