WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The U.S. has added seven China-related entities, mostly related to aerospace, to its export control list, citing national security and foreign policy concerns, according to a U.S. Commerce Department notice published online on Tuesday.

According to a notification posted to the Federal Register, China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp. 9th Academy 771 Research Institute, China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp. 9th Academy 772 Research Institute, China Academy of Space Technology 502 Research Institute, China Academy of Space Technology 513 Research Institute, China Electronics Technology Group Corp. 43 Research Institute, China Electronics Technology Group Corp. 58 Research Institute and Zhuhai Orbita Control Systems were added to the list, indicating suppliers of U.S. materials or services to these entities will need a license before shipping any goods.

Commerce said the entities were added for "acquiring and attempting to acquire U.S.-origin items in support of China's military modernization efforts."
