ACTION: Final rule; correction. ycherry on PROD1PC64 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by making a technical correction to the contact information for the Drug Enforcement Administration. In addition, this rule amends the EAR by making corrections inadvertently omitted in three rules previously published in the Federal Register: the August 31, 2006, final rule implementing the rescission of Libya’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism; the November 20, 2006, final rule imposing foreign policy controls on surreptitious communications intercepting devices; and the January 26, 2007, final rule imposing restrictions on exports and reexports of luxury goods to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea). DATES: This rule is effective April 24, 2007. ADDRESSES: Although this is a final rule, comments are welcome and should be sent to publiccomments@bis.doc.gov, fax (202) 482–3355, or to Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Room H2705, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steven Emme, Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Telephone: (202) 482–2440. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule makes corrections to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) as described below. Drug Enforcement Administration Contact Information Previously, the International Chemical Control Unit and the International Drug Unit of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) oversaw the import and export of listed chemicals used in the production of controlled substances. However, those units of the DEA have merged to form the Office of Diversion Control, ImportExport Unit. As such, the contact information for the DEA is updated in Supplement No. 3 to part 730. This rule removes the contact information for the International Chemical Control Unit and the International Drug Unit of the DEA and replaces them with the contact information for the ‘‘Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of Diversion Control, Import-Export Unit’’. Moreover, the telephone number, fax number, and the URL for the homepage of said office of the DEA are included by inserting ‘‘Tel. (202) 307–4916, Fax: (202) 307– 4702, Internet: http:// www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/imp_exp/ index.html’’ for ‘‘Chemicals’’ and ‘‘Tel. (202) 307–7182 or (202) 307–7181, Fax: (202) 307–7503, Internet: http:// www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/imp_exp/ index.html.’’ for ‘‘Controlled Substances’’. Rescission of Libya’s Status as a State Terrorism Sponsor The August 31, 2006, final rule (71 FR 51714) implemented the rescission of Libya’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. To reflect that change, this rule removes remaining associations between Libya and the group of terrorist supporting countries that were inadvertently not removed in the August 31, 2006, final rule. In Supplement No. 2 to Part 742, ‘‘Libya’’ is removed from the title of ‘‘AntiTerrorism Controls: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria and Sudan Contract PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Sanctity Dates and Related Policies’’. Moreover, ‘‘Libya’’ is removed from the introductory text to paragraph (27) of Supplement No. 2 to Part 742, which previously stated: ‘‘For Iran, Syria, Sudan, North Korea, or Libya a license is required for all such equipment described in ECCNs 3B001 and 3B991.’’. Surreptitious Listening Devices In regard to the November 20, 2006, final rule (71 FR 67034) imposing foreign policy controls on surreptitious communications intercepting devices, this rule corrects the heading to the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 5A980 for surreptitious listening devices. The heading of ECCN 5A980, which previously read as ‘‘Communications intercepting devices; and parts and accessories therefor.’’, is removed and replaced with ‘‘Devices primarily useful for the surreptitious interception of wire, oral, or electronic communications; and parts and accessories therefor.’’. Restriction of Luxury Goods to North Korea This rule corrects punctuation, wording, and a mislabeled citation, as well as specific ECCNs, with respect to the January 26, 2007, final rule (72 FR 3722) imposing restrictions on exports and reexports of luxury goods to North Korea. First, in § 732.3, the phrase ‘‘Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, and Rwanda’’ is amended in the first sentence of the introductory text of paragraph (i) to change the ‘‘and’’ to an ‘‘or’’. Also, the introductory text to section 746.4(a) is corrected by adding a parenthesis to the end of the sentence. Moreover, the introductory text to Supplement No. 1 to part 746 is rephrased to clarify the wording and correct the citation. Thus, it reads ‘‘The following further amplifies the illustrative list of goods set forth in § 746.4(b)(1):’’ rather than ‘‘The following further amplifies the illustrative of list luxury goods set forth in § 746.4(c):’’. Additionally, the January 26, 2007, final rule on North Korea further omitted necessary changes to exports or reexports of machetes under ECCN 0A988 and to certain microprocessors in ECCN 3A991. This rule corrects ECCN 0A988 by including North Korea in the license requirement for machetes. As such, the third sentence under ‘‘Control(s)’’, which distinguishes E:\FR\FM\24APR1.SGM 24APR1 20222 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 78 / Tuesday April 24, 2007 / Rules and Regulations ycherry on PROD1PC64 with RULES machete controls from conventional military steel helmet controls is deleted, and the second sentence is revised to read: ‘‘A license is required for conventional military steel helmets as described by 0A018.d.1 and for machetes to Iraq, North Korea, and Rwanda.’’. For ECCN 3A991, the first of two License Requirements Notes provided for a No License Required designation for certain microprocessors with a ‘‘Composite Theoretical Performance * * * below 550 MTOPS’’ that are exported or reexported to North Korea. This rule corrects that oversight by removing the first License Requirements Note. 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 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:55 Apr 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule makes corrections to the Export 
Administration Regulations (EAR) as described below.

