CSMS# 19-000117, 11 Mar 2019.)

Please join U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday, March 15, 2019 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST, for a webinar update on Importer Security Filing -5 (ISF-5) Enforcement. ISF-5 Enforcement goes into effect on Friday, March 15, 2019 per CSMS# 19-000063. This webinar will cover the Final Rule that was effective on May 14, 2018, and expanded the definition of Importer Security Filing (ISF) for certain types of shipments including Freight Remaining On Board (FROB) as well as Transportation and Exportation (T&E) and Immediate Exportation (IE) in-bond movements. These changes were necessary to ensure that the ISF Importer included parties that have a commercial interest in the cargo and have best access to the required data. CBP encourages all ocean carriers, NVOCCs, customs brokers, and importers to attend this webinar to understand their obligations as the ISF Importer and comply with these requirements before full enforcement begins. Those parties who do not comply expose themselves to cargo holds and liquidated damages. There will be ample time for Q&A during the webinar.

Treasury/OFAC, 11 Mar 2019.) [Excerpts.] 
 
Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated Evrofinance Mosnarbank, a Moscow-based bank that is jointly owned by Russian and Venezuelan state-owned companies.  As the Treasury has continued to escalate the use of sanctions against the illegitimate regime of former President Nicolas Maduro, the net assets of Evrofinance Mosnarbank (Evrofinance) bank grew over 50 percent during 2018.  Today’s action, taken pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13850, targets a foreign financial institution that has materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. (PdVSA), which is itself an entity that has long been a vehicle for corruption, embezzlement, and money laundering by Maduro and his cronies.  PdVSA, which was designated for operating in the oil sector of Venezuela on January 28, 2019, is a Venezuelan state-owned oil company. … 
 
As a result of today’s 
action, all property and interests in property of this entity, and of any entities that are owned, directly or indirectly, 50 percent or more by this entity, that are in the United States or in the possession or control of U.S. persons are blocked and must be reported to OFAC.  OFAC’s regulations generally prohibit all dealings by U.S. persons or within (or transiting) the United States that involve any property or interests in property of blocked or designated persons.

Army Technology: “National Politics Trumps European Arms Cooperation”

(Source: 
Army Technology, 11 Mar 2019.) [Excerpts.] 
 
It started with the best of intentions. The governments of France, Germany and, to some extent, the United Kingdom, wanted to reduce their industrial dependency on the US arms industry.
 
Back in the summer of 2018, Washington’s refusal to let France sell the Scalp missile (also known as the Storm Shadow by the British armed forces) to Egypt was a painful reminder of the US influence over supposedly sovereign exports of European weapon systems.
 
In accordance with the International Trade in Arms Regulation (ITAR), the U.S. is able to veto such sales whenever U.S.-made components are involved, as indeed they were with the Scalp missile. … 
 
In a bid to uphold their strategic autonomy, some European powers have sought to find a way to circumvent such arms trade agreements.
 

To this end, over the past decade, France and Germany have pooled their resources on two major projects: a) the Main Ground Combat System, a next-generation battle tank developed by KNDS holding, and; b) the Future Combat Air System, a new fighter jet, jointly produced by French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation and Airbus to replace the Eurofighter and the Rafale by 2040. …

Citizen Truth: “Germany Extends Saudi Arms Ban While U.S. Looks to Relax Regulations” 

(Source: 
Citizen Truth, 9 Mar 2019.) [Excerpts.] 
 
Germany is extending its arms sales ban on Saudi Arabia but only until the end of March.
 
Germany first announced its decision to impose a ban on arms sales to oil-rich Saudi Arabia last October, amid the Yemen War and rising controversies surrounding the mysterious death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered in the Saudi Consulate office in Istanbul, Turkey. … 
 
Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier 
saidthe unilateral ban imposed on Saudi Arabia has harmed Germany’s defense sector, calling for a standard European policy. … 
 

The Trump administration is proposing a draft that relaxes regulations governing arms sales. The proposal would allow arms companies exporting certain arms such as semi-automatic firearms and sniper rifles to bypass the current requirement to register with the U.S. State Department. …

Forbes: “Huawei’s Lawsuit Exposes Inconvenient Truths Facing Global Business”

(Source: 
Forbes, 8 Mar 2019.) [Excerpts.] 
 
