BIS and DDTC implement strengthened US Export Controls on Russia in response to poisoning and imprisonment of Navalny
On March 18, 2021, the US State Department (State) published a Federal Register notice that formally outlines the various US export controls targeting Russia that will be strengthened pursuant to the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (CBW Act) as a result of State’s determination that the Russian Government had used a chemical weapon against its own nationals in violation of international law. On the same day, State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) published a notice explaining its implementation of the CBW Act in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the US Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published its own notice explaining its implementation of the CBW Act in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
