GAO Ex/Im Reports and Testimonies of Interest: “Status of End-Use Monitoring of Dual-Use Exports as of August 2019”

(Source:
GAO
, 12 August 2019.)
 
The mission of the Export-Import Bank of the United States is to support U.S. jobs by facilitating the export of U.S. goods and services. It does this through loans, loan guarantees, and insurance.
 
The bank’s charter generally prohibits supporting sales of weapons and other defense items. However, it may facilitate export of “dual-use” items that have commercial and military application-construction equipment for a foreign military, for example.
 
We monitored fiscal year 2017 dual-use projects and looked for new projects in 2018. We found 3 projects in 2017 that were monitored as required or completed. We found no new projects in 2018.

ST&R Trade Report: “Export Compliance Programs Can Help Mitigate Seizures Under Updated CBP Guidelines”
(Source: Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report, 12 August 2019.)
 
Recently updated guidelines from U.S. Customs and Border Protection will make it more expensive to secure a return of goods seized for violations of U.S. export laws or regulations. However, export compliance programs and other factors can help lower that cost.
 
CBP may seize goods that are being exported, or have been exported, in violation of U.S. export control laws, including those of the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, the Bureau of Industry and Security, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and the Drug Enforcement Agency. CBP may also seize imported goods when the importation has a nexus to an exportation; e.g., goods temporarily imported or temporarily exported when the shipment does not have the required license, permit, or other authorization. CBP may also seize goods for failure to obtain a required Form 6 from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for permanent importation of licensable goods.
 
When such seizures occur, parties with an interest in the goods can submit an administrative petition to request remission of the forfeiture and return of the goods. CBP reviews the facts and circumstances of each case and decides whether to grant relief and, if so, what type and under what conditions. CBP may reference these guidelines when making such decisions.
 
CBP states that previous versions of these guidelines distinguished between technical violations and substantive violations but that these terms are no longer being used because they were often confusing and misleading and are not used by licensing agencies. Instead, CBP is now distinguishing between license violations and non-license violations. License violations include exports of goods without the required license or other authorization, exports of goods in excess of the authorized amount, and failure to timely or properly file electronic export information for licensable goods. Non-license violations occur when the shipment has the required authorization (or none is required) but there is another violation; e.g., a violation of the Foreign Trade Regulations.
 
Under the revised guidelines, CBP will generally remit a forfeiture and release goods seized for export violations only if the following conditions are met: all costs of seizure (storage and appraisal) are paid, an executed hold harmless agreement is submitted, the goods are brought into compliance or exported under CBP supervision (if required), all export requirements are met if the goods are released for export, and a forfeiture remission amount is paid. The ranges below should serve as guidance when determining the remission amount.
 
First offense – if no aggravating factors are present, 10-30 percent of the export value of the seized goods but not less than $500; if aggravating factors are present, 30-50 percent of the export value but not less than $1,000
 
Second offense – if no aggravating factors are present, 30-50 percent of the export value but not less than $1,000; if aggravating factors are present, 50-80 percent of the export value but not less than $2,500
 
Third or subsequent offense – 50-80 percent of the export value but not less than $1,500
 
Remission amounts will generally be at the higher end of these ranges for license violations and at the lower end or middle for non-license violations, although egregious violations may justify deviation from this approach in either case.
 
The guidelines list a number of mitigating and aggravating factors that CBP may consider in determining a remission amount. Mitigating factors may include prior seizure history, inexperience, voluntary disclosures, third-party error, exceptional cooperation, remedial measures, and the existence of an active systematic export compliance program. Aggravating factors may include related criminal convictions, intentional violations, a pattern of violations showing disregard for U.S. laws and regulations, multiple violations in the same transaction, and the lack of an active systematic export compliance effort.

S.H. Reisinger, S.M. McNabb & K.H. Caine: “US Imposes Second Round of CBW Act Sanctions on Russia; Overall Impact to Remain Minimal”
(Source:
Norton Rose Fulbright, 12 August 2019.)
 
* Authors: Stefan H. Reisinger, Esq., stefan.reisinger@nortonrosefulbright.com, 1-202-662-4512; Stephen M. McNabb, Esq., stephen.mcnabb@nortonrosefulbright.com, 1-202-662-4528; and Kimberly Hope Caine, Esq., kim.caine@nortonrosefulbright.com, 1-202-662-0394, all of Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP.
 
In a long-awaited decision, the US has announced that it will impose a second round of sanctions on Russia as required under the Chemical and Biological Weapons and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (22 USC. 5601 et seq.) (the CBW Act). The sanctions, which will not become effective until the publication of a notice in the Federal Register on or around August 19, 2019, relate to Russia’s alleged attempt in 2018 to assassinate Sergei Skripal and his daughter using a banned nerve agent. In summary, the sanctions will:
 
– Prohibit “US banks” from, after August 26, 2019, participating in the primary market for non-ruble denominated Russian sovereign bonds or lending non-ruble denominated funds to the Russian sovereign;
 
– Impose a presumption of denial, subject to certain exceptions discussed below, on applications for licenses to export dual-use goods that are controlled by the US Department of Commerce for chemical and biological weapons proliferation (CB) reasons; and
 
– Require the United States to oppose the extension of any loan or financial or technical assistance to Russia by international financial institutions, such as the World Bank or International Monetary Fund.
 
As discussed in more detail below, the impact of these sanctions, as with the first round of sanctions issued in August, 2018, is expected to be minimal, particularly in comparison to the menu of potential sanctions that could have been imposed. For example, the CBW Act authorizes a prohibition on: (i) the export to Russia of all goods and technologies (excluding agricultural products); (ii) importation into the United States of any Russian-origin goods; or (iii) the issuance or provision of any loan or credit to Russia, excluding agricultural related transactions. Rather than imposing these broad sanctions, the State Department elected, as it did with the first round of sanctions, to utilize its broad waiver authority to significantly narrow their scope.
 
