AGENCY:

Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains, as part of its Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies certain of the items subject to Department of Commerce jurisdiction. This final rule revises the CCL to implement changes made to the Wassenaar Arrangement's List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar List) 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, or WA) at the December 2012 WA Plenary Meeting (the Plenary). The Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of effective export controls on strategic items with the objective of improving regional and international security and stability. This rule harmonizes the CCL with the changes made to the WA List at the Plenary by revising ECCNs controlled for national security reasons in each category of the CCL, except category 8, as well as amending the General Software Note, WA reporting requirements, and definitions section in the EAR. BIS is adding unilateral controls to the CCL for specific software and technology for aviation control systems, which the WA agreements removed from the WA List, i.e., EAR national security controls.

DATES:

This rule is effective: June 20, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies is a group of 41 like-minded states committed to promoting responsibility and transparency in the global arms trade, and preventing destabilizing accumulations of arms. As a Participating State, the United States has committed to controlling for export all items on the WA control lists. The lists were first established in 1996 and have been revised annually thereafter. Proposals for changes to the WA control lists that achieve consensus are approved by Participating States at annual December Plenary meetings. Participating States are charged with implementing the agreed list changes as soon as possible after approval. Implementation of WA list changes ensures U.S. companies have a level playing field with their competitors in other WA member states.

Revisions to the Commerce Control List

Out of the 37 Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) included in this rule, the following 28 ECCNs on the Commerce Control List (CCL) are revised to implement the changes to the Wassenaar List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies agreed to at the December 2012 WA Plenary meeting: ECCNs 1A004, 1C001, 2B001, 2B006, 2D001, 2D002, 3A001, 3A002, 3B001, 3C002, 4D001, 5A001, 5B001, 5E001, 5A002, 5E002, 6A001, 6A002, 6A005, 6C004, 6C005, 7A001, 7D003, 7E001, 7E004, 9A001, 9A018 and 9E003; and the following two (2) ECCNs, 2D003 and 7D004, are added to the CCL to implement the changes to the Wassenaar List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies agreed to at the December 2012 WA Plenary meeting.

Corresponding changes related to the movement of 5A001.i to 5A001.f.1 are made to ECCNs 5A980, 5D001, 5D980, 5E001and 5E980.

This rule also makes additions to 0D521 and 0E521 for “source code” for the “development” of fly-by-wire control systems and “technology” for fly-by-wire control systems, see 7D004 for explanation.

Category 1 Special Materials and Related Equipment, Chemicals, “Microorganisms,” and “Toxins”

1A004 (Protective and Detection Equipment and Components)

In the introductory paragraph .a of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section, “Gas masks” is replaced by “Full face masks” and a Technical Note is added to explain that “for the purpose of 1A004.a, full face masks are also known as gas masks.” The masks controlled in 1A004.a protect against more than just gases and the term gas masks has been replaced by full face masks in manufacture data sheets. This change in terminology does not change the scope of the control.

In the Note at the end of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section, paragraph .b is amended by replacing “Equipment” with “Occupational health or safety equipment” to clarify the scope of the exclusion Note.

1C001 (Materials Specially Designed for Use as Absorbers of Electromagnetic Waves, or Intrinsically Conductive Polymers)

Paragraph 1C001.b (Piezoelectric polymers and copolymers) of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section is amended by adding an exclusion Note for materials, specially designed or formulated for laser marking of polymers; or laser welding of polymers, because these materials are not used in military applications.

Paragraph 1C001.c (Seals, gaskets, valve seats, bladders or diaphragms) of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section is amended by adding an exclusion Note for 1C001.c materials in liquid form, because the liquid form is not used in military applications but is used in commercial applications to make a transparent conductive layer. It is also used, for example, in the liquid crystal panel of televisions, personal computers, and other such commercial commodities.

Category 2—Materials Processing

2B001 (Machine Tools)

The Header is amended to remove the phrase “and specially designed components” to harmonize with the changes to 2B001.f.

The Unit paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section is amended by removing the phrase “components in $ value” to harmonize with the changes in 2B001.f. Amendments to the Items Start Printed Page 37373paragraph of the List of Items controlled section in 2B001 are as follows.

The exclusion Note 2 to 2B001 is amended by correcting the spelling of jewelry in paragraph .d and adding paragraph .e for dental prostheses.

2B001.a (Machine tools for turning) is amended by revising the positioning accuracy in 2B001.a.1 from 4.5 µm to 3.0 µm and moving the phrase “according to ISO 230/2 (2006)” within that paragraph, and adding the phrase “or national equivalents” to harmonize with WA agreed text.

2B001.b (Machine tools for milling) is amended by revising the positioning accuracy in 2B001.b.1.a from 4.5 µm to 3.0 µm and moving the phrase “according to ISO 230/2 (2006)” within that paragraph, and adding the phrase “or national equivalents” to harmonize with WA agreed text.

2B001.b.2 (Five or more axes machine tools for milling) is amended by adding three paragraphs b.2.a, b.2.b and b.2.c with combinations of positioning accuracy and travel length parameters: equal to or less than 3.0 µm/less than 1m, equal to or less than 4.5 µm/greater than 1m and less than 2 m, and equal to or less than 4.5 + 7x(L-2) µm (L is the travel length in meters)/equal to or greater than 2m, respectively. In addition, this rule moves the phrase “according to ISO 230/2 (2006)” within b.2.b and b.2.c, and adds the phrase “or national equivalents” to harmonize with WA agreed text. A Note is added after b.2 to point people to 2B001.b.2.d for parallel mechanism machine tools.

2B001.b.2.d is added to clarify that 2B001 controls five or more axes machine tools for milling that are also `parallel mechanism machine tools.' A Technical Note accompanying this paragraph explains that a `parallel mechanism machine tool' is a machine tool having multiple rods, which are linked with a platform and actuators; each of the actuators operates the respective rod simultaneously and independently.

2B001.b.3 is amended by moving the phrase “according to ISO 230/2(2006)” in this paragraph and replacing “along any linear axis” with “along one or more linear axis” to clarify the control text. This rule also adds the phrase “or national equivalents” to harmonize with WA agreed text.

2B001.b.4.b is amended by replacing the period with a semi-colon to correct the punctuation.

2B001.f (Deep-hole-drilling machines and turning machines) is amended by removing the phrase “and specially designed components therefor,” because components for these machines are general and not specially designed.

2B006 (Dimensional Inspection or Measuring Systems, Equipment, and “Electronic Assemblies”)

2B006.b.1 (`Linear displacement' measuring instruments) is amended by adding a Note to reference 2B006.b.1.c for controls on displacement measuring “laser” interferometers.

2B006.c (Equipment for measuring surface roughness (including surface defects)) is amended by replacing “irregularities” with “roughness (including surface defects)” and removing the phrase “as a function of angle.” This change will clarify the scope of controls to integrate some of the expanded abilities of measuring equipment.

2D001 (“Software” for “Development” and “Production” for Listed Category 2 Equipment)

The Header is simplified, because a more detailed description of controlled software is now in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section.

