Parts 760 and 764 of the EAR specify those actions that constitute violations, and part 764 describes the sanctions that apply. In addition to describing the procedures for imposing sanctions, this part describes the procedures for imposing temporary denial orders to prevent imminent violations of the EAA , the EAR , or any order, license or authorization issued thereunder. This part also describes the procedures for taking the discretionary protective administrative action of denying the export privileges of persons who have been convicted of violating any of the statutes, including the EAA , listed in section 11(h) of the EAA . Nothing in this part shall be construed as applying to or limiting other administrative or enforcement action relating to the EAA or the EAR , including the exercise of any investigative authorities conferred by the EAA . This part does not confer any procedural rights or impose any requirements based on the Administrative Procedure Act for proceedings charging violations under the EAA , except as expressly provided for in this part.
