ACTION: Notice of inquiry with request for comments. AGENCY: On October 12, 2016, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule entitled ‘‘Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Fire SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4287 Control, Laser, Imaging, and Guidance Equipment the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML).’’ This notice of inquiry is published to request comments from the public on the impact of further increasing certain controls implemented by that final rule. DATES: Comments must be received by BIS no later than March 14, 2017. ADDRESSES: Comments on this rule may be submitted to the Federal rulemaking portal (www.regulations.gov).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 12, 2016, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule entitled ‘‘Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Fire Control, Laser, Imaging, and Guidance Equipment the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML)’’ (81 FR 70320), hereafter referred to as the ‘‘October 12 final rule.’’ This final rule was preceded by two proposed rules published on May 5, 2015 (80 FR 25798) (‘‘May 5, 2015 proposed rule’’) and February 19, 2016 (81 FR 8421) (‘‘February 19, 2016 proposed rule’’). Revisions made by the October 12 final rule became effective on December 31, 2016. During the course of public comment and interagency discussion on the rule that became effective at the end of 2016, several ideas for new types of controls under the ITAR arose. Because these controls were not proposed earlier and not subject to public comment, they were not included in the October 12 final rule. Thus, the Department of State is publishing a notice of inquiry addressing those controls. Along with those possible new controls under the ITAR, this notice of inquiry requests comments from the public on the potential impact of increasing certain EAR controls established in the October 12 final rule. Items controlled in certain Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) in Category 6 of the Commerce Control List (CCL) can be incorporated into foreign military commodities. To provide greater visibility into exports, reexports, and in-country transfers of such items, the October 12 final rule increased the scope of controls described in § 744.9 (Restrictions on E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1