The Items paragraph is amended by adding two paragraphs that split the controls that were previously in the Header, which separates “use” from “development” or “production” software in order to move 2B002 “use” software from 2D001 to the new 2D003. Paragraph .a controls “development” or “production” of equipment controlled by 2A001 or 2B001 to 2B009. Paragraph .b narrows the scope for “use” to equipment specified by 2A001.c, 2B001, or 2B003 to 2B009, which excludes most of 2A001 and all of 2B002 (Numerically controlled optical finishing machine tools equipped for selective material removal * * *.).

A Note is added to exclude “part programming “software” that generates “numerical control” codes for machining various parts” from 2D001 controls, because this software cannot directly operate the Computer Numeric Controller (CNC) equipment.

2D002 (“Software” for Electronic Devices, Even When Residing in an Electronic Device or System, Enabling Such Devices or Systems To Function as a “Numerical Control” Unit, Capable of Coordinating Simultaneously More Than 4 Axes for “Contouring Control”)

Note 1 is amended by replacing the word “controlled” with “specified” to harmonize with the WA list and clarify the meaning of the Note.

Note 2 is amended by replacing the word “controlled” with “specified” in two places to harmonize with the WA list and clarify the meaning of the Note. Also, a reference to 2D003 is added.

Note 3 is added to exclude “software” for the minimum necessary operation of machine tools not specified by Category 2 when such “software” is exported with the machine tools.

2D003 (“Software”, Designed or Modified for the Operation Of Equipment Specified by 2B002, That Converts Optical Design, Workpiece Measurements and Material Removal Functions Into “Numerical Control” Commands To Achieve the Desired Workpiece Form)

ECCN 2D003 is added to control the “use” software for 2B002 optical finishing machines, which is critical to the function of 2B002 machines. This ECCN is controlled for national security (NS2) and for anti-terrorism (AT1—Cuba, Iran, N. Korea, Syria and Sudan) reasons; see Supplement No. 1 to part 738 of the EAR. License Exception TSR is available to countries in Country Group B (see Supp. No. 1 to Part 740), see § 740.6 of the EAR.

Category 3—Electronics

3A001 (Electronic Components and Specially Designed Components Therefor) and 3A002 (General Purpose Electronic Equipment and Accessories Therefor)

3A001.a.7 (Field programmable logic devices) is amended by this rule. Paragraph a.7.a is revised by replacing “digital input/outputs” with “single-ended digital input/outputs,” which narrows the scope of control. The level of control is amended by revising the maximum number of single-ended digital input/outputs from “greater than 200” to “500 or greater” to reflect the advances made in recent years to Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices and to remove controls on older devices.

Paragraph a.7.b parameter “system gate count” is changed to “an `aggregate one-way peak serial transceiver data rate' or 200 Gb/s or greater” to remove the arbitrary and problematic metric of system gates as a control parameter and replace it with a more modern and meaningful metric for FPGAs with embedded transceiver circuitry.

A Technical Note is added to define `Aggregate one-way peak serial transceiver data rate,' which is the product of the peak serial one-way transceiver data rate times the number of transceivers on the FPGA.

3A001.b.2 (Microwave “Monolithic Integrated Circuits” (MMIC) power amplifiers) is amended by adding -70 dBm as an equivalent output power parameter to 0.1 nW in paragraph b.2.d, for consistency.

The frequency of 37.5 is changed to 37 GHz in paragraphs b.2.d and b.2.e. Start Printed Page 37374For many years, controls on microwave components have used 37.5 GHz as the frequency breakpoint between military and civilian applications. In fact, the proper breakpoint is 37 GHz, as per the ETSI EN 300 197 standard.

Paragraph b.2.e is amended by removing the fractional bandwidth parameter, because a fractional bandwidth as large as 10%, within a band that is only 16% wide, is illogical. To compensate, this rule increases the output power parameter from 0.25 W (24 dBm) to 1.0 W (30 dBm) to align with state-of-the-art output power in this frequency range.

Paragraph b.2.f is amended by adding a ceiling to the operation frequency of 75 GHz, which is the top of the V band to align with waveguide bands. The average output power parameter is raised from 0.1 nW to 31.62 mW (15 dBm) with a “fractional bandwidth” greater than 10%, which aligns with the 15 dBm output power control threshold for network analyzers in 3A002.e.1.

Two new parameter paragraphs are added for MMIC power amplifiers controlled under b.2.g and b.2.h to add two new frequency ranges to align with the 90 GHz top of the E band-WR-12 waveguide upper limit. Paragraph b.2.g controls MMIC power amplifiers rated for operation at frequencies exceeding 75 GHz up to and including 90 GHz with an average output power greater than 10 mW (10 dBm) with a “fractional bandwidth” greater than 5%. Paragraph b.2.h controls MMIC power amplifiers rated for operation at frequencies exceeding 90 GHz and with an average output power greater than 0.1 nW (-70 dBm).

3A001.b.4 (Microwave solid state amplifiers and microwave assemblies/modules containing microwave solid state amplifiers) is amended by adding “either” to paragraph b.4.f.3 to eliminate an ambiguity in the current text. The Technical Note below this paragraph is corrected to harmonize with the WA list. Note 3 is added to clarify that 3A001.b.4 includes transmit/receive modules and transmit modules.

3A001.b.10 (Oscillators or oscillator assemblies) and 3A002.d.4 (signal generators) are amended by replacing the word “for” with “anywhere within the range of” in b.10.a, b.10.b, 3A002.d.4.a and d.4.b to clarify that oscillators or oscillator assemblies and signal generators, respectively, are controlled if it meets the parameters at any point within the selected ranges.

3A001.b.11 (“Frequency synthesizer” “electronic assemblies”) is amended by revising the “frequency switching time” in paragraph b.11.a from 312 ps to 156 ps. The frequency switching time threshold of 3A001.b.11.a is the inverse of the lower frequency control threshold (current, 312 ps = 1/3.2 GHz). The new threshold is 156 ps = 1/6.4 GHz. This would retain control on Digital to Analog Converter (DAC)-based synthesizer assemblies having sample rate exceeding 16 GSa/s (frequency is calculated by dividing sample rate by 2.5).

Paragraphs 3A001.b.11.b and 3A002.d.3.b are amended by revising the low-frequency threshold from 3.2 GHz to 4.8 GHz to accommodate the 802.11ac (Very High Throughput—VHT) amendment. The 802.11ac standard uses wider bandwidths for higher throughputs and data rates to address several uses, including wireless displays for in-home distribution of High Definition Television (HDTV).

Paragraphs 3A001.b.11.f, b.11.g, 3A002.c.2, c.3, d.1, d.2, d.3.f, d.4.a, d.4.b, d.5, e.1, and e.2, are amended by raising the high-frequency limit from 70 GHz to 75 GHz, which corresponds to the top of the V-band (waveguide). Aligning the specified frequency to standard waveguide frequency breakpoints makes this parameter more relevant to national security concerns.

3A002.c.4 is amended by revising the Heading from “Dynamic signal analyzers” to “Signal analyzers” and cascading the control parameters to clarify the controls.

Paragraph c.4.a is amended by removing “a” and revising the “real-time bandwidth” from “40 MHz” to “85 MHz” to update the control level. The definition for “real-time bandwidth” is also updated in Part 772 of the EAR to better define the concept of gap-free analysis of the input data, and to assure that the scope of control remains specific and focused, which is also the reason for adding paragraph c.4.b that adds a gap and windowing effect aspect to the control.

