E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ETTC KOMC SP VN
SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK
ON LICENSE 050204437

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 Post's assistance in conducting
a pre-license check on license 050204437 for the export of
International Traffic in Arms (ITAR)-controlled C-295
aircraft parts to Vietnam. Post is requested to 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 this license.

3. Reason for request: End-Use Statement provided by foreign
intermediate consignee EADS CASA of Spain states that the
parts will be used for the C-295 aircraft for end-use by the
Vietnam Marine Police (VMP). The Department could not
independently verify that the C-295 has been ordered by or
delivered to Vietnam. In addition, the Department requires
verification that the aircraft parts will not be used in a
lethal component of the aircraft. Federal Register Notice
Vol. 72, No. 63 states that the United States will deny
approvals for exports of components of lethal defense
articles destined for Vietnam.

4. ACTION MADRID: Department requests that Post make inquires
with EADS CASA to verify the bona fides of this transaction.
Post is requested to ask EADS CASA to provide documentation
that verifies the end-use of the aircraft parts, such as a
contract with the VMP. Post is also requested to inquire if
the motor pump on which the subject parts are to be
incorporated will be used for or installed on the hardpoints
of the aircraft.

(COMMENT: Hardpoints are areas of the aircraft where armament
can be attached. END COMMENT)

ACTION HANOI: Department requests that Post make inquiries
with appropriate officials as to whether the C-295 has been
ordered by the VMP. Post is requested to inquire as to how
many aircraft have been ordered and when the VMP expects to
take delivery of the planes. Finally, Post is requested to
inquire as to how the aircraft will be used by the VMP and
for what types of missions.

END ACTION.
