ACTION: Final Rule. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement changes to the Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to Part 744) on the basis of the 2009 annual review of the Entity List conducted by the End-User Review Committee. The changes from the annual review will be implemented in two rules. The first rule published today implements the results of the annual review for listed entities under eleven destinations on the Entity List: Canada, Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. The second rule will implement the results of the annual review for entities listed under the remaining seven destinations that were included in the 2009 annual review: China, India, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates. Entities listed under the destinations of Armenia, Ireland or Taiwan were not included in the 2009 annual review because they were added to the Entity List in 2009 or 2010. The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited. DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective May 28, 2010. Although there is no formal comment period, public comments on this regulation are welcome on a continuing basis. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by RIN 0694–AE88, by any of the following methods: E-mail: publiccomments@bis.doc.gov Include ‘‘RIN 0694–AE88’’ in the subject line of the message. Fax: (202) 482–3355. Please alert the Regulatory Policy Division, by calling (202) 482–2440, if you are faxing comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited. Entities are placed on the Entity List on the basis of certain sections of part 744 (Control Policy: End-User and End-Use Based) of the EAR. The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions to make additions to, removals from and other changes to the Entity List. The ERC makes all decisions to add an entry to the Entity List by majority vote and all decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote. 2009 Annual Review of the Entity List This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement changes to the Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to part 744) on the basis of the 2009 annual review of the Entity List conducted by the ERC, in accordance with the procedures outlined in Supplement No. 5 to part PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 744 (Procedures for End-User Review Committee Entity List Decisions). As of January 1, 2009, entities on the Entity List were listed under one or more of eighteen different destinations. The changes from the 2009 annual review of the Entity List that were approved by the ERC will be implemented in two rules. The first rule published today implements the results of the annual review for listed entities under eleven destinations on the Entity List: Canada, Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. The second rule will implement the results of the annual review for entities listed under the remaining seven destinations: China, India, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates. Entities listed under the destinations of Armenia, Ireland or Taiwan were not included in the 2009 annual review because they were added to the Entity List in 2009 or 2010. ERC Entity List Decisions This rule removes one entity from the Entity List under Hong Kong. This rule also makes two modifications to the Entity List: by making a correction to the address of one entity listed under Egypt, and by making a clarification to the license requirement for one entity listed under Israel. On the basis of the 2009 annual review, no additional changes will be made to listed entities under the following eight destinations: Canada, Germany, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. Removal From the Entity List The entity being removed from the Entity List is located in Hong Kong: Hong Kong (1) Speedy Electronics Ltd., 1206–7, 12/F New Victory House, Hong Kong. The removal of Speedy Electronics Ltd. from the Entity List (from Hong Kong, as described above) eliminates the existing license requirement in Supplement No. 4 to part 744 for exports, reexports and transfers (incountry) to this entity. However, the removal of Speedy Electronics Ltd. from the Entity List does not relieve persons of other obligations under part 744 of the EAR or under other parts of the EAR. Neither the removal of an entity from the Entity List nor the removal of Entity List-based license requirements relieves persons of their obligations under General Prohibition 5 in § 736.2(b)(5) of the EAR which provides that, ‘‘you may not, without a license, knowingly export or reexport any item E:\FR\FM\28MYR1.SGM 28MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 103 / Friday, May 28, 2010 / Rules and Regulations subject to the EAR to an end-user or end-use that is prohibited by part 744 of the EAR.’’ Nor do such removals relieve persons of their obligation to apply for export, reexport or in-country transfer licenses required by other provisions of the EAR. BIS strongly urges the use of Supplement No. 3 to part 732 of the EAR, ‘‘BIS’s ‘Know Your Customer’ Guidance and Red Flags,’’ when persons are involved in transactions that are subject to the EAR. Modifications to the Entity List (1) This rule amends one Egyptian entry currently on the Entity List by adding an additional address for the entity listed, as follows: WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES Egypt H Logic, Behind 14 Mahmoud Sedky St., El Ekbal, Alexandria, Egypt; and 11 Abd El-Hamid Shoman St., Nasser City, Cairo. A BIS license is required for the export, reexport or transfer (in-country) of any item subject to the EAR to H Logic, including any transaction in which this listed entity will act as purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or end-user of the items. This listing of this entity also prohibits the use of