Business Times: “Japan’s Tightened Export Control Not To Disrupt Chipmaking In South Korea” 
 

(Source: Business Times, 23 Aug 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
Japan’s tightening of three key semiconductor exports will not be disrupting South Korea’s chipmakers because its government is securing substitutes and putting in money so they can manufacture what they used to import from Japan.
 
A source said that Korean chipmakers have found solutions both in the country and abroad.
 
Another source also said that though no one can relax yet, it is not likely that semiconductor production will get cut or suspended.
 
 
South Korea’s SK Hynix, the world’s second-largest memory chipmaker after Samsung and the world’s 3
rd-largest semiconductor company
said it planned to cut DRAM production last month because of the oversupply of DRAM and not because of the expected shortage.
 
Japan tightened export regulations by asking Japanese chip and display material makers to get individual approval first when they export to Korea items like fluoride polyimide, high-purity hydrogen fluoride (HF) and photoresist.
 
The application process takes 90 days.

G.C. Kubrick, J. O’Hara & C. Scheitterlein: “Canada’s New Export Brokering Regime”
(Source: McMillan LLP, August 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
* Authors: Geoffrey C. Kubrick, Esq., geoffrey.kubrick@mcmillan.ca; Jonathan O’Hara, Esq., jonathan.ohara@mcmillan.ca; and Chris Scheitterlein, Esq., chris.scheitterlein@mcmillan.ca, all of McMillan LLP, Canada.
 
On September 17, 2019, Canada will formally become a State Party to the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty that regulates the international trade in conventional arms, which range from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships. In preparation for Canada’s accession, the government has made significant amendments to the Export and Import Permits Act (“EIPA”)1 to broaden Canada’s traditional export control regime.  
 
The amendments aim to make Canada’s regulatory regime compliant with international obligations under the Arms Trade Treaty. The current regime is focused exclusively on the export and import of certain goods and technologies to and from Canada, whereas the new regime will also regulate the movement of these goods and technologies between two or more foreign countries when Canadian citizens or organizations are involved in the transaction. The provisions of An Act to amend the Export and Import Permits Act and the Criminal Code (“Bill C- 47”), previously assented to on December 13, 2018, and its associated regulations will come into force on September 1, 2019. …

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

EN_a210
. Bartlett’s Unfamiliar Quotations

(Source: Editor)

 

* Gene Kelly
(Eugene Curran Kelly; 23 Aug 1912 – 2 Feb 1996; was an American dancer, actor of film, stage, and television, singer, film director, producer, and choreographer. He was known for his energetic and athletic dancing style, his good looks, and the likable characters that he played on screen. Best known today for his performances in films such as An American in Paris (1951), Anchors Aweigh (1945)- for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor-and Singin’ in the Rain (1952), he starred in musical films until they fell out of fashion in the late 1950s.)
  – “When Ginger Rogers danced with Astaire, it was the only time in the movies when you looked at the man, not the woman.”
 
* William Wilberforce
(24 Aug 1759 – 29 Jul 1833; was a British politician, philanthropist, and a leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade. He headed the parliamentary campaign against the British slave trade for twenty years until the passage of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.)
  – “If you love someone who is ruining his or her life because of faulty thinking, and you don’t do anything about it because you are afraid of what others might think, it would seem that rather than being loving, you are in fact being heartless.” 
 
Friday funnies (more State jokes):
* North Dakota: What’s a seven-course meal in North Dakota? A hamburger and a six-pack.
* Ohio: How do you know you’re from Ohio? You own only three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup.
* Oklahoma

How can you tell if an Oklahoma man is married? There’s dried chewing tobacco on both sides of his pickup truck.
