The U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is extending the temporary general license (TGL) for Huawei until 18 November 2019, and adding additional Huawei companies to the Entity List.

In addition to designating additional parties, there are substantive changes to the scope of the TGL including exclusions. Importantly, BIS is amending the certification statement required to use the TGL and such certification statement must be from the listed Huawei entity that will receive the items subject to the Export Administration Regulations, not the exporter providing those items to Huawei, as was previously the case. These developments are effective 19 August 2019. Click here to see the Commerce Department's press release.
