Taylor-Thank you for your concern since this is a technicality that can show a large discrepancy if not reported correctly. According to Appendix M of the AESTIR, the required conversion is stated: 2.20462262lbs = 1kg This conversion is extracted from the Federal Standards 376A, which is used government wide. If the conversion does not affect the shipping weight to the nearest whole number then the smaller conversion factor will do, but when in doubt, be sure to use the entire conversion rate of 2.20462262. Thanks again ad I hope this answers your question. If not, you may want to contact our Rules and Regulations Branch on our call center at 800-549-0595 opt.3

Peter - Assuming you know which foreign currency is reported on the invoice(i.e. Japanese Yen, Euro, etc.), you will need to use a currency converter like the one found on www.OANDA.com to find out what the correct conversion would be in USD. Certain European currencies such as the Italian Lira have been replaced by the Euro. The link provided has a currency converter you can use: http://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/ I hope this answers your question.
