85 FR 51596: Rule
* AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.
* ACTION: Final rule.
* SUMMARY: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) and a number of non-U.S. affiliates have been placed on the Entity List. In order to further address the continuing threat to U.S. national security and foreign policy interests posed by Huawei and its non-U.S. affiliates, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) in this final rule is making three sets of changes to controls for Huawei and its listed non-U.S. affiliates under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). First, BIS is adding 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. Second, this rule removes a temporary general license for Huawei and its non-U.S. affiliates and replaces those provisions with a more limited authorization that will better protect U.S. national security and foreign policy interests. Third, in response to public comments, this final rule amends General Prohibition Three, also known as the foreign-produced direct product rule, to revise the control over certain foreign-produced items recently implemented by BIS. These revisions are consistent with the authority provided by the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA).
* DATES: This rule is effective August 17, 2020.
* FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions on the foreign direct product change, contact Sharron Cook, Senior Export Policy Analyst, Regulatory Policy Division, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, Phone: (202) 714-6685 or email your inquiry to: Sharron.Cook@bis.doc.gov. For other questions on this rule, contact the Director, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, Phone: (949) 660-0144 or (408) 998-8806 or email your inquiry to: ECDOEXS@bis.doc.gov.

85 FR 51335: Rule
* AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.
* ACTION: Final rule.
* SUMMARY: In this final rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is clarifying the supplemental license requirements for parties listed on the Entity List pursuant to the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA). Specifically, this final rule clarifies the Entity List’s supplemental licensing requirements to state that these end-user controls apply to any listed entity when that entity is acting as a purchaser, intermediate or ultimate consignee, or end-user as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
* DATES: This rule is effective August 17, 2020.

OGS_a58. Netherlands TCA: “From 1 July 2022 – No More GPA and SPA”
  With effect from July 2022, the Customs Declarations Management System (DMS) will replace the old declaration system (AGS). This marks the end of the Automated Periodic Declaration (GPA) and the Written Periodic Declaration (SPA).
  In DMS, instead of using the GPA or the SPA, you can make customs declarations as follows:
  • normal declaration procedure, with a simplified (incomplete) variant and prior declaration
  • entry in the declarant’s records, with presentation and periodical supplementary declaration
  • entry in the declarant’s records, with exemption from presentation and periodical supplementary declaration
  The first option, the normal declaration procedure, is exactly the same as you were used to in AGS.
  For the second and third options, your company needs an ‘Authorisation for Entry in the Declarant’s Records’ (IIAA).

What is presentation?
  Presentation means that when you are placed under the arrangement you must send Customs a message that meets pre-defined specifications.

How does the supplementary declaration work?
  You must submit the supplementary declaration within 10 days of the end of the period in which the goods were entered in the records. This period is set at 1 (calendar) day. That means you can no longer make a monthly declaration.

How does the presentation exemption work?
  The presentation exemption is linked to the ‘chain procedure’. Companies with several IIAA authorisations for successive (special) customs procedures can be granted an exemption from presentation of the goods on subsequent release for free circulation or placement under a subsequent special customs procedure. This is however subject to the condition that the goods continue to be entered under successive authorisations in the same company records.

Why was it decided to replace the GPA and the SPA?
  Customs has looked into which declaration services can be set up on the basis of the Union Customs Code (UCC). We also took account of the input provided by the business community during the information sessions held in the spring of 2020.

NWS_a19. EU Sanctions: “South Korean NGO Granted UN Sanctions Exemption”         

(Source: EU Sanctions, 18 Aug 2020) [Excerpts]
   The UN Security Council has granted 

South Korean NGO Medical Aid for Children’s request for an exemption from UN sanctions against North Korea for 6 months. Medical Aid for Children has been authorised to transfer items including dental instruments and scanners to N Korea as required for a medical equipment assistance project, which aims to provide healthcare services to children and other vulnerable groups. … 

(Source: The New York Times, 19 Aug 2020) [Excerpts]

