SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK
ON APPLICATION 050202451

REF: 2006 BLUE LANTERN GUIDEBOOK

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 05020451 for
the export of united States Munitions List (USML)-controlled
Radar Altimeter Indicators to Malaysia. 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: To substantiate the bona fides of
unfamiliar Foreign Intermediate Consignee Qiblatin Synergy
Sdn Bhd in the proposed transaction. Also, there is as
discrepancy between quantity of Indicators listed on license
application and supporting documents.


4. Action: Department requests that Post make inquiries
within the Government of Malaysia to confirm the bona fides
of Qiblatin Synergy Sdn Bhd in the proposed transaction. If
possible, conduct a site visit to assess the company's
reliability as a recipient of USML items as well as its
operations and on-site security. Emphasize that the
unauthorized re-export or retransfer of USML items is
strictly prohibited. As a discrepancy exists between the
amounts listed on the license application and supporting
documentation, confirm quantity of Radar Altimeter Indicators
that were ordered by end-user for the purpose stated on the
application. See paragraph six, below, reference Qiblatin
Synergy's purchase order. Determine whether any other
Malaysian-based firms are involved in the procurement of the
items.

The following questions are provided for guidance:

- Please confirm an order for the items listed on license

050202451.

- Does Qiblatin Synergy understand the restrictions against
the unauthorized re-export or retransfer of U.S.-origin
defense articles?

- Does Qiblatin Synergy serve as a broker of USML articles
with any countries besides Malaysia? If so, where? If your
company has offices abroad, where are they located? Has this
company ever used any other names?

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


- What other products are sold by this company?

- How long has Qiblatin Synergy been involved in business
operations with the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF); do you
have a regular business relationship with RMAF?


End Action Request.
