ATTN: Regulatory Change, Category XV Final Rule. SUMMARY: The Department provides the following modification and corrections to the rule, ‘‘Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Revision of U.S. Munitions List Category XV,’’ published on May 13, 2014, and effective on November 10, 2014 (79 FR 27180). The changes in this rule are meant to clarify the regulation by revising certain text and providing conforming updates to Supplement No. 1 to part 126, taking into account revisions made to the USML categories in the rule published rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:43 Nov 07, 2014 Jkt 235001 on May 13, 2014. Additionally, supplement No. 1 to part 126 is amended by adding a note regarding the use of the exemptions for transactions that require congressional notification (Note 17) due to confusion as to when the exemptions may be used in furtherance of properly notified agreements. Pursuant to ECR, the Department of Commerce has been publishing revisions to the Export Administration Regulations, including various revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL).

Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: 
Revision of U.S. Munitions List Category XV; Correction

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule, correction.

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

SUMMARY: On May 24, 2013, the Department of State published a rule (78 
FR 31444) proposing to amend the International Traffic in Arms 
Regulations (ITAR) by revising Category XV of the U.S Munitions List 
(USML) as part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) effort. 
After review of comments to the proposed rule, on May 13, 2014, the 
Department published an interim final rule that allowed a final comment 
period until June 27, 2014. The Department is now making final the 
interim final rule and correcting the interim final rule that appeared 
in the Federal Register of May 13, 2014.

DATES: This rule is effective November 10, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. C. Edward Peartree, Director, 
Office of Defense Trade Controls Policy, Department of State, telephone 
(202) 663-2792; email DDTCResponseTeam@state.gov. ATTN: Regulatory 
Change, Category XV Final Rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department provides the following 
modification and corrections to the rule, ``Amendment to the 
International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Revision of U.S. Munitions 
List Category XV,'' published on May 13, 2014, and effective on 
November 10, 2014 (79 FR 27180).
    The changes in this rule are meant to clarify the regulation by 
revising certain text and providing conforming updates to Supplement 
No. 1 to part 126, taking into account revisions made to the USML 
categories in the rule published on May 13, 2014. Additionally, 
supplement No. 1 to part 126 is amended by adding a note regarding the 
use of the exemptions for transactions that require congressional 
notification (Note 17) due to confusion as to when the exemptions may 
be used in furtherance of properly notified agreements.
    Pursuant to ECR, the Department of Commerce has been publishing 
revisions to the Export Administration Regulations, including various 
revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL). Revision of the USML and 
CCL are coordinated so there is uninterrupted regulatory coverage for 
items moving from the jurisdiction of the Department of State to that 
of the Department of Commerce. The Department of Commerce's companion 
to this notice (see ``Revisions to the Export Administration 
Regulations: Control of Spacecraft Systems and Related Items That the 
President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States 
Munitions List,'' 79 FR 27418) is also published in this edition of the 
Federal Register.
    The following modifications and corrections are made to the rule, 
FR Doc. 2014-10806, published on May 13, 2014 (79 FR 27180):
