Know Your Sanctions Lists - AECA Debarred List

This is the sixth post in a series of twelve covering the lists that make up the U.S. Government's Consolidated Screening ListECScreening includes access to the Consolidated Screening List as well as other sanctions lists and crucial value-adding features such as Recurring Searches, Search History, and Country Alerts.

The Arms Export Control Act (AECA) provides for the debarment of individuals and entities by the Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC).  Debarment can be either statutory (following convictions for AECA violations) or administrative (following administrative enforcement proceedings) and is further defined in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) §127.7.

Debarred parties are ineligible to participate directly or indirectly in ITAR-controlled activities until reinstated.  Debarment is typically for three years, but reinstatement must be requested by the debarred party and approved by the Department of State.  Reinstatement is not automatic.

Debarments are published in the Federal Register.  The Statutory Debarment List and Administrative Debarment List are also available on DDTC’s website.  The most recent statutory debarments were announced June 6, 2019, (84 FR 26500) and included 23 individuals.
