. Commerce/Census: “Tips on How to Resolve AES Fatal Errors”

(Source: census@subscriptions.census.gov, 21 May 2018.)
When a shipment is filed to the AES, a system response message is generated and indicates whether the shipment has been accepted or rejected.  If the shipment is accepted, the AES filer receives an Internal Transaction Number (ITN) as confirmation.  However, if the shipment is rejected, a Fatal Error notification is received. 

To help you resolve AES Fatal Errors, here are some tips on how to correct the most frequent errors that were generated in AES for this month. 

Fatal Error Response Code:  643
  – Narrative: Quantity 2 Must Be Greater Than Zero
  – Reason: The Schedule B/HTS number reported requires a second Quantity to be reported and the Quantity 2 is missing or reported as zero.   
  – Resolution: Quantity 2 must be greater than zero.
Verify the Quantity 2, correct the shipment and resubmit.
Fatal Error Response Code:  649
  – Narrative: Quantity 1 Cannot Exceed Shipping Weight
  – Reason:  Shipping Weight is reported in kilograms.  When the Unit of Measure 1 requires kilograms, the first net quantity (Quantity 1) cannot exceed the Shipping Weight.  Ensure the Shipping Weight includes the weight of the packaging materials.  
  – Resolution: The first net quantity (Quantity 1) in kilograms cannot exceed the Shipping Weight in kilograms.
Verify the Quantity 1 and Shipping Weight, correct the shipment and resubmit.

For a complete list of Fatal Error Response Codes, their reasons, and resolutions, see Appendix A – Commodity Filing Response Messages.

It is important that AES filers correct Fatal Errors as soon as they are received in order to comply with the Foreign Trade Regulations.  These errors must be corrected prior to export for shipments filed predeparture and as soon as possible for shipments filed postdeparture but not later than five calendar days after departure.

For further information or questions, contact the U.S. Census Bureau’s Data Collection Branch.

. DHS/CBP Posts Notice on Submitting Imports of Products Excluded from Duties on Imports of Steel or Aluminum

(Source: CSMS #18-000352, 21 May 2018.)
On March 19, 2018, the Department of Commerce (DOC) published in the Federal Register (FR) the process for parties to submit requests for exclusions from Presidential Proclamations 9704 and 9705 on Adjusting Imports of Steel and Aluminum into the United States under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962. See 83 FR 12106.
The functionality described below for the Importer Additional Declaration Field will be available in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) as of June 1, 2018. For any exclusions approved by DOC prior to June 1, 2018, importers may submit a Post Summary Correction (PSC) on or after June 1, 2018 to request a refund on applicable previous imports of excluded products, as described in the additional information section below.
Instructions on submitting entries to CBP of steel and aluminum products granted exclusions by DOC from the Presidential Proclamations are as follows:
Importers and filers importing products granted an exclusion should submit the product exclusion number based on the last six digits of the product exclusion docket number at Regulations.gov. The product exclusion number should be submitted in the Importer Additional Declaration Field (54 record) of the entry summary data, based on the following format:
  – For excluded steel mill articles = STLXXXXXX
  – For excluded aluminum articles = ALUXXXXXX
XXXXXX represent the last six digits of the Regulations.gov docket number; do not include spaces or special characters, such as hyphens.
Example: If a steel exclusion is granted under product exclusion docket number BIS-2018-0009-9002, the importer/filer should submit the exclusion number STL099002 (i.e. STL plus the last six digits of the docket number).
Please refer to the Importer’s Additional Declaration Detail (Input 54-Record) of the CBP and Trade Automated Interfaces Requirements (CATAIR) Manual for further guidance. The CATAIR document can be found here.
Only products from importer(s) designated in the product exclusion approved by the DOC are eligible for the exclusion from the Section 232 measures.
Steel importers are reminded to submit mill certificates with their import data as required by 19 CFR 141.89
Do not submit the corresponding Chapter 99 HTS number for the Section 232 duties when the product exclusion number is submitted.
Exclusions granted by DOC are retroactive on imports to the date the request for exclusion was posted for public comment at Regulations.gov.
To request an administrative refund for previous imports of excluded products granted by DOC, importers may file a PSC and provide the product exclusion number in the Importer Additional Declaration Field.
Once products are excluded from the Section 232 measures, importers may claim Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) or African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) duty preferences on GSP and AGOA-eligible goods. If importers did not receive GSP or AGOA duty preferences on previous imports, and those imports are now covered by a retroactive exclusion, importers may request a refund of the duties subject to GSP or AGOA preferences through a PSC.
If the entry has already liquidated, importers may protest the liquidation.
For more information about submitting Post Summary Corrections, see Section 11 of the ACE Entry Summary Business Process. The ACE Entry Summary Business Process Document can be found here.
For more information, please refer to the March 19, 2018 FR notice on requesting product exclusions. Questions related to Section 232 entry filing requirements should be emailed to traderemedy@cbp.dhs.gov. Questions from the importing community concerning ACE rejections should be referred to their Client Representative.

