On June 26, 2008, the President issued Proclamation 8271, ‘‘Termination of the Exercise of Authorities Under the Trading With the Enemy Act With Respect to North Korea’’ (73 FR 36785, June 27, 2008), effective at 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on June 27, 2008. In Proclamation 8271, the President found that the continuation of the exercise of authorities under the PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 35739 Trading With the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. App. 1 et seq.) (‘‘TWEA’’) with respect to North Korea, as authorized in Proclamation 2914 of December 16, 1950 (15 FR 9029, December 19, 1950), and most recently continued under Presidential Determination 2007–32 of September 13, 2007 (72 FR 53407, September 18, 2007), was no longer in the national interest of the United States. Accordingly, in section 1 of Proclamation 8271, the President terminated the exercise of TWEA authorities with respect to North Korea, which were implemented by the Foreign Assets Control Regulations, 31 CFR part 500 (the ‘‘FACR’’), and the Transaction Control Regulations, 31 CFR part 505 (the ‘‘TCR’’), and rescinded Presidential Determination 2007–32 with respect to North Korea. Section 2 of Proclamation 8271 authorized and directed the Secretary of the Treasury to take all appropriate measures within the Secretary’s authority to give effect to the proclamation. The only effective provisions in the FACR and TCR immediately prior to the issuance of Proclamation 8271 were those that related to North Korea. Since the issuance of Proclamation 8271, those regulations, to the extent promulgated under TWEA authorities, are no longer in force with respect to North Korea.

Background

    On June 26, 2008, the President issued Proclamation 8271, 
``Termination of the Exercise of Authorities Under the Trading With the 
Enemy Act With Respect to North Korea'' (73 FR 36785, June 27, 2008), 
effective at 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on June 27, 2008. In 
Proclamation 8271, the President found that the continuation of the 
exercise of authorities under the Trading With the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. 
App. 1 et seq.) (``TWEA'') with respect to North Korea, as authorized 
in Proclamation 2914 of December 16, 1950 (15 FR 9029, December 19, 
1950), and most recently continued under Presidential Determination 
2007-32 of September 13, 2007 (72 FR 53407, September 18, 2007), was no 
longer in the national interest of the United States. Accordingly, in 
section 1 of Proclamation 8271, the President terminated the exercise 
of TWEA authorities with respect to North Korea, which were implemented 
by the Foreign Assets Control Regulations, 31 CFR part 500 (the 
``FACR''), and the Transaction Control Regulations, 31 CFR part 505 
(the ``TCR''), and rescinded Presidential Determination 2007-32 with 
respect to North Korea.
    Section 2 of Proclamation 8271 authorized and directed the 
Secretary of the Treasury to take all appropriate measures within the 
Secretary's authority to give effect to the proclamation.
    The only effective provisions in the FACR and TCR immediately prior 
to the issuance of Proclamation 8271 were those that related to North 
Korea. Since the issuance of Proclamation 8271, those regulations, to 
the extent promulgated under TWEA authorities, are no longer in force 
with respect to North Korea. In a separate final rule also being 
published today, OFAC is amending the North Korea Sanctions 
Regulations, 31 CFR part 510, to

[[Page 35740]]

implement Executive Order 13570 of April 18, 2011, which prohibits the 
importation into the United States, directly or indirectly, of any 
goods, services, or technology from North Korea, unless otherwise 
authorized. As amended, the North Korea Sanctions Regulations will 
replace certain provisions of the FACR promulgated under sections 73 
and 74 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2797b and 2797c), 
which were the only remaining effective provisions of the FACR. 
Accordingly, OFAC is removing the FACR and the TCR from 31 CFR chapter 
V.

Public Participation

    Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function, the 
provisions of Executive Order 12866 and the Administrative Procedure 
Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity 
for public participation, and delay in effective date are inapplicable. 
Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this rule, the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) does not apply.
