EU Council Extends Syria Sanctions by One Year

(Source: Council of the European Union, 17 May 2019.) [Excerpts.]
On 17 May 2019, the Council extended EU restrictive measures against the Syrian regime until 1 June 2020. In line with the EU strategy on Syria, the EU decided to maintain its restrictive measures against the Syrian regime and its supporters as the repression of civilian population continues.
The Council also removed 5 deceased persons from the list, as well as one entity which ceased to exist and one entity for which there were no longer grounds to keep it under restrictive measures. The list now includes 270 persons and 70 entities targeted by a travel ban and an asset freeze for being responsible for the violent repression against the civilian population in Syria, benefiting from or supporting the regime, and/or being associated with such persons or entities.
More broadly, sanctions currently in place against Syria include an oil embargo, restrictions on certain investments, a freeze of the assets of the Syrian central bank held in the EU, export restrictions on equipment and technology that might be used for internal repression as well as on equipment and technology for the monitoring or interception of internet or telephone communications. …

The Buffalo News: “Man Accused of International Gun Sales Goes to Prison”

(Source: The Buffalo News, 17 May 2019.) [Excerpts.]
A Canadian accused of international arms sales stood before a judge in Buffalo Friday and admitted his guilt.
Aydan Sin, 47, pleaded guilty to violating the Arms Export Control Act and will face a recommended sentence of up to 63 months in prison.
Sin, who appeared Friday before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara, was accused of conspiring with two other Canadians to sell 15 mini Uzi submachine guns and 40 9mm Glock pistols in 2017 to customers in Colombia and the United Arab Emirates.
Prosecutors don’t know who the intended customers were, but Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango said they requested the guns’ serial numbers be removed. …

The Drive: “Company Teases New F-16 Flight Sim After Developer Ends Up in Jail Over Buying USAF Manuals”

(Source: The Drive, 17 May 2019.) [Excerpts.]
It’s no secret that The War Zone is a fan of Eagle Dynamics’ hyper-realistic flight simulator Digital Combat Simulator World, better known as DCS World. So it’s exciting to see the company offer the first glimpse of its upcoming F-16C Block 50 module. But it now comes with an unusual added twist as one of the company’s programmers, Oleg Tishchenko, is now sitting in the Weber County Jail in Utah charged with attempting to smuggle sensitive U.S. military aircraft flight manuals related to the F-16 Viper and the F-22 Raptor back home in violation of the U.S. government’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). …
The U.S. government has charged Tishchenko with one count each of conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, violation of the Arms Export Control Act, smuggling goods from the United States, attempted violation of the Arms Export Control Act, and attempts to smuggle goods from the United States. You can find a copy of the full indictment here. All of this centers around the Russian’s purchase and attempts to purchase U.S. Air Force “Technical Order” manuals for various models of the F-16, as well as the F-22. …

The New York Times: “Infineon Denies Report It Has Suspended Huawei Shipments
(Source: The New York Times, 20 May 2019.) [Excerpts.]
German chipmaker Infineon is continuing most shipments to Huawei, it said on Monday, denying a report in Japan’s Nikkei daily that it had suspended deliveries to the Chinese telecoms firm.
Infineon, which makes power-management chips used in cars, smartphones and wind turbines, said most of its products were not covered by the U.S. export control restrictions announced by the Trump administration last Thursday.
“As of today, the great majority of products Infineon delivers to Huawei is not subject to U.S. export control law restrictions, therefore those shipments will continue,” Infineon said in a statement. …

Nikkei Asian Review: “Japan Weighs Export Controls for Cutting-Edge Tech”

