OGS_a34. Commerce/Census: “Tips on How to Resolve AES Response Messages”

(Source:
census@subscriptions.census.gov, 22 Apr 2019.)
 
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. Though the shipment is accepted, the filer may still receive a Verify Message, Compliance Alert, Informational Message or Warning Message along with their ITN. However, if the shipment is rejected, a Fatal Error notification is received and must be corrected to receive a valid ITN.
 
To help you take the appropriate action for the different AES Response Messages, here are some tips on how to address the most frequent messages that were generated in AES for this month.
 
Response Code: 123
 
– Narrative: Conveyance Name Missing
– Severity: Fatal
– Reason: The Conveyance Name/Carrier Name is missing when the Mode of Transportation is one that requires the Conveyance Name/Carrier Name to be reported.
– Resolution: The name of the transport conveyance must be declared on an EEI for the major modes of transportation (i.e., vessel, air, rail, truck). For Vessel shipments, declare the name of the vessel; for Air, Rail, or Truck shipments declare the carrier name. 
 
Verify the Mode of Transportation and the Conveyance Name/Carrier Name, correct the shipment and resubmit.
 
Response Code: 8W1
 
– Narrative: Shipping Weight/Quantity 1 Out of Range
– Severity: Verify
– Reason: For the reported Schedule B/HTS Number, the Shipping Weight/Quantity (1) ratio is outside of the expected range.
– Resolution: For a particular Schedule B/HTS Number declared, the shipping weight divided by the first quantity should fall within a certain parameter based on historical statistical averages for that commodity. Ratios outside this pre-determined parameter might indicate either a keying error or misclassification of the product. 
 
Verify the Shipping Weight, Quantity 1 and Schedule B/HTS Number, correct the shipment and resubmit (if necessary). If the line item is verified correct as reported, no action is necessary.

White House Decides Not to Reissue Waivers for Iran Oil Imports, Aims to “Bring Iran’s Oil Exports to Zero”
(Source:
The White House, 21 Apr 2019.)
 
Statement from the Press Secretary on Cooperation between the United States, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates on Energy and Iran Policies
 
President Donald J. Trump has decided not to reissue Significant Reduction Exceptions (SREs) when they expire in early May. This decision is intended to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, denying the regime its principal source of revenue. The United States, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, three of the world’s great energy producers, along with our friends and allies, are committed to ensuring that global oil markets remain adequately supplied. We have agreed to take timely action to assure that global demand is met as all Iranian oil is removed from the market.
 
The Trump Administration and our allies are determined to sustain and expand the maximum economic pressure campaign against Iran to end the regime’s destabilizing activity threatening the United States, our partners and allies, and security in the Middle East. The President’s decision to eliminate all SREs follows the designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, demonstrating the United States commitment to disrupting Iran’s terror network and changing the regime’s malign behavior. We welcome the support of our friends and allies for this effort.

France24: “France Under Pressure to Come Clean Over Arms Exports in Yemen War”
(Source:
France24, 20 Apr 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
France’s lucrative arms exports to the Gulf came under renewed scrutiny this week following the release of a classified report showing that the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen has made much wider use of French arms than officials in Paris acknowledge.
 
On October 3, 2018, a day after journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, never to be seen again, French President Emmanuel Macron received a highly classified intelligence note, detailing the position of French-made arms used by the Saudi-led coalition fighting a bloody war in Yemen. …
 
The sensitive issue has put France at odds with its key partner Germany, which imposed an embargo on arms exports to Riyadh in the wake of Khashoggi’s murder. The move sparked stinging criticism from Paris and London, with Macron accusing the German government of “demagoguery”.
 
In an
unusually strong-worded op-ed published on the website of Germany’s Federal Academy for Security Studies, Anne-Marie Descôtes, the French ambassador to Berlin, warned that the “unpredictability of German policy on arms export controls” carried “major consequences for [Franco-German] defense cooperation and the construction of European sovereignty”. …

An aerospace institute in Brussels is investigating exchanges and collaboration between its scientists and a major Chinese defense contractor, but management at the Belgium-based non-profit did not reveal details.
 
Professor Herman Deconinck, deputy director of the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI), said it was looking into staff members’ relations with China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (Casic), a state-owned developer of hypersonic weapons that include the DF-26 missile in service with the People’s Liberation Army. …
 
Casic is on a U.S. export control blacklist, but a German delegation with representatives from more than 40 space technology companies visited Beijing last month with a view to expanding their cooperation. …

The Washington Post: “Microsoft Worked With a Chinese Military University on AI. Does That Make Sense?”
(Source:
The Washington Post, 21 Apr 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
Technology companies have been taking flak lately for collaborating with the U.S. military – but are they helping the Chinese government expand its surveillance state at the same time? The
revelation this month that Microsoft researchers collaborated with academics at a Chinese military-run university sparked outrage from China hawks. Careful consideration would be a more prudent response.
 
The Financial Times reported April 10 that specialists at Microsoft Research Asia published three papers over the past year with co-writers affiliated with China’s National University of Defense Technology, controlled by the country’s Central Military Commission. …
 
The Trump administration’s plan to restrict technological exports to China will almost certainly mean keeping some sensitive products and services away from that country, or at least imposing licensing rules. But it could also mean barring certain types of research. The Microsoft case is interesting because it falls in exactly the gray area officials will have to confront: The United States
benefits immensely from the open exchange of ideas in AI – including access to top talent found in the most prestigious Chinese universities. Stopping up that pipeline would be a mistake. But China is also an egregious human rights offender, and using AI research for military gains is at the
core of its stated strategy. …

11. D.H. Pearson, L. Caylor & J.B. Horwitz: “Canadians to Face U.S. Liability under Helms-Burton as of May 2, 2019″

(Source: Bennett Jones, 17 Apr 2019.)
 
