BIS pulls eight Chinese entities from Unverified List

The Bureau of Industry and Security removed the Chinese entities from the Unverified List after verifying their bona fides during end-use checks.

 

   The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security recently has removed eight entities from its Unverified List (UVL) and corrected the name of one person currently on the list.
    “The eight [entities] are removed from the UVL on the basis that BIS was able to verify their bona fides because of an end-use check,” the agency said in a Federal Register notice.
    Removed from the UVL were:
    • Beijing Bayi Space LCD Materials Technology Co. Ltd., Beijing;

   • Hubei Flying Optical, Qianjiang, China;
    • Sunder Tools (Changxing) Technology, Huzhou, Zhejiang Province, China;
    • Wuhan Yifi Laser Equipment Co., Wuhan, China;
    • Wuxi Hengling Technology Co. Ltd., Jiangsu Province, Wuxi City, China;
    • Xiamen Sanan Optoelectronics, Xiamen, China;
   • Zhejiang Xizi Aviation, Zhejiang, China;
    • And Zolix Instruments Co., Beijing.
    The Federal Register notice noted a correction to one Chinese UVL listing: Beijing Institute of Nanoenergy and Technology. BIS was notified that the entity’s correct name is Beijing Institute of Nanoenergy and Nanosystems.
    The Unverified List, short for the List of Unverified Persons in Foreign Countries, was established by BIS in June 2002. Its purpose is to make exporters aware of the U.S. government’s concerns with certain foreign entities or individuals due to possible national security concerns, but whose overseas locations could not be definitively identified during BIS’s prelicense checks or post-shipment verifications.
    There are myriad reasons why end-use checks may be incomplete. For example, BIS may be unable to find the foreign party’s address indicated on the export documents and thus cannot contact the party by telephone or email for additional information. There may be cases in which BIS is prevented by foreign governments from performing thorough export end-use checks.
   Under these circumstances, the lack of sufficient information precludes BIS from adding these foreign entities or individuals of concern to the more explicit Entity List, resulting in their placement on the UVL.

We are seeing many more pricing requests for Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Few actually moved their supply chains outside of China because this will take time, especially for larger shippers. However, Taiwan and South Korea are in a unique situation: Some manufacturing had shifted to mainland China in the last decade due to lower costs, but that infrastructure is still in Taiwan and South Korea. Some manufacturing may temporarily shift back there until Southeast Asia infrastructure catches up. 

Seven container liner shipping companies deploy capacity on the India Subcontinent to North America (US/CA) trade, with Maersk Line deploying the most capacity each week towards the trade, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Carrier/Trade Route Deployment Report.