This second round of sanctions was required under the CBW Act because, following the first round of sanctions, Russia did not sufficiently establish within ninety days that it had met the required conditions, including that it would allow on-site inspections to verify it had stopped using chemical or biological weapons. The second round of sanctions could have been imposed as early as November 2018, but the administration delayed the process until recent Congressional pressure necessitated a response.
 
The sanctions must remain in place for at least 12 months and can only be lifted if the President determines and certifies to the Congress that Russia has met several conditions described in the CBW Act, including providing reliable assurances that (1) it is not making preparations to use chemical weapons; (2) it has provided assurances it will not use chemical weapons in the future; (3) it has allowed international inspectors to verify those assurances; and (4) it has paid restitution to the victims of the nerve agent attack.
 
I
.
Prohibition on US banks engaging in certain transactions involving Russian sovereign debt
The most significant of the three sanctions is the prohibition on “US banks” from “participation in the primary market for non-ruble denominated bonds issued by the Russian sovereign” and “lending non-ruble denominated funds to the Russian sovereign.”
 
While the CBW Act refers to “US Banks,” the related Directive issued by the US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) specifies that the term should be construed to apply to a broader universe of US financial institutions, including: “depository institutions, banks, savings banks, trust companies, securities brokers and dealers, commodity futures and options brokers and dealers, forward contract and foreign exchange merchants, securities and commodities exchanges, clearing corporations, investment companies, employee benefit plans, and US holding companies, US affiliates, or US subsidiaries of any of the foregoing.”
 
The term “Russian sovereign” is defined to include any ministry, agency, or sovereign fund of the Russian Federation, including the Central Bank of Russia, the National Wealth Fund, and the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation.
 
Explicitly excluded from the prohibitions, however, are transactions involving: (1) the non-primary (i.e., secondary) market for Russian sovereign debt; (2) ruble denominated debt; or (3) state-owned enterprises in Russia (which are excluded from the definition of Russian sovereign).
 
Russian sovereign debt has frequently been discussed as a potential target for US sanctions so many US financial institutions had previously largely withdrawn from participating in transactions involving such debt, outside of certain transactions involving Russian Eurobonds. Because ruble denominated debt is excluded from the scope of the new sanctions, transactions involving Russian ruble denominated Federal Loan Obligations (OFZs) will likely remain permissible. More problematic for US financial institutions, however, will be transactions involving Russian Eurobonds, which are, by definition, denominated in non-Russian currencies (primarily US dollars). It is unclear, for example, whether US financial institutions will be permitted to continue clearing US-dollar transactions associated with such bonds.
 
II
.
Restriction on exports of CB controlled US-origin items
According to the US Department of State, the sanctions will include a presumption of denial for all applications for licenses to export dual-use goods that are controlled by the US Department of Commerce for chemical and biological weapons proliferation reasons (CB). The US Department of Commerce has not yet issued any regulations or guidance specifying how it will implement these restrictions but, according to the State Department guidance, the restrictions, like those imposed on national security controlled items under the first round of sanctions, will include multiple exceptions that will significantly reduce their impact.
 
For example, there will be an exception for US firms fulfilling existing contracts with Russian customers. In addition, license applications for exports of CB controlled items involving the following activities will be treated on a case by case basis, and not be subject to a policy of denial:
 
– Exports needed for space flight activities, including those involving government space cooperation and commercial space launch;
– Exports needed to ensure the safe operation of commercial passenger aviation;
– Exports to commercial end-users in Russia for civil end-uses;
– Exports to wholly owned-subsidiaries of US and other foreign companies in Russia; and
– Deemed export licenses for Russian nationals working in the United States.
 
It is not certain whether exports of CB controlled items will, like NS items in the first round of sanctions, remain eligible for export under various license exceptions. Based on these broad exceptions, and because all CB controlled items already required a license for export to Russia, the main impact of the new prohibitions will largely be limited to a formal presumption of denial for CB controlled products to Russian government owned and funded entities that are unrelated to space cooperation.
 
III
.
Opposition to international financial institution assistance to Russia
 
Under the new sanctions, the United States is required to oppose the provision of any loan, or financial or technical assistance, to Russia by international financial institutions such as the World Bank or International Monetary Fund unless such assistance “is directed specifically to programs which serve the basic human needs of the citizens of such country.”
 
Russian reliance on these institutions for assistance is minimal (for example, according to IMF data Russia currently has zero IMF-issued loans), so the impact of this policy is also likely to be minimal.

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

* Alex Haley
( Alexander Murray Palmer Haley; 11 Aug 1921 – 10 Feb 1992; was an American writer and the author of the 1976 book Roots: The Saga of an American Family. ABC adapted the book as a television miniseries of the same name and aired it in 1977 to a record-breaking audience of 130 million viewers. In the United States, the book and miniseries raised the public awareness of African American history and inspired a broad interest in genealogy and family history.)
  – “Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.”
 
* Robert Southey
(12 Aug 1774 – 21 Mar 1843; was an English poet of the Romantic school, one of the Lake Poets along with William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and England’s Poet Laureate for 30 years from 1813 until his death in 1843.)
  – “Live as long as you may, the first twenty years are the longest half of your life.”
 
Monday is pun day.
* My boss is going to fire the employee with the worst posture. I have a hunch — it might be me.
* I can’t believe I got fired from the calendar factory.  All I did was take a day off.
* Don’t spell part backwards. It’s a trap!
