Bureau of Political-Military Affairs; Export of Non-lethal Defense Articles to Indonesia
EFFECTIVE DATES: September 19, 2001.
Notice is hereby given that requests for export and retransfer of nonlethal defense articles and spare parts to Indonesia pursuant to section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act will be considered on a case bycase basis.
On October 14, 1999, a Federal Register notice was published (64 FR 55805) that suspended all licenses and approvals to export or otherwise transfer defense articles and defense services to Indonesia, except for certain exports related to commercial communication satellites and Y2K compliance activities that were not for the Indonesian military. The October 14, 1999 Federal Register notice set forth a policy of denial for new export requests except those that met the exception.
A Federal Register notice was published on January 25, 2001 (66 FR 7836) that permitted review, on a casebycase basis, of requests for the export of C130 spare parts to Indonesia, including for the Government of Indonesia. On March 22, 2001, a Federal Register notice was published (66 FR 16085) that expanded the review, on a casebycase basis, of defense articles/defense services exported to Indonesia for ultimate enduse by a thirdcountry.
This Notice expands categories of defense articles/defense services eligible for consideration for export/transfer to Indonesia, on a case bycase basis, to include: (a) Nonlethal defense articles and spare parts; and (b) nonlethal, safetyofuse spare parts for lethal end items. An example of safetyofuse items would be cartridge actuated devices, propellant actuated devices and technical manuals for military aircraft for purposes of enhancing the safety of the aircraft crew. For nonlethal defense enditems, no distinction will be made between Indonesia's existing and new inventory.
For the purposes of this policy, ``nonlethal defense articles''
means an article that is not a weapon, ammunition, or other equipment
or material that is designed to inflict serious bodily harm or death (see, e.g. 10 U.S.C. 2557).
