Under the Export Administration Regulations, a government end-user is defined as “any foreign central, regional or local government department, agency, or other entity performing governmental functions; including governmental research institutions, governmental corporations or business units, and international governmental organizations.” However, the term does not include: utilities (including telecommunications companies and Internet service providers); banks and financial institutions; transportation; broadcast or entertainment; educational organizations; civil health and medical organizations; retail or wholesale firms; and manufacturing or industrial entities.
Requests for proposal or quotation, bids, solicitations, awards or contracts with government end-users outside of the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia require a license from the BIS for Ubiquiti products classified as “ENC-Restricted”. Ubiquiti would also like to remind customers that the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.K. Bribery Act 2010 and other applicable antibribery or anti-corruption laws prohibit giving anything of value, directly or indirectly, to officials of foreign governments or foreign political candidates in order to obtain or retain business. Illegal payments to government officials of any country are strictly prohibited.
Finally, no Ubiquiti products can be exported or sold to any prohibited individuals or entities listed on the relevant U.S. lists of prohibited parties, including but not limited to U.S. Treasury Department’s lists of Specially Designated Nationals and the BIS’s Denied Persons List, Entity List, or Unverified List.
