US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The United States has published changes to regulations that impose new restrictions on the export to China of aviation components and many items related to semiconductors.
The new rules will require US companies to license certain items for sale to military organizations, even if they are intended for civilian use, and will eliminate the exception that allows certain American technologies to be exported without a license that are intended for other countries and are not used for military purposes.
The rules have been made publicly available and will be published in the Federal Register on April 28.
According to experts, one rule will affect the procurement of organizations such as the People‘s Liberation Army of China, which is engaged in civilian activities, such as assistance to hospital workers.
Another rule is expected to affect elements such as programmable gate module integrated circuits, excluding licenses for Chinese importers and Chinese citizens.
The administration also published a third proposed rule change that would force foreign companies shipping certain US products to China to seek approval not only from their governments, but also from the United States authorities.
Such measures were taken after relations between the US and China deteriorated amid a new outbreak of coronavirus in the world.