(Source: Nikkei Asian Review, 20 May 2019.) [Excerpts.]
Japan is considering restricting exports of advanced technology used in such applications as artificial intelligence and robots, following the lead set by recent American measures aimed at China.
While Japanese law has a framework for keeping sensitive technology out of foreign hands, it focuses mainly on dual-use goods that can be utilized in nuclear weapons, missiles, and chemical and biological weapons, for example. The list of restricted items includes certain machine tools, electronic components and materials.
But there are advanced technologies expected to see broader use that are not covered by these curbs even if they present a security risk. While exports of certain 3D printers can be restricted via the machine tools category, “there are many other technologies that cannot be banned under our current framework,” including AI and robotics, a government source said.
The U.S. is employing export controls in its trade war with China, most recently with the addition of Huawei Technologies to a blacklist that essentially bans exports to the telecommunications giant. Washington earlier this year closed a public comment period on planned restrictions that target emerging technologies in 14 categories, including AI, biotechnology, robotics, quantum computing, 3D printing and advanced materials. …

ST&R Trade Report: “
U.S., Canada, Mexico to Terminate Steel and Aluminum Tariffs”

The U.S. announced May 17 that it will eliminate all section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum products from Canada and Mexico, which in turn will remove all retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods. However, tariffs could be reimposed if imports of these products surge.
The U.S. imposed section 232 tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum products imported from Canada and Mexico as of June 1, 2018. Those two countries responded with retaliatory tariffs on goods imported from the U.S. (
Click here
for ST&R’s web page providing full details.)
To address the problems underlying the decision to impose these tariffs, which largely have to do with the growth of production in and exports from China, a joint statement said the U.S. and Canada have agreed to implement effective measures to prevent (a) the importation of aluminum and steel that is unfairly subsidized and/or sold at dumped prices and (b) the transshipment of aluminum and steel made outside of the U.S. or Canada to the other.
In addition, the statement said, a process will be established for monitoring U.S.-Canada trade in steel and aluminum products. If imports surge meaningfully beyond historic volumes over a period of time (which was not defined), the importing country may request consultations with the exporting country. After such consultations, the importing party may impose duties of 25 percent for steel and 10 percent for aluminum with respect to the individual product(s) where the surge took place. If such measures are imposed, the exporting country agrees to retaliate only in the affected sector.
Although no official notice from Mexico was available at press time, press sources indicate that the terms above will apply to U.S.-Mexico trade in steel and aluminum products as well.

Tech Crunch: “Why Start-Ups Need to Be Careful About Export Licenses and the Huawei Ban”

(Source: Tech Crunch, 20 May 2019.) [Excerpts.]
America is the land of free trade … precisely until it is not. Through a thicket of laws and regulations, the U.S. government has broad control over what can get exported to whom, particularly in areas with sensitive technology or national security concerns. In general, those restrictions are loose, which is why startups mostly haven’t had to think about export laws.
That open world is rapidly closing though, and startups could well be the most harmed given that they have limited resources to handle these sorts of bureaucratic processes and the potential large penalty fines.
Last week, President Trump signed an executive order requiring that the Department of Commerce initiate a review of regulations and enforcement practices to ensure that U.S. entities (people and companies) don’t provide “information and communications technology or services” to a “foreign adversary.” That term was read as describing China, although nothing in the order prevents its expansion to cover other countries in the future. …

