LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Members and Colleagues, As I sit here rereading my letter to you from our last Directory issue, I cannot help but shake my head in disbelief! I spoke of the promise of a new decade, excitement for the upcoming Symposium, and general hope and optimism for a fresh new year in 2020. I think we can all agree that didn’t quite pan out the way we had hoped! I realize that not many of us have any desire to look back on 2020 at all, but even the darkest clouds have silver linings, right? From the announcement of a new container terminal by the Port of New Orleans to the good news about THE Alliance adding capacity to the continually growing Asia – US Gulf Trade, the last year has offered some small tokens of good news. We are also looking ahead to positive things to come. We have postponed our International Trade Symposium once again in order to hopefully ensure that we can provide a safe and healthy environment when we return to the Grand in Point Clear, Alabama September 8-11, 2021. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your continued support and patience throughout these unprecedented times. The resilience across our industry has been incredible to watch. Let’s keep our heads up and keep looking forward together!

Janet Colley-Morse | President

EXPANDING THE TRADE IFFCBANO — Delivering Louisiana’s Future

T

here are many good reasons to ship through New Orleans, and IFFCBANO works to promote those benefits. New Orleans is connected to 14,500 miles of inland waterways through the Mississippi River and its tributaries. Additionally, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway provides direct access along the Gulf Coast. The Port of New Orleans is the only seaport in the United States to be served by all six Class-I railroads, which allows customers direct access to a 133,000-mile rail network. Importers and exporters using shipping trade lanes via the Port of New Orleans are from Asia, Central America, the Caribbean, Latin America, Mexico, the Middle East, Northern Europe and Africa. Over the past 10 years, Port NOLA’s TEU volume has more than doubled, and prior to COVID, the Port was well on its way to moving 700,000 TEUs annually. The underlying reasons for that growth remain solid, and Port NOLA is moving forward with investments in current assets and developing new facilities to exceed future demand. The Port recently began the due diligence process for

a $1.5 billion multimodal container terminal in St. Bernard Parish to serve the largest container vessels calling in the Gulf of Mexico. A second container terminal, combined with the Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal expansion adding four new 100-foot gauge gantry cranes will position Louisiana to be the premier Gulf gateway for the future. Expansion of the Panama Canal has also increased direct accessibility of ocean vessels with larger capacities. For trade industry parties seeking to be part of that growth, IFFCBANO can serve as an invaluable network of resources. IFFCBANO has active representation within industry work groups such as the Port of New Orleans, the World Trade Center of New Orleans, the Port of South Louisiana, New Orleans Airport and the New Orleans Regional Planning Commission. Maintaining a strong relationship with these organizations ensures that our industry is well represented on transportation issues in the state of Louisiana. IFFCBANO continues to keep the focus on the horizon to see what opportunities may arise.

CURRENT AND PENDING TRADE AGREEMENTS: THE 2020 U.S. TRADE AGENDA B Y J O H N T. H Y A T T

1. Israel FTA became effective August 19, 1985 2. The North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico became effective January 1, 1994 The agreement is to be replaced by the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) which is expected to pass Congress the 1st quarter of 2020. There are six major updates: • U.S. Auto Manufacturing Boosted • Higher Enforcement of Labor Laws • U.S. Dairy Farmers Gain Additional Access • Update NAFTA for the Digital Era • Environmental Protections • Congress to Have Control Over Biologic Drugs 3. Jordan FTA became effective October 24, 2000 4. Chile FTA became effective January 1, 2004 5. Singapore FTA became effective January 1, 2004 6. Morocco FTA became effective June 15, 2004 7. Australia FTA became effective January 1, 2005 These cutting-edge agreements eliminate tariffs, tackle non-tariff barriers, open services markets, strengthen the intellectual property protections for our knowledge industries, and enhance labor and environmental protections. They level the playing field for U.S. businesses, increase choice and value for American consumers, and provide fresh momentum for open markets. 8. DR-CAFTA (Dominican Republic-Central America FTA) The agreement was signed May 29, 2004 and passed by both Houses of the U.S. Congress on July 27, 2005. Accession did not begin until each country changed its domestic laws to conform to the agreement. Countries were admitted into the agreement during the early months of 2006 in the following order: El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic. Costa Rica’s participation was affirmed after an October 2007 countrywide plebiscite; and a further extension granted in order to finalize certain laws relating to monopolies in telecommunications and insurance before the U.S. Trade

