WARNING ON END-USER CERTIFICATES FOR AVIATION SUPPLIES TO MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA

On 10th November, in a post on his blog, Kenneth Rijock points to the July Advisory from OFAC – Deceptive Practices by Iran with respect to the Civil Aviation Industry, and says that obtaining End-User Certificates should be a mandatory requirement of all sales to the Middle East, as well as Sub-Saharan Africa, and for these to be signed by 2 senior officers of the clients’ client, have the corporate seal, and be notarised, to verify that it is the act and deed of the recipient company.  This is because of the apparent penetration of the US aviation industry by Iran and those obtaining supplies on behalf of Iran.  End-User Certificates are intended to prove that the stated end-user of the goods is actually the end-user, should be supplied by the end-user to prove this, and are (or should be) commonly used for military, dual-use and other licensed or controlled goods.