license exceptions (see part 740 of the EAR) for exports, reexports and transfers (in-country) of items subject to the EAR involving this entity. (2) Finally, this rule amends one Israeli entry currently on the Entity List (i.e., Ben Gurion University) by revising the license requirement for the entity listed. This change was needed because the license requirement for this listed entity prior to publication of this rule was based on a section of the EAR that is no longer in the EAR (i.e., Section 742.12 (High Performance Computers)). This section of the EAR was removed and reserved on April 24, 2006 (71 FR 20876). To conform to the April 2006 change and to clarify the Entity List based license requirement for this listed entity, this rule is revising the license requirement to indicate the license requirement applies to computers above the Tier 3 level described in Section 740.7(d) of License APP (Computers). The entity column and the revision to the license requirement column for this listed entity is, as follows: Israel Ben Gurion University, Israel. License Requirement For computers above the Tier 3 level described in Section 740.7(d) (i.e., Tier 3 under APP). VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:16 May 27, 2010 Jkt 220001 A BIS license is required for the export, reexport or transfer (in-country) of any computers above the Tier 3 level described in Section 740.7(d) (i.e., Tier 3 under APP) subject to the EAR to Ben Gurion University, including any transaction in which this listed entity will act as purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or enduser of the items. This listing of this entity also prohibits the use of license exceptions (see part 740 of the EAR) for exports, reexports and transfers (incountry) of these types of computers subject to the EAR involving this entity. Savings Clause Shipments of items removed from eligibility for a License Exception or export or reexport without a license (NLR) as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting or reexporting carrier, or en route aboard a carrier to a port of export or reexport, on May 28, 2010 pursuant to actual orders for export or reexport to a foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous eligibility for a License Exception or export or reexport without a license (NLR) so long as they are exported or reexported before June 28, 2010. Any such items not actually exported or reexported before midnight, on June 28, 2010, require a license in accordance with this rule. 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 13, 2009, 74 FR 41325 (August 14, 2009), has continued the Export Administration Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. Rulemaking Requirements 1. This 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 numbers 0694–0088, ‘‘Multi-Purpose Application,’’ which carries a burden hour estimate of 58 minutes to prepare and submit form BIS–748. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29885 Miscellaneous and recordkeeping activities account for 12 minutes per submission. Total burden hours associated with the Paperwork Reduction Act and Office and Management and Budget control number 0694–0088 are expected to increase slightly as a result of this rule. 3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined in Executive Order 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 or foreign affairs function of the United States. (See 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 rule. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et. seq., are not applicable.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: The Coast Guard will temporarily change the enforcement period of special local regulations for recurring marine events in the Fifth Coast Guard District. These regulations apply to only one recurring marine event that conducts various river boat races and a parade. Special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic in portions of the Southern Branch, Elizabeth River, VA during the event. DATES: This rule is effective from June 11, 2010, through June 13, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [FR Doc. 2010–12956 Filed 5–27–10; 8:45 am] ACTION: * Regulatory Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because delaying the effective date would be contrary to the public interest since PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 * immediate action is needed to ensure the public’s safety during the 34th Annual Norfolk Harborfest Celebration. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the public interest since immediate action is needed to ensure the public’s safety during 34th Annual Norfolk Harborfest Celebration. Basis and Purpose Marine events are frequently held on the navigable waters within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The on water activities that typically comprise marine events include sailing regattas, power boat races, swim races and holiday boat parades. For a description of the geographical area of each Coast Guard Sector—Captain of the Port Zone, please see 33 CFR 3.25. This regulation temporarily changes the enforcement period of special local regulations for recurring marine events within the Fifth Coast Guard District. This regulation applies to one marine event in 33 CFR 100.501, Table to § 100.501. On June 11, 12, and 13, 2010, Norfolk Festevents Ltd. will sponsor the ‘‘34th Annual Norfolk Harborfest Celebration’’ on the waters of the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River near Norfolk, Virginia. The regulation at 33 CFR 100.501 is effective annually for this marine event. The event will consist of several boat races and parades on the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River in the vicinity of Town Point Reach, Norfolk, Virginia. A fleet of spectator vessels is expected to gather near the E:\FR\FM\28MYR1.SGM 28MYR1

