US BIS Denied Persons List

The Bureau of Industry and Security publishes this list of entities which are relevant with regards to export controls.

The Denied Persons List is a list of people and companies whose export privileges have been denied by the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). An American company or individual may not participate in an export transaction with an individual or company on the Denied Persons List.

The Denied Persons List is also included in the US Trade Consolidated List, so we may want to remove this crawler at some point.
