Clarifications and Revisions to Military Aircraft, Gas Turbine Engines and Related Items License Requirements
Document Number: 2016-02591
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This proposed rule would modify the Commerce Control List (CCL) entries for two types of items: Military aircraft and related items, and military gas turbine engines and related items. The rule would add clarifying text to the descriptions of the types of military aircraft controlled on the CCL. The lists of items that are subject only to the anti-terrorism reason for control would be clarified and expanded. This proposed rule is based on a review of the military aircraft and gas turbine engine related entries that were added to the CCL on October 15, 2013. That review was intended to ensure that the regulatory changes made by the October 15, 2013 rule are clear, do not inadvertently control items in normal commercial use, account for technological developments, and properly implement the national security and foreign policy objectives of the export control reform effort. This proposed rule is being published simultaneously with a proposed rule by the Department of State, which is based on a review of Categories VIII and XIX of the United States Munitions List (USML). This document also furthers the retrospective regulatory review directed by the President in Executive Order 13563.

Receipt of Domestic Interested Party Petition Concerning the Tariff Classification of a Steel Tube Fitting
Document Number: 2016-02555
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-09
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has received a petition submitted on behalf of a domestic interested party requesting the reclassification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) of a steel tube fitting from Taiwan. CBP classified the steel tube fitting under subheading 7307.99.50, HTSUS, which provides for: ``Tube or pipe fittings (for example, couplings, elbows, sleeves), of iron or steel: Other: Other: Other.'' The 2015 column one, general rate of duty is 4.3 percent ad valorem. Petitioner contends that the proper classification for the steel tube fitting is under subheading 8412.90.90, HTSUS, which provides for: ``Other engines and motors, and parts thereof: Parts: Other.'' Petitioner asserts that some of its competitors are classifying all or a substantial portion of similar fittings as parts of hydraulic systems, under subheading 8412.90.90, HTSUS, which is duty free, thus placing Petitioner at a competitive disadvantage. This document invites comments with regard to the correctness of the current classification.