Implementation of Changes from the 2009 Annual Review of the 
Entity List

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final Rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) 
to implement changes to the Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to Part 744) 
on the basis of the 2009 annual review of the Entity List conducted by 
the End-User Review Committee. The changes from the annual review will

the results of the annual review for listed entities under eleven 
destinations on the Entity List: Canada, Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, 
Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, and the 
United Kingdom.
    The second rule will implement the results of the annual review for 
entities listed under the remaining seven destinations that were 
included in the 2009 annual review: China, India, Iran, Pakistan, 
Russia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates. Entities listed under the 
destinations of Armenia, Ireland or Taiwan were not included in the 
2009 annual review because they were added to the Entity List in 2009 
or 2010.
    The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, 
reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the 
Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security 
and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is 
limited.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, 
reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the 
Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security 
(BIS) and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions 
is limited. Entities are placed on the Entity List on the basis of 
certain sections of part 744 (Control Policy: End-User and End-Use 
Based) of the EAR.
    The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of 
the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where 
appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions to make additions to, 
removals from and other changes to the Entity List. The ERC makes all 
decisions to add an entry to the Entity List by majority vote and all 
decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote.

2009 Annual Review of the Entity List

    This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to 
implement changes to the Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to part 744) on 
the basis of the 2009 annual review of the Entity List conducted by the 
ERC, in accordance with the procedures outlined in Supplement No. 5 to 
part 744 (Procedures for End-User Review Committee Entity List 
Decisions).
    As of January 1, 2009, entities on the Entity List were listed 
under one or more of eighteen different destinations. The changes from 
the 2009 annual review of the Entity List that were approved by the ERC 
will be implemented in two rules. The first rule published today 
implements the results of the annual review for listed entities under 
eleven destinations on the Entity List: Canada, Egypt, Germany, Hong 
Kong, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, and 
the United Kingdom. The second rule will implement the results of the 
annual review for entities listed under the remaining seven 
destinations: China, India, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Syria, and the 
United Arab Emirates. Entities listed under the destinations of 
Armenia, Ireland or Taiwan were not included in the 2009 annual review 
because they were added to the Entity List in 2009 or 2010.

 ERC Entity List Decisions

    This rule removes one entity from the Entity List under Hong Kong. 
This rule also makes two modifications to the Entity List: by making a 
correction to the address of one entity listed under Egypt, and by 
making a clarification to the license requirement for one entity listed 
under Israel. On the basis of the 2009 annual review, no additional 
changes will be made to listed entities under the following eight 
destinations: Canada, Germany, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, South Korea, 
Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

Removal From the Entity List

    The entity being removed from the Entity List is located in Hong 
Kong:

Hong Kong

    (1) Speedy Electronics Ltd., 1206-7, 12/F New Victory House, Hong 
Kong.
    The removal of Speedy Electronics Ltd. from the Entity List (from 
Hong Kong, as described above) eliminates the existing license 
requirement in Supplement No. 4 to part 744 for exports, reexports and 
transfers (in-country) to this entity. However, the removal of Speedy 
Electronics Ltd. from the Entity List does not relieve persons of other 
obligations under part 744 of the EAR or under other parts of the EAR. 
Neither the removal of an entity from the Entity List nor the removal 
of Entity List-based license requirements relieves persons of their 
obligations under General Prohibition 5 in Sec.  736.2(b)(5) of the EAR 
which provides that, ``you may not, without a license, knowingly export 
or reexport any item

[[Page 29885]]

subject to the EAR to an end-user or end-use that is prohibited by part 
744 of the EAR.'' Nor do such removals relieve persons of their 
obligation to apply for export, reexport or in-country transfer 
licenses required by other provisions of the EAR. BIS strongly urges 
the use of Supplement No. 3 to part 732 of the EAR, ``BIS's `Know Your 
Customer' Guidance and Red Flags,'' when persons are involved in 
transactions that are subject to the EAR.

