German BAFA Publishes Guidance on Export Control in Science and Research
(Source: German BAFA, 5 Jul 2019.) [Excerpts.]
This publication is aimed at professors, scientists and scientific staff at universities and non-university research institutions as well as representatives of these organizations working in the field of “export control and research activities”. It deals, in particular, with the rights and obligations that apply in this area. While scientific freedom is enshrined in the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany (“Grundgesetz”), research activities must nevertheless comply with the provisions of export control.
The publication was created with the cooperation of organizations including the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH, the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, the Leibniz Institute DSMZ, the Robert Koch Institute and the Technical University of Berlin. BAFA is grateful for their participation.
We should point out that this publication cannot cover all possible aspects of the subject matter and therefore does not claim to be exhaustive. Reading this publication does not relieve you of the responsibility of reviewing export control regulations. However, it does offer wide-ranging advice, especially with regard to finding relevant information and means of communicating with BAFA.

Brinkwire: “Two Charged in Florida in Massive International Arms Smuggling Scheme”

(Source: Brinkwire, 6 Jul 2019) [Excerpts.]
Homeland Security Department officials announced at a news conference on Friday that authorities seized 5,300 firearms and components, many of them AR-15 rifles.  
More than two dozen people have been arrested in Argentina, Brazil and the US as part of Operation Patagonia Express.  In Miami, a criminal complaint charges 60-year-old John James Peterson and 67-year-old Brunella Zuppone with playing key roles in the smuggling scheme.  They were arrested on Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to violate and attempted violations of the Arms Export Control Act and International Traffic in Arms Regulations.  In addition to the rifles and parts, authorities seized 156 handguns, 30,000 rounds of ammunition, 167 explosives and 15 silencers.  According to the complaint and other court documents, Peterson and Zuppone illegally exported without a required license from the US Department of State, to the Argentine arms traffickers, thousands of AR-15 assault rifle parts.  …
The weapons were bought in Florida at licensed firearms shops or gun shows, and then illegally shipped to South America, where arms traffickers would sell them to streets gangs in Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil, reported Bradenton Herald.   The operation to crack down on the weapons smugglers was launched a year ago after US Customs and Border Protection intercepted a parcel containing gun parts at a mail-sorting facility in Florida.  …

The Commercial Appeal: “Can FedEx Beat the U.S. Department of Commerce in Court? Case Tests Familiar Question”
(Source: The Commercial Appeal, 8 Jul 2019.) [Excerpts.]
How much responsibility should FedEx and other carriers bear for customers making illegal shipments?
The Memphis logistics giant’s lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Commerce over export restrictions brings that question, a familiar one among those in the export business, to the forefront.
In June, FedEx filed a lawsuit seeking to stop the Department of Commerce from enforcing certain regulations against it. Specifically, the “Entity List” that’s part of Export Administration Regulations (EAR) restricts U.S. firms from doing business with listed companies. FedEx says that places “an impossible burden” on common carriers like itself. …

NRC: “University Needs to Better Understand Dangers of Research”
NRC, 8 Jul 2019.) [Excerpts; Unofficial translation by Alexander Witt of Full Circle Compliance.]
The University of Kyoto hasn’t taken on any more money from the Ministry of Defence since Japan multiplied its expenditure on defence research. In Germany, some 20 universities have signed a so-called civil clause in which they promise to carry out only civilian research – not military. Oxford University refuses new research funds from the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, after a debate started in the United Kingdom about the possible leakage of vital knowledge to (the army of) China. …

Reuters: “Supply-chain pain: South Korea Chipmakers and Their Suppliers Seek to Bypass Tokyo Curbs”
(Source: Reuters, 8 Jul 2019.) [Excerpts.]
South Korean chipmakers and Japanese chemical suppliers caught in the midst of a sudden escalation of a bilateral diplomatic dispute are scrambling to circumvent tightened export controls imposed by Tokyo, industry executives said.
Japan said last week it would stop preferential treatment for shipments of the three materials to South Korea, requiring exporters to gain permission each time they want to ship, which takes around 90 days.
The curbs apply to three materials where Japan is dominant: photoresists, used to transfer circuit patterns onto semiconductor wafers; hydrogen fluoride, used as an etching gas in the chipmaking process and fluorinated polyimides, used in smartphone displays. …

WorldECR: “Senators Challenge Pompeo Over Boeing’s China Satellites”
(Source: WorldECR, Jul 2019.) [Excerpts.]
Two US senators have written to the US Secretary of State voicing their concerns regarding Boeing’s alleged role in the construction of satellites bound for China, allegedly part of an effort connecting ‘Chinese soldiers on contested outposts in the South China Sea, strengthen police forces against social unrest and make sure that state messaging penetrates far and wide.’
The allegations about the satellites surfaced in a Wall Street Journal article published in late April, entitled, ‘China exploits fleet of US satellites to strengthen police and military power.’ …

J.A. Robinson: “The Export Proforma Invoice: Validity, Acceptance and Price”

(Source: Shipping Solutions, 8 Jul 2019.) [Excerpts.]
* Author: Joseph A. Robinson, International Trade Consultant, JRobinson.Global@gmail.com.
In a previous article, I outlined 15 steps an exporter should follow when responding to an international sales inquiry. These steps help ensure you respond with a sales proposal, quote or proforma invoice that will maximize your chance of a successful export transaction.
In this article, I discuss two of those steps in more depth.
The Importance of an Expiration Date
Make sure your sales proposal or proforma invoice includes a statement that clearly states that both the price and terms of your offer are valid for a given period, such as 60 days. Be sure to state when that time period begins. I recommend using the date of the proposal as the beginning of the validity period. …
