SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK
ON APPLICATION 050210707

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 application 050210707 for the export
of International Traffic in Arms (ITAR)-controlled Wall Mount
Receptacles to Singapore. 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: Unfamiliar Foreign/Intermediate
Consignees; Diversion concerns.

4. Action: Department requests that Post make inquiries
with Singapore Ministry of Defense to establish the bona
fides of Foreign Consignee Yatz Electronics and Foreign
Intermediate Consignee Precision Technologies Pte Ltd. in the
proposed transaction. If possible, conduct site visits to
assess the companies' reliability as recipients of United
States Munitions List (USML) items as well as their
operations and on-site security. Emphasize that the
unauthorized re-export or retransfer of USML items is
strictly prohibited. Confirm with the end-user that it
placed an order for the items listed below for the purpose
stated on the application. Determine whether any other
Singaporean firms are involved in the procurement of the
items.

The following questions are provided as guidance:

--Will the company be handling or storing any of USML items
listed on the license application?
If so, does it have secure facilities and proper accounting
and security procedures for handling them?

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

--Does the company appear in Singapore business directories?
Does it have a website?

- Can your company provide additional documentation firmly
establishing its role in the proposed transaction?

- Has the company previously imported or acted as a consignee
involving U.S. defense articles requiring a USML license?

- Does your company regularly or otherwise procure defense
articles for this end-user? Other end-users?

- Does your company serve as a broker of USML articles (i.e.
do they facilitate transactions between parties for the
sale/transfer of USML)? If so, with what other locations
besides Singapore?

- Does your company have offices abroad? If so, where are
they located?

- Has this company ever used any other names?

- What other products are sold by your company?

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

--Does the company understand the restrictions on USML items,
especially the prohibition against
unauthorized re-transfers and re-exports?

End Action Request.