D.H. Laufman & J. Clark: “Executive Order Imposes New Compliance Obligations on Parties to Transactions Involving Information and Communications Technologies”
* Authors: David H. Laufman, Esq., 
dlaufman@wiggin.com; and Jared Clark, Esq., 
jclark@wiggin.com. Both of Wiggin & Dana LLP
On May 15, President Trump issued an Executive order declaring a national emergency with respect to the threat posed by “foreign adversaries” seeking to exploit vulnerabilities in U.S. information and communications technology infrastructure and services. The “Executive Order on Securing the Information and Communications Technology and Services Supply Chain,” which comes amidst heightened trade tensions with China, presents considerable new challenges and complications for U.S. companies dependent on Chinese information or communications technology. In particular, the order will require U.S. businesses to implement new compliance strategies as they race to adopt fifth-generation, or 5G, networking technology.
The order broadly prohibits U.S. companies from acquiring, importing, transferring, dealing in, or using any information and communications technology or service “where the transaction involves any property in which any foreign country or a national thereof has any interest,” if the Secretary of Commerce has made the following determinations: (1) the transaction involves information and communications technology or services designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied, by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of a “foreign adversary”; and (2) the transaction (a) poses an undue risk of sabotage to or subversion of the design, integrity, manufacturing, production, distribution, installation, operation, or maintenance of information and communications technology or services in the United States; (b) poses an undue risk of catastrophic effects on the security or resiliency of United States critical infrastructure or the digital economy of the United States; or (c) otherwise poses an unacceptable risk to the national security of the United States or the security and safety of United States persons. 
China is clearly the primary target of the order, though not expressly identified as such.  On the same day the order was issued, the Department of Commerce added Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. to its “Entity List” on the grounds that that Huawei “is engaged in activities that are contrary to U.S. national security or foreign policy interests.” As a result, U.S. companies are now prohibited from exporting equipment to Huawei without a license, with license applications subject to a presumptive policy of denial. In addition, the order follows and supplements a 2018 law, included in the Defense Authorization Act, that banned the U.S. government and government contractors from using equipment manufactured by Huawaei and fellow Chinese telecommunications company ZTE Corporation. Finally, the order defines “foreign adversary” as “any foreign government or foreign non-government person engaged in a long-term pattern or serious instances of conduct significantly adverse to the national security of the United States or security and safety of United States persons” – a definition that closely corresponds to U.S. Government intelligence and law enforcement assessments regarding Chinese government threats to the U.S. supply chain.
In addition to authorizing the Secretary of Commerce to block transactions of the nature described above, the order empowers the Secretary to designate specific countries and companies as “foreign adversaries” and to identify certain technologies that warrant particular scrutiny under the order.  The Secretary may also direct when and how U.S. businesses must cease using such technologies, and may establish procedures for licensing otherwise-prohibited transactions. The Secretary must publish regulations implementing these new authorities within 150 days of the order.
The ultimate impact of the order on business operations will be determined by the final form of implementing regulations and practical experience, but there is little question that the order will result in significant new compliance obligations for U.S. businesses. Even with a framework of published rules in place, regulatory uncertainty is likely to persist; like the U.S. sanctions on Russia, the order draws its legal authority in part from the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), and, if the Russia sanctions are any guide, U.S. businesses may find that compliance with the order is complicated by the fact that even the most well-intentioned rules are easier to follow in theory than in practice. At a minimum, forward-thinking U.S. businesses considering transacting with foreign companies in the information or communications technology space should begin to develop compliance processes that front-load due diligence on the ownership structures of prospective counterparties and the relationships between prospective counterparties and their home (or other foreign) governments.

On April 30th, we issued a Compliance Alert regarding the Trump administration’s intention to terminate Turkey’s designations as a beneficiary developing country under the GSP program.  Last night (May 16), President Trump issued his Presidential Proclamation ending GSP status for Turkey, effective today, May 17, 2019.   The proclamation also ended safeguard exemptions that Turkey had enjoyed for residential washers and CSPV cells.  In a second proclamation issued yesterday, President Trump restored the duty rate on steel products from Turkey from 50% to 25%, effective May 21, 2019.
We also learned today that an agreement has been reached to remove Section 232 duties from Canada and Mexico 
within the next 48 hours.  This will remove one major barrier to the newly negotiated USMCA agreement being ratified by all three countries.  For more information on all of these issues and their developments, please see the Compliance Alert at

T.M. Polino, D.R. Hamill & D. Salkeld: “Additional Duties Proposed on Another $300 Billion of China Products”

