The motorcycle helmet manufacturer Sartan Motorcycles is “scared” of the United States sanctions against it after it signed a contract with the U.S. State Department last week.
The company was told that it would be unable to sell its helmets in the United State unless it received an approval from the government.
The sanctions, which have been in place since April 18, restrict the supply of Sartans helmets and have led to widespread criticism of the helmet industry.
Sartan said in a statement to the Associated Press that it has been “taken aback” by the State Department’s decision and is now “deeply concerned” about the sanctions.
“Our mission is to ensure that American consumers can be protected from unnecessary injury and illness,” Sartanism said in the statement.
Sara Hargrove, a spokesperson for the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, told the AP that the agency had not seen the Sartana’s statement and declined to comment further. “
We are also concerned that this is the first time in history that the State Dept. has taken action to prevent a motorcycle helmet supplier from exporting its products to the U, and this is not the first sanction imposed on Sartanian.
Sara Hargrove, a spokesperson for the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, told the AP that the agency had not seen the Sartana’s statement and declined to comment further.
‘Scared’ by sanctions In a statement on its website, Sartani said that it was “deepening its focus” on its global business, but that it is “deepened by the current global economic climate and by recent events.”
Sartsan said that “our business operations will not be impacted” by sanctions, adding that it will continue to work to bring the world more awareness about the safety of its products.
In the statement, Sarma also said that the sanctions would “destroy Sartania’s global reputation,” adding that the company will continue working with government authorities to find a solution to the situation.
