SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK
ON APPLICATION 050192019
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 AIT Taipei's assistance in
conducting a pre-license check on application 050192019 for
the export of gyroscopes to Taiwan. AIT Taipei is requested
to complete this Blue Lantern check within 30 days. Lack of
response to a Blue Lantern check will affect pending and
future licenses involving parties to this license.
3. Reason for request: sensitive commodity, lack of
documentation from end-user Chung Shan Institute of Science
and Technology (CSIST), and unfamiliar foreign consignee,
Pegasus Hi-Tek Co., Ltd. (Pegasus). The company has appeared
on previous licenses but its bona fides have not been
verified by a Blue Lantern check.
4. ACTION AIT TAIPEI: AIT Taipei is requested to make
inquiries with appropriate authorities to determine if CSIST
ordered the gyroscopes from Pegasus and if so, verify the
amount and that the items will be used for the purpose stated
on the license. PM/DTCC also requests that post conduct a
site visit to Pegasus in order to provide Department with an
assessment of its business operations and on-site security.
Finally, post is asked to assess whether the company appears
to be a reliable recipient of USML items. If a site visit is
not possible, please inform the PM/DTCC officer.
The following questions are provided as suggested guidance:
--Does the company have supporting documentation for this
--Does the company have secure facilities and proper
accounting and security procedures for handling sensitive
--What is the exact end-use for this USML item?
--When was the company established and who are its
--What is the nature of its business -- what type of items
does it handle, does it serve as a broker?
--What type of organizations are among its typical customers
and where are the customers located?
--Does the company understand the restrictions on United
States Munitions List (USML) items, especially the
prohibition against unauthorized re-transfer and re-export?