* Authors: Darrell H. Pearson, Esq.,
pearsond@bennettjones.com; Lincoln Caylor, Esq.,
caylorl@bennettjones.com; and Jessica B. Horwitz, Esq.,
horwitzj@bennettjones.com. All of Bennett Jones, Toronto.
 
In a reversal of long-standing U.S. policy, any person or entity with business operations or relationships in Cuba may soon face civil liability in the United States.
 
On April 17, 2019, the Trump administration announced that it would not extend the suspension of the right to bring an action under Title III of the
Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (LIBERTAD) Act of 1996, better known as the
Helms-Burton Act, beyond the end of the existing suspensions on May 1, 2019.
 
Following the expiry of the existing suspensions, any person who “traffics” in property that was confiscated by the Cuban government on or after January 1, 1959, may face liability for the full value of the confiscated property, in some cases times three. The definition of trafficking under Title III is very broad, and includes engaging in commercial activity using or otherwise benefitting from confiscated property; among other things, this could include using landing strips at airports, leasing hotels, and holding docking rights in ports. Actions under Title III of
Helms-Burton may be brought for two years after the trafficking giving rise to the action has ceased to occur.
 
High Potential for Recovery in U.S.
 
The right to bring an action under Title III of
Helms-Burton had been continuously suspended by U.S. Presidential administrations for successive six-month periods since 1996; the Trump administration began reducing the suspension periods in early 2019, with the latest suspension through May 1, 2019, being for only two weeks. Moreover, the most recent two suspensions included exceptions that allowed claims to proceed for the first time against certain entities, being those under the control of Cuban military, intelligence and security services on the U.S. State Department’s Cuba Restricted List.
 
Now that the general right to bring an action under Title III of
Helms-Burton will take effect as of May 2, 2019, much uncertainty lies ahead. While the boundaries of liability under
Helms-Burton remain to be determined by the courts, U.S. plaintiff law firms are likely to aggressively pursue these claims due to high potential recovery under the Act.
 
Canadian Protections Against Helms-Burton
 
Canadian law affords certain protections in response to
Helms-Burton. Under Canada’s
Foreign Extraterritorial Measures Act (
FEMA),
Helms-Burton judgments may not be recognized or enforced in Canadian courts. Moreover,
FEMA allows Canadians to counter-sue for losses sustained in relation to
Helms-Burton actions and judgments with the support of the Attorney General.
FEMA may also protect against disclosure of records in Canada for use in
Helms-Burton proceedings.
 
Canadians who have business operations in Cuba or relationships with Cuban entities should immediately contact Canadian legal counsel to assess their exposure and discuss strategies for mitigating potential liability.

Global banks are the poster children of sanctions violations and the importance of trade compliance. At the top of the heap is Standard Chartered Bank.
 
In a long-awaited resolution of a multi-year investigation, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC), the New York District Attorney’s (DANY), the Federal Reserve, the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) and the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) announced a number of settlement agreements in connection with SCB’s violations of Iran Sanctions Programs.
 
Under the agreements, SCB agreed with the:
  (1) Justice Department to forfeit $240 million, a fine of $480 million and to extend its existing deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) for an additional two years;
  (2) Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) to pay total penalties of $657 million; the Federal Reserve to pay penalties of $163 million; the New York Department of Financial Services to pay total penalties of $180 million; and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority to pay total penalties of $133 million; and
  (3) New York District Attorney’s Office to pay a financial penalty of $292 million and extend its DPA with DA-NY for two years.
 
The Justice Department agreed to credit a portion of these payments and reduced its fine for SCB from $480 million to $52 million, along with the $240 million forfeiture.
 

In this episode, Mike Volkov reviews the Standard Chartered Bank enforcement action and the implications of the action.

Q: I am certain that my product is not subject to the ITAR because it is clearly not within the scope of any USML categories. I am, however, uncertain about which ECCN in the EAR”s CCL would apply to my product. Do I need to submit a CJ request to DDTC to get a determination that the product is not subject to the ITAR before I submit a classification request (a CCATS) to BIS asking for a determination regarding which ECCN applies to my product?
 
A: No. As described above, one may make jurisdictional and classification self-determinations. If there is doubt about the classification status (i.e., where it is controlled on the CCL) of an item that is clearly not within the scope of the USML, then one does not need to submit a CJ request to DDTC before submitting a classification request (a CCATS) to BIS.

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

*
Charlotte Bronte (21 Apr 1816 – 31 Mar 1855; was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels became classics of English literature.)

  
– “Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.”


Henry Fielding (22 Apr 1707 – 8 Oct 1754; was an English novelist and dramatist known for his rich, earthy humor and satirical prowess, and as the author of the picaresque novel 
Tom Jones. Additionally, he holds a significant place in the history of law enforcement, having used his authority as a magistrate to found (with his half-brother John) what some have called London’s first police force, the Bow Street Runners.)


  – “There is perhaps no surer mark of folly than to attempt to correct natural infirmities of those we love.”
 
Monday is pun day:
* I’m reading an interesting book on anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down!
* I couldn’t remember how to throw a boomerang, but it came back to me.
* Q. What did the buffalo say to his son?  A. “Bison!”
