CHINA USED STOELN DATA TO TRACK CIA OPERATIVES IN AFRICA, EUROPE: REPORT

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the move establishes a new process to "assist exporters in screening their customers for military end users.” The “military end user” designation requires U.S. companies to obtain licenses in order to sell to the firms.

“The Department recognizes the importance of leveraging its partnerships with U.S. and global companies to combat efforts by China and Russia to divert U.S. technology for their destabilizing military programs, including by highlighting red flag indicators such as those related to Communist Chinese military companies identified by the Department of Defense,” Ross added.

Military end-users include those in national armed services and national police, government intelligence or reconnaissance organizations, and any person or entity that supports or contributes to the maintenance or production of military items even if their business is primarily non-military.

The Commerce Department noted parties absent from the list are not excluded from regulatory prohibitions. The agency said that exporters, re-exporters, and transferors must continue to do their own due diligence to help determine whether buyers are considered military end users.

Additional parties may be added or deleted from the list as determined by the End-User Review Committee, made up of the Departments of Commerce, Defense, Energy, State, and where appropriate, the Treasury.
