ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by revising certain entries on its control list that are controlled for nuclear nonproliferation (NP) reasons. This final rule revises these entries to make them conform more closely to the format used in the technical descriptions of items identified in the Annex to the “Guidelines for Transfers of Nuclear-Related Dual-Use Equipment, Material, and Related Technology” (the Annex), which is published by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Member countries of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), which includes the United States, have established export licensing procedures for the transfer of items identified in the Annex.

This final rule also revises the types of controls and the scope of the controls that apply to a number of entries on the Commerce Control List (CCL). In addition, this rule amends the “Related Controls” paragraphs in a number of entries by adding references to related items that are either controlled under other entries on the CCL or controlled by other U.S. Government agencies.

As a result of the admission of Belarus, Cyprus, Slovenia, and Turkey to the Nuclear Suppliers Group, this rule adds these four countries to Country Group A:4, which identifies the member countries of the Nuclear Suppliers Group. These four countries are also added to the definition of the term “Nuclear Suppliers Group” in the EAR. The addition of these four countries will lessen the administrative burden on U.S. exporters by decreasing the number of items that require an export license to these countries for nuclear nonproliferation (NP) reasons.

DATES:

This rule is effective August 29, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains the Commerce Control List (CCL), Supplement No. 1 to part 774 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), which contains a number of items that are controlled for nuclear nonproliferation (NP) reasons. The items on the CCL that are controlled for NP reasons are referred to as “The Nuclear Referral List” and are subject to the licensing requirements and policies described in § 742.3 of the EAR. Most of the items on the Nuclear Referral List are identified in the Annex to the “Guidelines for Transfers of Nuclear-Related Dual-Use Equipment, Material, and Related Technology” (the Annex), which is published by the International Atomic Energy Agency in INFCIRC/254/Revision 4/Part 2. The United States, together with other participating countries in the Nuclear Suppliers Group, agreed to establish export licensing procedures to regulate exports and reexports of items identified in the Annex in accordance with the Nuclear Suppliers Guidelines.

This final rule amends the following Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the CCL, which contain items controlled for NP reasons, by reformatting the control language in these ECCNs to conform more closely with the format used to describe such items in the Annex: 1A202, 1A226, 1A227, 1B201, 1B229, 1B230, 1B232, 1C202, 1C225 to 1C230, 1C232 to 1C237, 1C239, 1C240, 2A225, 2A226, 2B204, 2B206, 2B207, 2B209, 2B225 to 2B228, 2B230 to 2B232, 3A201, 3A225 to 3A227, 3A229 to 3A231, 3A233, 6A202, 6A205, and 6A225. The following ECCNs are amended by revising the ECCN heading to conform more closely with the control language used in the Annex or with the scope of controls described in the Annex: 1B226, 1B231, 1B233, 1C216, 1C231, 1D101, 1D201, 1E101, 1E102, 1E201, 1E203, 2A291, 2B001, 2B004, 2B009, 2B290, 2B350, 2D101, 2E101, 2E201, 3E201, 6A005, and 6E201. ECCNs 2B201, 3A232, and 6A203 are amended by revising the List of Items Controlled for each ECCN to conform more closely with the control language used in the Annex.

This rule also revises the Related Controls paragraphs in a number of ECCNs containing items subject to NP controls by adding references to one or more of the following: (1) Related items controlled under other ECCNs on the CCL, (2) related items subject to the export licensing authority of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and (3) related items subject to the export licensing authority of the Office of Defense Trade Controls (DTC), U.S. Department of State. The Related Controls paragraphs in the following ECCNs are revised: 1A002, 1A202, 1A225 to 1A227, 1B001, 1B101, 1B201, 1B225 to 1B233, 1C002, 1C010, 1C116, 1C202, 1C210, 1C216, 1C225 to 1C240, 1D001, 1D101, 1D201, 1E001, 2A225, 2A226, 2A290 to 2A293, 2B001, 2B004, 2B006, 2B007, 2B009, 2B104, 2B109, 2B116, 2B201, 2B204, 2B206, 2B207, 2B209, 2B225 to 2B232, 2B290, 2B350, 2B991, 2D001, 2D002, 2D101, 2D201, 2D290, 3A201, 3A225 to 3A233, 3A292, 6A003, 6A005, 6A202, 6A203, 6A205, 6A225, 6A226, and 6D001.

