Order Making Order Denying Export Privileges of Ruo Ling Wang Applicable to Related Person Credit International Trading Company

Pursuant to Sections 766.25(h) and 766.23 of the Export Administration Regulations [1] (“EAR”), the Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”), U.S. Department of Commerce, through its Office of Export Enforcement (“OEE”), has requested that I make the Denial Order that was imposed against the individual Ruo Ling Wang (“Wang”) on April 18, 2006 (71 Fed. Reg. 23897, April 25, 2006) applicable to Credit International Trading Co, Ltd (11th Institute), (“Credit International”), with addresses at: No. 2 Zhong Guan Cun Nan Street, Haidian District, Beijing 100039, People's Republic of China, and No 9A Dongtucheng Road, Heping Street, Chaoyang District, Beijing, People's Republic of China, (hereinafter, the “Related Person”), as a person related to Wang.

Section 766.23 of the EAR provides that “[i]n order to prevent evasion, certain types of orders under this part may be made applicable not only to the respondent, but also to other persons then or thereafter related to the respondent by ownership, control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business. Orders that may be made applicable to related persons include those that deny or affect export privileges * * *.” 15 CFR 766.23(a).

On April 18, 2006, then Director of Office of Exporter Services issued an Order pursuant to Section 11(h) of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (currently codified at 50 U.S.C. app. §§ 2401-2420 (2000)) (“Act”) [2] and Section 766.25 of the EAR denying the export privileges under the Regulations of Wang for 10 years. The Order was based on Wang's conviction of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq. (2000)) (“IEEPA”). Wang was convicted of knowingly and willfully making a false statement and concealing a material fact from the Bureau of Industry Security (“BIS”) and the former U.S. Customs Service.

BIS has presented evidence that indicates that Credit International is related to Wang by ownership, control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business, and that it is necessary to add this entity to the Wang Denial Order in order to avoid evasion of that Order. The basis for naming Credit International to the Wang Denial Order is that Wang acting for, as, or on behalf of Credit International, is actively involved in attempting to procure items for export from the United States.

As provided in Section 766.23 of the EAR, I gave notice to Credit International that its export privileges under the EAR could be denied for up to 10 years due to its relationship with Wang and that BIS believes naming Credit International as a related party to Wang would be necessary to prevent evasion of a denial order imposed against Wang. In providing such notice, I gave Credit International an opportunity to oppose its addition to the Wang Denial Order as a related party. Having received no submission, I have decided, following consultations with BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, to name Credit International as a Related Person to the Wang Denial Order, thereby denying Credit International export privileges for 10 years from the date of Wang's conviction.

I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or EAR in which Credit International had an interest at the time of Wang's conviction. The 10-year denial period will end on May 2, 2015.

Accordingly, it is hereby

Ordered
