US Expands Export Controls of Technologies to Russia, Iran Following Air Attack on Israel

The United States is expanding its list of items that require a license to be exported to Iran and Russia. 

On Monday, the Bureau of Industry and Security amended the Export Administration Regulations and added new items to the foreign direct product rules governing the two adversarial nations.

FDP rules control the export of materials and products made abroad using U.S. technology.

The move is part of the U.S. government’s response to Iran’s air attack on Israel on April 13. According to BIS, Tehran is working with Moscow to advance their respective military capabilities and antagonize Israel and Ukraine.

“Consistent with the U.S. government’s commitment to restrict Iran from obtaining any item that might contribute to its manufacture of missiles, including those used against Israel and Ukraine, this rule amends the EAR to impose new controls restricting Iran’s access to additional low-level technology,” the bureau said.

A total of 39 new items were added to the FDP rules, restricting the sale of all 50 items under the Common High Priority List.

BIS established the CHPL in partnership with the European Union, the United Kingdom and Japan in an attempt to debilitate the Russian war machine. The list includes semiconductors, digital and video cameras, radio navigational aid apparatus, and LED.