In addition, this rule revises the Related Definitions paragraph in the following ECCNs: 1A227, 1B229, 1C202, 1C210, 1C216, 1C225, 1C233, 2A226, 2B204, 3A230, 3A225, and 3A229. The text has been removed from the Related Definitions paragraph for ECCN 2B206 and much of it has been included in a new ECCN Controls paragraph for this ECCN, while the text in the Related Definitions paragraphs for ECCNs 2B225 and 3A232 has been moved to new Technical Notes in these entries. The text in the Related Definitions paragraph for ECCN 6E201, which described the scope of controls for this ECCN, has been removed and the scope of controls for ECCN 6E201 is now described in a new ECCN Controls paragraph.

In order to clarify the kinds of items that are subject to the controls specified in the CCL (e.g., NP), this rule adds ECCN Controls paragraphs to the following ECCNs: 1B226, 1C216, 1C226, 1C230, 1C232 to 1C237, 1C240, 2B006, 2B109, 2B206, 2B207, 2B226, 2B350, 2D201, 3A229, 3A232, 6A225, and 6E201.

This final rule also revises the types of controls and/or the scope of certain controls that apply to the following ECCNs: 0D001 (now contains only DTC and NRC items), 0E001 (now contains only DOE and DTC items), 1B101 (scope of NP controls clarified), 1C235 (NP/AT controls added to tritium that is not subject to NRC export licensing authority), 1D101 (NP controls added to “software” for 1B101.a), 1E001 (NP controls removed from “technology” for 1C001 and added to “technology” for 1C002, 1C235, 1C239, and 1C240), 1E101 (NP controls added to “technology” for 1C116, 1D001 and 1D101), 1E102 (NP controls added to “technology” for 1D001 and 1D101), 2A226 (CB controls added to valves that meet or exceed 2B350.g specifications), 2A292 (CB controls added to valves that Start Printed Page 55595meet or exceed 2B350.g specifications), 2B004 (scope of NP controls clarified), 2B007 (NP controls expanded to apply to 2B007.b, as well as 2B007.c), 2B009 (MT/NP controls clarified), 2B104 (NP controls added to “isostatic presses”), 2B109 (NP controls clarified to apply only to items that meet or exceed 2B209 specifications), 2B116 (NP controls clarified to apply to electrodynamic vibration test systems in 2B116.a and to all items in 2B116.b, .c, and .d), 2D101 (NP controls added to “software” for 2B104, 2B109, and 2B116; NS controls removed), 2E001 (MT controls added for “technology” for 2B105 and 2B117; NP1 controls added for “technology” for 2A225, 2A226, 2B116, 2B201, 2B227, 2B230, 2B232, 2D101, and 2D202; NP2 controls added for “technology” for 2A291 to 2A293, 2B290, and 2D290), 2E002 (MT controls added for “technology” for 2B105 and 2B117; NP1 controls added for “technology” for 2A225, 2A226, 2B116, 2B201, 2B227, 2B230, and 2B232; NP2 controls added for “technology” for 2A291 to 2A293 and 2B290), 2E101 (MT controls added to “technology” for 2B105, 2B117, and 2D001; NP controls added to “technology” for 2B009, 2D001, and 2D101), 2E201 (NP controls removed from “technology” for 2B008 and added to “technology” for 2B206 and 2D002; CB controls added to “technology” for valves controlled by 2A226 that meet or exceed 2B350.g specifications), 2E290 (CB controls added to “technology” for valves controlled by 2A292 that meet or exceed 2B350.g specifications), 3A001 (NP controls added for 3A001.e.2 and e.3 that meet or exceed specifications in 3A201.a and 3A201.b, respectively), 3E001 (NP controls added to “technology” for 3A001.e.2 and .e.3), 3E201 (NP controls added to “technology” for 3A001.e.2 and .e.3), 6A005 (NP controls added to 6A005.c.2.b.2.a; NP controls clarified for 6A005.a.1.c, .a.2.a, .a.4.c, .a.6, .c.1.b, .c.2.c.2, and .d.2.c), and 6E001 (NP controls added to “technology” for 6D001).

