Anti-boycott Restrictions

The Export Administration Regulations require that U.S. persons and U.S. companies refuse to participate in any foreign boycott not sanctioned by the U.S. government.  For enforcement purposes, this primarily focuses on the boycott of Israel by the Arab League. Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen have all been determined by the U.S. government to currently require participation in the boycott of Israel.

A U.S. person or company should not conduct any business with any company that ask inquiries about their business dealings with Israel or national/residents of Israel. Any inquiry of this nature that have no bearing on normal business information may be a violation of the U.S. anti-boycott law, including inquiries that have not been responded to. Any violation must be reported to the U.S. Department of Commerce-Office of Anti-boycott Compliance.
