In addition, section 127.7(b) of the ITAR provides for the statutory debarment of any person who has been convicted of violating or conspiring to violate the AECA. Persons subject to statutory debarment are prohibited from participating directly or indirectly in the export of defense articles, including technical data, or in the furnishing of defense services for which a license or other approval is required. In June 2012, Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation pleaded guilty to violating the AECA (U.S. District Court, District of Connecticut, 12–CR–146–WWE). Based on this plea, Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation was ineligible in accordance with section 120.1 of the ITAR and was statutorily debarred, with certain exceptions, pursuant to section 127.7(b) of the ITAR. Notice of debarment of Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation, 1000 boul.

In accordance with section 127.7 of the ITAR, the statutory debarment may be rescinded after consultation with other appropriate U.S. agencies, after a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding the conviction, and a finding that appropriate steps have been taken to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. The Department of State has consulted with other appropriate U.S. agencies and has determined that Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation has taken appropriate steps to address the causes of the violations and to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. Therefore, in accordance with section 38(g)(4) of the AECA and sections 127.7(b) and 127.11(b) of the ITAR, Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation is eligible to be involved in ITARregulated activities and the statutory debarment is rescinded, effective July 12, 2017. Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation may participate directly or indirectly in any activities that are subject to the ITAR. Tina S. Kaidanow, Acting Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs. [FR Doc. 2017–15969 Filed 8–1–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4710–25–P E:\FR\FM\02AUN1.SGM 02AUN1