Representative could certify Costa Rica to the President. Such was accomplished in late 2008 and Costa Rica entered into DR-CAFTA as of January 1, 2009. 9. Bahrain FTA became effective January 11, 2006 10. Oman FTA became effective January 1, 2009 11. Peru FTA became effective February 1, 2009 12. Korea FTA became effective March 15, 2012 13. Colombia FTA became effective May 15, 2012 14. Panama FTA became effective October 1, 2012 More than 70 percent of the world’s purchasing power and nearly 95 percent of its consumers are located outside the United States. Businesses that export grow faster and are 8 percent less likely to declare bankruptcy than those that do not, according to the Institute for International Economics. Expanding exports can accelerate economic growth and hiring: every $1 billion of exports supports nearly 6,000 jobs. Free trade agreements (FTAs) can open up new markets to exports. FTAs reduce trade barriers while also establishing common standards and protections for U.S. interests and laws. The U.S. has 14 FTAs with 20 countries, which accounted for over 45 percent of the country’s exports last year. Previously, the Obama Administration was negotiating two broad trade agreements: the Transatlantic Trade

and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) with members of the European Union and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The Trump Administration has established a bi-lateral, as opposed to a multi-lateral, trade negotiating position. So, consequently these two agreements have become still-born. 15. U.S-Japan Trade Agreement – entered into force January 1, 2020. Over 90 percent of U.S. food and agricultural products imported into Japan will either be duty free or receive preferential tariff access. Under the agreement, Japan will • Reduce tariffs on products such as fresh and frozen beef and pork. • Provide a country-specific quota for wheat and wheat products. • Reduce the mark-up on imported U.S. wheat and barley. • Immediately eliminate tariffs for almonds, walnuts, blueberries, cranberries, sweet corn, grain sorghum, broccoli, and more. • Provide staged tariff elimination for products such as cheeses, processed pork, poultry, beef offal, ethanol, wine, frozen potatoes, oranges, fresh cherries, egg products, and tomato paste.

REAUTHORIZING TRADE PROMOTION AUTHORITY The most recent previous renewal of TPA covered agreements reached between December 2002 and the end of June 2007. Current legislation would apply to agreements reached before July 1, 2018, with a possible extension to July 1, 2021. Legislation to reauthorize TPA was introduced, but not considered, in the 113th Congress. For successful negotiations, TPA allows the President to enter into reciprocal trade agreements and requires that legislation for implementing the agreement be considered on a defined timeline without amendments. In return, the President must keep Congress informed throughout the negotiations and abide by certain notification and consulting requirements. It improves the Administration’s position in the negotiations by ensuring the agreed-upon terms will be binding. Congress first gave the President the authority to enter into trade agreements in the 1970s. RETROACTIVE RENEWAL- GENERALIZED SYSTEM OF PREFERENCES GSP The program extends duty-free treatment to several thousand products imported into the United States from more than two-thirds of the world’s countries. GSP is an important way American companies keep costs down. Large and small businesses import products duty-free under GSP.

THE MISCELLANEOUS TARIFF BILL (MTB) An annual piece of legislation that is passed by the US Congress to temporarily reduce or suspend tariffs on certain imported products and make technical corrections to US tariff laws. The legislation boosts the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers by lowering the cost of imported inputs (some 600 tariff lines) without harming domestic firms that produce competing products. In addition, in the case of finished goods, MTBs similarly reduce costs for consumers where there is no domestic production and thus no impact on domestic firms. Overall, the tariff relief contained in MTBs is designed both to be broadly available to any entity that imports and pays duties pursuant to the specified tariff heading and to benefit downstream producers, purchasers, and consumers. The current MTB of 2017-2020 expires; and the application period for the next MTB 2021-2024 ended 12/10/19. At this point ITC/USDOC/ USCBP will vet applications and present a report to Congress. This would, no doubt become incorporated into the 2020 Lame Duck Congress’ Omnibus “must pass” legislation. SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER WITH FTA S/TPA S • The U.S. currently has in place free trade agreements with 20 countries. Although the U.S. trade deficit is continually cited as a reason to throttle back on FTAs/TPAs, in fact, exports to these countries in manufactured goods, agricultural products and financial services have increased three fold, resulting in a healthy trade surplus, per U.S. Department of Commerce statistics. • Prior to implementation of the Dominican Republic-Central America Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA), the U.S. was running an annual $1.7 billion trade deficit with the region. That has now morphed into a $1.8 billion trade surplus. • Under the NAFTA, if energy imports from Canada and Mexico are taken out of the equation (80% of the trade,) the U.S. is running a trade surplus with both countries in manufactured goods. It should be remembered that protectionism serves no one’s interests. The Tariff Act of 1930 (otherwise known as the Smoot-Hawley Tariff), was signed into law on June 17, 1930 by President Herbert Hoover with the flourish of six gold pens, despite protests by over 1,000 economists (and noticed as a headline on the front page of the May 5, 1930 issue of the The New York Times). It raised U.S. tariffs on over 20,000 imported goods to record levels. The overall tariff levels were the secondhighest in U.S. history, and the ensuing retaliatory tariffs by U.S. trading partners, reduced American exports and imports by more than half.

