ACTION: Final rule. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES AGENCY: This final rule creates a 90day temporary general license that partially restores the licensing requirements and policies under the SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:56 May 21, 2019 Jkt 247001 Export Administration Regulations (EAR) for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to sixty-nine entities added to the Entity List on May 16, 2019. DATES: This rule is effective May 20, 2019, through August 19, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Director, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, Phone: (949) 660–0144 or (408) 998–8806 or email your inquiry to: ECDOEXS@bis.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to Part 744) identifies entities and other persons reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions regarding additions to, removals from, or other modifications to the Entity List. The ERC makes all decisions to add an entry to the Entity List by majority vote and all decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote. This final rule does not amend the Entity List, but modifies the license requirement for the sixty-nine entries added to the Entity List in the May 16, 2019, final rule entitled ‘‘Addition of Entities to the Entity List,’’ as described further below, by adding a temporary general license for the specified entities. Addition of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and Sixty-Eight Related Entities to the Entity List BIS added Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) and sixty-eight of its nonU.S. affiliates to the Entity List on May 16, 2019. Details regarding the scope of the listing are in the final rule titled ‘‘Addition to the Entity List,’’ effective May 16, 2019, and scheduled to publish in the May 21, 2019, issue of the Federal Register. The sixty-eight nonU.S. affiliates are also listed in Supplement No. 7 to part 744— Temporary General License. Addition of Temporary General License This final rule amends the EAR by adding Supplement No. 7 to Part 744 to create a Temporary General License that returns in part the prior requirements through August 14, 2019. In this final rule, pursuant to Supplement No. 5 to part 744 of the Export Administration PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Regulations (EAR), BIS is modifying the effect of the sixty-nine entries on the Entity List by adding a temporary general license to temporarily authorize, as specified below, engagement in transactions, involving the export, reexport, and transfer (in-country) of items subject to the EAR to Huawei and its sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates subject to the conditions described below. a. This temporary general license is effective from the date of this Authorization, May 20, 2019, through August 19, 2019. b. This temporary general license does not relieve persons of other obligations under the EAR, including but not limited to licensing requirements to the People’s Republic of China (PRC or China) or elsewhere and/or the requirements of part 744 of the EAR. This authorization does not authorize any activities or transactions involving Country Group E countries (i.e., Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) or persons. c. With the exception of the transactions explicitly authorized by this temporary general license, exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) continue to require a license pursuant to the license requirement set forth in Supplement No. 4 to part 744 for Huawei and the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates and will be reviewed under the license review policy for those entities. This temporary general license allows, from May 20, 2019, through August 19, 2019, the following: 1. Continued Operation of Existing Networks and Equipment: BIS authorizes engagement in transactions, subject to other provisions of the EAR, necessary to maintain and support existing and currently fully operational networks and equipment, including software updates and patches, subject to legally binding contracts and agreements executed between Huawei and third parties or the sixty-eight nonU.S. Huawei affiliates and third parties on or before May 16, 2019. 2. Support to Existing Handsets: BIS authorizes engagement in transactions, subject to other provisions of the EAR, necessary to provide service and support, including software updates or patches, to existing Huawei handsets that were available to the public on or before May 16, 2019. 3. Cybersecurity Research and Vulnerability Disclosure: BIS authorizes, subject to other provisions of the EAR, the disclosure to Huawei and/or the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates of information regarding security vulnerabilities in items owned, possessed, or controlled by Huawei or any of the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates E:\FR\FM\22MYR1.SGM 22MYR1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 99 / Wednesday, May 22, 2019 / Rules and Regulations when related to the process of providing ongoing security research critical to maintaining the integrity and reliability of existing and currently fully operational networks and equipment, as well as handsets. 4. Engagement as Necessary for Development of 5G Standards by a Duly Recognized Standards Body: BIS authorizes, subject to other provisions of the EAR, engagement with Huawei and/ or the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates as necessary for the development of 5G standards as part of a duly recognized international standards body (e.g., IEEE—Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers; IETF—internet Engineering Task Force; ISO— International Organization for Standards; ITU—International Telecommunications Union; ETSIEuropean Telecommunications Standards Institute; 3GPP—3rd Generation Partnership Project; TIA— Telecommunications Industry Association; and GSMA, a.k.a., GSM Association, Global System for Mobile Communications). The licensing and other policies of the EAR regarding exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to Huawei and sixty-eight of its non-U.S. affiliates that were in effect prior to their addition to the Entity List on May 16, 2019, are available for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) for transactions eligible for the temporary general license established by this final rule. For example, the authority of NLR or a license exception that was available on or before May 16, 2019, may be used pursuant to this temporary general license if the underlying export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) meets the temporary general license conditions and is limited in scope to the support of one or more of activities described in clauses 1–4 above. This temporary general license does not relieve persons of other obligations under the EAR, including but not limited to licensing requirements to the PRC or elsewhere and/or the requirements of the part 744 of the EAR, such as those specified in §§ 744.2, 744.3 and 744.4 of the EAR. This temporary general license does not authorize any activities or transactions involving Country Group E countries or persons. For example, this temporary general license does not relieve persons of their obligations under General Prohibition 5 in § 736.2(b)(5) of the EAR which provides that, ‘‘you may not, without a license, knowingly export or reexport any item subject to the EAR to an end-user or end-use that is prohibited by part 744 of the EAR.’’ BIS strongly urges the use of Supplement VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:56 May 21, 2019 Jkt 247001 No. 3 to part 732 of the EAR, ‘‘BIS’s ‘Know Your Customer’ Guidance and Red Flags,’’ when persons are involved in transactions that are subject to the EAR. Required Certification Statement and Change to EAR Recordkeeping Requirement Also in new Supplement No. 7 to part 744, this final rule includes a paragraph (d) (Certification statement). The certification statement is required to be made by the exporter, reexport, or transferor prior to making an export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) pursuant to this Temporary General License. The certification statement must be kept for recordkeeping purposes by the exporter, reexporter, or transferor. As a conforming change, in part 762 (Recordkeeping), this final rule adds a new paragraph (b)(55) to reference the Certification statement required in order to rely in the Temporary General License. Export Control Reform Act of 2018 On August 13, 2018, the President signed into law the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which included the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) (Title XVII, Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115–232 (132 Stat. 2210); 50 U.S.C. 4801 et seq.), which provides the legal basis for BIS’s principal authorities and serves as the authority under which BIS issues this rule. As set forth in section 1768 of ECRA, all delegations, rules, regulations, orders, determinations, licenses, or other forms of administrative action that have been made, issued, conducted, or allowed to become effective under the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. 4601 et seq.) (as in effect prior to August 13, 2018, and as continued in effect pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) and 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 8, 2018, 83 FR 39871 (August 13, 2018)), or the Export Administration Regulations, and were in effect as of August 13, 2018, shall continue in effect according to their terms until modified, superseded, set aside, or revoked under the authority of ECRA. Rulemaking Requirements 1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 23469 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. This rule is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under Executive Order 12866. 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to nor 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 42.5 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. Pursuant to section 1762 of ECRA, this action is exempt from the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requirements for notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date. 5. 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.

