Revisions to the Commerce Control List: Imposition of Controls on Integrated Circuits, Helicopter Landing System Radars, Seismic Detection Systems, and Technology for IR Up-Conversion Devices
In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to impose foreign policy controls on read-out integrated circuits and related ``software'' and ``technology,'' radar for helicopter autonomous landing systems, seismic intrusion detection systems and related ``software'' and ``technology'', and ``technology'' ``required'' for the ``development'' or ``production'' of specified infrared up-conversion devices. The read-out integrated circuits and related ``technology'' are controlled under new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the Commerce Control List. An existing ECCN has been amended to control the related ``software'' for those items. New paragraphs have been added to certain existing ECCNs to control radar for helicopter autonomous landing systems, seismic intrusion detection systems, and the ``technology,'' as mentioned, for specified infrared up-conversion devices. Specified existing ``software'' and ``technology'' ECCNs have been amended to apply to helicopter autonomous landing systems and seismic intrusion detection systems. The items are controlled for regional stability reasons Column 1 (RS Column 1) and Column 2 (RS Column 2), and antiterrorism reasons Column 1 (AT Column 1). The Departments of Commerce, State and Defense have determined that imposition of these license requirements protects U.S. national security and foreign policy interests. Specifically, those agencies have determined that the items described in this rule have civilian applications but also warrant immediate controls under the EAR because of their potential military applications.

Modification of the Designations of the Caribbean Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Sites (San Juan Harbor, PR; Yabucoa Harbor, PR; Ponce Harbor, PR; Mayaguez Harbor, PR; Arecibo Harbor, PR)
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to modify the designations for the five Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Sites (ODMDS) around Puerto Rico (San Juan Harbor, PR ODMDS; Yabucoa Harbor, PR ODMDS; Ponce Harbor, PR ODMDS; Mayaguez Harbor, PR ODMDS; Arecibo Harbor, PR ODMDS). Currently, each of the ODMDS is restricted to only allow disposal of dredged material from the specific harbor for which it is named. The proposed modification would remove the restriction that limits eligibility for disposal at each of the disposal sites based solely on the geographic origin of the dredged material. The proposed modifications to the site designations do not actually authorize the disposal of any particular dredged material at any site. All proposals to dispose of dredged material at any of the designated sites will continue to be subject to projectspecific reviews and must still be demonstrated to satisfy the criteria for ocean dumping before any material is authorized for disposal. This action is necessary to provide long-term flexibility for management of any dredged material that may potentially be derived from maintenance, development, or emergency activities in areas outside those harbors currently provided for in the designations. The proposed modifications to the site designations are for an indefinite period of time. Each ODMDS will continue to be monitored to ensure that significant unacceptable, adverse environmental impacts do not occur as a result of dredged material disposal at the site.
