An enhanced Entry Summary universe has been deployed to the ACE Reports application, and is accessible for ad-hoc report creation via the “Create Ad Hoc Report” button. This universe contains a standardized data set for all entry summaries filed in both the Automated Commercial System (ACS) as well as the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), with the exception of type 09 “reconciliation” and type 41-46 “drawback” entry summaries. These entry summary types will become available for querying in the new Entry Summary universe 3 weeks after Release 4, Deployment G (February 24, 2018) on March 17th. Additionally, a set of standard reports has been made available in the Entry Summary workspace. These standard reports are intended to serve as a template to guide users in constructing reports for commonly requested data pertaining to 7501 entry summary filings:  

  – ES-001 Entry Summary Header Details 
  – ES-002 Entry Summary Line Details 
  – ES-003 Entry Summary Line Tariff Details 
  – ES-004 Rejected and Cancelled Entry Summaries 
  – ES-005 Late Filed Entry Summaries 
  – ES-006 Entry Summary Dimensions by Value 

Data definitions for all of the data elements found in the new Entry Summary universe as well as descriptions of the standard reports can be found via the “ACE Reports Training Resources” button, which has been updated with a new version of the “ACE Reports Data Dictionary” and the “ACE Reports Catalog” – the updated documents are suffixed with v10-2017.

As an additional reminder: Legacy entry summary universes (Account Management and ESM-10002) as well as the standard reports based out of them will remain in-tact with no change in functionality with this deployment. These legacy data universes and reports will remain available for 30 days after ACE Deployment G, Release 4 (February 24, 2018) at a minimum, with March 26, 2018 being the earliest date of discontinuation.

For more information, please review the ACE Deployment G2 Reports Information Notice located here.

. Entertainment.ie: “Marvel Cancels Marketing Deal with Weapons Manufacturer Northrop Grumman Following Backlash”

(Source: Entertainment.ie) [Excerpts.]
6 Oct 2017.  The New York Comic Con is currently underway and already, there’s been some controversy. . . a promotional event for the Netflix series The Punisher was pulled, as it was deemed inappropriate in light of the mass-shooting in Las Vegas [on October 2nd].
Another Marvel event has since been cancelled, this one owing to a huge backlash – and one that’s absolutely deserving. On Friday, Marvel announced that it was partnering with weapons manufacturer and US military defence contractor Northrop Grumman on a special promotional comic called The Avengers, Featuring N.G.E.N.
The plot of the comic was the Avengers meet up with a couple of superheroes wearing special Elite Nexus suits, built by Northrop Grumann no less. …
Well, as you can imagine, there was plenty of backlash against it and one fan assiduously pointed out that Marvel was “partnering with war mongering weapon merchants that are villains in your movies.”
Incidentally, Northrop Grumman was fined $15 million in 2008 for 110 violations of the Arms Export Control Act and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations that occurred ten years previously. In other words, that guy wasn’t exaggerating – they were literally Sam Rockwell’s character in Iron Man 2.
In a matter of hours after the announcement, Marvel pulled the whole presentation and confirmed that they were ending their partnership with Northrop Grumman. Marvel and Northrop Grumman have released no further comments.

7. Expeditors News: “U.S. Revokes Certain Economic Sanctions with Respect to Sudan”
(Source: Expeditors News)
The U.S. Government announced on October 6, 2017 that it will revoke certain economic sanctions with respect to Sudan and the Government of Sudan. That action, directed by Executive Order, is effective October 12, 2017. The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued new Frequently Asked Questions and a new General license authorizing certain transactions. Concurrently, the State Department issued a statement and report with respect to the sanctions revocation. Revoking certain economic sanctions was said by State to be “in recognition of the Government of Sudan’s sustained positive actions to maintain a cessation of hostilities in conflict areas in Sudan, improve humanitarian access throughout Sudan, and maintain cooperation with the United States on addressing regional conflicts and the threat of terrorism.”

8. International Trade Compliance Blog: “New Zealand – 1 Oct Changes for Import and Export Prohibition Orders”

(Source: International Trade Compliance Blog, Baker & McKenzie)
The Customs Import Prohibition Order 2017 (CIPO 2017) and the Customs Prohibition Export Order 2017 (CEPO 2017) came into effect 1 October 2017. These Orders have replaced their 2014 equivalents, which lapsed 30 September 2017.
Apart from a clarification, to make it clear that triple edged knives are covered as offensive weapons, the wording of the Orders is unchanged from 2014.
CIPO 2017 prohibits the importation of
  – motor vehicles with inaccurate or no odometers, and
  – specified offensive weapons, such as knuckledusters, bayonets and certain knives suitable for stabbing or throwing. The complete Schedule of offensive weapons is here.
CEPO 2017 prohibits the exportation of
  – Unworked pounamu (“greenstone”) over five kilograms
  – Live green-lipped mussel spat
  – Goods listed on the Strategic Goods List and dual-use goods

9. Torres Law: “Census Bureau Requests Public Comments Regarding Routed Exports”

(Source: Trade Alert, Torres Law)
On October 6, 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau’s International Trade Management Division (“ITMD” or “Census Bureau”) published an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“ANPRM”) seeking public comments regarding standard and routed export transactions. [FN/1] The comment period will end on December 5, 2017. The Census Bureau is particularly interested in comments regarding the definition of a routed export transaction and the responsibilities of parties in routed export transactions.

