Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by removing the special controls on the export and reexport of arms-related items imposed on July 14, 1998 on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) (FRY). Consequently, arms embargo-based licensing requirements for exports and reexports of certain items subject to the EAR (e.g., water cannon) to the FRY are removed, and a case-by-case license review policy is reinstated for the export and reexport of items controlled for regional stability and crime control reasons. This rule is consistent with United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1367 of September 10, 2001, which terminated the international arms embargo against the FRY mandated by UNSC Resolution 1160 of March 3, 1998. This rule also makes a minor clarification to the arms embargo-based controls in place with respect to Rwanda pursuant to UNSC Resolution 918 of May 17, 1994.

DATES:

This rule is effective November 25, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Consistent with United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1160 of March 3, 1998, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), formerly the Bureau of Export Administration (BXA), imposed new controls on the export and reexport of arms-related items subject to the EAR to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) (FRY). UNSC Resolution 1160 mandated an embargo on the sale or supply of arms and arms-related matériel to the FRY. On July 14, 1998, BIS issued a rule consistent with the UNSC embargo against the FRY, applying a policy of denial on the export and reexport of items controlled for crime control and regional stability reasons and making additional items subject to control (e.g, certain shotgun shells, military helmets, water cannon and certain civil aircraft). BIS placed the specific provisions that implemented the embargo in section 746.9 of the EAR.

On September 10, 2001, in Resolution 1367, the UNSC terminated the international arms embargo against the FRY. Consistent with UNSC Resolution 1367, this rule removes the provisions in section 746.9 of the EAR that implemented the arms embargo against the FRY. With the publication of this rule, BIS is removing the UN arms embargo-based license requirements for the export and reexport of items controlled under Export Classification Control Numbers (ECCNs) 0A018, 0A984, 0A985, 0A986, 0A987, 0A988, 0B986, 0E018, 0E984, 1A005, 1B018, 1C018, 1C992 1D018, 2A993, 2B018, 2D018, 2E018, 6A002, 6A003, 6A018, 6E001, 6E002, 8A018, 9A018, 9A991, 9D018, 9E018 to the FRY. BIS is removing altogether ECCN 0A989, water cannon and specially designed components for water cannon, because it was a UN arms embargo-based control applying solely to the FRY. BIS also is reinstating a case-by-case licensing policy for the export and reexport of these items controlled for crime control or regional stability reasons destined to the FRY.

This rule also adds a new note number 4 in the License Exception sections of entries for “Technology” controlled by ECCNs 6E001 and 6E002, making License Exception Technology and Software under Restriction (TSR) unavailable for exports or reexports of 6E001 and 6E002 “Technology” to Rwanda, which is still subject to a UN arms embargo pursuant to UNSC Resolution 918 of May 17, 1994. With respect to Rwanda, “Technology” controlled by ECCN 6E001 is for the “development” of equipment, materials or “software” controlled by Category 6A002 or 6A003, and “Technology” controlled by ECCN 6E002 is for the “production” of equipment or materials controlled by 6A002 or 6A003. The license requirements for Rwanda are set forth in section 746.8 of the EAR.

Finally, this rule makes changes to sections 732.3 and 758.1 of the EAR to reflect the removal of the UN arms embargo-based controls against the FRY and removes Supplement 2 to part 746 describing international arms embargoes administered by the Department of State. For information on such embargoes, exporters are advised to consult with the Department of State, Office of Defense Trade Controls.

Rulemaking Requirements

1. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of E.O. 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 Reduction Act (PRA), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. This rule involves collections of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) These collections have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 0694-0088, “Multi-Purpose Application,” which carries a burden hour estimate of 40 minutes to prepare and submit electronically and 45 minutes to submit manually on form BIS-748P. Send comments regarding these burden Start Printed Page 70546estimates or any other aspect of these collections of information, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to OMB Desk Officer, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; and to the Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20044.

3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications sufficient to warrant preparation of a Federalism assessment under 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 (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 Sheila Quarterman, Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20044.
