Export Controls: Denied Parties
With concerns about the unauthorized and/or inappropriate transfer of technology, products, and information to individuals or entities within or beyond US borders, the US Government established laws and regulations, known as export controls, to restrict such transfer. The government regulates the export of sensitive information, physical equipment, and software and technology to promote foreign policy objectives and promote national security. Under US law, specific individuals, organizations, and countries deemed a risk or danger to US interests are subject to various trade sanctions, restrictions, and embargoes. Through export controls, all US citizens and companies are required to avoid conducting any transactions with these entities.
