SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: POST-SHIPMENT END-USE CHECK 
ON LICENSE 050106987 
 
¶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 post-shipment check on license 050106987 for the export of 
rifles to Uruguay.  Post is requested to complete this Blue 
Lantern check within 45 days. Lack of response to a Blue 
Lantern check will affect pending and future licenses 
involving parties to this license. 
 
¶3. Reason for Request: To establish the bona fides of 
end-user Pinor SRL and foreign intermediate consignee 
Novacargo Services. 
 
¶4. Action Request:  Post is requested to verify that the 
rifles listed below were received by the Pinor SRL (NOTE: 
This export license expired before the company could export 
all the firearms listed on the license, so only 59 rifles 
should have been exported).  Post is also requested to 
establish the bona fides of Pinor SRL and Novacargo Services 
by making inquiries to representatives of the companies and 
appropriate local authorities.  The following points are 
included for guidance: 
 
(To Pinor SRL) 
 
--When was your company established and who are its 
principals? 
 
--What products and services does your company provide?  Who 
are your regular customers and where do they reside? 
 
--What are you annual sales of U.S.-origin firearms? 
 
--What is your relationship with Novacargo Services?  Are 
they receiving any fees or commissions for your services in 
this transaction?  If so, please provide any details and 
relevant documentation you may have. 
 
--Are you familiar with the regulations governing the import 
of U.S.-origin defense articles, including restrictions on 
re-transfer or re-export? 
 
(To Novacargo Services) 
 
--When was your company established and who are its 
principals? 
 
--What products and services does your company provide?  Who 
are your regular customers and where do they reside? 
 
--What is your role in this transaction?  What is your 
relationship with Pinor SRL? 
 
--Are you receiving any fees or commissions for your services 
in this transaction?  If so, please provide details and any 
relevant documentation. 
 
--Are you familiar with the regulations governing the import 
of U.S.-origin defense articles, including restrictions on 
re-transfer or re-export? 
 
(To Local Authorities) 
 
--Is Pinor SRL properly authorized to import and sell defense 
articles in Uruguay? 
 
--Do you have any information on Pinor SRL or Novacargo 
Services that would question their reliability as recipients 
of U.S. defense articles? 
 
In its reply, Post is encouraged to comment on any 
information pertinent to this transaction such as security of 
facilities, end-use, and concerns about the entities involved.