The Note to 3A002.c.4 is amended by changing “dynamic signal analyzers” to “signal analyzers” for clarity.

Technical Notes are added for 3A002.c.4.b to explain probability of discovery, also known as probability of intercept or probability of capture.

3A002.c.5 is added to add a new control parameter for “frequency mask trigger,” which provides the capability to capture sporadic transient RF signals within other closely spaced RF signals. A definition for “frequency mask trigger” is added to Part 772 in relation to this new paragraph.

3A002.d.3.a (“frequency switching time” less than 312 ps) is removed as a parameter for frequency synthesized signal generators, because extension of the 802.11 standard for consumer wireless products in the frequency range 5-6 GHz has rendered the existing control threshold obsolete.

3A002.e (Network analyzers) is amended by adding “An” to the beginning of paragraph e.1 for consistency and correct grammar. This rule also removes the “or” at the end of the paragraph, because two additional paragraphs are added to cover frequency ranges up to 110 GHz. This change makes it clear that 110 GHz is the normal max frequency for 1.00 mm coaxial microwave connectors. A Technical Note is also added to define `Nonlinear vector measurement functionality,' which is a term used in paragraph e.3. Paragraph e.4 (former paragraph e.2) is amended by revising the maximum operating frequency from 70 GHz to 110 GHz.

3A002.f (Microwave test receivers) is amended by revising the maximum frequency control threshold of 3A002.f .1 from 70 GHz to 110 GHz, to align with 3A002.e, because of the similarity between 3A002.e network analyzers and 3A002.f microwave test receivers.

3B001 (Equipment for the Manufacturing of Semiconductor Devices or Materials)

3B001.a.2 (Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) reactors) is amended by simplifying the control text to clarify that MOCVD systems used to produce nitride based devices are within the scope of control.

3B001.b (Equipment designed for ion implantation) is amended by removing and reserving paragraph b.1 (beam energy (accelerating votage) exceeding 1 MeV), which controlled ion implant systems used for the manufacture of memory integrated circuits (Example: FLASH NAND). This technology is ubiquitous and equivalent tools are readily obtained globally.

Paragraph b.2 is amended by raising the beam energy parameter and specification of the implant materials, which assures only equipment used in the production of radiation hardened ICs is captured.

Paragraphs b.3 and b.4 are amended by moving the “or” from the end of b.3 to the end of b.4, because a new paragraph b.5 is added.

Paragraph b.5 is added to control equipment using channeled silicon ion beams in heated equipment.

3A001.h (Multi-layer masks with phase shift layer not specified by 3B001.g) is amended by adding two new parameters. Paragraph h.1 specifies glass birefringence of the mask (less than 7 nm/cm), which delineates phase shift masks that are used for defining geometries consistent with the Start Printed Page 37375lithography control. Paragraph h.2 specifies the light source wavelength of the lithography equipment (less than 245 nm), to control only phase shift masks that are consistent with the lithography control of 245nm wavelength source. This revision will control phase shift masks that are used for emerging Extreme Ultra-Violet (EUV) lithography. The addition of the phrase “not specified by 3B001.g” to the introductory text in 3A001.h resolves the possible “double coverage” between 3B001.g and 3B001.h.

3C002 (Resist Materials and “Substrates” Coated With Specified Resists)

License Exceptions GBS and CIV paragraphs are revised to read, “Yes for 3C002.a provided they are not also controlled by 3C002.b through .e”, to be more accurate and concise.

Paragraph 3C002.a (Resists designed for semiconductor lithography) is amended by cascading the parameter paragraphs and adding a new paragraph a.2. Paragraph a.1 now controls positive resists adjusted (optimized) for use at wavelengths equal to or greater than 15 nm, but less than 245 nm. Paragraph a.2 controls resists adjusted (optimized) for use at wavelengths greater than 1 nm, but less than 15 nm. These revisions are made to be more specific about the controls.

Paragraph 3C002.c (All resists designed for use with X-rays, with a sensitivity of 2.5 J/mm2 or better) is removed and reserved, because these resists are not used for the fabrication of semiconductor devices.

Paragraph 3C002.d (All resists optimized for surface imaging technologies) is amended by removing the reference to silylated resists, as well as the definition for silylation techniques in the Related Definition paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, because it was determined that it is not necessary to specifically call out silylated resists.

Category 4—Computers

4D001 “Software”

4D001.a is amended by deleting the term “use,” because no “use” software of concern could be identified for this entry, and by removing 4A002 from the scope of control, because it was removed in 2004.

Category 5 Part 1—“Telecommunications”

5A001 (Telecommunications Systems, Equipment, Components and Accessories)

The License Requirement section is amended by removing 5A001.i from NS2 and SL controls, because items previously controlled under paragraph .i are moved to paragraph .f.1 Paragraph .f.1 is already controlled under NS2. Paragraph f.1 is added to the SL control paragraph.

The License Requirement Notes paragraph is amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1.

License Exception LVS eligibility paragraph is amended by revising reference to paragraph .f to read f.2, f.3, f.4 in order to narrow the scope, because the interception equipment in 5A001.f.1 is too sensitive to receive License Exception LVS eligibility.

5A001.f (Mobile telecommunications jamming equipment) is amended by adding “interception or” in order to expand the scope of control to all mobile telecommunications jamming and interception equipment that is of national security concern, as well as equipment that monitors the network to detect jamming and interception that is of national security concern. 5A001.i was combined with the former 5A001.f as a clarification because interception and jamming are often interrelated functions. 5A001.f.1 (Interception equipment designed for the extraction of voice or data, transmitted over the air interface) is moved from 5A001.i and license requirements are not changed.

5A001.f.2 (interception equipment not specified in 5A001.f.1) is designed to control equipment that captures and processes the air interface (e.g., the air link between a handset and a base station, over which voice/data and metadata are transmitted) in order to extract client device or subscriber indicators (such as IMSI, TIMSI, IMEI), signalling or other metadata contained therein, but not without also processing the voice or data channels contained therein. Licenses are required for countries listed in NS2 and AT1 of the Commerce Country Chart in Supplement No. 1 to part 738 of the EAR.

5A001.f.3 (Jamming equipment) was the former 5A001.f and license requirements are not changed.

5A001.f.4 (Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring equipment designed or modified to identify the operation of items specified in 5A001.f.1, f.2, or f.3) is added to control passive counter surveillance tools. Licenses are required for countries listed in NS2 and AT1 of the Commerce Country Chart in Supplement No. 1 to part 738 of the EAR.

Regarding certain types of equipment that are not controlled by 5A001.f, the term `interception equipment' excludes equipment used to operate or test the network (e.g., devices which measure signal strength, and do not require the signal's contents to be decoded, demodulated, or recorded, are not considered `interception equipment'), and also readily available radio monitoring equipment for analog communications found in, for example, taxi-cab radios and home police scanners. The Note is amended to also generally exclude equipment designed for mobile telecommunications network operators, designed for the “development” or “production of mobile telecommunications equipment or systems, or specially designed for the interception of analog Private Mobile Radio (PMR), IEEE 802.11 WLAN.

