Frequently Asked Questions

905. Does Executive Order (E.O.) 13959, as amended, prohibit U.S. persons from engaging in all activities with companies listed on the Non-SDN Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Companies List (the "NS-CMIC List")?

Answer

No.  The prohibitions of E.O. 13959, as amended, apply only with respect to certain purchases or sales of publicly traded securities of entities listed on the NS-CMIC List.  E.O. 13959, as amended, does not prohibit activity with entities listed on the NS-CMIC List that is unrelated to such securities, such as the purchase or sale of goods or services.  E.O. 13959, as amended, also does not prohibit the purchase or sale of goods or services with respect to subsidiaries of such entities.
