Enhance your export controls and
supply chain integrity

Entities that maintain commercial ties with military end users in China, Russia, and other restricted jurisdictions may be subject to export controls and supply chain-focused security restrictions. Kharon’s MEU watchlist covers companies that are not identified as such on any U.S. export control list — addressing challenges created by complex global supply chains and the fusion of civil and military commercial activities.

Know your customer
and supply chain

The U.S. Department of Commerce imposes licensing requirements on exports, re-exports, and transfers of items intended for military end use or military end users (MEU) in China, Russia, Venezuela, Myanmar, and Cambodia. 

Kharon’s MEU watchlist provides the intelligence necessary to efficiently manage risk and support business operations. The MEU dataset includes thousands of entities that may be subject to restrictions — enabling you to quickly surface and understand where a customer, vendor, distributor, end user, or partner may present licensing, supply chain, or other risk considerations for your enterprise.

MEU export controls and supply chain restrictions extend beyond companies that are named on lists published by the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Defense. Identifying companies that may be subject to MEU restrictions requires investigation and analysis of high-risk commercial and ownership relationships.
