the foreign consignee to assess its operations, reliability,
and on-site security. If a site visit is not possible, please
inform PM/DTCC case officer. The following questions provide
suggested guidance:

(To Korean Air M & E Division)

- Confirm receipt of USML items that were shipped under
license 05-050020811.

- How long has your company been in the business of
importing and selling defense articles?

- Are you familiar with the restrictions against the
unauthorized re-export or retransfer of U.S.-origin defense
articles?

- What other products are sold by your company?

- Who are your regular customers and where are they located?


(To Korea Civil Aviation Safety Administration)

- Please confirm an order for the listed items on license
application 05-050020811.
