1. This is an Action Request. See paragraphs 2-4.

2. The Department's Office of Defense Trade Controls
Compliance (PM/DTCC) requests AIT Taipei's and Post's
assistance in conducting a pre-license check on application
05-050103333 for the export of defense hardware to Taiwan.
It is requested that you complete this Blue Lantern inquiry
within 30 days. Lack of response to a Blue Lantern inquiry
will affect pending and future licenses involving parties to

3. Reason for request: Unable to verify bona fides of foreign
consignee, Junsdom Solutions, in proposed transaction.
Open-source information indicates that it may be based in
mainland China.

4. Action AIT Taipei: Department requests that AIT Taipei
contact Chung Shan Institute of Technology and determine
whether that entity placed an order for the items listed
below for the purpose stated on the application. If so,
determine whether any other Taiwan-based firm is involved in
the procurement of the items. Remind the end-user that
the unauthorized re-export or retransfer of United States
Munitions List (USML) items is strictly prohibited.

Action Ottawa: Department requests that Post establish the
bona fides of foreign consignee Junsdom Solutions Co. Ltd as
a responsible recipient of USML items. Conduct a site visit
to assess the company's reliability as a recipient of USML
articles, and assess its operations and on-site security.
Emphasize that the unauthorized re-export or retransfer of
USML items is strictly prohibited.

The following questions provide suggested guidance:

(To Junsdom Solutions Co., Ltd.)

- Please confirm an order to be shipped under license
05-050103333.

- How long has your company been in the business of
importing and selling defense articles? What other products
are sold by your company? Does your company do business (or
has it done business) under any other names?

- Does your company conduct business involving USML articles
with any countries besides Taiwan? If so, where? If your
company has offices overseas, where are they located?

articles?
