84 FR 43493-43501: Addition of Certain Entities to the Entity List and Revision of Entries on the Entity List

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) and sixty-eight of its non-U.S. affiliates were added to the Entity List effective May 16, 2019. Their addition to the Entity List imposed a licensing requirement under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) regarding the export, re-export, or transfer (in-country) of any item subject to the EAR to any of these sixty-nine listed Huawei entities. The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is now adding forty-six additional non-U.S. affiliates of Huawei to the Entity List because they also pose a significant risk of involvement in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. Nineteen of these forty-six affiliated entities are being added to the existing entry for Huawei; the other twenty-seven entities are being added under new, separate entries. This rule also modifies the existing entries for Huawei and three Huawei affiliates in China by moving the three affiliates under the entry for Huawei instead of continuing to list them under separate entries, and by adding one alias and four addresses to the Huawei entry, including the addresses for those three affiliates. The entries for five other existing entries for Huawei affiliates in China, Belgium, and Brazil are also being modified by this rule.

DATES: This rule is effective August 19, 2019.
