ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains the Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies items subject to Department of Commerce export controls. This final rule revises certain entries controlled for national security reasons in Categories 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I (telecommunications), 5 Part II (information security), 6, 7, 8, and 9 to conform with changes in the List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies maintained and agreed to by governments participating in the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement). The Wassenaar Arrangement controls strategic items with the objective of improving regional and international security and stability.

The purpose of this final rule is to make the necessary changes to the Commerce Control List to implement revisions to the Wassenaar List that were agreed upon in the February 2002 meeting (and finalized in May 2002) and to make necessary revisions to reporting requirements, definitions, and the General Technology and Software Notes. The changes that affected microprocessors were published in a separate rule on January 14, 2003 (68 FR 1796).

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This rule is effective: March 5, 2003.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In July 1996, the United States and thirty-two other countries gave final approval to the establishment of a new multilateral export control arrangement, called the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement). The Wassenaar Arrangement contributes to regional and international security and stability by promoting transparency and greater responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual-use goods and technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations of such items. Participating states have committed to exchange information on exports of dual-use goods and technologies to non-participating states for the purposes of enhancing transparency and assisting in developing common understandings of the risks associated with the transfers of these items.

This rule makes the following amendments to the list of items ineligible for export or reexport under License Exception GOV, to conform with revisions to the Wassenaar Arrangement's Annex 2 of the List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies:

  • For exports and reexports of commodities and software to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM), reexports by IAEA and EURATOM for official international safeguard use:

(1) The following items are removed from the list of ineligible commodities and software: 1C012 (because commodities classified as 1C012 are under Department of State jurisdiction and must comply with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)), 9A011 (because commodities classified as 9A011 are under Department of State jurisdiction and must comply with the ITAR), 9D002 (because the ineligible software is under State Department jurisdiction as it pertains to production software for 9A011, which is under Department of State jurisdiction and must comply with ITAR), and 9D004 (because this software has been removed from Annex 2 of the Wassenaar Arrangement List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies List);

(2) The following items are revised within the list of ineligible commodities and software:

(a) Narrowed the scope of 4D001 to only include software specially designed for the development or production of digital computers controlled by 4A003.b and having a CTP exceeding 190,000 MTOPS;

(b) Added Note that applies to paragraph 740.11(a)(2)(iii) that reads as follows: “Nationals of countries in Country Group E:1 may not physically or computationally access computers that have been enhanced by “electronic assemblies”, which have been exported or reexported under License Exception GOV and have been used to enhance such computers by aggregation of “computing elements” so that the CTP of the aggregation exceeds the CTP parameter set forth in ECCN 4A003.b. of the Commerce Control List in Supplement No. 1 to part 774 of the EAR, without prior authorization from the Bureau of Industry and Security.”

(c) Revised references to 5A001.b.4 to read 5A001.b.5, because the paragraph was redesignated in 5A001;

(d) Clarified the scope of 5D001.a; and

(e) Clarified the scope of 9D001 to harmonize with those items removed from the list of ineligible items.

(3) Added processing equipment, specially designed for real time application bottom or bay cable systems controlled by 6A001.a.2.f to the list of ineligible commodities.

  • For exports or reexports of items for official use within national territory by agencies of cooperating governments, and exports and reexports of items for diplomatic and consular missions of a cooperating government located in any country in Country Group B:

(1) The following items are removed from the list of ineligible commodities and software: 1C012 (because commodities classified as 1C012 are under Department of State jurisdiction and must comply with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)), 9A011 (because commodities classified as 9A011 are under Department of State jurisdiction and must comply with the ITAR), 9D002 (because the ineligible software is under State Department jurisdiction as it pertains to production software for 9A011, which is under Department of State jurisdiction and must comply with ITAR), and 9D004 (because this software has been removed from Annex 2 of the Wassenaar Arrangement List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies List);

(2) The following items are revised within the list of ineligible commodities and software:

(a) Narrowed the scope of 4D001 to only include software specially designed for the development or production of digital computers controlled by 4A003.b and having a CTP exceeding 190,000 MTOPS;

(b) Revised references to 5A001.b.4 to read 5A001.b.5, because the paragraph was redesignated in 5A001;

(c) Clarified the scope of 5D001.a;

(d) Clarified the scope of 9D001 to harmonize with those items removed from the list of ineligible items;

(e) Narrowed the scope of 1E001 by removing 1C012; and Start Printed Page 10587

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, unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget Control Number. This rule involves a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). This collection has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 0694-0088, “Multi-Purpose Application,” which carries a burden hour estimate of 45 minutes for a manual submission and 40 minutes for an electronic submission.

3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism as that term is defined under E.O. 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 interim rule. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule under the Administrative Procedure Act 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 Sharron Cook, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, PO Box 273, Washington, DC 20044.
