SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to make various technical corrections and clarifications to the EAR as a result of a systematic review of the Commerce Control List (CCL) that was conducted by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) beginning in 2007. This rule is the first phase of the regulatory implementation of the results of that review. This rule focuses on making needed technical corrections and clarifications to the CCL. The BIS CCL review benefited from input received from BIS's Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) and public comments received in response to a BIS notice of inquiry (July 17, 2007, 72 FR 39052).

BIS intends to publish another rule later this year that will implement the Start Printed Page 21036second phase of the regulatory implementation of the results of that systematic review of the CCL. That rule is tentatively titled, “Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations based upon a Systematic Review of the Commerce Control List” (RIN: 0694-AE33). That second rule will include substantive changes to the CCL.

As a part of the implementation phase of the CCL review, the agency is also taking other non-regulatory actions to improve the public's understanding of the CCL. These BIS actions involve publishing certain advisory opinions and creating new web guidance to provide greater clarity to exporters and reexporters regarding existing provisions of the CCL. BIS has also created a new process whereby BIS has stated its intention to conduct similar types of systematic reviews of the CCL in the future in order to continuously improve the CCL.

This rule makes the following technical revision to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR):

In Supplement No. 1 to Part 748 (BIS-748P, BIS-748P-A; Item Appendix, and BIS-748P-B; End-User Appendix; Multipurpose Application Instructions), this rule amends the instructions for “Block 6: Documents submitted with application”, to provide guidance to applicants who wish to include foreign availability support material for items not controlled for national security reasons. This new instruction guidance under Block 6 explains the procedure applicants should follow for submitting this information. The purpose of submitting this foreign availability information would be to make the U.S. Government more aware of the foreign availability of items not controlled for national security reasons.

In addition, this rule makes the following technical revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the EAR):

(1) This rule revises the “Related Controls” paragraphs in the following twenty-four CCL entries: 0A018, 1A001, 1A003, 1A005, 1C004, 1C006, 1C008, 1C009, 1C011, 1C012, 1D001, 1D018, 1E002, 2A983, 2B004, 2B005, 2E101, 2E201, 3A002, 3B002, 3B992, 3D002, 4D003, and 5E002 by adding additional related controls references or making changes for greater specificity for the related controls references. BIS includes related controls references in CCL entries to assist exporters in classifying items on the CCL and in some cases provides cross-references for items that are listed on the CCL, but are under the export control jurisdiction of other U.S. Government agencies. Several of the public comments received by BIS, as a part of the CCL review process, requested that BIS add these types of additional related controls references to better assist the public in classifying their items using the CCL.

(2) This rule is also amending the “Unit” paragraph in the following fourteen CCL entries: 1B003, 2B001, 2B003, 2B004, 4A001, 4A003, 4A004, 5B001, 6A002, 6A004, 6A005, 8A001, 9A004, and 9B009. Several of the comments received by BIS, as a part of the CCL review process, requested that changes be made to the “Unit” paragraphs of certain CCL entries, so that the unit of measurement in the “Unit” paragraphs would conform to standard quantities for the items controlled in those respective CCL entries. BIS agreed that these technical corrections should be made to the CCL in order to ensure that the “Unit” paragraphs conformed with the items controlled in those CCL entries.

(3) In three CCL entries, 6D003, 8D001 and 8E001, this rule removes outdated references in the “License Exceptions” section of each of these CCL entries that had incorrectly referred to License Exception TSR non-availability for items under those CCL entries controlled for Missile Technology (MT) reasons. None of these three CCL entries is controlled for MT reasons, so the reference to the restriction on the use of License Exception TSR in these CCL entries is outdated and confusing. This rule corrects that by removing the outdated reference to the MT restriction in each of these CCL entries.

Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as extended by the Notice of August 15, 2007, 72 FR 46137 (August 16, 2007), has continued the Export Administration Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.

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 contains 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 58 minutes for a manual or electronic submission.

3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined under E.O. 13132.

4. The Department finds that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act requiring prior notice and the opportunity for public comment because they are unnecessary. The changes made by this rule are not substantive changes, but rather are updates to cross-references, conformance of units of measure to item descriptions, and removal of outdated references. This rule does not alter any right, obligation or prohibition that applies to any person under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Because these revisions are not substantive changes, it is unnecessary to provide notice and opportunity for public comment. In addition, the 30-day delay in effectiveness required by 5 U.S.C. 553(d) is not applicable because this rule is not a substantive 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.
