On August 2, 2018, the Trump Administration announced the addition of eight Chinese entities and 36 of their subsidiaries to the US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry Security’s Entity List on the basis of national security concerns. Effective August 1, 2018, the entities added to the Entity List will no longer be able to obtain items that are subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This includes items exported from the US and US-origin items, but it also includes non-US items if they contain more than a de minimis amount of US controlled content or are the direct product of US-origin controlled technology or software. Our publication includes a listing of entities and subsidiaries that were added to the Entity List on August 2.