The Census Bureau stated that it is seeking comments on the clarity, usability, and any other information related to routed export matters. The ANPRM specifically lists ten suggested questions to consider: opinions on the clarity of definitions of a routed export; should the Bureau modify the list of data elements in 15 CFR §30.3(e)(1) and (e)(2); do the Foreign Trade Regulations (“FTR”) clearly communicate carrier’s responsibilities in routed transactions; what data elements under the Automated Export System (“AES”) filing should be assigned to which party, the United States Party in Interest (“USPPI”) or U.S authorized agent; and general questions on how the Census Bureau can clarify the rules and responsibilities of routed export transactions.

This ANPRM is a striking reminder of a proposed rule that the Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”) published in 2014. [FN/2] Under the BIS proposed rule, BIS asked for public comments to help clarify the parties’ responsibilities under the Export Administration Regulation (“EAR”) in a routed export transaction. BIS’s goal for the proposed rule was to resolve the perceived differences with the Census Bureau’s definition of routed export transactions, decrease exporter confusion when determining whether to classify a transaction as a routed export transaction, and to clarify what the respective rights and responsibilities of each party are under the EAR. BIS published the proposed rule for public comments on February 6, 2014, but the rule is still in the “proposed rule stage.” Hopefully BIS will publish the final rule soon, and along with the Census Bureau’s new rule, there should be a better understanding of the rules and responsibilities surrounding routed export transactions. 

If you need assistance with preparing or submitting comments, feel free to contact us.

Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR): Request for Public Comments Regarding Standard and Routed Export Transactions, 82 FR 46739 (proposed Oct. 6, 2017).
Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Agenda View Rule “Clarification of the Definition of a Routed Export Transaction,” (lasted visited Oct. 6, 2017).

10. Gary Stanley’s ECR Tip of the Day
(Source: Defense and Export-Import Update; available by subscription from
* Author: Gary Stanley, Esq., Global Legal Services, PC, (202) 352-3059,

The U.S. Department of State’s Office of Regional Security and Arms Transfer (RSAT) has created an excellent resource webpage, Third Party Transfer Process Step-by-Step, when a non-U.S. government seeks to sell, transfer (permanently or even temporarily for repair), change the end-use, or dispose of U.S.-origin equipment acquired via a U.S. Government security assistance program such as Foreign Military Sales (FMS), Excess Defense Articles (EDA), or Military Assistance Program (MAP). This process applices to all items acquired through a USG security assistance program, even items that have transitioned to the “600 series” or dual-use items. Contractors to non-U.S. governments (including MRO and surplus disposal firms) need to be familiar with this process to ensure their governmental clients have U.S. authorization to retransfer or dispose of the controlled items they are receiving, or else they risk becoming embroiled in bilateral governmental disputes over their clients’ compliance with this process.

11. R.C. Burns: “Squid Pro Quo: CBP May Ban Imports from Chinese Factories with Nork Workers”

Export Law Blog
. Reprinted by permission.)
* Author: R. Clifton Burns, Esq., Bryan Cave LLP, Wash DC,
, 202-508-6067).
Customs and Border Protection, a federal agency not particularly known for its ability to analyze legal questions and follow the law, has apparently issued a statement that it will block imports of goods which were produced with any North Korean labor even though the North Korean workers were employed outside North Korea. The agency position arises from press reports that North Korean workers were employed in seafood processing plants in China that shipped salmon, squid, and cod to U.S. stores, including Walmart and ALDI.
Executive Order 13570, promulgated in 2011, prohibited “the importation into the United States, directly or indirectly, of any goods, services, or technology from North Korea.” Section 510.201(c) of OFAC’s North Korea Sanctions Regulations prohibits any and all transactions that would violate Executive Order 13570 and thereby also effectively prohibits the import of goods “from North Korea” into the United States without an OFAC license. Certainly, if the squid in question were being processed in North Korea itself, the unlicensed import of the squid into the United States would violate OFAC’s rules.
But nothing in the rules or Executive Order 13570 prohibit the import of items made by North Koreans outside North Korea.  Although the North Korean Sanctions Regulations do not define “North Korea,” Section 4(d) of the Executive Order does, and that definition therefore controls.  The Executive Order defines “North Korea” as “the territory of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Government of North Korea.” It does not define North Korea to include any location where a North Korean, who is not a member of the Nork Government, just happens to be working. An item imported from China does not magically become an item from North Korea because a private Nork citizen in China touched it somewhere along the way.
This, of course, is basic Sanctions 101 and applies to all sanctions regimes. An item made in France does not come from Iran because a private Iranian citizen is employed in the French factory that produces the item. I understand the policy reasons for not wanting to import items made with Nork slave labor in China, as the wages earned by these workers simply go back into Kim Jong Un’s XXXL pockets. But a new legal framework needs to be put in place to accomplish that result.