Nota Bene (NB) 1 is amended by removing the text “For GNSS jamming equipment,” and adding the text “For items specified by 5A001.f.1 (including as previously specified by 5A001.i), see also 5A980 and U.S. Munitions List (22 CFR 121)”, because 5A001.f is expanded and there may be some related equipment in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) (22 CFR Parts 120-130) that should be considered when classifying this type of equipment.

A Nota Bene (NB) 2 is added to reference 5A001.b.5 for radio receivers in order to clarify that 5A001.f does not apply to radio receivers.

5A001.h (Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) equipment and related equipment) is amended by adding a new paragraph h.2 to control equipment using techniques designed to enable radio communications in the same frequency channels on which co-located equipment specified by 5A001.h.1 is transmitting.

The Nota Bene (NB) is amended by removing the phrase “ECCN 5A001.f and,” because that reference now appears in 5A001.h.1.

5A001.i is reserved and the items are moved to 5A001.f.1, as explained above. To harmonize with this move, seventeen (17) references to 5A001.i are changed to 5A001.f.1 in § 738.3(a)(1) (Commerce Country Chart structure—ECCNs that require a license to all destinations), six (6) references are changed in § 740.2(a)(3) (Restrictions on all license exceptions), five (5) references are changed in § 742.13 (a)(1) (License requirements for communications intercepting devices * * *), six (6) references are changed in § 746.7(a)(1) (Iran license requirements), and six (6) Start Printed Page 37376references are changed in § 752.3(a)(7) (Special Comprehensive License ineligible items).

The Nota Bene (NB) of 5A001.i is amended to reference 5A001.f.1 for items previously specified by 5A001.i.

5A980 (Devices primarily useful for the surreptitious interception of wire, oral, or electronic communications) is amended to replace the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1 in the Heading and the Related Controls paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section. The structure of the List of Items Controlled section is corrected by adding the Unit paragraph, adding the Related Controls Header to the Related Controls paragraph, and adding the Related Definitions paragraph.

5B001 (Telecommunication Test, Inspection and Production Equipment, Components and Accessories)

The License Exception STA eligibility paragraph is amended by removing “use,” because “use” was removed from control in 5B001.a.

5B001.a. is amended to delete “or use” as no “use” software of concern could be identified for this entry.

The Note to 5B001.a was amended to replace “control” with “apply to” to conform with Wassenaar.

5D001 (“Software”)

The SL control paragraph in the License Requirements section is amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

The License Requirements Notes paragraph in the License Requirements section is amended by replacing three references to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

5D980 (Other “Software”, Other Than That Controlled by 5D001* * *)

The Header is amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

The Related Control paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section is amended by replacing three references to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

5E001 (“Technology”)

The SL control paragraph in the License Requirements section is amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

The License Requirements Notes paragraph in the License Requirements section is amended by replacing two references to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

5E001.d (“Technology” * * * for the “development” or “production” of Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) power amplifiers specially designed for telecommunications) is amended by revising paragraphs 5E001.d.4, d.5, and d.6, as well as adding new paragraphs 5E001.d.7 and d.8, to mirror the revision made to 3A001.b.2 (explained above).

5E980 (“Technology”, other than that controlled by 5E001.a * * *)

The Header is amended by replacing two references to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

The Related Control paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section is amended by replacing five references to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

Category 5 Part 2—“Information Security”

The Cryptography Note (Note 3 to Category 5 Part 2 (Cat 5P2)) is changed in two ways. It is reformatted in order to add a new paragraph .b, and a new Note to the Cryptography Note is added to help industry better understand how the existing `mass market' provisions and requirements of the Cryptography Note (i.e., new paragraph a.) are applied.

Regarding the new paragraph b., this new paragraph provides that ECCN 5A002 and 5D002 do not control certain hardware components of existing items described in paragraph a. of the Note. While certain components of “mass market” products described in paragraph a. to Note 3 are themselves sold or distributed through “mass market” channels and are therefore decontrolled under paragraph a., other comparable components for “mass market” items are not separately sold to the public via retail channels. New paragraph b. removes ECCN 5A002 and 5D002 controls from hardware components that are factory-installed into a mass marketed product, and from functionally equivalent aftermarket replacements of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) components—components that are identical in form, fit and function to the OEM components, with certain restrictions as follows.

First, paragraph b. is limited to hardware components for existing items described in paragraph a. of Note 3 and to hardware components that have been designed for those existing items. Paragraph b. does not apply to a component that is designed for a brand new type of item that has never been sold before, or that has not previously had cryptographic functionality. Instead, the end-product must first be established as a `mass market' product before its components may qualify for paragraph b.

Second, paragraph b.1. excludes components whose primary function or set of functions is “information security.” Therefore, cryptographic co-processors, cryptographic libraries/modules, Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs), and components that provide an open cryptographic interface are not eligible for decontrol under paragraph b.

Third, paragraph b.2. excludes components that could introduce new cryptographic functionality or enhance existing cryptographic functionality into an array of products, if such functionality does not already exist in the `mass market.' Components that provide enhanced or additional cryptographic functionality to an existing `mass market' product are not decontrolled under paragraph b. This exclusion applies to both `standard add-on accessories'—additions to `mass market' products that impart new features—and to `tailored add-on accessories'—additions to `mass market' products that transform the product into a non-consumer type item (e.g., tailored for network operators, security operators, police/military/intelligence, etc.)

Paragraph b.3 excludes components that provide custom/substitute cryptography or made-to-order customizations (e.g., tailored form/fit/function) but no algorithm changes. The requirements set forth in Section 742.15(b) for mass market components also apply to the hardware components eligible for decontrol under new paragraph b. to Note 3.

Paragraph b.4. states that details of the component and end-item must be available to BIS when necessary. BIS does not intend to change the scope of any of the reporting requirements under License Exception ENC. In particular, BIS does not intend to require exporters to collect any more information on the products that a component is going into than is currently required under the EAR.

In adding this new paragraph b. to the Cryptography Note (Cat 5P2 Note 3) in the existing provisions of Cat 5P2, Note 3 become new paragraph a.

In terms of how these existing `mass market' provisions are applied, paragraph 1 of the new Note to the Cryptography Note provides guidance on what it means for an item to be considered `mass market' and `generally available to the public'. This Note paragraph 1 makes it clear that in order Start Printed Page 37377to meet the `mass market' provisions of Cat 5P2 Note 3 paragraph a., the item must be of potential interest to a wide range of individuals and businesses, and potential customers do not need to specifically consult with a vendor or supplier to learn how much the item costs or what its main functional specifications are.

Paragraph 2. of the Note to the Cryptography Note also makes clear that in determining whether an item meets the `mass market' qualifications of Note 3 paragraph a., relevant factors such as quantity, price, required technical skill, existing sales channels, typical customers, typical use, or any exclusionary practices of the supplier may be taken into account, in addition to other possible considerations.

The purpose of this new Note to the Cryptography Note is not to change the existing scope of control of the Cryptography Note, but to make current practices of interpretation more clear to the public.

Although the control text only mentions hardware components, the decontrol also applies to software components that are specially designed for a particular hardware component that has already been released from control.