. CNBC: “Mnuchin Declares US-China Trade War ‘on Hold’ as Talks Progress

CNBC, 20 May 2018.) [Excerpts.]
The U.S. trade war with China is “on hold” after the world’s largest economies agreed to drop their tariff threats while they work on a wider trade agreement, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Sunday.
Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, said the agreement reached by Chinese and American negotiators on Saturday set up a framework for addressing trade imbalances in the future.
“We are putting the trade war on hold. Right now, we have agreed to put the tariffs on hold while we try to execute the framework,” Mnuchin said in a television interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
On Saturday, Beijing and Washington
said they would keep talking about measures under which China would import more energy and agricultural commodities from the United States to close the $335 billion annual U.S. goods and services trade deficit with China.
During an initial round of talks this month in Beijing, Washington demanded that China reduce its trade surplus by $200 billion. No dollar figure was cited in the countries’ joint statement on Saturday. …

Courthouse News, 18 May 2018.)
The attorney for a Chinese woman convicted of trying to send a $50 million missile-firing drone and jet fighter engines to China, asked the 11
th Circuit on Friday to overturn her conviction claiming that there is no substantial evidence to incriminate her.
Wenxia Man, a Chinese immigrant who settled in California, was sentenced in 2016 to more than four years in prison after being found guilty of conspiracy and of engaging in illegal brokering activities.
The U.S. requires a license for the exportation of arms, munitions, and other implements of war and defense to foreign countries.  In 1989, the U.S. entered an embargo against China that prohibits the export of any defense article and weapons to that nation.
According to court documents, Man acted as a broker to negotiate and arrange the sale of defense articles and technical data from March 2011 until about June 2013 without obtaining a license or approval from the U.S. Department of State.
Man, a San Diego resident, purportedly worked with Chinese national Xinsheng Zhang, who she referred to as a “technology spy” and was connected to the Chinese military to copy items obtained from other countries.
The indictment said that Man and Zhang solicited price quotations for jet fighter engines, drones and technical data for each of the defense articles from persons that they believed were vendors of military equipment in the United States.
Man and Zhang discussed with these vendors that the military equipment would be shipped through third countries in order to avoid the arms embargo against China, the indictment says.
On Friday, attorney Kevin Schreiner asked the three-judge panel to revoke the conviction because there is “insufficient evidence” that indicates that his client committed a violation of the Arms Export Control Act.
He claimed that Man had no criminal background, and that there was no indication that she was involved in any illegal activity
  “The government did not show sufficient evidence of conspiracy,” Schreiner said.
U.S. Attorney Ben Greenberg, who appeared on behalf of the United States, said that there was a clear conspiracy between Man and Zhang.
Greenberg argued that the many emails and phone calls that Man had with an undercover agent from the Department of Homeland Security, who was posing as a U.S. arms supplier, clearly show that she was trying to import weapons to China.
  “The fact that they kept changing the agreement doesn’t change the fact that it was a conspiracy,” Greenberg said.
Schreiner countered by saying that Man and Zhang agreed to negotiate an agreement that never became effective.
  “Zhang followed a typical pattern where he would inquire about jet engines and weapons, but there was never an agreement between him and Man,” Schreiner said.
But, “they got to an agreement together,” U.S. Circuit Judge William Pryor said. “Man was aware that the proposals were illegal,” he added.
Schreiner argued that Zhang was never satisfied with Man’s offers, and that there was never any evidence to show that they got to an agreement.
According to South Florida’s Sun Sentinel newspaper, during Man’s trial U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom ordered her to receive mental health treatment during and after her imprisonment of four years and two months.
However, even though there was evidence that Man had mental health issues, the judge did not believe that it played an important role in her crime, the SuSentinel reported.
The panel did not say when a final decision would be made on the case.

