Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

On September 22, 2004, the Bureau of Industry and Security published a Federal Register document that, inter alia, removed an Indian entity from the Entity List and revised licensing policies for other Indian entities in the Export Administration Regulations. That notice was misprinted, containing typographical errors in the statement of licensing policy with respect to two Indian Department of Atomic Energy entities that are subject to International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards and in statements of Federal Register citations amending the Entity List. Additionally, the preamble in that notice should have stated that the licensing policy for the “balance of plant” portion of Indian nuclear facilities subject to International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards (Rajasthan 1 & 2 and Tarapur 1 & 2) is a presumption of approval for items not multilaterally controlled for nuclear proliferation reasons. This document corrects those errors.

DATES:

This rule is effective September 23, 2004.