Eligibility for License Exception LVS is removed for items controlled for NP reasons in the following ECCNs: 1A002, 1C002, and 3A001. License Exception LVS authorizes shipments of limited value without a license to destinations in Country Group B (Supplement No. 1 to part 740 of the EAR), provided that the net value of the commodities included in the same order and controlled under the same ECCN on the CCL does not exceed the amount specified in the LVS paragraph for the applicable ECCN.

In ECCN 1C236, which controls certain alpha-emitting radionuclides, the unit of measure is changed from “millicuries” to “gigabecquerels”. The unit of measure is the standard applied by BIS to determine the amount of an item that will be authorized for export or reexport under a license.

This final rule also completely revises ECCN 0B003 by removing the original control language, which predated the adoption of the controls in the NSG Trigger List that apply to exports of nuclear material, equipment, and technology. ECCN 0B003 now contains plants for the conversion of uranium and equipment specially designed or prepared for such plants, all of which remain subject to the export licensing authority of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. These plants were previously contained in ECCN 0B009, which is removed from the CCL. This change is part of BIS's effort to make the numbering of the CCL entries conform more closely with the List of Dual-Use Items and Technology implemented by the European Union (i.e., Annex 1 to Council Regulation (EC) No. 1334/2000 of June 22, 2000, as amended, which established a Community regime for the control of exports of dual-use items and technology). BIS anticipates that greater uniformity between the CCL and the EU dual-use list will decrease the administrative burden on exporters and lessen the chances of inadvertent noncompliance with various export control requirements.

To further conform the numbering system in the CCL with the EU dual-use list, this final rule revises ECCN 2B104 and adds new ECCNs 2B105 and 2B117. ECCN 2B104, which previously controlled equipment and process controls designed or modified for densification and pyrolysis of structural composite rocket nozzles and reentry vehicle nose tips, now controls only “isostatic presses” (other than those controlled by 2B004) that have all of the following characteristics: (1) A maximum working pressure of 69 MPa or greater, (2) designed to achieve and maintain a controlled thermal environment of 873 K (600° C) or greater, and (3) a chamber cavity with an inside diameter of 254 mm or greater. New ECCN 2B105 controls CVD furnaces (other than those controlled by 2B005.a) that are designed or modified for the densification of carbon-carbon composites. New ECCN 2B117 controls equipment and process controls (other than those controlled by 2B004, 2B005.a, 2B104, or 2B105) that are designed or modified for densification and pyrolysis of structural composite rocket nozzles and reentry vehicle nose tips. ECCN 2B104 is now controlled for NP, as well as MT (missile technology) and AT (anti-terrorism) reasons, while new ECCNs 2B105 and 2B117 are controlled for MT and AT reasons.

This rule also removes ECCN 0B008 and transfers the items previously controlled by this ECCN (i.e., simulators and ultrasonic or eddy current test equipment specially designed for nuclear reactors) to ECCN 2A291, which controls certain equipment related to nuclear material handling and processing.

Finally, this rule amends the EAR to add Belarus, Cyprus, Slovenia, and Turkey as the four newest participating countries in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (which now includes a total of 39 countries) by revising Supplement No. 1 to part 740 (Country Groups) to add Belarus, Cyprus, Slovenia, and Turkey to Country Group A:4 (Nuclear Suppliers Group) and by revising Supplement No. 1 to Part 738 (Commerce Country Chart) to remove the licensing requirements for these four countries under NP Column 1 in conformance with the licensing policy that applies to other NSG member countries. Please note that exports of NP-controlled items to these countries may require a license for other reasons set forth in the CCL or elsewhere in the EAR. This rule also amends § 772.1, “Definitions of terms as used in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)”, by adding these four countries to the definition of the term “Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG)”.

