FT: “Huawei to Pay Staff $286m Bonus for Helping Counter Sanctions”

(Source: Financial Times, 12 Nov 2019.) [ Excerpts indicated by “….”]
 
Huawei will pay out Rmb2bn ($286 million) in bonuses and double almost all employees’ monthly salaries for October as a reward for helping the world’s largest telecoms equipment maker counter US sanctions imposed by the Trump administration. 
 
In May, the US barred the Chinese company from buying crucial semiconductors from suppliers including Qualcomm and banned it from using Google’s Android operating system in its smartphones, citing worries the group poses a national security risk.  
Washington views Huawei as a potential spy on behalf of the Chinese government, an allegation the company denies. ….

U.S. firearms makers will be able to more easily export guns, including assault rifles and ammunition, as early as mid-December under rules set to be finalized by the Trump administration, people briefed on the matter said on Tuesday.
 
The proposed export changes could be enacted on or after Dec. 14, and would move oversight of commercial firearm exports to the Commerce Department from the State Department, the sources told Reuters.
 
Staff on several legislative committees were briefed on the rule changes on Tuesday ahead of a formal notification for lawmakers for Thursday, the people said, starting a 30-day clock before the rules can take effect. ….
 
The effort to streamline U.S. small arms export controls dates back to an Obama administration initiative begun in 2009 that was never translated into policy. ….

COM_a19. A.V. Capobianco, B.P. Curran & A. Dukic: “OFAC Issues General Licenses Authorizing Certain Transactions Involving the Government of Venezuela”
 
 
 
 

(Source: 
Hogan Lovells, 8 Nov 2019.) [Excerpts indicated by “….”]
 
* Authors: Anthony V. Capobianco, Esq., anthony.capobianco@hoganlovells.com, +1 202-637-2568; Brian P. Curran, Esq., brian.curran@hoganlovells.com, +1 202-637-4886; and Aleksandar Dukic, Esq., aleksandar.dukic@hoganlovells.com, +1 202-637-546; all of Hogan Lovells.
 
On 5 November 2019, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued two new general licenses authorizing certain transactions involving the Government of Venezuela (GOV) and certain individuals affiliated with the GOV, which is blocked pursuant to Executive Order 13884 (E.O. 13884). Specifically, OFAC issued General License No. 35 (GL 35) which authorizes U.S. persons to engage in certain administrative transactions with the GOV, provided that the activity is necessary and incident to the U.S. person’s day-to-day operations related to non-sanctioned activities and entities. In addition, OFAC issued amended General License No. 34A (GL 34A), which authorizes transactions with certain GOV persons.
 
With these general licenses, OFAC published new and amended Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) concerning Venezuela-related Sanctions. An overview of the newly issued and amended general licenses and FAQs is set forth below.
 
You can view our previous publications concerning Venezuela-related Sanctions here.
 
General License No. 35
 
Before GL 35, was issued, U.S. persons were generally prohibited from engaging in transactions involving the GOV, and conducting business in Venezuela had become increasingly difficult for U.S. companies. However, GL 35 loosens certain restrictions on conducting business in Venezuela and authorizes particular transactions with the GOV that are otherwise prohibited by EO 13884, provided that these transactions are administrative in nature and are necessary and incident to day-to-day operations that are not otherwise prohibited under the sanctions. Such administrative transactions include paying for taxes, fees and import duties, public utility services, and purchasing and receiving permits, licenses, and certifications from the GOV.
 
This general license may be particularly beneficial for U.S. companies with continued business operations in Venezuela; however, it is important to note that GL 35 does not authorize any transactions or dealings with any blocked person other than those specifically described in the general license. …. 
 
Lastly, the use of GL 35 is subject to certain ongoing and mandatory reporting requirements. Specifically, …. 
 
General License No. 34A
 
GL 34A continues to authorize transactions involving individuals who meet the definition of the Government of Venezuela pursuant to E.O. 13884 for the following categories of authorized persons: (i) U.S. citizens; (ii) permanent resident aliens of the United States; (iii) individuals who have a valid U.S. immigrant or nonimmigrant visa, other than individuals in the United States as part of Venezuela’s mission to the United Nations; and (iv) former employees and contractors of the government of Venezuela. However, GL 34 was amended to specifically include the following new category of authorized persons: “current employees and contractors of the Government of Venezuela who provide health or education services in Venezuela, including at hospitals, schools, and universities.”
 
In addition, GL 34A authorizes transactions related to an authorized person’s receipt of a salary, pension, annuity or other employment-related payments of benefits from the GOV.  
Like GL 35, GL 34A is also subject to certain mandatory reporting requirements with OFAC.
 
New and Amended FAQs
 
In addition to the General Licenses above, OFAC published the following FAQs:
 


FAQ 805 addresses the types of activities authorized by GL 35, but warns that U.S. persons who rely on the authorizations set forth in GL 35 should remain cautious and exercise appropriate due diligence to ensure compliance with the terms of the authorization.

 
FAQ 680 was amended to reflect authorizations granted in GL 34A and provides additional clarity on the types of transactions that remain prohibited under E.O. 13884. ….