Final rule; rescission of regulations. AGENCY: ACTION: The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) is rescinding several Model Forms and Disclosures promulgated pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (‘‘FCRA’’) that it has determined are no longer necessary. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act transferred rulemaking authority associated with these forms and disclosures to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (‘‘Bureau’’ or ‘‘CFPB’’). Given the CFPB’s 2018 updates to its model forms and disclosures, the Commission has determined that rescinding several of its model forms and disclosures would reduce confusion. The Commission is also making conforming amendments to address references to the updated model forms and disclosures in related rules. DATES: This action is effective May 22, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to Part 744) identifies entities 
and other persons reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a 
significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary 
to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United 
States. The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of 
representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, 
Energy and, where appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions 
regarding additions to, removals from, or other modifications to the 
Entity List. The ERC makes all decisions to add an entry to the Entity 
List by majority vote and all decisions to remove or modify an entry by 
unanimous vote.
    This final rule does not amend the Entity List, but modifies the 
license requirement for the sixty-nine entries added to the Entity List 
in the May 16, 2019, final rule entitled ``Addition of Entities to the 
Entity List,'' as described further below, by adding a temporary 
general license for the specified entities.

Addition of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and Sixty-Eight Related 
Entities to the Entity List

    BIS added Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) and sixty-eight of 
its non-U.S. affiliates to the Entity List on May 16, 2019. Details 
regarding the scope of the listing are in the final rule titled 
``Addition to the Entity List,'' effective May 16, 2019, and scheduled 
to publish in the May 21, 2019, issue of the Federal Register. The 
sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates are also listed in Supplement No. 7 to 
part 744--Temporary General License.

Addition of Temporary General License

    This final rule amends the EAR by adding Supplement No. 7 to Part 
744 to create a Temporary General License that returns in part the 
prior requirements through August 14, 2019. In this final rule, 
pursuant to Supplement No. 5 to part 744 of the Export Administration 
Regulations (EAR), BIS is modifying the effect of the sixty-nine 
entries on the Entity List by adding a temporary general license to 
temporarily authorize, as specified below, engagement in transactions, 
involving the export, reexport, and transfer (in-country) of items 
subject to the EAR to Huawei and its sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates 
subject to the conditions described below.
    a. This temporary general license is effective from the date of 
this Authorization, May 20, 2019, through August 19, 2019.
    b. This temporary general license does not relieve persons of other 
obligations under the EAR, including but not limited to licensing 
requirements to the People's Republic of China (PRC or China) or 
elsewhere and/or the requirements of part 744 of the EAR. This 
authorization does not authorize any activities or transactions 
involving Country Group E countries (i.e., Cuba, Iran, North Korea, 
Sudan, and Syria) or persons.
    c. With the exception of the transactions explicitly authorized by 
this temporary general license, exports, reexports, and transfers (in-
country) continue to require a license pursuant to the license 
requirement set forth in Supplement No. 4 to part 744 for Huawei and 
the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates and will be reviewed under the 
license review policy for those entities.
    This temporary general license allows, from May 20, 2019, through 
August 19, 2019, the following:
    1. Continued Operation of Existing Networks and Equipment: BIS 
authorizes engagement in transactions, subject to other provisions of 
the EAR, necessary to maintain and support existing and currently fully 
operational networks and equipment, including software updates and 
patches, subject to legally binding contracts and agreements executed 
between Huawei and third parties or the sixty-eight non-U.S. Huawei 
affiliates and third parties on or before May 16, 2019.
    2. Support to Existing Handsets: BIS authorizes engagement in 
transactions, subject to other provisions of the EAR, necessary to 
provide service and support, including software updates or patches, to 
existing Huawei handsets that were available to the public on or before 
May 16, 2019.
    3. Cybersecurity Research and Vulnerability Disclosure: BIS 
authorizes, subject to other provisions of the EAR, the disclosure to 
Huawei and/or the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates of information 
regarding security vulnerabilities in items owned, possessed, or 
controlled by Huawei or any of the sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates

