ACTION: Correcting amendments. AGENCY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule in the Federal Register on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 (75 FR 54271) that revised the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by amending entries for certain items that are controlled for national security reasons in Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I (telecommunications), 6, 7, and 9; adding new entries to the Commerce Control List; revising reporting requirements; and adding and amending EAR Definitions. That final rule contained errors that affected Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 6A005, 6A008, and 9A001, as well as the definition of ‘‘energetic materials.’’ In addition, that final rule’s preamble erroneously identified ECCN 6E993 as one of the ECCNs that was revised in the rule’s text. This document corrects these errors. DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective: October 13, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions contact Sharron Cook, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce at (202) 482–2440 or by e-mail: scook@bis.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:59 Oct 12, 2010 Jkt 223001 Background On September 7, 2010, the final rule, ‘‘Wassenaar Arrangement 2009 Plenary Agreements Implementation: Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I, 6, 7, and 9 of the Commerce Control List, Definitions, Reports’’ was published in the Federal Register (75 FR 54271). The preamble of the September 7th rule listed ECCN 6E993 as one of the ECCNs that was revised, but it was not, in fact, revised by the rule. Through publication of this rule, BIS is clarifying that ECCN 6E993 was not revised by the September 7th rule. The September 7th rule also added an incomplete definition for ‘‘energetic materials’’ in section 772.1. This rule corrects that error by adding the missing text to the definition. In the Commerce Control List, the rule did not remove a note after 6A008.f that had been moved to the items paragraph of ECCN 6A008. This rule removes the note after 6A008.f. Also, the rule listed an incorrect citation of ‘‘6.A.5.d.1.d’’ instead of ‘‘6A005.d.1.d’’ in 6A005.d.1.e; this rule corrects this citation. The rule also included two incomplete citations in the introductory text of ECCN 9A001.a; this rule replaces the citations ‘‘.a or .h’’ with ‘‘9E003.a or 9E003.h’’. Rulemaking Requirements 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 Jasmeet Seehra, OMB Desk Officer, by e-mail at Jasmeet_K._Seehra@omb.eop.gov or by fax to (202) 395–7285; and to the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Room 6622, Washington, DC 20230. 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 (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)). The changes contained in this rule are nonsubstantive technical corrections of a previously published rule that has already been exempted from notice and comment and delay in effective date provisions because the content of the September 7, 2010 rule involves a military and foreign affairs function of the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). The corrections contained in this final rule are essential to ensuring the accurate and complete implementation of the September 7th rule. 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, 14th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Room 2705, Washington, DC 20230.

In the QDD process, we use a computer-based predictive model to analyze specific elements of data in electronic claim files. The predictive model identifies claims in which there is a high potential that the claimant is disabled and in which we can quickly and easily obtain evidence supporting the claimant’s allegations.4 In the compassionate allowance initiative, we use a list of conditions to quickly identify diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify under the Listing of Impairments (‘‘listings’’) in our regulations 5 at step 3 of the sequential evaluation process for initial claims 6 based on minimal, but sufficient, objective medical information.7 1 20 CFR 404.900 and 416.1400.

In some States, we are testing a modification to the disability determination procedures that allows State agency disability examiners called ‘‘single decisionmakers’’ (SDM) to make both favorable and unfavorable determinations alone in some cases; that is, without working in a team with a medical or psychological consultant. 20 CFR 404.906(b)(2) and 416.1406(b)(2). We are continuing that testing. However, the changes in these final rules apply in all States, including SDM States. They allow SDMs and other disability examiners to make fully favorable determinations alone in QDD and compassionate allowance claims. 4 20 CFR 404.1619 and 416.1019. Our data demonstrate that the model is working as we intend. See, for example, ‘‘Good Practices in Social Security: The Quick Disability Determination (QDD) and Compassionate Allowances (CAL) Initiatives: A case of the Social Security Administration,’’ International Social Security Association (ISSA), 2009, available at: http://www.issa.int/aiss/ Observatory/Good-Practices/The-Quick-DisabilityDetermination-QDD-and-CompassionateAllowances-CAL-Initiatives.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final 
rule in the Federal Register on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 (75 FR 
54271) that revised the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by 
amending entries for certain items that are controlled for national 
security reasons in Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I 
(telecommunications), 6, 7, and 9; adding new entries to the Commerce 
Control List; revising reporting requirements; and adding and amending 
EAR Definitions. That final rule contained errors that affected Export 
Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 6A005, 6A008, and 9A001, as well 
as the definition of ``energetic materials.'' In addition, that final 
rule's preamble erroneously identified ECCN 6E993 as one of the ECCNs 
that was revised in the rule's text. This document corrects these 
errors.

DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective: October 13, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions contact Sharron 
Cook, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, 
U.S. Department of Commerce at (202) 482-2440 or by e-mail:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 7, 2010, the final rule, ``Wassenaar Arrangement 2009 
Plenary Agreements Implementation: Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I, 6, 
7, and 9 of the Commerce Control List, Definitions, Reports'' was 
published in the Federal Register (75 FR 54271). The preamble of the 
September 7th rule listed ECCN 6E993 as one of the ECCNs that was 
revised, but it was not, in fact, revised by the rule. Through 
publication of this rule, BIS is clarifying that ECCN 6E993 was not 
revised by the September 7th rule. The September 7th rule also added an 
incomplete definition for ``energetic materials'' in section 772.1. 
This rule corrects that error by adding the missing text to the 
definition.
    In the Commerce Control List, the rule did not remove a note after 
6A008.f that had been moved to the items paragraph of ECCN 6A008. This 
rule removes the note after 6A008.f. Also, the rule listed an incorrect 
citation of ``6.A.5.d.1.d'' instead of ``6A005.d.1.d'' in 6A005.d.1.e; 
this rule corrects this citation. The rule also included two incomplete 
citations in the introductory text of ECCN 9A001.a; this rule replaces 
the citations ``.a or .h'' with ``9E003.a or 9E003.h''.

Rulemaking Requirements

    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 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 Jasmeet Seehra, 
OMB Desk Officer, by e-mail at Jasmeet_K._Seehra@omb.eop.gov or by 
fax to (202) 395-7285; and to the Office of Administration, Bureau of 
Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania 
Avenue, NW., Room 6622, Washington, DC 20230.
    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 (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)). The changes 
contained in this rule are non-substantive technical corrections of a 
previously published rule that has already been exempted from notice 
and comment and delay in effective date provisions because the content 
of the September 7, 2010 rule involves a military and foreign affairs 
function of the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). The corrections 
contained in this final rule are essential to ensuring the accurate and 
complete implementation of the September 7th rule.
    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, 14th and Pennsylvania 
Ave., NW., Room 2705, Washington, DC 20230.
