ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: This final rule amends title 15 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 701, which implements Section 309 of the Defense Production Act of 1950 (‘‘Section 309’’), as amended. The Bureau of Industry and Security (‘‘BIS’’) is amending part 701 to update and provide clarification with regard to the information U.S. firms are required to submit each year to BIS to support BIS’s preparation of the annual report to Congress on offsets in defense trade. DATES: Effective date: This rule is effective January 22, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: cprice-sewell on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES I. Background The Defense Production Act Amendments of 1992 required the Secretary of Commerce to promulgate regulations for U.S. firms to furnish information on sales of defense articles or defense services to foreign countries or foreign firms when such sales are made pursuant to a contract subject to an offset agreement exceeding $5,000,000 in value. The Secretary of Commerce designated BIS as the organization responsible for promulgating such regulations. In 1994, VerDate Nov<24>2008 13:48 Dec 22, 2009 Jkt 220001 BIS published the Reporting of Offsets Agreements in Sales of Weapon Systems or Defense-Related Items to Foreign Countries or Foreign Firms regulation (15 CFR part 701) (the ‘‘Offset Reporting Regulation’’). BIS aggregates and uses the information provided by U.S. firms pursuant to the Offset Reporting Regulation to determine the impact of offset transactions on the defense preparedness, industrial competitiveness, employment, and trade of the United States. Pursuant to Section 309, BIS submits reports annually to Congress. On April 29, 2009, BIS published a proposed rule (74 FR 19466) requesting comments on proposed amendments to the Offset Reporting Regulation. This final rule implements the amendments to the Offset Reporting Regulation. II. Reasons for This Rule This rule will allow BIS to improve its assessment of the economic effects of offsets in defense trade. The amendments in this rule clarify the information BIS is seeking to receive from industry. BIS believes that these amendments will lead to less ambiguity and more consistency in industry submissions. BIS is also making these amendments to update its instructions to industry specific to the means of submission and the format of submitted data. This final rule also responds to a recommendation made by the Government Accountability Office (‘‘GAO’’) in its June 26, 2008 report entitled Defense Production Act: Agencies Lack Policies and Guidance for Use of Key Authorities (GAO–08– 854). In its report, the GAO stated that Commerce provides useful summaries of offsets issues in its annual report to Congress, but the type of data collected from prime contractors limits BIS’s ability to effectively analyze the impact of offsets on the U.S. economy. Consequently, the GAO recommended that Commerce update its Offset Reporting Regulation to require more precise information on the industry sectors in which offset activity occurs. III. Comments on the Proposed Rule The comment period for the proposed rule ended on June 29, 2009. BIS received a total of three written submissions. The written submissions comprised nine distinct comments from two defense contractors and one industry association. BIS posted all comments received by the end of the comment period for public viewing at http://www.regulations.gov and on the BIS Web site at http://efoia.bis.doc.gov. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The comments focused on the following topics: the proposed requirement to classify products and services involved in offset agreements and transactions using the North American Industry Classification System (‘‘NAICS’’) codes and the added burden created by this requirement; the proposed linking of offset transactions to offset agreements; the proposed increase in data specificity for performance measures and nonperformance penalties associated with offset agreements; and the importance of protecting the business proprietary information submitted by U.S. firms. Comments on the Classification of Offset Agreements and Transactions Products and Services BIS received three comments regarding the proposed requirement that certain information reported to BIS be classified using NAICS codes. All three commentators indicated that the NAICS reporting requirement was burdensome and time consuming. One commenter noted that BIS estimated that the requirement to classify offset agreements and transactions would add 33 percent to the total time required to prepare an annual submission pursuant to the Offset Reporting Regulation. Another commenter stated that the defense contractor industry does not track NAICS codes during sales and that many offset transactions would require more than one NAICS code. The third commenter stated that it would require at least an 18-month lead time to implement the changes to its database and to train users. BIS determined that the requirement to classify offset agreements and transactions would not result in an undue burden on the defense industry for several reasons. First, all companies conducting business with the U.S. Government, including those regularly involved in military export sales reported to Commerce, are required to classify their products and services, in accordance with the NAICS (See Central Contractor Registration Handbook, http://www.ccr.gov). The U.S. Census Bureau (‘‘Census’’) posts instructions on its Web site on how to properly classify products and services in accordance with the NAICS. The Census web site also contains a search feature that allows users to find the proper NAICS codes for their products based upon a keyword search. Moreover, Census requires the reporting of industrial activity using NAICS codes for all U.S. companies for the economic census it conducts every five years. Further, Census collects NAICS-based data monthly from the E:\FR\FM\23DER1.SGM 23DER1