[[Page 23469]]

when related to the process of providing ongoing security research 
critical to maintaining the integrity and reliability of existing and 
currently fully operational networks and equipment, as well as 
handsets.
    4. Engagement as Necessary for Development of 5G Standards by a 
Duly Recognized Standards Body: BIS authorizes, subject to other 
provisions of the EAR, engagement with Huawei and/or the sixty-eight 
non-U.S. affiliates as necessary for the development of 5G standards as 
part of a duly recognized international standards body (e.g., IEEE--
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers; IETF--internet 
Engineering Task Force; ISO--International Organization for Standards; 
ITU--International Telecommunications Union; ETSI- European 
Telecommunications Standards Institute; 3GPP--3rd Generation 
Partnership Project; TIA--Telecommunications Industry Association; and 
GSMA, a.k.a., GSM Association, Global System for Mobile 
Communications).
    The licensing and other policies of the EAR regarding exports, 
reexports, and transfers (in-country) to Huawei and sixty-eight of its 
non-U.S. affiliates that were in effect prior to their addition to the 
Entity List on May 16, 2019, are available for exports, reexports, and 
transfers (in-country) for transactions eligible for the temporary 
general license established by this final rule.
    For example, the authority of NLR or a license exception that was 
available on or before May 16, 2019, may be used pursuant to this 
temporary general license if the underlying export, reexport, or 
transfer (in-country) meets the temporary general license conditions 
and is limited in scope to the support of one or more of activities 
described in clauses 1-4 above.
    This temporary general license does not relieve persons of other 
obligations under the EAR, including but not limited to licensing 
requirements to the PRC or elsewhere and/or the requirements of the 
part 744 of the EAR, such as those specified in Sec. Sec.  
[thinsp]744.2, 744.3 and 744.4 of the EAR. This temporary general 
license does not authorize any activities or transactions involving 
Country Group E countries or persons. For example, this temporary 
general license does not relieve persons of their obligations under 
General Prohibition 5 in Sec.  [thinsp]736.2(b)(5) of the EAR which 
provides that, ``you may not, without a license, knowingly export or 
reexport any item subject to the EAR to an end-user or end-use that is 
prohibited by part 744 of the EAR.'' BIS strongly urges the use of 
Supplement No. 3 to part 732 of the EAR, ``BIS's `Know Your Customer' 
Guidance and Red Flags,'' when persons are involved in transactions 
that are subject to the EAR.

Required Certification Statement and Change to EAR Recordkeeping 
Requirement

    Also in new Supplement No. 7 to part 744, this final rule includes 
a paragraph (d) (Certification statement). The certification statement 
is required to be made by the exporter, reexport, or transferor prior 
to making an export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) pursuant to 
this Temporary General License. The certification statement must be 
kept for recordkeeping purposes by the exporter, reexporter, or 
transferor.
    As a conforming change, in part 762 (Recordkeeping), this final 
rule adds a new paragraph (b)(55) to reference the Certification 
statement required in order to rely in the Temporary General License.

Export Control Reform Act of 2018

    On August 13, 2018, the President signed into law the John S. 
McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which 
included the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) (Title XVII, 
Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115-232 (132 Stat. 2210); 50 U.S.C. 4801 et 
seq.), which provides the legal basis for BIS's principal authorities 
and serves as the authority under which BIS issues this rule. As set 
forth in section 1768 of ECRA, all delegations, rules, regulations, 
orders, determinations, licenses, or other forms of administrative 
action that have been made, issued, conducted, or allowed to become 
effective under the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. 4601 
et seq.) (as in effect prior to August 13, 2018, and as continued in 
effect pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) and 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 8, 2018, 83 FR 39871 (August 13, 2018)), or the Export 
Administration Regulations, and were in effect as of August 13, 2018, 
shall continue in effect according to their terms until modified, 
superseded, set aside, or revoked under the authority of ECRA.

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. This rule is not an Executive Order 
13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under 
Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to nor 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 
42.5 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 
[email protected], 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. Pursuant to section 1762 of ECRA, this action is exempt from the 
Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requirements for notice of 
proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in 
effective date.
    5. 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.
