SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This document corrects an inadvertent omission in the final rule 
that was published by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) on 
November 27, 2006 (71 FR 68438). The November 27, 2006 final rule did 
not include a conforming amendment to Supplement No. 2 to part 745 of 
the EAR to amend the reference to ``Serbia and Montenegro''. This 
document corrects Supplement No. 2 to part 745 by removing ``Serbia and 
Montenegro'' and adding ``Montenegro'' and ``Serbia''.
    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 3, 2006, 
71 FR 44551 (August 7, 2006), 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 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 
contains a collection of information subject to the requirements of the 
PRA. This collection has previously been approved by OMB under control 
number 0694-0088 (Multi-Purpose Application), which carries a burden 
hour estimate of 58 minutes to prepare and submit form BIS-748. This 
rule is not expected to result in any change for collection purposes.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under E.O. 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 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)). Further, no other 
law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity 
for public comment be given 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 Steven Emme, 
Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department 
of Commerce, P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20044.
