SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The NRC’s Distribution of Source Material Rule (78 FR 32310; May 29, 2013) amended the NRC’s regulations in parts 30, 40, 70, 170, and 171 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) to require that the initial distribution of source material to exempt persons or general licensees be explicitly authorized by a specific license. The Distribution of Source Material Rule also included new reporting requirements. The rule will affect manufacturers and distributors of certain products and materials containing source material and certain persons using source material under general license and under exemptions from licensing. The Distribution of Source Material Rule goes into effect on August 27, 2013. In conjunction with the Distribution of Source Material Rule, the NRC has developed interim staff guidance, which provides guidance to a licensee or applicant for implementation of the amended regulations. It is intended for use by applicants, licensees, Agreement States, and the NRC staff. On January 7, 2011, the NRC published the draft E:\FR\FM\05JNR1.SGM 05JNR1 33692 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 108 / Wednesday, June 5, 2013 / Rules and Regulations interim staff guidance in the Federal Register (76 FR 1100) for public comment.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:07 Jun 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) publishes this final rule to amend the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the understandings reached at the June 2012 plenary meeting of the Australia Group (AG) and the 2012 AG intersessional decisions. Specifically, this rule amends the Commerce Control List (CCL) entry in the EAR that controls human and zoonotic pathogens and ‘‘toxins’’ to reflect changes to the AG ‘‘List of Biological Agents for Export Control’’ that were made based on the understandings adopted at the June 2012 AG plenary meeting. These changes included the addition of three pathogens and clarifications to two other items. This rule also amends the CCL entry in the EAR that controls plant pathogens to reflect: The 2012 AG Plenary agreement to add five pathogens to the AG ‘‘List of Plant Pathogens for Export Control;’’ and the AG intersessional clarifications to six pathogens identified on this AG list. In addition, the CCL entry in the EAR that controls equipment capable of handling biological materials is amended to reflect the 2012 AG intersessional decision to add certain spray-drying equipment to the AG ‘‘Control List of Dual-Use Biological Equipment and Related Technology and Software.’’ This rule also removes the CCL entry that controls select agents not identified on any of the AG common controls lists, but identified on the CCL because they are (or were, until recently) subject to controls maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), U.S. Department of Agriculture, on their possession, use, and transfer within the United States. Rather than continuing to control these select agents in a separate CCL entry, this rule adds those select agents that remain subject to the CDC/ APHIS controls (as well as a recent addition to the list of select agents) to the AG-related CCL entries that control human and zoonotic pathogens and ‘‘toxins’’ and plant pathogens, respectively. DATES: This rule is effective June 5, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Sangine, Director, Chemical and Biological Controls Division, Office of Nonproliferation and Treaty Compliance, Bureau of Industry and Security, Telephone: (202) 482–3343. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the understandings reached at the Australia Group (AG) plenary meeting held in Paris, France, on June 12–15, 2012. This rule also implements the recommendations presented at the AG intersessional implementation meeting held in Ottawa, Canada, on February 14–16, 2012, and adopted pursuant to the AG silent approval procedure, which closed on March 23, 2012. The AG is a multilateral forum consisting of 40 participating countries that maintain export controls on a list of chemicals, biological agents, and related equipment and technology that could be used in a chemical or biological weapons program. The AG periodically reviews items on its control list to enhance the effectiveness of participating governments’ national controls and to achieve greater harmonization among these controls. June 2012 AG Plenary Changes The June 2012 AG plenary meeting adopted understandings that affected the AG ‘‘List of Biological Agents for Export Control’’ and the AG ‘‘List of Plant Pathogens for Export Control.’’ This rule amends Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 1C351 to reflect the AG plenary changes to the ‘‘List of Biological Agents for Export Control.’’ Specifically, ECCN 1C351 (Human and zoonotic pathogens and ‘‘toxins’’) is amended by adding botulinum neurotoxin producing strains of the following bacteria to 1C351.c: Clostridium argentinense (formerly known as Clostridium botulinum Type G); Clostridium baratii; and Clostridium butyricum. ECCN 1C351.c is partially renumbered to control these bacteria under 1C351.c.8., .c.9, and .c.11, respectively, while the bacteria previously controlled under these subparagraphs (Clostridium botulinum; Clostridium perfringens, epsilon toxin producing types; and Coxiella burnetii) are now controlled under 1C351.c.10, .c.12. and .c.13, respectively. In addition, bacteria previously controlled under 1C351.c.12 through .c.17 are now controlled under 1C351.c.14 through E:\FR\FM\05JNR1.SGM 05JNR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The NRC's Distribution of Source Material Rule (78 FR 32310; May 
29, 2013) amended the NRC's regulations in parts 30, 40, 70, 170, and 
171 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) to require 
that the initial distribution of source material to exempt persons or 
general licensees be explicitly authorized by a specific license. The 
Distribution of Source Material Rule also included new reporting 
requirements. The rule will affect manufacturers and distributors of 
certain products and materials containing source material and certain 
persons using source material under general license and under 
exemptions from licensing. The Distribution of Source Material Rule 
goes into effect on August 27, 2013.
    In conjunction with the Distribution of Source Material Rule, the 
NRC has developed interim staff guidance, which provides guidance to a 
licensee or applicant for implementation of the amended regulations. It 
is intended for use by applicants, licensees, Agreement States, and the 
NRC staff. On January 7, 2011, the NRC published the draft

[[Page 33692]]

interim staff guidance in the Federal Register (76 FR 1100) for public 
comment. Two comment letters were received and considered during the 
revision of the draft interim staff guidance. The guidance was also 
enhanced based on comments received on the proposed rule.
    The interim staff guidance document describes methods acceptable to 
the NRC staff for implementing the new requirements in the Distribution 
of Source Material Rule. The approaches and methods described in the 
document are provided for information only. Methods and solutions 
different from those described in the document are acceptable if they 
meet the revised requirements. The guidance is provided in the form of 
questions and answers on the primary provisions of the Distribution of 
Source Material Rule. Guidance consistent with the revised 10 CFR part 
40 will be incorporated into the next revision of relevant volumes of 
NUREG-1556, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses'' (current 
ADAMS Accession Nos. ML022830847 and ML003681951).

Congressional Review Act

    This interim staff guidance is a rule as designated in the 
Congressional Review Act of 1996 (5 U.S.C. 801-808). However, the 
Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as 
designated in the Congressional Review Act.
