US extends the list of companies added to the Chinese being banned from the US market.

Reports of new solar companies being added to the Entity List first emerged late yesterday, with Reuters citing two sources familiar with the matter as stating that at least 10 solar companies with some based outside of mainland China were to be added to the list as early as Friday, July 9th, 2021.

A statement issued by the Department of Commerce confirmed that its Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) had added 34 new entities to the country’s Entity List, prohibiting the import of their products. It said 14 of these entities are based in China and had enabled Beijing’s campaign of repression, mass detention, and high-technology surveillance of minority groups in Xinjiang.

“If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.”


“The Department of Commerce remains passionately committed to taking strong, decisive action to target entities that are enabling human rights abuses in Xinjiang or that use U.S. technology to fuel China’s destabilizing military modernization efforts.
The commerce department’s statement does not, however, provide any clarity on which companies have been added to the Entity List and at the time of publication, the BIS Export Administration Regulations (EAR) register had yet to be updated.

The addition of new companies to the Entity List comes weeks after the US first confirmed that a withhold release order (WRO) had been launched to prohibit the import of solar products with alleged links to forced labor in Xinjiang, specifically targeting metallurgical silicon provider Hoshine.

It was suggested at the time that while US Customs and Border Protection would be extending the reach of its enforcement action, the US will not publish the details of specific companies or products at risk of detainment. This gives me questions on what will happen with the 201 tariffs. Is the administration signaling a continuation of the tariff or is this to show the administration will not accept potential slave labor camps selling within the US market?

Is a modules shortage on the Horizon?