BUREAU OF INDUSTRY & SECURITY GUIDELINES In support of the safe and secure flow of international trade, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published the following guidelines to assist the trade community in achieving a high level of compliance with Export Administration Regulations.

2020 best practices for preventing unlawful diversion of U.S. dual-use items subject to the export administration regulations, particularly through transshipment trade Best Practice No. 1 - Companies should pay heightened attention to the Red Flag Indicators on the BIS Website and communicate any red flags to all divisions, branches, etc., particularly when an exporter denies a buyer’s order or a freight forwarder declines to provide export services for dual-use items. Best Practice No. 2 - Exporters/Re-exporters should seek to utilize only those Trade Facilitators/Freight Forwarders that administer sound export management and compliance programs which include best practices for transshipment. Best Practice No. 3 - Companies should “Know” their foreign customers by obtaining detailed information on the bona fides (credentials) of their customer to measure the risk of diversion. Specifically, companies should obtain information about their customers that enables them to protect dual-use items from diversion, especially when the foreign customer is a broker, trading company or distribution center. Best Practice No. 4 - Companies should avoid routed export transactions when exporting and facilitating the movement of dual-use items Best Practice No. 5 - When the Destination Control Statement (DCS) is required, the Exporter should provide the appropriate Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) and the final destination where the item(s) are intended to be used, for each export to the end-user and, where relevant, to the ultimate consignee. For exports that do not require the DCS, other classification information (EAR99) and the final destination should be communicated on bills of lading, air waybills, buyer/seller contracts and other commercial documentation. For re-exporters of controlled and uncontrolled items, the same classification and destination specific information should be communicated on export documentation as well. Best Practice No. 6 - An Exporter/Re-exporter should provide the ECCN or the EAR99 classification to freight forwarders, and should report in AES the ECCN or the EAR99 classifications for all export transactions, including “No License Required” designation certifying that no license is required. Best Practice No. 7 - Companies should use information technology to the maximum extent feasible to augment “know your customer” and other due-diligence measures in combating the threats of diversion and increase confidence that shipments will reach authorized end-users for authorized end-uses. unless a long standing and trustworthy relationship has been built among the exporter, the foreign principal party in interest (FPPI), and the FPPI’s U.S. agent If you have reason to believe a violation is taking place or has occurred, you may report it to the Department of Commerce by calling its 24-hour ho line number: (800) 424-2980.

red flag indicators Use this as a check list to discover possible violations of the Export Administration Regulations • The customer or its address is similar to one of the parties found on the Commerce Department’s [BIS’s] list of denied persons. • The customer or purchasing agent is reluctant to offer information about the end-use of the item. • The product’s capabilities do not fit the buyer’s line of business, such as an order for sophisticated computers for a small bakery. • The item ordered is incompatible with the technical level of the country to which it is being shipped, such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment being shipped to a country that has no electronics industry. • The customer is willing to pay cash for a very expensive item when the terms of sale would normally call for financing. • The customer has little or no business background. • The customer is unfamiliar with the product’s performance characteristics but still wants the product. • Routine installation, training, or maintenance services are declined by the customer. • Delivery dates are vague, or deliveries are planned for out of the way destinations. • A freight forwarding firm is listed as the product’s final destination. • The shipping route is abnormal for the product and destination. • Packaging is inconsistent with the stated method of shipment or destination. When questioned, the buyer is evasive and especially unclear about whether the purchased product is for domestic use, for export, or for re-export.