Modifications to the Entity List

    (1) This rule amends one Egyptian entry currently on the Entity 
List by adding an additional address for the entity listed, as follows:

Egypt

    H Logic, Behind 14 Mahmoud Sedky St., El Ekbal, Alexandria, Egypt; 
and 11 Abd El-Hamid Shoman St., Nasser City, Cairo.
    A BIS license is required for the export, reexport or transfer (in-
country) of any item subject to the EAR to H Logic, including any 
transaction in which this listed entity will act as purchaser, 
intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or end-user of the items. 
This listing of this entity also prohibits the use of license 
exceptions (see part 740 of the EAR) for exports, reexports and 
transfers (in-country) of items subject to the EAR involving this 
entity.
    (2) Finally, this rule amends one Israeli entry currently on the 
Entity List (i.e., Ben Gurion University) by revising the license 
requirement for the entity listed. This change was needed because the 
license requirement for this listed entity prior to publication of this 
rule was based on a section of the EAR that is no longer in the EAR 
(i.e., Section 742.12 (High Performance Computers)). This section of 
the EAR was removed and reserved on April 24, 2006 (71 FR 20876). To 
conform to the April 2006 change and to clarify the Entity List based 
license requirement for this listed entity, this rule is revising the 
license requirement to indicate the license requirement applies to 
computers above the Tier 3 level described in Section 740.7(d) of 
License APP (Computers). The entity column and the revision to the 
license requirement column for this listed entity is, as follows:

Israel

    Ben Gurion University, Israel.

License Requirement

    For computers above the Tier 3 level described in Section 740.7(d) 
(i.e., Tier 3 under APP).
    A BIS license is required for the export, reexport or transfer (in-
country) of any computers above the Tier 3 level described in Section 
740.7(d) (i.e., Tier 3 under APP) subject to the EAR to Ben Gurion 
University, including any transaction in which this listed entity will 
act as purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or end-
user of the items. This listing of this entity also prohibits the use 
of license exceptions (see part 740 of the EAR) for exports, reexports 
and transfers (in-country) of these types of computers subject to the 
EAR involving this entity.

Savings Clause

    Shipments of items removed from eligibility for a License Exception 
or export or reexport without a license (NLR) as a result of this 
regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden 
aboard an exporting or reexporting carrier, or en route aboard a 
carrier to a port of export or reexport, on May 28, 2010 pursuant to 
actual orders for export or reexport to a foreign destination, may 
proceed to that destination under the previous eligibility for a 
License Exception or export or reexport without a license (NLR) so long 
as they are exported or reexported before June 28, 2010. Any such items 
not actually exported or reexported before midnight, on June 28, 2010, 
require a license in accordance with this rule.
    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 13, 
2009, 74 FR 41325 (August 14, 2009), has continued the Export 
Administration Regulations in effect under the International Emergency 
Economic Powers Act.

Rulemaking Requirements

    1. This 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 numbers 0694-
0088, ``Multi-Purpose Application,'' which carries a burden hour 
estimate of 58 minutes to prepare and submit form BIS-748. 
Miscellaneous and recordkeeping activities account for 12 minutes per 
submission. Total burden hours associated with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act and Office and Management and Budget control number 0694-0088 are 
expected to increase slightly as a result of this rule.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined in Executive Order 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 or foreign affairs function 
of the United States. (See 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 rule. Because a notice of proposed 
rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be 
given for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or by any other law, the 
analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 
et. seq., are not applicable.
