Export Enforcement Actions in 2007

Below is a link to the US Department of Justice’s Fact Sheet: Major U.S. Export Enforcement Actions in the Past Year. Please pass it along to anyone who doesn’t believe that people ever get in trouble for export violations.

A few that stood out for me:

  • Excellence Engineering Electronics – Restricted Technology to China
  • ITT Corporation – $100 Million Penalty for Illegal Exports of Military Night Vision Technology to China, Singapore, U.K.
  • United Calibration Corporation in California – Technology with Nuclear Applications to Iran
  • Infocom Corporation – Terrorist Transactions, Computer Exports to Libya and Syria

Read through the list carefully – some of these guys knew what they were doing was wrong, but I bet more than one was just conducting day to day business.
