The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) require companies to report any boycott requests they receive on a quarterly basis. Not sure what’s considered a “boycott request”? Here are five example questions you could include in your process to check for any such requests.

  • Do I know of agreements to refuse or actual refusals to do business with Israel or with blacklisted companies?
  • Do I know of agreements to discriminate or actual discrimination against other persons based on race, religion, sex, national origin or nationality?
  • Am I aware of requests for furnishing information about business relationships with Israel or with blacklisted companies?
  • Am I aware of requests for furnishing information about the race, religion, sex, or national origin of another person?
  • Do I know of requests for paying, or otherwise implementing letters of credit that include requirements to take boycott related actions prohibited by the antiboycott regulations?

For more recent examples of boycott requests that have been reported to the Office of Antiboycott Compliance, click here.

This checklist is just one example of the information we provide to attendees during our Export Control Basics seminar. Increase your export compliance know-how and receive a packet of useful forms, guides, and other resources by attending one of our seminars this March or April.