BUREAU OF INDUSTRY & SECURITY GUIDELINES 1. The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) implements U.S. Government sanctions against Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria pursuant to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), either unilaterally or to implement United Nations Security Council Resolutions. The license requirements, license exceptions, and licensing policy vary depending upon the particular sanctioned destination. The corresponding country pages are intended to assist exporters and reexports with determining the export and re-export requirements pursuant to the EAR. However, the webpages are not comprehensive and do not serve as replacements for the EAR. Exporters and re-exporters should be aware that other U.S. Government agencies administer regulations that could also impact their export or reexport transactions. For example, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) also implements certain sanctions against Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Exporters and re-exporters are responsible for complying with all applicable regulatory requirements. Link for Sanctions destinations —www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/ policy-guidance/country-guidance/sanctioned-destinations 2. In consideration of the ongoing situation in Crimea, BIS has imposed export restrictions targeted at Russia’s energy and defense sectors. For example, in August 2014, BIS implemented restrictions on exports of certain items destined for Russian deep water, Arctic offshore, or shale energy exploration or production. See: 79 FR 45675 (August 6, 2014) Subsequently, BIS expanded its military end use and end user controls to impose a license requirement on various items that may not otherwise require a license if the exporter has knowledge that such items may be used by military end users or for military end uses in Russia. See: 79 FR 55608 (September 17, 2014). In addition, BIS has expanded controls on certain microprocessors for military end uses and end users in Russia (as well as other D:1 countries). See 79 FR 75044 (December 17, 2014). BIS remains concerned about efforts by front companies and other intermediaries, who are not the true final end users, to trans-ship or re-export U.S.-origin items to the Russian Federation in violation of these measures and other export controls. Even prior to the imposition of restrictions based on the situation in Crimea, front companies and other intermediaries obtained U.S.-origin items that may require a license to Russia through intermediate countries subject to a more favourable licensing policy under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). A salient example is Wassenaar Arrangement dual-use items controlled under the EAR for National Security (NS) reasons. Therefore, BIS is providing additional guidance to U.S. exporters to prevent unauthorized re-exports to Russia, especially for transactions involving NS-controlled items or items listed in Supplement No. 2 to Part 744 of the EAR, which lists items that are subject

32

2021 IFFCBANO MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY

to the military end use license requirement. As described in Supplement No. 3 to Part 732 of the EAR, whenever a person who is clearly not going to be using the item for its intended end use (e.g., a freight forwarder) is listed as an export item’s final destination, the exporter has an affirmative duty to inquire about the end use, end user, and ultimate destination of the item to ensure the transaction complies with the EAR. In addition, the exporter should pay attention to any information that may indicate an unlawful diversion is planned. This may include discrepancies in the destination country and the country from which an order is placed or payment is made. When inquiring into the ultimate destination of the item, an exporter should consider e-mail address and telephone number country codes and languages used in communications from customers or on a customer’s website. The exporter should also research the intermediate and ultimate consignees and purchaser, as well as their addresses, using business registers, company profiles, websites, and other resources. Exporters should always screen their customers against the U.S. Government’s consolidated export screening list. An interactive tool for searching this list based on entity name and address is also available. Furthermore, exporters should pay attention to the countries a freight forwarder serves, as well as the industry sectors a distributor or other non-end user customer supplies. The exporter should then determine whether a license is required based on the likely country of ultimate destination and end use and end user. The exporter should consider not only the list-based license requirements specified in Supplement No. 1 to Part 738 of the EAR (the Commerce Country Chart) in conjunction with item’s classification specified in Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the EAR (the Commerce Control List), but also the end use and end user controls in Part 744 and the embargoes and special controls in Part 746. If the exporter continues to have any doubts or concerns surrounding the end use, end user, or country of ultimate destination after exercising due diligence, the exporter should present all relevant information to BIS in the form of a license application or refrain from the transaction. Export controls are a shared responsibility between government and industry. If you have any concerns about suspicious inquiries that come to your firm, you are encouraged to contact your local BIS Export Enforcement Office. If you have any questions about export licensing requirements or submitting a license application, you may contact BIS’s Office of Exporter Services at (202) 482-4811. If contacting the Office of Exporter Services via e-mail, please include a telephone number to facilitate BIS’s response to your request.
