Pakistan’s due diligence guidance has now been updated by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). This guidance is meant to assist those dealing with exports to Pakistan, due to the nuclear and missile programs in the country that are subject to end-use and end-user restrictions pursuant to Part 744 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) (15 C.F.R. Parts 730-774).
The guidance emphasizes the following:
- The supplemental Pakistan-related licensing requirements are applicable for controlled items to exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of items subject to the EAR that may be destined for nuclear or missile activities.
- Restrictions on specific activities of U.S. persons
- Best practices for screening customers in Pakistan to prevent diversion of items subject to the EAR to unauthorized end uses and end users.