For a component that meets new paragraph b. of the Cryptography Note 3 in Category 5 Part 2 of the Commerce Control List (Supplement No. 1 to part 774) that has previously been classified under ECCN 5A002 pursuant to § 740.17(b)(3), a new classification by BIS (i.e., a request for a CCATS) is not required to make the component eligible for mass market treatment under § 742.15(b)(3) and reclassified under ECCN 5A992. However, a reclassified component must be included in a self-classification report submitted to BIS and the ENC Encryption Request Coordinator no later than February 1 following the calendar year in which it is first exported or reexported as a mass market item (see § 742.15(c) for complete instructions on submitting encryption self-classification reports).

5A002 (“Information Security” Systems, Equipment and Components Therefor)

The Related Controls paragraph in the List of Items Controlled Section is amended by redesignating paragraphs (1) and (2) as (2) and (3), and adding a new paragraph (1) to specify that 5A002.a controls “components” providing the means or functions necessary for “information security.” All such “components” are presumptively “specially designed” and controlled within 5A002.a. Therefore, no analysis of the definition of “specially designed” is needed. BIS is making this change to clarify that no changes are made to how the U.S. Government currently interprets the scope of 5A002.a as a result of the implementation of the newly revised definition of “specially designed.”

On June 19, 2012 (77 FR 36419), BIS published the advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) entitled “Feasibility of Enumerating “Specially Designed” Components.” In that ANPRM, BIS requested public comments to identify where on the CCL it was possible to replace the term “specially designed” with other control criteria. Category 5, Part 2 was identified by one commenter as a good candidate for enumerating “components” that warrant control. This commenter supported making 5A002.a into a positive list of “components” controlled for “information security.” The commenter indicated 5A002 is already more of an enumerated control versus a catch-all control and therefore the term “specially designed” was not needed. This new Note to paragraph a. is responsive to that comment and also consistent with the larger Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative objective of making the CCL more “positive.”

The addition of Note 1 to the Related Controls paragraph of 5A002 does not change the scope of the ECCN, but rather is limited to adding an explanatory note regarding the scope of “components” controlled under 5A002.a. Currently, the U.S. Government is working on a regime proposal to the Wassenaar Arrangement that would replace the term “specially designed” in 5A002.a with “providing the means or functions necessary.” This work is being undertaken by the U.S. Government to better reflect the intent of this control on “components” under 5A002.a and to better reflect how the U.S. Government currently interprets the scope of this control on “components” under 5A002.a.

The Note g. to the Items paragraph is also amended by replacing the reference to paragraphs .b to e. of the Cryptography Note (Note 3 in Category 5—Part 2) with paragraphs a.2. to a.5. of the Cryptography Note in order to harmonize with the changes made to the Cryptography Note.

The Note to the Items paragraph is amended by adding the phrase “or not exceeding 100 meters according to the manufacturer's specifications for equipment that cannot interconnect with more than seven devices” to the end of paragraph i. to raise the range, because there are many products on the market today that exceed this limitation. This revision will only decontrol such equipment that cannot interconnect with more than seven (7) devices (e.g., Bluetooth). If a type of Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) equipment can interconnect with more than seven devices, it continues to only be released by 5A002 Note i. if its nominal operating range does not exceed 30 meters.

In addition, the definition of “personal area network,” found in Part 772 of the EAR, is updated to account for this range increase in paragraph i. of the Note.

5A002.a.1 is amended by adding the phrase “or execution of copy-protected “software” to the exclusion list in paragraph a.1, as well as Technical Note 1, to clarify that such items are still excluded from control. Prior to June 25, 2010, products with cryptographic functionality limited to copy protection (and other digital rights management (DRM) functionality) were originally decontrolled by decontrol Note c. to 5A002. When Note 4 to Category 5, Part 2 (Cat 5P2) was implemented on June 25, 2010, paragraph c. of the decontrol note to 5A002 was removed and a pointer (Nota Bene) to Cat 5P2 Note 4 was added to make clear that this decontrol was subsumed into Cat 5P2 Note 4. However, since then, exporters have been confused about how copy protection falls under Note 4. To make it clear that copy protection is not controlled in 5A002, this rule adds the phrase “or execution of copy-protected software” into the exclusion note. This does not change the scope of what is decontrolled, as Note 4 in Cat 5P2 remains unchanged and in full effect. By application of Note 4 in Cat 5P2 (especially paragraph a.3, regarding digital rights management (DRM)), copy protection and other DRM functionality is excluded from classification under Cat 5P2, even if the copy protection scheme (or other DRM) uses “cryptography.” Moreover, copy protection functionality is not specified for control in any CCL Category. Accordingly, EAR99 software with addition of cryptographic functionality limited to copy protection remains classified as EAR99.

A Note to 5A002.a.2 is added to clarify that 5A002.a.2 includes systems or equipment, designed or modified to perform cryptanalysis by means of reverse engineering.

5A002.a.7 (Non-cryptographic information and communications technology (ICT) security systems and devices) is amended by replacing the phrase “evaluated to an assurance level exceeding” with “that have been Start Printed Page 37378evaluated and certified by a national authority to exceed” in order to clarify that the intent is to control only those items which have been evaluated against the applicable criteria and have subsequently received a certification from a national security authority attesting that the items exceed class EAL-6 (evaluation assurance level) of the Common Criteria (CC) or equivalent.

5A992 (Equipment not controlled by 5A002) is amended by adding a Note to paragraph .b of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section. The Note is added to clarify that 5A992 does not control products with cryptographic functionality limited to copy protection.

5E002 (“Technology”) is amended by adding a Note to clarify that “5E002 includes “information security” technical data resulting from procedures carried out to evaluate or determine the implementation of functions, features or techniques specified in Category 5, Part 2”. The purpose of this Note is to clarify two things. First, that existing 5E002 controls on “technology” includes “information security” technical data that may be revealed or conveyed by the security evaluation of a product (e.g., for government or commercial certification purposes). Second, this Note is added to clarify that reverse engineering can be viewed as a form of product evaluation; consequently, 5E002 includes reverse engineering data and reports that detail the implementation of controlled “information security” functions, features or techniques by an item.

Category 6—Sensors and Lasers

6A001 (Acoustic Systems, Equipment and Components)

6A001.a.1.a.2 (Underwater survey equipment designed for seabed topographic mapping) is amended by replacing “all” with “any” and cascading the parameters in order to add a new control for additional survey equipment identified in 6A001.a.1.a.2.b. Note that the parameters for the previously controlled survey equipment, now in 6A001.a.1.a.2.a, remain unchanged.

6A001.a.1.a.2.b is added to control underwater survey equipment not specified by 6A001.a.1.a.2.a. A new Technical Note is added that states acoustic sensor pressure rating determines the depth rating in 6A001.a.1.a.2. Additionally, the existing Technical Note defining `sounding rate' is modified to specify 100% coverage.

6A001.a.1.a.3 (Side Scan Sonar (SSS) or Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), designed for seabed imaging) is amended by adding an `along track resolution' parameter to a revised a.1.a.3.b and moving the `across track resolution' parameter in paragraph a.1.a.3.b to new paragraph a.1.a.3.c. Editorial revisions are made to the Technical Notes as well.

