Expanded Hong Kong license requirements

On December 23, 2014, the Commerce Department released a rule that expanded license requirements for both exports and re-exports to Hong Kong for products that are controlled for reasons of national security. Before this rule was issued, there was no destination-based license requirement for “certain national security-controlled items”.  Additionally, these items will require an import license from the Hong Kong government, allowing them better tracking and monitoring of the shipments. The rule is in line with the policy objectives of both the U.S. and Hong Kong governments, limiting diversion of sensitive items.
