The U.S. government is making changes to the rules for exports involving a person on the Unverified List.

The Unverified List is one of several government lists of parties of concern. Prior to shipping an item, exporters are required to confirm that the parties involved in the transaction do not appear on these lists. If they do appear, then the exporter is responsible for additional due diligence.

The following changes to the regulations for the Unverified List are effective January 21, 2014.

These changes include:

  1. Publishing the criteria for listing a person on the Unverified List.
  2. Suspending license exceptions for exports, reexports, and transfers to parties on the Unverified List.
  3. Requiring exporters to file an AES record for shipments to parties listed on the Unverified List, regardless of the item’s value or ultimate destination.
  4. Requiring exporters to obtain a statement from parties on the Unverified List in which the parties consent to an end-use check by the U.S. government for export transactions within the last 5 years; and certify the item’s end use, end user, and country of ultimate destination.

For more information, consult the Federal Register (78 FR 76741).
