In April, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published two new rules that, when they become effective on June 29, 2020, will increase requirements for exports to Russia, China and Venezuela,[1] while also eliminating a license exception that allows for the export of controlled items to certain countries, such as China.[2]  

During this interim period, it is imperative that exporters assess how these new rules will impact their operations and develop a strategy to address these new requirements. Making adjustments to your export compliance program now will help facilitate business once these regulations are effective.