6A002 (Optical Sensors or Equipment And Components Therefor) is amended by replacing the periods with semi-colons at the end of paragraphs a.3.a.2.b, a.3.b.2.b, a.3.g.3 and c.3 in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section to correct the punctuation. In addition, 6A002.a.3.d.2.b is amended by removing “(SPRITE),” because the SPRITE is no longer in production and the performance of the detector and the sensors it was integrated into has been surpassed by more modern Focal Plane Array (FPA) developments. The word “detector” is added before element. “Element” is made plural. Capital letters PR, I, T and E, are all replaced by lower case letters.

6A005 (“Lasers” (Other Than Those Described in 0B001.g.5 or .h.6), Components and Optical Equipment)

Paragraphs a.2, a.3, b.2, and b.3 in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled are amended by replacing “520” with “510.” Frequency-doubled Yb:YAG lasers using second harmonic generation (SHG) emit green light at 515 nm. These lasers are increasingly being used in commercial laser materials processing, replacing Nd:YAG lasers. Given the development of this application, it was determined appropriate to change the wavelength from “520” to “510” in 6A005.a.3 and 6A005.b.3, to control Yb:YAG SHG lasers at the same power level as Nd:YAG SHG lasers. The change to a.2 and b.2 accounts for the shift in wavelength in a.3 and b.3 so a gap in control was not created. As a result of this change the NP controls are expanded to include 6A005.a.3 and all of b.3, instead of just b.3.a. 6A005.a.3 is added to paragraph (d) of the License Requirements Note, which outlines NP controls.

6A005.a.6.a (Non-“tunable” continuous wave “(CW) lasers”) is amended by removing paragraphs a.6.a.1 and a.6.a.2 to simplify the control text. The output power control level of 150 W is replaced with 200 W to adjust for technical advancements.

6C004 (Optical Materials)

6C004.b (Electro-optic materials and non-linear optical materials) and .c (Non-linear optical materials, other than those specified by 6C004.b) are amended in order to control new materials that can be used in military applications. Advances in crystal growth have facilitated the manufacturing of additional non-linear optical materials. The new citations identify specific materials by name or using the updated parameters under 6C004.c.3 and c.4 that can be fabricated into non-linear optical components. These non-linear crystals have recently become useful due to advances in manufacturing. They can now be grown large enough and with low defects so that they can be cut and polished into optical components. The newly listed materials are of interest because they can operate at high optical powers that cause other non-linear materials to degrade.

6C005 (Synthetic crystalline “laser” host material in unfinished form) is amended by removing 6C005.b (Alexandrite) and reserving the paragraph, because Alexandrite lasers are tuneable from 700 to 800 nm and the majority of applications for alexandrite lasers are for dermatology and hair removal.

Category 7—Navigation and Avionics

7A001 (Accelerometers) is amended by replacing the “bias” “repeatability” of less (better) than 5,000 micro g with 1,250 micro g in paragraph a.2.a and replacing the “scale factor” “repeatability” of less (better) than 2,500 ppm with 1,250 ppm in paragraph a.2.b, because improvements in Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) technology have led to availability of equivalent performance accelerometers in commercial products, as well as widespread foreign availability.

7D003 (“Software”)

The License Exception STA ineligibility paragraph is amended by removing the phrase “d.1 to d.4 or d.7” because these controls have been moved to a new ECCN 7D004, and paragraph 7D003.d is removed and reserved by this rule. Specifically, these controls are moved to7D004.a to .g, with the exception of 7D003.d.5 (Airborne automatic direction finding equipment). 7D003.d.5 is removed and reserved as reflected in the new paragraph 7D004.e, because there was no reason for this relatively rudimentary item to be identified separately from other navigation entries. Because the “source code” in 7D003.d is already addressed elsewhere more specifically, this entry created a redundancy in controls and is removed. For more details about the redundancy see the preamble text for 7D004 below.

A Nota Bene (N.B.) is added to reference the new location (7D004) for the control of 7D003.d source code.Start Printed Page 37379

7D004 (“Source code” incorporating “development” “technology” specified by 7E004.a or 7E004.b) is added to the CCL to control “source code” moved from 7D003.d. Previously, two sets of technology controls addressed the flight controls topic. The first was 7E001, the GTN-based “development” technology controls relating to the 7D003 “source code” entry. The second set of technology controls are under 7E004.a and 7E004.b, which enumerate specific flight control technologies of concern. The existence of both sets of controls created an obviously undesirable redundancy. However, it was discovered that pertinent “source code” “software” and “technology” was removed from control by the WA agreement, which the U.S. will address with WA in future meetings to establish appropriate multi-lateral national security level controls. In the meantime, “source code” for the “development” of fly-by-wire control systems is added to 0D521 No. 2. The following technology is added to 0E521 No. 6: “Technology” for fly-by-wire control systems, as follows: a. “Technology” according to the General Technology Note for the “development” of “software” controlled by 0D521 No. 2; or b. “Development” “technology” for “active flight control systems” for control law compensation for sensor location or dynamic airframe loads, i.e., compensation for sensor vibration environment or for variation of sensor location from the center of gravity. (See Supplement No. 5 to part 774.) There is a pending rule that adds technology to 0E521 Nos. 2-5, therefore this rule reserves those paragraphs in the table.

As described in the final rule that established the 0Y521 series and that was published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2012 (77 FR 22191), items are added to the 0Y521 series upon a determination by the Department of Commerce, with the concurrence of the Departments of Defense and State, that the items should be controlled for export because the items provide at least a significant military or intelligence advantage to the United States or foreign policy reasons justify control. The “source code” for the “development” of fly-by-wire control systems in 0D521 No. 2 and the fly-by-wire technology in 0E521 No. 6 is controlled for regional stability (RS) Column 1 reasons. ECCN 0D521 and 0E521 items are subject to a nearly worldwide license requirement (i.e., for every country except Canada) with a case-by-case license review policy, through regional stability (RS Column 1) controls. Only License Exception GOV is available for this technology for official use by personnel and agencies of the U.S. Government.

If your fly-by-wire software or technology was controlled by 7D003 or 7E001 and is now classified as 0D521 No. 2 or 0E521 No. 6, then you do not need to replace your existing licenses or classifications (CCATS), because it is considered a “non-material” change pursuant to Section 750.7(c)(1)(viii) of the EAR. If you were going to request an extension for licenses with these ECCNs, you may still request extensions of these licenses instead of replacing them because of this ECCN change.

In order to maintain the more detailed descriptions of the specific flight control topics covered by 7E004.a and 7E004.b, WA agreed to remove the 7E001 reference to flight control “source code”. This modification is accomplished by moving 7D003.d to 7D004, and removing 7D004 from 7E001 coverage. Reference language is added to the new 7D004 that points to the technology controls in 7E004.a and 7E004.b, as well as 0D521 No. 2 and 0E521 No. 6 for fly-by-wire source code and technology.

A new exclusion Note is added to 7D004 that states that “7D004 does not apply to “source code” associated with common computer elements and utilities (e.g., input signal acquisition, output signal transmission, computer program and data loading, built-in test, task scheduling mechanisms) not providing a specific flight control system function,” to clarify that the scope of these entries is limited to flight control system function.

