US COMMERCE DEPARTMENT STRESSES NEED FOR ENHANCED DUE DILIGENCE FOR EXPORTS TO PAKISTAN

On 3rd September, American Shipper reported that the BIS Office of Export Enforcement has “revealed schemes” by Pakistani entities attempting to acquire US technologies to support the country’s nuclear programme.  It said that investigations had “revealed schemes to export items subject to the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) to nuclear- and missile-related entities in Pakistan listed on the Entity List without the required licenses”.  The article notes that BIS routinely adds Pakistani firms and individuals to its export control Entity List for their efforts to import US-made technology for use in the country’s nuclear programme.
