(Source:
Treasury/OFAC, 16 July 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), in concert with the Department of State, took action today targeting Jama’at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (JNIM), a west African terrorist group designated in September 2018, by designating a JNIM leader as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism.  Specifically, OFAC designated Bah Ag Moussa for acting for or on behalf of JNIM.  OFAC also designated Bah Ag Moussa for acting for or on behalf of JNIM leader, Iyad ag Ghali, who was designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 in February 2013. The Department of State today also designated Ali Maychou as an SDGT pursuant to E.O. 13224. …
 
As a result of today’s action, all property and interests in property of these persons, and of any entities that are owned, directly or indirectly, 50 percent or more by the designated persons, 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. …

Deutsche Welle: “EU Penalizes Turkey over Cyprus Offshore Drilling”

(Source:
Deutsche Welle, 15 July 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
The European Union agreed political and financial sanctions against Turkey on Monday as a punishment for 
Ankara’s persistence in gas drilling operations off Cyprus, despite repeated warnings from the bloc.
 
The measures announced in a statement from EU foreign ministers meeting in Brussels late Monday include:
– suspending talks on an air transport agreement
– a review of European Investment Bank lending
– a reduction of financial assistance in 2020.
 
The ministers said additional “targeted measures” were being worked on to penalize Turkey, which began talks with the bloc to join the EU in 2005.
 
In recent weeks the bloc has become increasingly frustrated with Ankara’s refusal to heed warnings after what the EU viewed as 
“illegal” gas drilling in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone.
 
Turkey does not recognize the government of the Republic of Cyprus. …

Netzpolitik.org: “EU States Unanimously Vote Against Stricter Export Controls for Surveillance Equipment”

(Source:
Netzpolitik.org, 16 July 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
The EU wants to more closely control the trade of the European surveillance industry with autocratic regimes. After two years of tough negotiations, the member states have found a “compromise”: they are against anything that could limit the trade of spyware. Germany agreed as well. … 
 
On 28 May, the UN special rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye, appealed to the international community and 
demanded a moratorium on the sale of spying technology. Everywhere in the world, journalists, activists and opposition members are being monitored with state-of-the-art technology, trade is flourishing – and global regulation is at best in its infancy.
 
With 
the same arguments, the EU Commission had already 
submitted a reform proposal in 2016 for the European control system. The items include hacking software, large data centres for data retention, IMSI catchers for monitoring demonstrations and equipment for telecommunications surveillance. …

ST&R Trade Report: “No Section 232 Import Restrictions on Uranium”

(Source:
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report, 16 July 2019.)
 
President Trump has declined to impose import restrictions on uranium despite a Department of Commerce determination that imports are threatening to impair national security.
 
In July 2018 the DOC initiated a Section 232 investigation of uranium ore, uranium concentrate, uranium hexafluoride, enriched uranium, and enriched uranium in fuel assemblies. In April 2019 the department determined that imports of these goods are threatening U.S. national security, noting that the U.S. currently imports about 93 percent of its commercial uranium (up from 85.8 percent in 2009) and that increased production by foreign state-owned enterprises have distorted global prices and made it more difficult for U.S. uranium mines to compete.
 
However, a July 12 presidential memorandum disagrees with the DOC’s determination, stating that while the report’s findings “raise significant concerns … a fuller analysis of national security considerations with respect to the entire nuclear fuel supply chain is necessary at this time.” To that end the memorandum establishes an interagency working group to develop recommendations for reviving and expanding domestic nuclear fuel production.
 
If the president had agreed with the DOC he would have had broad authority to adjust imports, including through the use of tariffs and quotas. The petitioner had requested (1) a quota that would reserve 25 percent of the U.S. market for U.S. uranium and (2) a Buy America policy for U.S. government agencies that utilize uranium.

A. Kashefi, P. Bayz & A. Josselyn: “New Development: CFIUS’s Jurisdiction has Expanded to Cover Non-Controlling Investments in Certain Industries”

akashefi@mofo.com, +1 650 813 5721, Panagiotis C. Bayz, Esq.,
akibayz@mofo.com, +1 202 887 8796, Amy S. Josselyn, Esq.,
ajosselyn@mofo.com, +1 202 572 6794, all of Morrison Foerster.
 
On August 13, 2018, the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (or FIRRMA for short) was signed into law, ushering in an unprecedented expansion in the jurisdiction of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (or more commonly known as CFIUS). As our colleagues, Chuck Comey and Jim Ryan, mentioned in an earlier article, the enactment of FIRRMA capped months of escalation in the U.S./China trade relations. The expanded jurisdiction of CFIUS may result in financing transactions becoming subject to mandatory CFIUS declaration requirements prior to closing. Investors and companies alike should therefore take CFIUS considerations into account at the outset of any fundraising effort, even if the investment is not a controlling investment and the transaction is not expected to otherwise have any direct national security implications.
 
