Accordingly, it is hereby ordered that the November 12, 2003 Order denying Michel for five years from participating in any way in any transaction involving the export from the United States to Pakistan of any item subject to the Regulations or in any other activity subject to the Regulations that involves Pakistan is amended by deleting the address ``Vice President, Omega Engineering, Inc., One Omega Drive, Stamford, Connecticut 06907”, and by adding the address ``41 Rosewood Dr., Easton, CT 06612”.
