The second situation occurs when members of the news media wish to use TMP as authorization to take items that otherwise would require a license to destinations in Country Groups D:1 or E:2 or Sudan (See 15 CFR part 740, Supp. No. 1 for Start Printed Page 54613the constituents of each country group).