  The Trump administration will formally demand on Thursday that the United Nations punish Iran with bruising sanctions for violating an agreement to limit its nuclear program – a deal from which the United States withdrew two years ago.
  The push sets up a new confrontation at the Security Council, where European allies are resisting the so-called snapback sanctions in a last-ditch attempt to hold together the fraying 2015 accord.
  “It’s a snap back. Not uncommon,” President Trump told reporters on Wednesday evening in Washington. He said he had directed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to inform the Security Council that nearly all of the United Nations sanctions against Iran that were lifted as part of the nuclear deal would be restored.
  But diplomats in Europe, China and Russia – the other powers that brokered the deal during the Obama administration – have questioned the legality of the demand because the United States is no longer part of the nuclear agreement. …
  The Trump administration had for months warned that it would seek to trigger the U.N. sanctions if an arms embargo against Iran was allowed to expire in October, as scheduled under the nuclear deal. The U.S. plan to extend the embargo was decisively defeated in a Security Council vote last week, marking an embarrassing diplomatic rebuke to Washington.
  The 2015 nuclear agreement sought to limit Iran’s nuclear program and start bringing the country out of economic and diplomatic isolation. Tehran had abided by the terms of the deal for more than a year after the Trump administration withdrew from it.
  But last summer, Iran began compiling and enriching nuclear fuel beyond the limits of the agreement, prompting European officials this year to formally accuse Tehran of violating the deal.
  At the same time, the other nations that brokered the agreement – Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia, along with the European Union – insist that the United States cannot force international sanctions on an accord it is no longer recognizing.
  Without European support, it is not clear how the United States alone would enforce the U.N. sanctions, although most global trade is routed through American financial institutions. The new sanctions would also extend the arms embargo on Iran, overriding the Security Council’s rejection last week.


What are sanctions?

  In situations of international concern, measures other than the use of armed force are often required to bring a situation to an end, limit its impacts or to penalise those responsible. This is where sanctions come into play.
Sanctions measures include financial sanctions such as asset freezes, travel bans, restrictions on trade and on engaging in commercial activities.
Australia implements two types of sanctions regimes:
  • United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions.
  • Australian autonomous sanctions.

United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions

  As a member of the UN, Australia implements all UNSC sanctions by incorporating them into Australian law.
  The UNSC has imposed sanctions in relation to various countries including Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen. Additionally, anti-terrorism sanctions are imposed against ISIL and Al-Qaida, The Taliban, and generally in relation to any persons involved in terrorist activities.

Australian autonomous sanctions

  A number of countries do not have sanctions imposed by the UNSC, however Australia implements autonomous sanctions to address conduct that is contrary to Australian foreign policy and poses a threat to national or international security.
  Australia has imposed autonomous sanctions in relation to the Former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Myanmar, Russia and Zimbabwe.
  In some cases, Australian autonomous sanctions overlap with UNSC sanctions. For North Korea, Iran and Libya, Australia incorporates UNSC sanctions into domestic law, as well as implementing its own complementary autonomous sanctions.


How can someone be removed from a sanctions list?

  If a designated person or entity wants to be removed from a sanctions list, a request can be made to be de-listed. The procedure to follow depends on the specific designated list.

Removal from UNSC sanctions

  • UNSC Listings: Requests should be made to the Focal Point for De-listing (established by UNSCR 1730) or through your country of citizenship or residence.
  • UNSC Listings related to ISIL (Da’esh) and Al Qaida: Requests should be made to the UN Office of the Ombudsperson (established by UNSCR 1904) or through your country of citizenship or residence.
  • Listings under counter-terrorism (UNSCR 1373) sanctions regime: Requests should be made through the Sanctions Contact Page of the Australian Sanctions Office.

Removal from Australian autonomous sanctions

Requests should be made through the Sanctions Contact Page of the Australian Sanctions Office.

Australian sanctions office

DFAT will establish the Australian Sanctions Office (ASO). The ASO will act as the Australian government’s sanctions regulator, responsible for:
  • Providing guidance to regulated entities on Australian sanctions law.
  • Processing applications for and issuing sanctions permits.
  • Promoting compliance and helping to prevent breaches of the law.
  • Partnering with other government agencies to monitor compliance with sanctions legislation.
  • Supporting corrective and enforcement action by law enforcement agencies in cases of suspected non-compliance.
  The ASO also receives requests to be removed from listings under Australian autonomous sanctions.

