SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authorization Validated End-User (VEU): Initial List of Approved EndUsers, Eligible Items and Destinations Consistent with U.S. Government policy to facilitate trade for civilian enduses in the PRC, BIS amended the EAR in a final rule on June 19, 2007 (72 FR 33646) by creating a new authorization for ‘‘validated end-users’’ (VEUs) located in eligible destinations to which eligible items (commodities, software and technology, except those controlled for missile technology or crime control reasons) may be exported, reexported or transferred without a license, in conformance with Section 748.15 of the EAR. As established in the June 19 rule, the PRC is the initial destination eligible for exports, reexports and transfers under Authorization VEU. Authorization VEU is a mechanism to facilitate increased high-technology exports to companies in the PRC that have a record of using such items responsibly. VEUs will be able to obtain eligible items that are on the Commerce Control List without having to wait for their suppliers to obtain export licenses from BIS. A wide range of items are eligible for Authorization VEU. In addition, Authorization VEU may be used by foreign reexporters, and does not have an expiration date. This final rule amends Supplement No. 7 to Part 748 of the EAR to identify five companies with 14 eligible facilities in the PRC as VEUs and to identify the items that may be exported, reexported, or transferred to them. The VEUs listed in Supplement No. 7 to Part 748 were reviewed and approved by the U.S. Government in accordance with the provisions of Section 748.15 and Supplement Nos. 8 and 9 to Part 748 of the EAR. Approving these five end-users as VEUs is expected to facilitate exports to civilian end-users in the PRC. After analyzing historical licensing data, BIS anticipates that approval of these five companies as VEUs should significantly reduce the value of trade that requires PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 a license for export or reexport to the PRC. Approximately $54 million of items described as ‘‘eligible items’’ in this notice were licensed for export to these five end-users in 2006. This $54 million represents about 18% of all licensed exports to the PRC in 2006. Approval of these companies as VEUs also represents a significant savings of time for suppliers and end-users. Authorization VEU will eliminate the burden on exporters and reexporters of preparing license applications and on BIS for processing such applications, as exports and reexports will be made without licenses. This savings will enable exporters and reexporters to supply the VEUs much more quickly, thus enhancing the competitiveness of the exporters, reexporters, and endusers in the PRC. To ensure appropriate facilitation of exports and reexports, on-site reviews of the VEUs may be warranted pursuant to paragraph 748.15(a)(2) and Section 7(iv) of Supplement No. 8 to Part 748 of the EAR. If such reviews are warranted, BIS will inform the PRC Ministry of Commerce. Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act has been in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp, p. 783 (2002)), as extended most recently by the Notice of August 15, 2007 (72 FR 46137, August 16, 2007), has continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. BIS continues to carry out the provisions of the Act, as appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, pursuant to Executive Order 13222. Rulemaking 1. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to nor 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 regulation involves collections previously approved by the 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; and for recordkeeping, reporting and review requirements in connection with Authorization Validated End-User, which carries an estimated burden of 30 E:\FR\FM\19OCR1.SGM 19OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 202 / Friday, October 19, 2007 / Rules and Regulations minutes per submission. This rule is expected to result in a decrease in license applications submitted to BIS. Total burden hours associated with the Paperwork Reduction Act and Office and Management and Budget control number 0694–0088 are not expected to increase significantly as a result of this rule. 3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132. 4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Authorization Validated End-User (VEU): Initial List of Approved End-
Users, Eligible Items and Destinations

    Consistent with U.S. Government policy to facilitate trade for 
civilian end-uses in the PRC, BIS amended the EAR in a final rule on 
June 19, 2007 (72 FR 33646) by creating a new authorization for 
``validated end-users'' (VEUs) located in eligible destinations to 
which eligible items (commodities, software and technology, except 
those controlled for missile technology or crime control reasons) may 
be exported, reexported or transferred without a license, in 
conformance with Section 748.15 of the EAR. As established in the June 
19 rule, the PRC is the initial destination eligible for exports, 
reexports and transfers under Authorization VEU.
    Authorization VEU is a mechanism to facilitate increased high-
technology exports to companies in the PRC that have a record of using 
such items responsibly. VEUs will be able to obtain eligible items that 
are on the Commerce Control List without having to wait for their 
suppliers to obtain export licenses from BIS. A wide range of items are 
eligible for Authorization VEU. In addition, Authorization VEU may be 
used by foreign reexporters, and does not have an expiration date.
    This final rule amends Supplement No. 7 to Part 748 of the EAR to 
identify five companies with 14 eligible facilities in the PRC as VEUs 
and to identify the items that may be exported, reexported, or 
transferred to them. The VEUs listed in Supplement No. 7 to Part 748 
were reviewed and approved by the U.S. Government in accordance with 
the provisions of Section 748.15 and Supplement Nos. 8 and 9 to Part 
748 of the EAR.
    Approving these five end-users as VEUs is expected to facilitate 
exports to civilian end-users in the PRC. After analyzing historical 
licensing data, BIS anticipates that approval of these five companies 
as VEUs should significantly reduce the value of trade that requires a 
license for export or reexport to the PRC. Approximately $54 million of 
items described as ``eligible items'' in this notice were licensed for 
export to these five end-users in 2006. This $54 million represents 
about 18% of all licensed exports to the PRC in 2006. Approval of these 
companies as VEUs also represents a significant savings of time for 
suppliers and end-users. Authorization VEU will eliminate the burden on 
exporters and reexporters of preparing license applications and on BIS 
for processing such applications, as exports and reexports will be made 
without licenses. This savings will enable exporters and reexporters to 
supply the VEUs much more quickly, thus enhancing the competitiveness 
of the exporters, reexporters, and end-users in the PRC.
    To ensure appropriate facilitation of exports and reexports, on-
site reviews of the VEUs may be warranted pursuant to paragraph 
748.15(a)(2) and Section 7(iv) of Supplement No. 8 to Part 748 of the 
EAR. If such reviews are warranted, BIS will inform the PRC Ministry of 
Commerce.
    Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act has been in 
lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 
2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp, p. 783 (2002)), as extended most recently by 
the Notice of August 15, 2007 (72 FR 46137, August 16, 2007), has 
continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act. BIS continues to carry out the provisions of the Act, as 
appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, pursuant to Executive 
Order 13222.

Rulemaking

    1. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to nor 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 regulation involves 
collections previously approved by the 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; and for 
recordkeeping, reporting and review requirements in connection with 
Authorization Validated End-User, which carries an estimated burden of 
30

[[Page 59165]]

minutes per submission. This rule is expected to result in a decrease 
in license applications submitted to BIS. Total burden hours associated 
with the Paperwork Reduction Act and Office and Management and Budget 
control number 0694-0088 are not expected to increase significantly as 
a result of this rule.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.
    4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act 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 Sheila Quarterman, Regulatory Policy Division, 
Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, P.O. Box 273, 
Washington, DC 20044.