Reuters, 21 May 2018.) [Excerpts.]
The United States on Monday demanded Iran make sweeping changes – from dropping its nuclear program to pulling out of the Syrian civil war – or face severe economic sanctions as the Trump administration hardened its approach to Tehran.
Iran dismissed Washington’s ultimatum and one senior Iranian official said it showed the United States is seeking “regime change” in Iran.
Weeks after President Donald Trump pulled out of an international nuclear deal with Iran, his administration threatened to impose “the strongest sanctions in history,” and vowed to “crush” Iranian operatives abroad, setting Washington and Tehran further on a course of confrontation.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanded sweeping changes that would force Iran effectively to reverse the recent spread of its military and political influence through the Middle East to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
  “The sting of sanctions will only grow more painful if the regime does not change course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen for itself and the people of Iran,” Pompeo said in his first major speech since becoming secretary of state.
  “These will be the strongest sanctions in history by the time we are done,” he added. …
Pompeo said if Iran made major changes, the United States was prepared to ease sanctions, re-establish full diplomatic and commercial relations and support the country’s re-integration into the international economic system. …

11. Export Compliance Journal: “Export Compliance Due Diligence with Corporate Acquisitions”

, 16 May 2018.
Whether diversifying or sharpening focus, in the normal course of business companies decide to buy other companies.
The emphasis in that decision will have been in the areas of sales performance, product appeal, and market penetration. All well and good, but in defense trade acquisitions there are additional legal responsibilities and liabilities involved-those surrounding export control compliance.
The responsibility for compliance with U.S. regulations raises many questions and considerations that need to be answered, both before and after an acquisition is made. As well as its products and infrastructure, any ITAR or EAR violations, settlements, penalties, disclosures, and enforcement actions, such as they might be, are acquired in the purchase.
These considerations are not trivial, and are as much a part of the viability of the deal as products and profitability. Many questions are raised. What export controls have been applicable for the company? Has the company been compliant with these controls? Is the company registered with the Department of Defense Trade Controls? If they are not registered, how has its ITAR export compliance been managed?
Key question to ask: where does a company fall on the export compliance spectrum?


A presentation at SIA Spring 2018 clarified many of the questions and concerns involved. If the company being acquired has been managing an effective compliance program, with a formalized export control policy, sound export control procedures, license management, documentation, and reporting, then all involved will already be seeing eye-to-eye. If the target has not been getting licenses for its USML or CCL exports-or, depending on the rigor of its policies, even if it has-then the process of acquisition can or will include a mass of voluntary self-disclosures and possible penalties for violations. Has the company been screening for restricted parties? Is it already subject to an enforcement action or current monetary penalties?
If the company making the purchase is asking these questions, that recommends that it operates a robust compliance regime itself and will be integrating the company being purchased into its own programs to ensure compliance success. Any existing required notices and authorization transfers have to be handled and, on review of the target company’s history, the necessary voluntary self-disclosures have to be filed.
Getting to the “root” of potential export violations 


Voluntary self-disclosure analysis has to be a ‘root cause’ analysis. In other words, “Get the facts. Calibrate the root cause.” There are guidelines for Voluntary Self-Disclosure in ITAR §127.12-who is involved? What happened and why? How was the violation discovered? What remedial measures will be taken?
Root cause analysis means getting down to what really drove the error to occur, rather than only the casual effects seen. The effort is not one of “putting out fires.” It is peeling back the layers of symptoms to reveal the true problem. Examples of root causes for violations are failure to screen parties against restricted lists, poor recordkeeping, lack of training, failure to notify involved parties, failure to comply with license conditions, and so forth. For any violation that is discovered, there will be both mitigating circumstances and aggravating circumstances to detail, corrective actions to document, and sustainment activities to recommend.

Alexander Pope (21 May 1688 – 30 May 1744) was an 18th-century English poet. He is best known for his satirical verse, his translation of Homer and for his use of the heroic couplet. He is the second-most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations after Shakespeare.)
  – “Be not the first by whom the new are tried, Nor yet the last to lay the old aside.”
  – “Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll; charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.”
Monday is Punday.
* My girlfriend told me she was leaving me because I keep pretending to be a Transformer. I said, “No, wait! I can change!”
* Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.
* Yesterday I accidentally swallowed some food coloring. The doctor says I’m OK, but I feel like I’ve dyed a little inside.
