About 4 weeks back i did a trade with a chap in the US for some warhammer bits.The stuff he sent me arrivied within a week but the stuf i sent him hasn't got there yet.My question is if my items for him don't arrive am i responsable for renburshing him?
I'm guessing that i'm not

Not sure on that, if you have a sending certificate, I don't think he can blame on you (unless he gets a pair of socks inside the box :lol: ... well, maybe you were trading socks... <_< ) but if you don't have any... mmmm, if I'd be the other guy I'd be very pissed of... and maybe you should do something to make him be more comfortable.
But tell him to wait, maybe it's delayed, and ask on the post office, they might have done some mistake.

That's the hard thing with sending international. When sending within the country I always use delivery confirmation. Trade with people who have a good record (visible on Ebay or Bartertown etc.) and yeah, it can take up to a month so hopefully he'll be patient.

I have to agree with that. Sadly(to the buyer), you are not responsible for lost mail, though I will say confidently that in my many years of trading I've had two items get lost, and one showed up almost two months later.
You should try to reach an agreement with him, and if he doesn't get the items after about 6-8 weeks I would personally reimburse him 50% at least, if he is trustworthy.
It's worth it to iterate, always send w/signature confirmation. Registered is way too expensive, especially overseas. He needs ID (in most countries) to pick up the parcel, and you will know if he got it.
