SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: POST-SHIPMENT END-USE CHECK
ON LICENSE NUMBERS 05-050016544, 05-988470, AND 05-990843

REF: 2006 BLUE LANTERN GUIDEBOOK

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

2. The Department's Office of Defense Trade Controls
Compliance (PM/DTCC) requests Posts' assistance
in conducting a post-shipment inquiry on license numbers
05-050016544, 05-988470, and 05-990843 for
the export of defense hardware to Indonesia. Posts are
requested to complete this Blue Lantern inquiry
within 45 days. Lack of response to a Blue Lantern inquiry
will affect pending and future licenses
involving parties to this license.

3. Reason for request: Foreign Consignee Growhill
Enterprise PTE LTD has appeared on only one
previous license, and its bona fides have never been verified
by a Blue Lantern inquiry.

4. Action Singapore: Department requests that Post verify
the bona fides of Growhill Enterprise
PTE LTD as a responsible recipient of United States Munitions
List (USML) items, and confirm its role
in the listed transactions. If possible, conduct a site
visit in order to provide Department with
an assessment of the company's business operations and
on-site security. Emphasize that the unauthorized
re-export or retransfer of USML items is strictly prohibited.

Action Jakarta: Post should verify the bona fides of PT
Ciptaarta Hadikara in the listed transactions.
If possible, conduct a site visit in order to provide
Department with an assessment of the company's
business operations and on-site security, and determine
whether it is a responsible recipient of USML
items. Emphasize that the unauthorized re-export or
retransfer of USML items is strictly prohibited.
Confirm that the end-user received all of the items listed on
the licenses, and that they are being used
for the stated purpose. The following questions provide
suggested guidance:


For Badan Intelijen Strategis (BAIS) TNI:

--Are you familiar with PT Ciptaarta Hadikara?

--Did you receive all of the USML items listed on each of the
licenses? If not, what is the status of
the unshipped items for each applicable license?

--Is PT Ciptaarta Hadikara an official supplier/contractor
for Indonesia MOD?

--Does the Indonesian MOD have any other contracts with this
company?


For PT Ciptaarta Hadikara:

--When was the company established and who are its principals?

--What is the nature of your business (i.e., What types of
items does your firm handle and do you serve
as a broker)?

--What types of organizations are among your typical
customers and where are they located?

--Does the company have proper supporting documentation,
including purchase orders from Badan Intelijen
Strategis which confirms your role on each of the licenses?

--Is the company currently handling or storing any of the
USML items listed on the licenses? If so, do
you have
secure facilities and proper accounting and security
procedures for handling these sensitive USML items?

--Did the company integrate/incorporate any of the USML items
into other products at the request of the
end-user? If so, please specify.

--Do you understand the restrictions on United States
Munitions List (USML) items, especially
the prohibition against unauthorized re-transfers and
re-exports?


End Action Request.
