As I wrote on this blog on Dec 07, 2011, an export control violation was reported. The company name is Kureha Corporation, and its subsidiary Krefine Co., Ltd.
They intentionally made invoice value lower than license exemption value, then exported controlled items (Carbon fiber) to China and Singapore.
On Feb 27, 2012, METI announced and post warning letter to these companies on the web site.
The penalty does not involve any monetary penalty, nor imprisonment of representative directors. It is warning only. METI, however, revoked their General Bulk License, and have them make commitment to improve their internal compliance program in order to avoid further violation.
