      1. In respect of EAR Items: “These items are controlled by the U.S. Government and authorized for export only to the country of ultimate destination for use by the ultimate consignee or end-user(s) herein identified. They may not be resold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of, to any other country or to any person other than the authorized ultimate consignee or end-user(s), either in their original form or after being incorporated into other items, without first obtaining approval from the U.S. Government or as otherwise authorized by U.S. law and regulations.” In addition, the Supplier must also provide the licence number(s) or license exception utilised and the ECCN for all 9x515 or 600 series items being exported, re-exported or transferred (in-country).

    6. Any outer package containing the Controlled Material should be marked/labelled with an Export Control statement as described in clauses 25(d) and 25(e) above as appropriate to the nature, size, packaging, etc. of the item.
    7. Where practical, the Supplier shall segregate deliveries of ITAR or EAR Controlled Material from other deliveries, and shall not mix ITAR Controlled Material with EAR Controlled Material on the same licences, agreements or authorisations unless permitted by US laws and regulations pursuant to Export Control Reform.
    8. Without limiting the foregoing, the Supplier shall only use Controlled Material in accordance with the licensed authorisation. The Supplier shall only use ITAR Technical Data or EAR Technology received from Power Components in the performance of the work required to deliver the Order, and shall not transfer or otherwise provide access to any ITAR or EAR Controlled Material , to include transfer to any individual, company or organisation (including lower-tier sub-contractors), without the authority of a US Government export licence, agreement, or other authorisation, such as an applicable licence exemption or exception. The Supplier will strictly comply with the conditions in any such approval and in the export licence or other Government authorisation for such disclosure. The restrictions on the transfer of export controlled data apply equally to both data furnished by Power Components and to any such data incorporated in documents, software or hardware generated by the Supplier. Any rights in the data may not be acquired by the Supplier unless expressly authorised pursuant to an export licence, export agreement or otherwise provided in the ITAR or EAR. Additionally, no disclosure of data furnished by Power Components can be made unless and until Power Components has considered the request and provided its written approval through contractually authorised channels. Technical Data exported from the United States may not be transferred to another person except pursuant to specific provisions in the regulations (such as ITAR 22 C.F.R 126.18), as specifically authorised in a license or agreement (e.g. pursuant to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in the case of sub-licensees), or where prior written approval of the Department of State has been obtained.
    9. The Supplier hereby authorises Power Components to disclose any and all Confidential Information to government authorities with jurisdiction over such Confidential Information as may be reasonably necessary for the purpose of disclosing, resolving or remediating any violation or potential violation of applicable export control laws or regulations, as provided in clause 8(a)(ii).
    10. The Supplier shall immediately notify Power Components if the Supplier is or becomes identified either individually or collectively on any list of denied, debarred, embargoed, blocked, prohibited, specially designated, sanctioned or otherwise ineligible parties maintained by any government or international organisation or, becomes ineligible to contract with the US Government, or if the Supplier’s export privileges are otherwise denied, suspended or revoked in whole or in part by any government entity or agency.
    11. If engaged in the business of either exporting or manufacturing (whether exporting or not) US defence articles or defence services (as defined in the ITAR 22 C.F.R 120.6 and 120.9 respectively), the Supplier represents and warrants that it maintains an effective export/import compliance program in accordance with the ITAR and, if located in the US, that it is registered with the US Department of State as required by the ITAR.
    12. If engaged in brokering activities within the meaning of the ITAR (22 C.F.R. 129), the Supplier represents and warrants that it is registered with the US Department of State as required by the ITAR and has obtained any necessary approval with respect to the Supplies provided in the Order.
    13. If US defense articles or defense services subject to the ITAR form a part of the Order, the Supplier recognises and accepts that the Supplier and Power Components have disclosure requirements when making applications for the export, re-export or re-transfer of US defense articles or defense services valued in an amount of US$500,000 or more, which are being sold commercially or as a result of a contract with the US Department of Defense to or for the use of the armed forces of a non-U.S. country or international organisation, and for which disclosure requirements relate to the payment of any political contribution, fee or commission, directly or indirectly, whether in cash or in kind, to or at the direction of any person in order to solicit, promote or otherwise to secure the Order or any related orders. In this context, when requested to do so by Power Components, the Supplier shall make a written certification to Power Components in a timely manner and not later than 20 days after receipt of such request regarding:
      1. whether in relation to the Order or any related orders the Supplier or its vendors (as defined in 22 C.F.R. 130.8) have made, or offered or agreed to make: (i) any political contribution, including any loan, gift, donation or other payment of US$1,000 or more to or for the benefit of, or at the direction of, any foreign candidate, committee, political party, political faction, or government or governmental subdivision, or any individual elected, appointed or otherwise designated as an employee or officer thereof; or (ii) any fee or commission, including any loan, gift, donation or other payment of US$1,000 or more; and
      2. if so, the Supplier shall identify, as provided in 22 C.F.R. 130.12: (i) the amount of each Political Contribution paid, or offered or agreed to be paid, or the amount of each Fee or Commission paid, or offered or agreed to be paid; (ii) whether each reported payment was in cash or in kind; (iii) the date or dates on which each reported amount was paid, or offered or agreed to be paid; (iv) the recipient of each such amount paid, or intended recipient if not yet paid, including name, nationality, address and principal place of business, employer and title, and relationship, if any, to the Supplier and to any purchaser or end-user; and (v) the person who paid, or offered or agreed to pay such amount; and
      3. the Supplier shall notify Power Components immediately if the circumstances described in clauses 25(m)(i) or 25(m)(ii) change, and shall respond promptly to any written inquiry made by Power Components seeking to confirm or update the Supplier’s certification as provided in this clause 25(m).
    14. Where the Supplier is a signatory, sub-licensee or consignee under an export licence, agreement or other authorisation, the Supplier shall provide immediate written notification to Power Components in the event of changed circumstances affecting the said licence or agreement.
    15. AT Power Components’ direction, the Supplier shall return or Systems destroy all of the ITAR Technical Data and/or EAR Technology or other Controlled Material exported to the Supplier pursuant to the Order upon fulfilment of its terms, send written confirmation of the destruction to Power Components within five (5) working days of the destruction and create and maintain the records required under the ITAR and EAR.
    16. The Supplier shall indemnify each Indemnified Party Systems against any and all liability, loss, claims, costs, expenses or damages of any kind whatsoever incurred by each Indemnified Party as a result of or in connection with any breach by the Supplier, its employees, agents or sub-contractors of this clause 25.