Huawei has mounted a stinging counterattack against Washington. 
 
On the legal front, the Shenzhen-based tech giant is 
suing the U.S. government for banning its equipment from America’s telecom landscape on the grounds that the action is “unconstitutional.” And more broadly, on the public relations front, Huawei’s counter-offensive appears to be achieving some success.
 
In an attempt to persuade Washington’s allies to ignore U.S. warnings and reject requests to block Huawei from building 5G networks, the Chinese firm has turned Washington’s accusations upside down. The new narrative: Huawei is safe and the 
real threat is Washington, which for decades has had a global monopoly on cyber-espionage throughout the world’s telecom infrastructure.
At the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Guo Ping, one of Huawei’s rotating chairmen, doubled down on this message by stating U.S. officials have no evidence to back their claims, and then reminded the audience of Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency subcontractor, who had revealed many of the agency’s data gathering programs.
 
The U.K. and Germany, arguably two of America’s most important allies, appear to be ready to allow Huawei’s equipment to be used in building their countries’ 5G infrastructure, provided safeguards are in place to assure cybersecurity can be maintained. …

South China Morning Post: “Trade War Is Killing Overseas Investment by Chinese, U.S. Tech Companies, Analysts Say”

(Source: 
South China Morning Post, 11 Mar 2019.) [Excerpts.] 
 
Efforts by the United States to block Chinese access to its latest technology is weighing on cross-border investment in both countries as tensions over trade and technology policies have escalated between the superpowers in the past year.
 
The stand-off between the world’s two largest economies could ultimately cause a long-term split in future research and development between rival tech leaders based in Shenzhen and Silicon Valley, according to analysts and market observers. … 
 
One area of uncertainty for the technology industry is how the US will implement new export control legislation that targets “emerging and foundational technologies”, … 
 
  “Current debates indicate that some European leaders would like/are considering reforms in other areas as well, including export controls for dual use and critical technologies, data security and privacy rules, procurement rules and competition policy.” …

COMMCOMMENTARY

 
* Author: Derek Scissors, Resident Scholar, American Enterprise Institute (AEI), 
derek.scissors@aei.org
 
The U.S. is finalizing regulations concerning which technologies to protect from unwanted foreign access. Aggressive restrictions protect national security more effectively but interfere with commercial cooperation and may hurt the economy.
 
Despite this drawback, aggressive restrictions are the better option. China is becoming more dependent on innovation for growth but still inhibits competition in many sectors, discouraging innovation. It will therefore continue to rely on acquisition, coercion, and theft of foreign technology. In particular, the U.S. should emphasize protection of fast-changing sectors with rapid market entry and exit, where China’s own choices mean it will fall short.

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

Correction: DDTC’s FAQ on VIII(a)(11) is Obsolete
(Source: Editor)
 
In last Friday’s Daily Bugle, at Item #17, we reprinted an FAQ from DDTC’s ”
ITAR / USML FAQs“, which referred to USML VIII(a)(11) as if it were a current ITAR section. That section of the ITAR was deleted on November 21, 2016, by 
81 FR 83126.  We apologize for not verifying the currency of DDTC’s FAQ, and we thank Bryce Bittner of Textron for noticing and calling it to our attention.

Chuck Norris (Carlos Ray Norris; born March 10, 1940, is an American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, he won many martial artist championships, and founded his own school of fighting, Chun Kuk Do. Norris appeared in action films such as 
Way of the Dragon, and has written several books, with subject matter including martial arts, exercise, philosophy, politics, Christian religion, western novels, and biography. He was twice a New York Times best-selling author.)
 – “A lot of people give up just before they’re about to make it. You never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one.”
 

Torquato Tasso (11 Mar 1544 – 25 Apr 1595; was an Italian poet of the 16th century, best known for his poem 
Gerusalemme Liberata (Jerusalem Delivered), in which he depicts a highly imaginative version of the combats between Christians and Muslims during the Siege of Jerusalem
at the end of the First Crusade.)