7E001 (“Technology” According to the GTN for the “Development” of 7A, 7B or 7D)

The Header is amended to specify the three software ECCNs 7D001, 7D002, and 7D003, in order to remove the new 7D004 from the scope of 7E001, which was created to control flight control “source code” in one place instead of in 7D003 and 7E001. The Related Controls paragraph is amended by adding a reference to 0D521 No. 2 for “source code” for the “development” of fly-by-wire control systems and 0E521 No. 6 for “technology” for the “development” of fly-by-wire control systems. See explanation for the creation of 0D521 No. 2 and 0E521 No. 6 under 7D004 in the preamble of this rule.

7E004 (Other “technology”)

The Related Controls paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section is amended to add references to 0D521 No. 2 (“source code” for the “development” of fly-by-wire control systems), and 0E521 No. 6 (for “technology” for the “development” of “software” controlled by 0D521 No. 2).

7E004.b (“Development” “technology”, as specified, for “active flight control systems” (including fly-by-wire or fly-by-light)) is amended to more specifically list photonic technology of concern by providing descriptions to positively identify the critical photonic functions in a fly-by-light system.

7E004.b.1 is replaced, because the technology for interconnecting multiple microelectronic processing elements, such as microprocessors, in order to speed up processing is now widely available. In addition, active flight control solutions today can easily run in real-time on a single processor. 7E004.b.1 now controls fly-by-light technology. Photonics-based flight control systems, or “fly-by-light”, are in development to provide a number of system-level benefits, including tolerance of elevated Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) and reduced systems volume and weight.

7E004.b.2 is removed and reserved, because control law compensation technology as described at the general level is now widely available.

7E004.b.3 is revised, because the former text for 7E004.b.3 dealt with fault detection, isolation, tolerance, and resolution (i.e., “reconfiguration”). The only technique implied by the text is “redundancy”, which was too broad and could encompass technology that is widely understood and employed. The revised 7E004.b.3 text updates the fault detection and isolation aspects to a more appropriate characterization of the emerging technology for protection- predictive diagnosis. This technology can determine the onset of a future failure for more preemptive mitigation actions.

7E004.b.4 (“active flight control system” technology) is revised, because it was outdated. The revised text links the real-time identification of component failures, and allows for mitigation during degradations prior to full failure. These linked 7E004.b.3 and 7E004.b.4 updates better represent the emerging state-of-the-art technologies with emphasis on preemption and mitigation capabilities.

Note to 7E004.b.4 and Note to 7E004.b are added and the Note to 7E004.b.3 is revised to clarify that the scope of these entries is limited to flight control system function. The Note to 7E004.b.5 is changed to conform to the WA text.

Category 9—Aerospace and Propulsion

9A001 (Aero gas turbine engines) is amended by replacing the phrase “Participating State” with “Wassenaar Start Printed Page 37380Arrangement Participating State” in the introductory text of paragraph .a and .b in Note 9A001.a of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section, because there is currently no definition for this term in the EAR. However, it is understood that it refers to members of the Wassenaar Arrangement.

9A018 (Equipment on the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List)

ECCN 9A018 is amended by revising the List of Items Controlled section. 9A018.b is amended to implement the WA agreements for 2012 to ML6 on the WA Munitions List. Paragraph 9A018.b is separated into two parts. 9A018.b.1 covers ground transport vehicles (including trailers) and parts and components therefor designed and modified for non-combat military use. 9A018.b.2 is the modified portion of the former 9A018.b, which covers other ground vehicles. Also, a Note is added to exclude vehicles for transporting money or valuables. The revision clarifies that “all-wheel drive” vehicles have transmissions that supply drive to the front and rear wheels simultaneously even if the vehicle has other wheels that provide no driving force. The second change limits the scope of the paragraph to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 4,500 kilograms. The third change replaces the term “capable of off road use” with the term “designed or modified for off road use.” The fourth change is that “components” are separated out from the vehicles and placed in 9A018.b.2 with parameters.

9E003 (Other “Technology”)

9E003.a.5 (Cooled turbine blades, vanes or “tip-shrouds”) is amended by increasing the gas path temperature from 1643K (1370 °C) to 1693 K (1420 °C), because as the material development for airfoils has reached a steady state, increases in higher “combustor exit temperature” can only come from advanced airfoil cooling. Taking note of the higher combustor exit temperature for 9E003.a.2 that was implemented in 2012, it then follows to increase the limiting temperatures for cooled turbine blades, vanes and “tip-shrouds” in 9E003.a.5.

A Technical Note is added to define `gas path temperature' as this term is used in the newly revised 9E003.a.5 parameter.

9E003.h.3 is amended by replacing the period with a semi-colon.

Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 (the Commerce Control List), Supplement No. 2 “General Technology and Software Notes”

The “General Software Note” (GSN) is amended by adding some provisions that align with what WA Participating States have already been doing. While WA implements the GSN as a decontrol note, the U.S. implements it as criteria for License Exception TSU and a cross reference to § 740.13 is included. Additionally, paragraph 2 of the GSN that refers to “in the public domain,” is replaced with a reference to Section 734.3(b)(3) for regulations that set forth provisions for “publicly available technology and software.”

Paragraph 3 of the GSN sets forth the provision to cover minimum necessary “software” for the installation, operation, maintenance (checking) or repair of authorized equipment. It was decided to add “object code” to make sure that “source code” is not released by the GSN. Also a Note was included to clarify that the minimum necessary “object code” is not software that can enhance or improve the performance of an item or provide new features or functionality. The GSN does not apply to “software” controlled by Category 5 Part 2 “Information Security,” instead a similar note addresses such “software” in Note 3 to Category 5 Part 2 “Cryptography Note.”

Supplement No. 5 to Part 774 (Items Classified Under ECCNS 0A521, 0B521, 0C521, 0D521 AND 0E521)

This rule revises section 0D521 and 0E521 of Supplement No. 5 to part 774 to add two new entries 0D521 No. 2 and 0E521 No. 6. The explanation for these additions is found under 7D004 in the preamble of this rule.

Supplement No. 1 to § 740.11 (Additional restrictions on use of license Exception GOV) is amended by removing the phrase “radio frequency (RF) transmitting equipment” and adding in its place “Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) equipment and related equipment” in two places in paragraph (a)(1)(vii)(C) and in two places in paragraph (b)(1)(vii)(C), because the scope of 5A001.h is expanded to control more equipment.

Part 742 (Control Policy—CCL Based Controls)

Section 742.15 (Encryption Items) is amended by revising paragraph (d). This rule adds paragraph (d)(2) to grandfather classification requests and encryption registrations submitted after June 15, 2010 for components that received a classification of 5X002 § 742.17(b)(3) and that meet the newly added paragraph (b) of the Cryptography Note 3 in Category 5 Part 2 of the Commerce Control List in Supplement No. 1 to part 774, if you include these components in your self-classification report.

