U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently launched the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 webpage as a means to provide the trade community information on TFTEA related issues. The webpage showcases news updates on trade enforcement and trade facilitation efforts in areas such as forced labor, anti-dumping countervailing duties, and the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), as well as the latest on community engagement.
 
TFTEA, as the Act is commonly referred to, is the first piece of comprehensive legislation for CBP since the Department of Homeland Security was created in 2003, designed to ensure a fair and competitive trade environment.

NWS_a16. The Medialine: “Democrats and Republicans Act to Kill Saudi Arms Deal”
(Source: The Medialine)
 
Two Democratic and two Republican senators are taking the lead in an attempt to kill a $1.5 billion military aid package for Saudi Arabia. Democrats Al Franken (D-Mn.) and Chris Murphy (D-Ct.) have joined with Republicans Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Lee (R-Ut.) to take the effort to derail the Obama administration’s plans to send Abrams tanks and sophisticated equipment to Riyadh a notch higher after a letter signed by 67 senators apparently had no impact on the president’s plans. 

The new initiative will be a joint resolution that will have considerable value in making clear the strength of opposition to the sale that represents a rare point of agreement between the parties at a time they are barely speaking to each other.  
The quartet of senators maintains that a vote on the deal can be forced per the Arms Export Control Act of 1976. Citing the poor Saudi human rights record, Sen. Paul called the proposed sale “a recipe for disaster” and escalation of the arms race in the region.  . . .

NWS_a27. ST&R Trade Report: “Defense Export Regulations Amended to Reflect Revised Definitions”

(Source: ST&R Trade Report)
 
The State Department has issued a final rule making further amendments to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations based on comments on a June 3 interim final rule that revised definitions and made other changes as part of the Export Control Reform Initiative. Effective Sept. 9, this final rule makes the following changes.
 
  – revises the definition of “retransfer” in 22 CFR 120.51 to clarify that temporary transfers to third parties and releases to same-country foreign persons are within the scope of the definitions
 
  – revises §126.16(a)(1)(iii) and §126.17(a)(1)(iii) to reflect the definitions of “reexport” and “retransfer” in the defense trade cooperation treaties with Australia and the United Kingdom, respectively, and to make appropriate revisions to the definitions of “reexport” in §120.19 and “retransfer” in §120.51 to reflect that these definitions do not apply in the treaty context
 
  – revises §126.18(d)(1) to clarify that the provisions include all foreign persons who meet the definition of “regular employee” in §120.39
 
  – revises §130.2 to ensure that the scope of the Part 130 requirements does not change due to the revised and new definitions
 
In addition, in response to public comments on the interim final rule, State has confirmed the following.
 
  – Simply allowing a foreign person in the U.S. to possess a defense article does not require authorization under the ITAR unless technical data is revealed to that person through the possession, including subsequent inspection, of the defense article, or that person is taking the defense article into an embassy.
 
  – The transfer of technical data to a foreign person is always a controlled activity that requires State Department authorization.
 
  – Theoretical or potential access to technical data is not a release.
 
  – Any release to a foreign person is a controlled event that requires authorization to all countries where that foreign person holds or has held citizenship or is a permanent resident and such authorization(s) must authorize all applicable destinations.
 
  – In circumstances where birth does not confer citizenship in the country of birth it does not confer citizenship of permanent residency in that country for purposes of the ITAR.
 
  – State will consider all circumstances surrounding any unauthorized release and will assess responsibility pursuant to its civil enforcement authority based on the relative culpability of all the parties to the transaction.
 
  – To the extent that a dual or third-country national employee of an authorized end-user, foreign signatory, or consignee acts as an authorized representative of that company, the provision of technical data by an authorized U.S. party to the foreign company through the DN/TCN employee is a reexport from the foreign company to the DN/TCN employee that may be authorized under §126.18.

COMMCOMMENTARY

COMM_a18. J. Reeves & K. Heubert: “Exporters Must Prepare for New Destination Control Statement”
(Source: R/D Alert)
 
* Authors: Johanna Reeves, Esq., 202-715-9941, jreeves@reevesdola.com; and Katherine Heubert, Esq., 202-715-9940, kheubert@reevesdola.com. Both of Reeves & Dola LLP.
 
Beginning November 15, 2016, exporters will be required to incorporate the new harmonized Destination Control Statement (“DCS”) as part of the commercial invoice for tangible exports, reexports, and retransfers of items controlled under either the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) or the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The DCS shall read as follows:
 
These items are controlled by the U.S. government and authorized for export only to the country of ultimate destination for use by the ultimate consignee or end-user(s) herein identified. They may not be resold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of, to any other country or to any person other than the authorized ultimate consignee or end-user(s), either in their original form or after being incorporated into other items, without first obtaining approval from the U.S. government or as otherwise authorized by U.S. law and regulations.
 
The State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) and the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced the harmonized DCS in Final Rules published concurrently in the Federal Register on August 17, 2016 (81 FR 54732 and 81 FR 54721, respectively).
 
Exporters should note that the final rules remove the requirement for placing the DCS on other “transportation documents” like the bill of lading, air waybill, or other shipping documents. Both rules also clarify that the DCS is only required on items exported in tangible form. In addition to updating the DCS, the DDTC Final Rule makes revisions to the ITAR to provide guidance on the use of license exemptions for the export of items subject to the EAR that are shipped with ITAR-controlled items, as well as clarifies that items subject to the EAR are not defense articles, even when exported under an ITAR authorization.
 
We anticipate industry may face an initial burden to update internal systems to apply the new DCS. The ultimate streamlining effect of a single DCS hopefully will make the effort worthwhile.

This Alert provides a brief summary of the changes made to the ITAR and EAR, but is not intended to be a substitute for reviewing the two Federal Register Notices (linked above). Companies should carefully review the new DCS requirements, in conjunction with this Alert.

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

 

*
H.L. Mencken (Henry Louis Mencken; 12 Sep 1880 – 29 Jan 1956; was an American journalist, satirist, cultural critic and scholar of American English. Known as the “Sage of Baltimore”, he is regarded as one of the most influential American writers and prose stylists of the first half of the twentieth century.)

  – “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

 
– It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.
