Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 36 / Friday, February 24, 2017 / Rules and Regulations Background which were in effect prior to their addition to the Entity List on March 8, 2016. On June 28, 2016, BIS published a final rule, Temporary General License: Extension of Validity (81 FR 41799), which extended the validity of the temporary general license until August 30, 2016. On August 19, 2016, BIS published a final rule, Temporary General License: Extension of Validity (81 FR 55372), which extended, for a second time, the validity of the Temporary General License until November 28, 2016. On November 18, 2016, BIS published a final rule, Temporary General License: Extension of Validity (81 FR 81663), which extended, for a third time, the validity of the Temporary General License until February 27, 2017. Details regarding the scope of the listing are at 81 FR 12004 (Mar. 8, 2016), (‘‘Additions to the Entity List’’). Details regarding the Temporary General License can be found in the March 24 final rule and in Supplement No. 7 to Part 744—Temporary General License. BIS issued the March 24 final rule, and the June 28, August 19, and November 18 extension of validity final rules, in connection with a request to remove or modify the listings. The March 24 final rule, and the June 28, August 19, and November 18 final rules, specified that the temporary general license was renewable if the U.S. Government determined, in its sole discretion, that ZTE Corporation and ZTE Kangxun were performing their undertakings to the U.S. Government in a timely manner and otherwise cooperating with the U.S. Government in resolving the matter which led to the two entities’ listing. At this time, the U.S. Government has decided to extend the temporary general license until March 29, 2017. In order to implement this U.S. Government decision, this final rule revises the temporary general license to remove the date of February 27, 2017, and substitute the date of March 29, 2017. This final rule makes no other changes to the EAR. On March 24, 2016, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule, Temporary General License (81 FR 15633). The March 24 final rule amended the EAR by adding Supplement No. 7 to part 744 to create a temporary general license that returned, until June 30, 2016, the licensing and other policies of the EAR regarding exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to Zhongxing Telecommunications Equipment (ZTE) Corporation and ZTE Kangxun to that Export Administration Act Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013) and as extended by the Notice of August 4, 2016, 81 FR 52587 (August 8, 2016), has continued the Export Administration Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Federal Aviation Administration Bureau of Industry and Security 14 CFR Part 71 15 CFR Part 744 [Docket No. 160106014–7155–06] [Docket No. FAA–2016–9265; Airspace Docket No. 16–ANM–11] RIN 0694–AG82 RIN 2120–AA66 Temporary General License: Extension of Validity Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: On March 24, 2016, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) 
published a final rule, Temporary General License. The March 24 final

time period, the licensing requirements and policies under the Export 
Administration Regulations (EAR) for exports, reexports, and transfers 
(in-country) as of March 7, 2016, to two entities (ZTE Corporation and 
ZTE Kangxun) that were added to the Entity List on March 8, 2016. At 
this time, the U.S. Government has decided to extend the temporary 
general license until March 29, 2017. In order to implement this 
decision, this final rule revises the temporary general license to 
remove the expiration date of February 27, 2017, and to substitute the 
date of March 29, 2017. This final rule makes no other changes to the 
EAR.

DATES: This rule is effective February 24, 2017 through March 29, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 24, 2016, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) 
published a final rule, Temporary General License (81 FR 15633). The 
March 24 final rule amended the EAR by adding Supplement No. 7 to part 
744 to create a temporary general license that returned, until June 30, 
2016, the licensing and other policies of the EAR regarding exports, 
reexports, and transfers (in-country) to Zhongxing Telecommunications 
Equipment (ZTE) Corporation and ZTE Kangxun to that which were in 
effect prior to their addition to the Entity List on March 8, 2016.
    On June 28, 2016, BIS published a final rule, Temporary General 
License: Extension of Validity (81 FR 41799), which extended the 
validity of the temporary general license until August 30, 2016. On 
August 19, 2016, BIS published a final rule, Temporary General License: 
Extension of Validity (81 FR 55372), which extended, for a second time, 
the validity of the Temporary General License until November 28, 2016. 
On November 18, 2016, BIS published a final rule, Temporary General 
License: Extension of Validity (81 FR 81663), which extended, for a 
third time, the validity of the Temporary General License until 
February 27, 2017. Details regarding the scope of the listing are at 81 
FR 12004 (Mar. 8, 2016), (``Additions to the Entity List''). Details 
regarding the Temporary General License can be found in the March 24 
final rule and in Supplement No. 7 to Part 744--Temporary General 
License.
    BIS issued the March 24 final rule, and the June 28, August 19, and 
November 18 extension of validity final rules, in connection with a 
request to remove or modify the listings. The March 24 final rule, and 
the June 28, August 19, and November 18 final rules, specified that the 
temporary general license was renewable if the U.S. Government 
determined, in its sole discretion, that ZTE Corporation and ZTE 
Kangxun were performing their undertakings to the U.S. Government in a 
timely manner and otherwise cooperating with the U.S. Government in 
resolving the matter which led to the two entities' listing.
    At this time, the U.S. Government has decided to extend the 
temporary general license until March 29, 2017. In order to implement 
this U.S. Government decision, this final rule revises the temporary 
general license to remove the date of February 27, 2017, and substitute 
the date of March 29, 2017. This final rule makes no other changes to 
the EAR.

Export Administration Act

    Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, 
the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 
2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 
8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013) and as extended by the Notice of 
August 4, 2016, 81 FR 52587 (August 8, 2016), has continued the Export 
Administration Regulations in effect under the International Emergency 
Economic

[[Page 11506]]

Powers Act. BIS continues to carry out the provisions of the Export 
Administration Act, as appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, 
pursuant to Executive Order 13222, as amended by Executive Order 13637.

Rulemaking Requirements

    1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to or be subject to a penalty for failure to comply 
with a collection of information, subject to the requirements of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), unless 
that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This regulation involves 
collections previously approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, 
Simplified Network Application Processing System, which includes, among 
other things, license applications and carries a burden estimate of 
43.8 minutes for a manual or electronic submission. Total burden hours 
associated with the PRA and OMB control number 0694-0088 are not 
expected to increase as a result of this rule. You may send comments 
regarding the collection of information associated with this rule, 
including suggestions for reducing the burden, to Jasmeet K. Seehra, 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by email to 
Jasmeet_K._Seehra@omb.eop.gov, or by fax to (202) 395-7285.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132.
    4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 
553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for 
public comment, and a delay in effective date are inapplicable because 
this regulation involves a military or foreign affairs function of the 
United States. (See 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). If this rule were delayed to 
allow for notice and comment and a delay in effective date, then the 
national security and foreign policy objectives of this rule would be 
harmed. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for 
public comment are not required to be given for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 
553, or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., are not applicable. Accordingly, 
no regulatory flexibility analysis is required and none has been 
prepared.