Saving Clause

Shipments of items removed from License Exception LVS eligibility or NLR authorization as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting carrier, or en route aboard a carrier to a port of export, on August 29, 2002, pursuant to actual orders for export to a foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous License Exception LVS eligibility or NLR authorization provisions so long as they have been exported from the United States before September 30, 2002. Any such items not actually exported before midnight, on September 30, 2002, require a license in accordance with this regulation.

Rulemaking Requirements

1. This rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Start Printed Page 55596Reduction Act, unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. This rule contains collections of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). These collections have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget under Control Numbers 0694-0088 and 0694-0117.

3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132.

4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for public participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable because this regulation involves a military and foreign affairs function of the United States (Sec. 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule under 5 U.S.C. 553 or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable.

Therefore, this regulation is issued in final form. Although there is no formal comment period, public comments on this regulation are welcome on a continuing basis. Comments should be submitted to Willard Fisher, Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce, Room 2705, 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.

Note:

3A201.b does not control magnets specially designed for and exported “as parts of” medical nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging systems. The phrase “as part of” does not necessarily mean physical part in the same shipment; separate shipments from different sources are allowed, provided the related export documents clearly specify that the shipments are dispatched “as part of” the imaging systems.

c. Flash X-ray generators or pulsed electron accelerators having either of the following sets of characteristics:

c.1. An accelerator peak electron energy of 500 keV or greater, but less than 25 MeV, and with a “figure of merit” (K) of 0.25 or greater; or

Note:

3A201.c does not control accelerators that are component parts of devices designed for purposes other than electron beam or X-ray radiation (electron microscopy, for example) nor those designed for medical purposes.

Technical Notes: (1) The “figure of merit” K is defined as: K = 1.7 × 103 V2.65 Q. V is the peak electron energy in million electron volts. If the accelerator beam pulse duration is less than or equal to 1 μs, then Q is the total accelerated charge in Coulombs. If the accelerator beam pulse duration is greater than 1 μs, then Q is the maximum accelerated charge in 1 μs. Q equals the intergral of i with respect to t, over the lesser of 1 μs or the time duration of the beam pulse Q= ∫ idt), where i is beam current in amperes and t is time in seconds.

(2) “Peak power” = (peak potential in volts) × (peak beam current in amperes).

(3) In machines based on microwave accelerating cavities, the time duration of the beam pulse is the lesser of 1 μs or the duration of the bunched beam packet resulting from one microwave modulator pulse.

(4) In machines based on microwave accelerating cavities, the peak beam current is the average current in the time duration of a bunched beam packet.

ECCN Controls: This entry does not control detonators using only primary explosives, such as lead azide.

Items:

a. Electrically driven explosive detonators, as follows:

a.1. Exploding bridge (EB);

a.2. Exploding bridge wire (EBW);

a.3. Slapper;

a.4. Exploding foil initiators (EFI);

b. Arrangements using single or multiple detonators designed to nearly simultaneously initiate an explosive surface over an area greater than 5,000 mm\2\ from a single firing signal with an initiation timing spread over the surface of less than 2.5 μs.

Technical Note: The detonators controlled by this entry all utilize a small electrical conductor (bridge, bridge wire or foil) that explosively vaporizes when a fast, high-current electrical pulse is passed through it. In nonslapper types, the exploding conductor starts a chemical detonation in a contacting high-explosive material, such as PETN (Pentaerythritoltetranitrate). In slapper detonators, the explosive vaporization of the electrical conductor drives a flyer or slapper across a gap and the impact of the slapper on an explosive starts a chemical detonation. The slapper in some designs is driven by a magnetic force. The term exploding foil detonator may refer to either a EB or a slapper-type detonator. Also, the word initiator is sometimes used in place of the word detonator.