1. Non-Controlling Investments in “Critical Technologies” 
 
Prior to the enactment of FIRRMA, CFIUS only had jurisdiction to review transactions that could result (directly or indirectly) in “control” (broadly defined to include as little as 10% voting interest) in U.S. companies or U.S. assets by a foreign-owned or controlled person. The CFIUS review regime was also voluntary; there was no requirement to notify CFIUS of a transaction prior to closing, even if that transaction fell within CFIUS’s jurisdiction. With the enactment of FIRRMA, CFIUS’s jurisdiction was expanded to include, among other things, certain non-controlling investments in U.S. businesses involving critical infrastructure, critical technologies, or sensitive data pertaining to U.S. persons. This expanded jurisdiction is expected to be fully effective by February 2020 when CFIUS issues regulations implementing various FIRRMA provisions. …
 
2. Pilot Program Industries
 
A non-controlling investment by a foreign person in an Applicable U.S. Business is not, by itself, enough to trigger the mandatory CFIUS notification requirements. The critical technology produced by the Applicable U.S. Business must be one that is used in connection with the activities of the Applicable U.S. Business in one or more of the 27 specified industries (called “pilot program industries”), or that is specifically designed by the Applicable U.S. …
 
3. Access or Influence by the Foreign Investor
 
The third prong of the critical technologies pilot program jurisdiction involves the extent to which the investment will provide the foreign person access to information regarding critical technologies or influence over the activities of the Applicable U.S. Business. …
 
4. Declaration or Notice Requirement and Review Period
 
The parties to an investment subject to the critical technologies pilot program must submit either an abbreviated declaration or a full notice to CFIUS at least 45 days prior to closing. …
 
What does this development mean for investors and companies looking to raise funds?
 
Given the potentially significant penalties if a required filing is not made, investors and companies raising funds must carefully consider the relevant facts and the above legal developments (some of which are still in progress) at the outset of a financing transaction and, together with their legal advisors, develop a plan for navigating these issues.
 
1. Know Where You Stand; Be Prepared
 
For U.S. companies looking to raise money, it would be prudent to do a preliminary CFIUS risk assessment to determine, among other things, whether the technology produced by the company would be considered “critical technology” and whether it implicates one or more pilot program industries. …
 
2. Consider the Implications With Respect to Potential Investors
 
For a U.S. company that produces critical technology used in a pilot program industry, having foreign investors is not out of the question, and there may be any number of strategic reasons why having such investors may in fact provide a net benefit to the company. However, management should accept investments from foreign investors only after having considered whether additional regulatory compliance is needed. …
 
3. Consider the Rights Being Provided to Investors
 
Some of the investor rights that would trigger a CFIUS notification requirement are rights that are commonly provided to lead investors in a financing. …
 
4. Be Careful About Existing Investors, Too
 
Finally, the new CFIUS regulations discussed above could apply to a new investment by an existing investor as well, and not only to investments by new investors. …

S. Varma, B. Connor & S. Diamond: “U.S. Government Agencies Stress the Importance of Corporate Compliance Programs Through the Issuance of Guidance Documents”

In May 2019, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) published the 
Framework for OFAC Compliance Commitments (“Framework”), which is intended to help organizations subject to U.S. jurisdiction, as well as foreign entities doing business in or with the United States, U.S. persons, or using U.S.-origin goods or services, to develop and implement an export control and economic sanctions compliance program (SCP). While acknowledging that each company’s SCP will vary depending upon a variety of company-specific and risk-based factors, OFAC has indicated that any program should include, at a minimum, the following compliance components: (1) management commitment; (2) risk assessment; (3) internal controls; (4) testing and auditing; and (5) training.
 
Although not mandated by law, OFAC has long acknowledged that the implementation of a structured SCP can be a mitigating factor in any enforcement proceeding when an export control or economic sanctions violation is discovered. And, while the existence of an SCP may not provide complete protection against any civil monetary fine, the Framework makes clear that companies that have an effective SCP at the time of an apparent violation would be viewed favorably, and could be a factor in any analysis as to whether a case is deemed “egregious.” …

Stratfor: “U.S. Export Controls: What Has Changed?”

(Source:
Stratfor Worldview Enterprise, 2 July 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
Since the announcement of the Export Control Reform Initiative (ECRI) in 2011, the revisions have been slowly rolled out and implemented. Since the beginning of the three-phase ECRI rollout, exporters, agencies, and the system at large have experienced major changes. The changes have three overreaching themes: prioritization of business and commerce, unintended consequences, and enforcement and prosecution.
 
Prioritization of Business and Commerce
 
The ECRI developed in part from industry pressure to increase commerce and competitiveness of U.S. businesses in the international market. If other countries were selling restricted or prohibited items or selling items in countries with limited access to the U.S. market, then U.S. companies faced significant disadvantages compared to their international counterparts.
The changes moved items from International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the U.S. Munitions List (USML) to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the Commerce Control List (CCL). This meant items controlled for military use, yet having a potential commercial use could be sold more easily, with fewer restrictions. The EAR, generally, places less burden on companies during the licensing process. Eighteen of 21 categories have already transitioned. …
