BIS Blacklist Growth Continues


The Bureau of Industry and Security added 37 entities under 38 entries to the Entity List March 2nd, including 28 Chinese firms.

Infractions included, among other activities, contributing to Russia’s military and/or defense industrial base, supporting PRC military modernization, and facilitating or engaging in human rights abuses in Burma and in the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

“We will continue to send the world a simple message—the United States will not allow diversion of peaceful trade in ways that undermine our values and weaken our security. That’s exactly what we are saying today,” said Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security Alan F. Estevez.

Sanctioned entities include AIF Global Logistics, and units of Genomics firm BGI and cloud services firm Inspur.  , Reuters previously reported BGI was collecting genetic data from millions of women for sweeping research on the traits of populations, and collaborates with China's military.
