​A revised version of DoD Directive 2040.03 that covers DoD-wide policy and procedures regarding signature of foreign End Use Certificates (EUCs) by DoD personnel was published on August, 31, 2018.  

Foreign governments use EUCs to control subsequent DoD re-transfer of defense articles acquired from their government or their companies to Third Party nations or companies.  DoDD 2040.03 provides policy guidance -- as well as the requirement for higher level DoD approvals in certain circumstances -- that all DoD Components must comply with regarding EUC signature on behalf of the DoD and USG.
