WASHINGTON, June 18. /ITAR-TASS/. US authorities have put five Russian companies and organizations on the list of the so-called ‘unchecked’ partners in terms of export control. The US governmental journal Federal Register noted that Moscow region’s Fryazino branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Institute of Radio-Engineering and Electronics, JSC Voentelecom, Business Security Academy, Pumps Ampika Ltd and Nuklin Ltd were included in the list.
This step is an intermediate stage in tightening US export control over the above-listed organizations, Russian Trade Mission in the United States told ITAR-TASS. Export supplies to them are not banned, but require licensing, negotiations and registration on special tougher rules. Such supplies on preferential terms are not permitted.
The US Commerce Department Bureau of Industry and Security decided to put these Russian companies on the controlled list. The decision was caused by the fact that the US Bureau of Industry and Security failed to carry out a quite detailed check of these organizations to find an end user of products they buy.
The US has found as ‘unchecked’ 29 foreign partners from Russia, China, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates. Hong Kong companies and organizations make a majority on the list.
