SUMMARY:

On August 27, 2020, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published the advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM), Identification and Review of Controls for Certain Foundational Technologies. This document makes a correction to the August 27 ANPRM to clarify that it is permissible to submit confidential business information in response to the August 27 ANPRM, provided the submitter follows the submission requirements included in the ADDRESSES section of this document. The August 27 ANPRM specified that comments must be received on or before October 26, 2020. This document extends the ANPRM's comment period for fourteen days, so comments must now be received on or before November 9, 2020.

For comments submitted electronically containing business confidential information, the file name of the business confidential version should begin with the characters “BC.” Any page containing business confidential information must be clearly marked “BUSINESS CONFIDENTIAL” on the top of that page. The corresponding non-confidential version of those comments must be clearly marked “PUBLIC.” The file name of the non-confidential version should begin with the character “P.” The “BC” and “P” should be followed by the name of the person or entity submitting the comments or rebuttal comments. Any submissions with file names that do not begin with a “BC” or “P” will be assumed to be public and will be made publicly available through http://www.regulations.gov.

Submission of Confidential Business Information and Extension of Public Comment Period

FR Doc. 2020-18910, published in the August 27, 2020, issue of the Federal Register, beginning on page 52934, is corrected by clarifying that it is permissible to submit confidential business information in response to the August 27 ANPRM, provided the submitter follows the submission requirements included in the ADDRESSES section of this document.