Update on Product Exclusions and Enforcement of List 3 Duty Increase
As President Donald Trump threatened last weekend – just days after the Section 301 tariff on List 3 products was increased from 10 percent to 25 percent following a breakdown in trade negotiations between the United States and China – the Administration on Monday released a fourth list of Chinese-origin products to be subject to additional duties. For these tariffs to become effective, the US Trade Representative will need to publish a final notice after public comment and hearing.
The United States and China have been engaged in protracted negotiations over the Chinese government’s acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation that the Trump Administration has found to be unreasonable and burdensome to US commerce.
To date, the President has used his authority under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 three times to levy a 25 percent retaliatory tariff on 6830 subheading categories of imported Chinese high-tech and consumer goods valued at $250 billion per year. Although List 3, alone valued at $200 billion, had originally set an additional duty rate at 10 percent, that rate was
increased to 25 percent effective 12:01 A.M. May 10, further straining the bilateral talks.
New Products for China Tariffs
Moreover, after China allegedly “retreated from specific commitments made in previous rounds” and increased its own tariffs against US goods, the USTR officially
proposed a fourth list of goods valued at nearly $300 billion. This 135-page List 4 would comprise 3805 categories of goods including cellphones and other electronic devices, agricultural products like cheese, toys, apparel, home goods, shoes, sporting goods, chemicals, and child safety seats.
If this proposal is accepted, all Chinese imports excluding certain pharmaceuticals, medical products, rare earth metals, and minerals will be subject to a 25 percent extra levy.
Before List 4 can take effect, the proposal will undergo a public comment period and hearing similar to those for Lists 1 through 3. The dates are:
  – June 10: Deadline to request to appear at hearing
  – June 17: Deadline to submit pre-hearing comments
  – June 17: Public hearing at USTR
  – June 24: Deadline to submit post-hearing rebuttal comments (due 7 days after the final day of hearings).
USTR has requested that comments focus on:
– The specific tariff subheadings to be subject to increased duties, including whether the subheadings listed in the proposal should be retained or removed, or whether subheadings not currently on the list should be added;
– The level of the increase, if any, in the rate of duty;
The appropriate aggregate level of trade to be covered by additional duties;
– Whether imposing increased duties on a particular product would be practicable or effective to obtain the elimination of the concerned Chinese acts, policies, and practices; and
– Whether imposing additional duties on a particular product would cause disproportionate economic harm to US interests, including small- or medium-size businesses and consumers.
President Trump has indicated his desire to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at a G20 summit in Osaka, Japan in late June, which may affect the implementation of List 4. However, absent progress on negotiations, USTR could publish the final version of List 4 as soon as July with an effective date shortly thereafter if it moves as fast as it did to implement earlier tariffs.
A combined list of the products covered by Section 301 Lists 1, 2, 3, and 4 is available
Product Exclusions
Meanwhile, USTR published its
fourth notice of product exclusions for List 1. The excluded goods, mostly machinery, include outboard motor engines for boats, certain fork lifts, ATM circuit boards, and pressure valves. It remains unknown whether a process for importers to request an exclusion of specific products would accompany List 4 as it did for Lists 1 and 2, and as is expected to be announced before the end of the month for List 3. The USTR confirmed that List 3 will have an exclusion process only after the duty rate was increased from 10 percent to 25 percent.
List 3 Increased Tariff Rate Effective Date
Furthermore, following an updated
CSMS message, USTR
published in the Federal Register a notice stipulating that List 3 goods already in transit from China before May 10 and entered prior to June 1 will be subject to the 10 percent duty rate rather than the higher 25 percent rate. Goods exported and entered on or after May 10 will be assessed the 25 percent rate, as will all goods entered on or after June 1, regardless of export date.

Nancy Astor (Nancy Witcher Langhorne Astor; 19 May 1879 – 2 May 1964; was an American-born British politician and the first female Member of Parliament (MP) to take her seat. Astor was an American citizen who moved to England at age 26 and married Waldorf Astor. He succeeded to the peerage and entered the House of Lords; she then entered politics and won his former seat in Plymouth in 1919, becoming the first woman to sit as an MP in the House of Commons.)
“The penalty of success is to be bored by people who used to snub you.”
Honore de Balzac (20 May 1799 – 18 Aug 1850; was a French novelist and playwright. The novel sequence 
La Comédie Humaine, which presents a panorama of post-Napoleonic French life, is generally viewed as his magnum opus.)
– “Laws are spider webs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught.”
Monday is pun day:
* Two birds are sitting on a perch and one says “Do you smell fish?”
* What’s it called when you have too many aliens? Extraterrestrials.
* Want to hear a pizza joke? Never mind, it’s too cheesy.