  On August 17, 2020, the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) made available for public inspection a final rule expanding restrictions on Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and its non-U.S. affiliates on the BIS Entity List (collectively “Huawei”).
  In the final rule, BIS announced a further expansion of the direct product rule asserting U.S. jurisdiction over foreign-manufactured items with respect to Huawei, ended the Huawei Temporary General License (TGL), added 38 non-U.S. Huawei affiliates to the BIS Entity List, and clarified that Entity List license requirements apply to transactions where Huawei acts in a variety of roles as a “party to the transaction.”
  In a concurrent final rule, BIS clarified that license requirements under the Entity List apply where the listed party is a “party to the transaction,” whether acting as a purchaser, intermediate or ultimate consignee, or end-user as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
These actions, while not officially published in the Federal Register until August 20, 2020, are effective as of August 17, 2020.
Changes Expand the Direct Product Rule for Huawei
  BIS has further expanded the direct product rule as applied to parties on the Entity List that have a Footnote 1 designation, which currently is limited to Huawei. Key changes to the direct product rule for transactions with Footnote 1 entities are:
  • The rule eliminates the previous threshold test of whether the foreign-made product was “produced or developed” by Huawei as provided in the May 15, 2020 interim final rule (discussed here). This expands the scope of U.S. jurisdiction and the application of prohibitions under the Entity List. Now even if the product was not specially made for Huawei, foreign-made items are subject to U.S. license requirements when either of the following conditions apply:
    • The foreign made products are the direct product of U.S. technology or software described in the following ECCNs: 3D001, 3D991, 3E001, 3E002, 3E003, 3E991, 4D001, 4D993, 4D994, 4E001, 4E992, 4E993, 5D001, 5D991, 5E001, or 5E991. Note that these classifications are for the technology and software used to make the product, they are not limitations on the classifications of the end products that are subject to license requirements.
    • The foreign-made products are produced by a plant or major component of a plant that is the direct product of U.S. technology or software with the ECCNs listed above.
  • Both these rules apply regardless of the level of export control of the item being manufactured. These aspects of the special direct product rule for Huawei were part of the previous version of the rule but take on increased significance with the elimination of the “produced and developed” by Huawei test.
  • Practically speaking, the updated rule will capture off-the-shelf items if they otherwise meet all Footnote 1 criteria, removing the uncertainty over what it means for an item to be “produced or developed” by the Footnote 1 entity.
  • The Federal Register notice clarifies that any equipment subject to the Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) specified in Footnote 1 that is involved in any of the “production” stages is considered essential for purposes of Footnote 1 paragraph (b). This includes product engineering, manufacture, integration, assembly (mounting), inspection, testing, and quality assurance. Therefore, use of any of these types of equipment that are the direct product of U.S. technology will make the end products subject to the EAR for purposes of the Huawei restrictions.
  • The amended direct product rule applies to transactions where (1) the foreign-produced item will be incorporated into, or will be used in the “production” or “development” of any “part,” “component,” or “equipment” produced, purchased, or ordered by an entity with a Footnote 1 designation; or (2) when an entity with a Footnote 1 designation is a party to any transaction involving the foreign-produced item, e.g., as a “purchaser,” “intermediate consignee,” “ultimate consignee,” or “end-user.” In other words, the restrictions apply where Huawei is a “purchaser” or where the foreign-made item is being incorporated into a product ordered by Huawei, even when Huawei never takes physical possession of the item.
  • The rule retains a presumption of denial licensing policy for exports to Footnote 1 entities, but includes a case-by-case review policy for foreign-made items that are capable of supporting the “development” or “production” of telecom systems, equipment and devices at only below the 5G level (e.g., 4G, 3G, etc.).
  • Finally, there is a “savings clause” for items produced outside the United States by a plant or major component of a plant that is the direct product of U.S. technology or software. For items that started production prior to August 17, 2020, and would not have been subject to the EAR under the prior rule, the Entity List prohibitions will not apply where exported, reexported or transferred on or before September 14, 2020.
Removal of Huawei Temporary General License (TGL) and Addition of Footnote 2 Designation
  The final rule confirms that the TGL authorizing certain dealings with Huawei which expired on August 13, 2020 will not be extended.
  The rule further adds a new Footnote 2 to the Entity List designations that retains a limited aspect of the TGL. Like Footnote 1, Footnote 2 is only applicable to Huawei and allows for limited disclosures of information to Huawei regarding security vulnerabilities in items owned, possessed or controlled by Huawei when related to the process of providing ongoing security research critical to maintaining the integrity and reliability of existing and currently “fully operational network” and equipment.
Additional Non-U.S. Affiliates of Huawei Added to the Entity List
  The following 38 new Huawei affiliates across 21 countries were added to the Entity List.  BIS states there is reasonable cause to believe that Huawei otherwise would seek to use these entities to evade the restrictions imposed by the Entity List.
  Huawei Cloud Computing Technology; Huawei Cloud Beijing; Huawei Cloud Dalian; Huawei Cloud Guangzhou; Huawei Cloud Guiyang; Huawei Cloud Hong Kong; Huawei Cloud Shanghai; Huawei Cloud Shenzhen; Huawei OpenLab Suzhou; Wulanchabu Huawei Cloud Computing Technology; Huawei Cloud Argentina; Huawei Cloud Brazil; Huawei Cloud Chile; Huawei OpenLab Cairo; Huawei Cloud France; Huawei OpenLab Paris; Huawei Cloud Berlin; Huawei OpenLab Munich; Huawei Technologies Dusseldorf GmbH; Huawei OpenLab Delhi; Toga Networks; Huawei Cloud Mexico; Huawei OpenLab Mexico City; Huawei Technologies Morocco; Huawei Cloud Netherlands; Huawei Cloud Peru; Huawei Cloud Russia; Huawei OpenLab Moscow; Huawei Cloud Singapore; Huawei OpenLab Singapore; Huawei Cloud South Africa; Huawei OpenLab Johannesburg; Huawei Cloud Switzerland; Huawei Cloud Thailand; Huawei OpenLab Bangkok; Huawei OpenLab Istanbul; Huawei OpenLab Dubai; and Huawei Technologies R&D UK.
  As with the other Huawei entities designated on the Entity List, the new entities have a license requirement for all items subject to the EAR.  A license is not required for EAR99 technology or AT-only controlled technology when released to members of a “standards organization” for the purpose of contributing to the revision or development of a “standard.”  The license review policy is “presumption of denial.”
Clarification Regarding Entity List Requirements to Purchaser, Intermediate or Ultimate Consignee, and End-User
  In a concurrent final rule, BIS clarified that the Entity List’s license requirements apply to any listed entity when that entity is acting as a purchaser, intermediate or ultimate consignee, or end-user as defined in the EAR.
  This clarification applies not only to Huawei but to all parties on the Entity List. With this new clarification, BIS seeks to make clear the scope of the Entity List’s licensing requirements. Exporters must therefore consider not only the end user or recipient of an item subject to the EAR, but also whether a listed company is otherwise acting as a “party to the transaction,” including as a purchaser.
  This rule is limited to clarification of “party to the transaction”, and does not cause the special definition of foreign direct product under Footnote 1 for Huawei, to apply to parties on the Entity List that are not designated with Footnote 1.