Drug Enforcement Administration Contact Information

    Previously, the International Chemical Control Unit and the 
International Drug Unit of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) 
oversaw the import and export of listed chemicals used in the 
production of controlled substances. However, those units of the DEA 
have merged to form the Office of Diversion Control, Import-Export 
Unit. As such, the contact information for the DEA is updated in 
Supplement No. 3 to part 730. This rule removes the contact information 
for the International Chemical Control Unit and the International Drug 
Unit of the DEA and replaces them with the contact information for the 
``Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of Diversion Control, Import-
Export Unit''. Moreover, the telephone number, fax number, and the URL 
for the homepage of said office of the DEA are included by inserting 
``Tel. (202) 307-4916, Fax: (202) 307-4702, Internet: http://
www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/imp_exp/index.html'' for ``Chemicals'' and 
``Tel. (202) 307-7182 or (202) 307-7181, Fax: (202) 307-7503, Internet: 
http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/imp_exp/index.html.'' for 
``Controlled Substances''.

Rescission of Libya's Status as a State Terrorism Sponsor

    The August 31, 2006, final rule (71 FR 51714) implemented the 
rescission of Libya's designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. To 
reflect that change, this rule removes remaining associations between 
Libya and the group of terrorist supporting countries that were 
inadvertently not removed in the August 31, 2006, final rule. In 
Supplement No. 2 to Part 742, ``Libya'' is removed from the title of 
``Anti-Terrorism Controls: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria and Sudan 
Contract Sanctity Dates and Related Policies''. Moreover, ``Libya'' is 
removed from the introductory text to paragraph (27) of Supplement No. 
2 to Part 742, which previously stated: ``For Iran, Syria, Sudan, North 
Korea, or Libya a license is required for all such equipment described 
in ECCNs 3B001 and 3B991.''.

Surreptitious Listening Devices

    In regard to the November 20, 2006, final rule (71 FR 67034) 
imposing foreign policy controls on surreptitious communications 
intercepting devices, this rule corrects the heading to the Export 
Control Classification Number (ECCN) 5A980 for surreptitious listening 
devices. The heading of ECCN 5A980, which previously read as 
``Communications intercepting devices; and parts and accessories 
therefor.'', is removed and replaced with ``Devices primarily useful 
for the surreptitious interception of wire, oral, or electronic 
communications; and parts and accessories therefor.''.

Restriction of Luxury Goods to North Korea

    This rule corrects punctuation, wording, and a mislabeled citation, 
as well as specific ECCNs, with respect to the January 26, 2007, final 
rule (72 FR 3722) imposing restrictions on exports and reexports of 
luxury goods to North Korea. First, in Sec.  732.3, the phrase ``Cuba, 
Iran, Iraq, North Korea, and Rwanda'' is amended in the first sentence 
of the introductory text of paragraph (i) to change the ``and'' to an 
``or''. Also, the introductory text to section 746.4(a) is corrected by 
adding a parenthesis to the end of the sentence. Moreover, the 
introductory text to Supplement No. 1 to part 746 is rephrased to 
clarify the wording and correct the citation. Thus, it reads ``The 
following further amplifies the illustrative list of goods set forth in 
Sec.  746.4(b)(1):'' rather than ``The following further amplifies the 
illustrative of list luxury goods set forth in Sec.  746.4(c):''.
    Additionally, the January 26, 2007, final rule on North Korea 
further omitted necessary changes to exports or reexports of machetes 
under ECCN 0A988 and to certain microprocessors in ECCN 3A991. This 
rule corrects ECCN 0A988 by including North Korea in the license 
requirement for machetes. As such, the third sentence under 
``Control(s)'', which distinguishes

[[Page 20222]]

machete controls from conventional military steel helmet controls is 
deleted, and the second sentence is revised to read: ``A license is 
required for conventional military steel helmets as described by 
0A018.d.1 and for machetes to Iraq, North Korea, and Rwanda.''.
    For ECCN 3A991, the first of two License Requirements Notes 
provided for a No License Required designation for certain 
microprocessors with a ``Composite Theoretical Performance * * * below 
550 MTOPS'' that are exported or reexported to North Korea. This rule 
corrects that oversight by removing the first License Requirements 
Note.
    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 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.
