India Balks at U.S. End-Use Monitoring Requirements for Defense Sales

Defense News has reported that the Government of India has advised U.S. officials that India will not accept the standard End-Use Monitoring (EUM) requirements required by Section 40A of the Arms Export Control Act.

The article states:

Several Indian Defence Ministry officials said privately that New Delhi will not comply with EUMs and other export-control limitations that Washington requires of its weapon customers. They said the government has promised on several occasions not to share U.S. weapon technology with other countries. But they said India will not be told how and where to operate the equipment it buys for its own military.

Among the limitations they cited were the EUM, which would allow U.S. officials to block retransfers of the planes; the Communications and Information Security Memorandum of Agreement, which guides the sharing of sensitive information between two nations; and the Logistics Supply Agreement, which regulates things such as logistics support and fuel for fighter jets and naval warships.

A Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) spokesman is quoted as saying that the "agency has no plans to change EUM requirements or exempt any country."

The value of U.S. defense sales to India is "is set to soar from tens of millions of dollars to billions this year."