* Principal Author: Christopher B. Monahan, Esq., 1-202-282-5778, Winston & Strawn LLP 
  On August 14, 2020, President Trump issued an Executive Order (EO) formally ordering ByteDance, the Chinese owner of the video-sharing app TikTok, to divest its U.S. assets within 90 days. This EO comes after a unanimous recommendation by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to prohibit the 2017 acquisition of American lip-syncing app Musical.ly. In 2018, ByteDance merged Musical.ly and TikTok to create a single integrated social media application operated under the name TikTok. According to a statement by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the CFIUS chairman, “[t]he order directs ByteDance to divest all interests and rights in any assets or property used to enable or support the operation of TikTok in the United States, and any data obtained or derived from TikTok or Musical.ly users in the United States.”
  Although the underlying acquisition occurred almost three years ago, CFIUS has the authority to review closed transactions involving the foreign acquisition of U.S. businesses if the transaction was not previously cleared by CFIUS. In this case, CFIUS’s review process began in 2019 after concerns were raised regarding China’s access to the sensitive personal data of the app’s users. An additional concern raised by Senator Marco Rubio was the Chinese government’s potential censorship of content on the TikTok platform that is “not in line with the Chinese Government and Communist Party directives.” 
  This Executive Order is the latest in a series of actions by the Trump Administration targeting TikTok due to national security concerns. On August 6, the President issued a separate EO pursuant to his authorities under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. The August 6 EO prohibits, beginning 45 days after August 6, transactions by any person or with respect to any property subject to U.S. jurisdiction with ByteDance Ltd. (a.k.a. Zìjié Tiàodòng), Beijing, China, or its subsidiaries, in which any such company has any interest, as identified by the Secretary of Commerce. The EO calls for such interests to be identified by the Department of Commerce after 45 days.  
  The willingness of CFIUS to force divestiture of closed deals means companies should carefully consider whether to voluntarily file a CFIUS notice in connection with their transaction even if a filing is not required under the regulations. Filing a notice voluntarily will allow the parties to obtain a safe harbor letter from the government and avoid the possibility that the government later decides on its own to investigate the transaction. Filing a CFIUS notice and obtaining the safe harbor letter up front will save the hassle, and possible delays, an investigation initiated by the government might cause.
