Publication, Coordination, and Reporting of International 
Agreements

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of State (``Department'') finalizes a proposed 
rule to add additional categories of international agreements to be 
exempted from the requirement to publish in the Treaties and Other 
International Acts Series (TIAS). The TIAS is the official treaty 
series of the United States and serves as evidence of the treaties, and 
international agreements other than treaties, in all courts of law and 
equity and of maritime jurisdiction, and in all the tribunals and 
public offices of the United States and of the several States, without 
any need of further proof or authentication. Certain international 
agreements may be exempted from publication in TIAS if the Department 
of State provides notice in its regulations. This rule adds three 
categories of international agreements that are not required to be 
published in TIAS.

DATES: This rule is effective on November 14, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Mattler, Treaty Affairs, 
Office of the Legal Adviser, Department of State, Washington, DC 20520, 
(202) 647-1345, or at treatyoffice@state.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to 1 U.S.C. 112a, the Secretary of 
State is required to cause to be published annually a compilation of 
all treaties and international agreements to which the United States is 
a party that were signed, proclaimed, or ``with reference to which any 
other final formality ha[d] been executed'' during the calendar year.
    The Secretary of State, however, may determine that publication of 
particular categories of agreements is not required if certain criteria 
are met, which are listed in 1 U.S.C. 112a(b). The three categories of 
international agreements that are exempted by this rule (and which are 
now included in 22 CFR 181.8) are:
    (1) Bilateral acquisition and cross servicing agreements and 
logistics support agreements governing the mutual exchange of logistics 
support, supplies and services with the military of certain countries 
or international organizations.
    (2) Bilateral agreements relating to the provision of health care 
to military personnel on a reciprocal basis.
    (3) Bilateral agreements for the reduction of intergovernmental 
debts.
    Further description of these types of international agreements is 
included in the notice of proposed rulemaking. In addition to these 
changes, the Department amends 22 CFR 181.8(a)(9) to refer to the newer 
Executive Order dealing with classified information.
    The Department of State received no comments on the proposed rule.
