Background A rule published on April 24, 2006, added to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) provisions that implemented the new formula for calculating computer performance in Weighted TeraFLOPS (WT). That rule included the removal of missile technology (MT) controls on certain commodities in Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 4A003. Since publication, however, it was observed that some references to MT controls were inadvertently left in Note 1 of the License Requirement section and in the License Exception LVS eligibility section. This rule removes references to MT controls from 4A003. In addition, because of the removal of MT controls from ECCNs 4A003 and 4D001 in the April 24, 2006 rule, the sentence in section 740.7 of the EAR (License Exception APP) that states ‘‘Technology for computers controlled for missile technology (MT) reasons are not eligible for License Exception APP’’ is no longer necessary and is therefore removed by this rule. This rule corrects and simplifies the headings of ECCNs 4E001 and 4D001 by removing specific ECCN references and pointing to the List of Items Controlled section to determine the technology and software controls for these ECCNs. In addition, this rule revises the National Security control text by removing specific references to ECCNs and simplifying it to read ‘‘NS applies to entire entry.’’ This rule also corrects and simplifies the License Exception TSR eligibility text in the License Exception section of ECCN 4D001 to read ‘‘Yes, for ‘software’ described in 4D001.b with an ‘Adjusted Peak Performance’ (‘APP’) equal to or less than 0.1 WT.’’ A similar revision is made to correct and simplify E:\FR\FM\22MRR1.SGM 22MRR1 13441 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 55 / Thursday, March 22, 2007 / Rules and Regulations rmajette on PROD1PC67 with RULES the License Exception TSR eligibility text in ECCN 4E001. This rule also removes a duplicate paragraph in paragraph (c) of Supplement No. 2 to part 748, which was unintentionally left in this paragraph. 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 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 the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Room 6883, Washington, DC 20230. 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 12:29 Mar 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 Sharron Cook, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20044, or to scook@bis.doc.gov.

Corrections to Rule that Implemented the New Formula for 
Calculating Computer Performance: Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) in 
Weighted TeraFLOPS

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule corrects errors that were published on April 24, 
2006, in the rule that implemented the new formula for calculating 
computer performance in Weighted TeraFLOPS (71 FR 20876). These errors 
include references to Missile Technology controls that were removed by 
the April 24, 2006 rule, as well as errors related to scope of controls 
and license exceptions described in certain Export Control 
Classification Numbers.

DATES: Effective Dates: This rule is effective: March 22, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions of a technical nature 
contact: Joseph Young, Office of National Security and Technology 
Transfer Controls at 202-482-4197 or e-mail: jyoung@bis.doc.gov. For 
questions of a non-technical nature contact: Sharron Cook, Office of 
Exporter Services at 202-482-2440 or e-mail: scook@bis.doc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Background

    A rule published on April 24, 2006, added to the Export 
Administration Regulations (EAR) provisions that implemented the new 
formula for calculating computer performance in Weighted TeraFLOPS 
(WT). That rule included the removal of missile technology (MT) 
controls on certain commodities in Export Control Classification Number 
(ECCN) 4A003. Since publication, however, it was observed that some 
references to MT controls were inadvertently left in Note 1 of the 
License Requirement section and in the License Exception LVS 
eligibility section. This rule removes references to MT controls from 
4A003.
    In addition, because of the removal of MT controls from ECCNs 4A003 
and 4D001 in the April 24, 2006 rule, the sentence in section 740.7 of 
the EAR (License Exception APP) that states ``Technology for computers 
controlled for missile technology (MT) reasons are not eligible for 
License Exception APP'' is no longer necessary and is therefore removed 
by this rule.
    This rule corrects and simplifies the headings of ECCNs 4E001 and 
4D001 by removing specific ECCN references and pointing to the List of 
Items Controlled section to determine the technology and software 
controls for these ECCNs. In addition, this rule revises the National 
Security control text by removing specific references to ECCNs and 
simplifying it to read ``NS applies to entire entry.'' This rule also 
corrects and simplifies the License Exception TSR eligibility text in 
the License Exception section of ECCN 4D001 to read ``Yes, for 
`software' described in 4D001.b with an `Adjusted Peak Performance' 
(`APP') equal to or less than 0.1 WT.'' A similar revision is made to 
correct and simplify

[[Page 13441]]

the License Exception TSR eligibility text in ECCN 4E001.
    This rule also removes a duplicate paragraph in paragraph (c) of 
Supplement No. 2 to part 748, which was unintentionally left in this 
paragraph.
    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 
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 the Office of 
Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of 
Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Room 6883, Washington, DC 
20230.
    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 Sharron Cook, Office 
of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of 
Commerce, P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20044, or to scook@bis.doc.gov.
