JAKARTA FOR CURTIS SHAW AND ELIZABETH L. PERRY

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ETTC KOMC ID
SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK
ON APPLICATION 050214023

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 050214023 for the export
of gyros to Indonesia. Embassy is requested to complete this
Blue Lantern check within 40 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 the
Indonesian Air Force. Also, unfamiliar foreign consignee,
Erena International Logistics, PT (EIL). The company has
appeared on a previous license but its bona fides have not
been verified by a Blue Lantern check.

4. ACTION JAKARTA: Embassy is requested to make inquiries
with appropriate authorities to determine if the Indonesian
Air Force ordered the gyros from EIL 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 EIL 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:

----What is the exact end-use for these USML items? Will EIL
retain positive control over the gyros at all times prior to
turning them over to the Indonesian Air Force?

--Does the company have secure facilities and proper
accounting and security procedures for handling sensitive
USML items?

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

--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?
END ACTION
