Chart 1: Persons/Organizations in Entity List (by Country)
The US Entity List is a list published by the US Department of Commerce which contains a list of foreign persons and/or organizations that are subject to licensing requirements. U.S. companies wishing to export products and equipment to these foreign persons or organizations must apply for a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security, an agency under the U.S. Department of Commerce.
If the review policy for these foreign persons or organizations is listed as Presumption of Denial in the entity list, then any license applications are unlikely to be granted. Based on public information from the US Department of Commerce (as of 21 May 2019), there are currently 1138 foreign persons or organizations under the Entity List.
