(A) that any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States be prohibited from sale to other countries
(B) that any chemical be prohibited from sale to other countries that was banned on medical grounds in the United States - good usage of subjunctive, but too wordy, A says the exact same thing
(C) prohibiting the sale to other countries of any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States
(D) prohibiting that any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States is sold to other countries - Incorrect usage of the subjunctive mode
(E) that any chemical banned in the United States on medical grounds is prohibited from being sold to other countries - Incorrect use of subjunctive

I am between A and C. I'm going with C, sound better.
