SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: POST-SHIPMENT END-USE CHECK
ON LICENSE 050059746

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 Embassy's assistance in
conducting a post-shipment check on license 050059746 for the
export of Super Tucano aircraft parts to Colombia. Embassy
is requested to complete this Blue Lantern check within 45
days. Lack of response to a Blue Lantern check will affect
pending and future licenses involving parties to this license.

3. Reason for request: Lack of documentation from Colombian
Air Force (CAF), and need to verify its relationship with
foreign consignee, Embraer (in Brazil).

4. ACTION: Embassy is requested to make inquiries with
appropriate host government officials to determine if the CAF
has received the Super Tucano spare parts from Embraer and
that the articles are being used for the purpose stated on
the license. Export data indicates that items worth $7,426
shipped from the United States on April 4, 2008. Due to lack
of documentation from the end user, post is requested to
exercise its contacts within the Colombian MOD to verify this
order.
END ACTION.