G.R. Tuttle: “USTR Announces New Round of Section 301 Duty Exclusions for List 3”

M. Bellan, W. Devaney & M. Batonga: “DOJ Guidelines Incentivize Companies to Self-Disclose and Cooperate in False Claims Act Cases”
(Source: Baker McKenzie, 11 Oct 2019.) [Excerpts indicated by “….”.  Footnotes omitted.]
 
* Authors: Maurice Bellan, Esq., maurice.bellan@bakermckenzie.com; William Devaney, Esq., william.devaney@bakermckenzie.com; and Marilyn Batonga, Esq., marilyn.batonga@bakermckenzie.com; all of Baker McKenzie.
 ….
The U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) has issued Guidelines for Taking Disclosure, Cooperation, and Remediation into Account in False Claims Act Matters, which identify various factors that the Department will consider in issuing credit to companies that voluntarily disclose misconduct that could serve as the basis for False Claims Act (“FCA”) violations, or companies that otherwise cooperate in ensuing investigations. While the policy provides  companies incentives to make voluntary self-disclosures to obtain maximum credit, other forms of cooperation can also earn meaningful credit, and any credit awarded will vary depending on the circumstances in particular cases.
 
Types of Credit
 
Credit provided to a company can take the form of a reduction in civil penalties or impact the amount of the damages multiplier sought in the case. In any event, the maximum credit awarded may not exceed an amount that would result in the government receiving less than full compensation for the losses caused by the defendant’s misconduct. These losses can include not only the government’s damages, but also lost interest, the government’s costs in the investigation, and the relator share. …. 
 
How to Maximize Chances for a Credit
 
To maximize the chances that the disclosing party will receive credit in the resolution of an FCA matter, the disclosure must not only be voluntary but proactive and timely. …. The new guidelines contain a non-exhaustive list of the forms of cooperation that the DOJ will take into account when deciding whether to give cooperation credit and how much credit to give if it decides to do so, including:
 
* Identifying individuals substantially involved or responsible for the misconduct;
* Disclosing relevant facts and identifying opportunities for the government to obtain evidence ….;
* Preserving, collecting, and disclosing relevant documents ….;
* Identifying individuals who are aware of relevant information or conduct, including an entity’s operations, policies, and procedures;
* Making officers and employees who possess relevant information available for meetings, interviews or depositions;
* Disclosing facts relevant to the government’s investigation gathered during the company’s independent investigation;
* Providing facts relevant to potential misconduct by third-party entities and third-party individuals;
* Facilitating the review and evaluation of information if it requires proprietary technologies so that the information can be evaluated;
* Admitting liability or accepting responsibility for the relevant conduct; and
* Assisting in the determination or recovery of the losses caused by the company’s misconduct.
 
The Department will also consider whether the company took appropriate remedial measures in response to the FCA violation, including implementing or improving an effective compliance program or disciplining or replacing those responsible for the misconduct. …. 
 
The guidelines are consistent with recent efforts by the Department to exercise more control over FCA investigations and litigation. In January 2018, a leaked memo from Michael Granston, director of the DOJ’s Commercial Litigation Branch, Fraud Section, instructed Department attorneys to consider seeking dismissal of actions brought by whistleblowers when these FCA suits do not serve the federal government’s best interests. ….
 
Key Takeaways
 
* …. The new guidelines do not change the preexisting legal obligations of an entity or individual to report or cooperate with the federal government.  ….
 
* Disclosure is not the only method of cooperation that can earn credit. …. 
 
* DOJ acknowledges that self-disclosure of violations, while encouraged, can and does affect negotiations with other agencies. As credit for disclosure or other forms of cooperation, the DOJ may consider notifying other agencies of the cooperation so that it can be taken into consideration during administrative proceedings including those for suspension and debarment. ….

P. Burnson: “2020 Trade Update: More complexities in Compliance”
(Source: Logistics Management, 11 Nov 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
* Author: P. Burson, Executive Editor, pburnson@peerlessmedia.com, Logistics Management.
 
Most countries impose legal control on the export of goods from their jurisdictions, while international trade agreements often include additional regulations. However, failing to observe new laws and sanctions can have severe consequences for importers as well.
 
When the Trump administration announced last month that it had secured a partial deal with Chinese negotiators to push pause on the escalating trade war, our nation’s leading retailers were among the first to praise the move.
 
“Retailers are encouraged by the progress made between the United States and China and are pleased that the administration has listened to the concerns of the business community as the trade war takes an increasing toll on the American economy,” says David French, senior vice president for government relations of The National Retail Federation.
 
French adds that the decision to delay planned tariff hikes is welcome, but incomplete news for shippers heading into the busy holiday shopping season. “Although this is a step in the right direction, the uncertainty continues,” French adds. “We urge both sides to stay at the negotiating table with the goal of lifting all tariffs and fundamentally resetting U.S.-China trade relations.”
Global logistics managers in automotive, electronics and agriculture sectors are also seeking regulatory compliance tips as both sides meet to finalize a tentative trade deal, while crafting the precise language of the preliminary phase.  ….