Part 743 Special Reporting

WA has three levels of controls as reflected in its Basic List (BL), Sensitive List (SL), and Very Sensitive List (VSL). BIS makes certain items on the WA BL and SL eligible for license exceptions. Because of the U.S. obligations under its agreements to the WA, the United States must report on SL items exported outside of the WA membership countries. BIS does this by gathering data from its licensing database. To collect data on exports made under license exceptions, BIS requires WA reporting on SL items exported (excluding deemed exports) under License Exceptions GBS, CIV, TSR, LVS, APP, STA, and portions of GOV. As a result of WA making changes to its SL, this rule makes corresponding changes to the reporting requirements of section 743.1 of the EAR.

The Note to Section 743.1(c)(1)(ii) is simplified by combining the list of software and technology that require WA reporting under ECCNs 2D001, 2E001 and 2E002, as well as harmonizing these requirements with the changes made to the WA Sensitive List.

Part 770 Interpretations

Section 770.2 is amended by revising paragraph (h) “Ground Vehicles” to harmonize with changes WA made to ML 6. WA changed ML 6 to clarify the scope of ML 6 by adding three specific parameter paragraphs to distinguish military vehicles from commercial vehicles used for security.

§ 772.1 Definitions of Terms as Used in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)

The definition for “diffusion bonding” is amended by removing the word “molecular”, replacing the phrase “two separate metals” with “two separate pieces of metals”, and adding a phrase “wherein the principal mechanism is interdiffusion of atoms across the interface” to the end of the definition. It was inappropriate to use the term “molecular” in describing metallic bonds, because molecules do not exist in solid-state metals. In addition, to achieve diffusion bonding, interdiffusion of at least two separate atoms of metals across the interface must occur. Then, through the diffusion bonding, the atoms are joined into Start Printed Page 37381diffusion bonded metals (metallic bonds).

The definition for “dynamic signal analyzers” is removed from § 772.1. The existing controls on Dynamic Signal Analyzers are commonly interpreted to require both phase and amplitude at the output. By deleting the concept of “Dynamic Signal Analyzer” and replacing it with “Signal Analyzer” the requirement that both phase and amplitude be in the output is removed.

The definition for “frequency mask trigger” is added to define pulse equipment (3A002.c.5) that allows the detection and processing of unknown short duration, transient, sporadic, and burst RF signals.

The definition for “object code” is amended by replacing “(Cat 9)” with “(GSN)” because this term is not used in Cat 9 and it is now used in the General Software Note to make sure that the GSN only covers object code and not source code.

The definition for “personal area network” is amended by adding the phrase “and their nearby surrounding spaces” to harmonize with the range increase included in the 5A002 exclusion Note .i limits (not exceeding 100 meters).

The definition for “real-time bandwidth” is revised to better define the concept of gap-free analysis of the input data, and to assure that the scope of control remains focused on what “signal analyzers” was intended to control.

The definition for “space-qualified” is amended by removing the reference to Cat 8, because Cat 8 no longer has “space-qualified” equipment. The revision of the text was to clarify the definition and close a loophole.

The definition for “substrate blanks” is amended by replacing “Cat 6” with “Cat 3 and 6,” because this term is now used in 3B001.h.1 to control multi-layer masks with a phase shift layer.

Export Administration Act

Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, has been in lapse. However, the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013), and as extended by the Notice of August 15, 2012, 77 FR 49699 (August 16, 2012) has continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. §§ 1701 et seq.). BIS continues to carry out the provisions of the Export Administration Act, as appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, pursuant to Executive Order 13222 as amended by Executive Order 13637.

Saving Clause

Shipments of items removed from license exception eligibility or eligibility for export without a license as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting carrier, or en route aboard a carrier to a port of export, on June 20, 2013, pursuant to actual orders for export to a foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous license exception eligibility or without a license so long as they have been exported from the United States before August 19, 2013. Any such items not actually exported before midnight, on August 19, 2013, require a license in accordance with this regulation.

Rulemaking Requirements

1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has been designated to be a “significant regulatory action” although not economically significant, under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the rule has been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.

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 of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This rule involves two collections of information subject to the PRA. One of the collections has been approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, “Multi-Purpose Application,” and carries a burden hour estimate of 58 minutes for a manual or electronic submission. The other of the collections has been approved by OMB under control number 0694-0106, “Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements under the Wassenaar Arrangement,” and carries a burden hour estimate of 21 minutes for a manual or electronic submission. Send comments regarding these burden estimates 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 Jasmeet Seehra, OMB Desk Officer, by email at Jasmeet_K._Seehra@omb.eop.gov or by fax to (202) 395-7285; and to the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room 6622, Washington, DC 20230.

3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined 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 30-day 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)). Immediate implementation of these amendments fulfills the United States' international obligation to the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies. The Wassenaar Arrangement contributes to international security and regional stability by promoting greater responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual use goods and technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations of such items. The Wassenaar Arrangement consists of 41 member countries that act on a consensus basis and the changes set forth in this rule implement agreements reached at the December 2012 plenary session of the WA. Because the United States is a significant exporter of the items in this rule, implementation of this provision is necessary for the WA to achieve its purpose. Any delay in implementation will create a disruption in the movement of affected items globally because of disharmony between export control measures implemented by WA members, resulting in tension between member countries. Export controls work best when all countries implement the same export controls in a timely manner. If this rulemaking were delayed to allow for notice and comment and a 30-day delay in effectiveness, it would prevent the United States from fulfilling its commitment to the WA in a timely manner and would injure the credibility of the United States in this and other multilateral regimes.

Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be Start Printed Page 37382given 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 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, 14th and Pennsylvania Ave. NW., Room 2099, Washington, DC 20230.

* * * * *

Diffusion bonding. (Cat 1, 2, and 9)—A solid state joining of at least two separate pieces of metals into a single piece with a joint strength equivalent to that of the weakest material, wherein the principal mechanism is interdiffusion of atoms across the interface.

* * * * *

Frequency mask trigger. (Cat 3)—For “signal analyzers” a mechanism where the trigger function is able to select a frequency range to be triggered on as a subset of the acquisition bandwidth while ignoring other signals that may also be present within the same acquisition bandwidth. A “frequency mask trigger” may contain more than one independent set of limits.

* * * * *

Personal area network. (Cat 5 Part 2)—A data communication system having all of the following characteristics:

(a) Allows an arbitrary number of independent or interconnected `data devices' to communicate directly with each other; and

(b) Is confined to the communication between devices within the immediate vicinity of an individual person or device controller (e.g., single room, office, or automobile, and their nearby surrounding spaces).

Technical Note:

‘Data device' means equipment capable of transmitting or receiving sequences of digital information.

* * * * *

Real time bandwidth. (Cat 3)—For “signal analyzers”, the widest frequency range for which the analyzer can continuously transform time domain data entirely into frequency-domain results, using Fourier or other discrete time transform that processes every incoming time point without gaps or windowing effects that causes a reduction of measured amplitude of more than 3 dB below the actual signal amplitude, while outputting or displaying the transformed data.

* * * * *

Space-qualified. (Cat 3 and 6)—Designed, manufactured, or qualified through successful testing, for operation at altitudes greater than 100 km above the surface of the Earth.

Note:

A determination that a specific item is “space qualified” by virtue of testing does not mean that other items in the same production run or model series are “space qualified” if not individually tested.
