SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 11, 2014, the Department amended the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to, among other things, update the text of the licensing exemption created pursuant to the Treaty Between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the United Kingdom Concerning Defense Trade Cooperation, at ITAR § 126.17, so that it is a clearer representation of treaty requirements and is also consistent with ITAR § 126.16 (the Australia defense trade treaty exemption) (79 FR 8082). As a result of an error in amendatory instruction, ITAR § 126.17(o)(2)(i) through (iv) were removed. This amendment restores those paragraphs. The Department's regulatory analyses with respect to this rule were published at 79 FR 8082, and are hereby incorporated by reference.
