Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 28, 2020 / Rules and Regulations air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending RNAV route T–333. The route changes are outlined below. T–333: T–333 is amended from the Fellows, CA, (FLW) VOR/DME to the BORED, CA, waypoint. The FAA extended the route to the southeast by 130 miles to connect to the Fellows CA, VOR/DME NAVAID, which is the starting point of the RNAV route. The extension is needed for navigation in the low altitude structure as V–485 is being gapped in a separate rulemaking action [Docket No. FAA–2018–0850 (83 FR 63603; December 11, 2018)] due to the decommissioning of the Priest, CA, VOR. The amendment removed the KLIDE, CA, FIX due to turn criteria for RNAV procedure development in order to rejoin T–333 at the BORED, CA, FIX. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action of modifying RNAV route T–333 in the western United States qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5– 6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action is not expected to result in any significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically The Amendment * Issued in Washington, DC, on April 23, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES Background In December 2017, the White House issued the National Security Strategy of the United States of America (NSS), which states that ‘‘The United States will respond to the growing political, economic, and military competitions we face around the world.’’ The NSS, which can be found at www.whitehouse.gov, discusses four pillars—protect the homeland, promote American prosperity, preserve peace through strength, and advance American influence. The strategy notes that ‘‘China and Russia challenge American power, influence, and interests, attempting to erode American security and prosperity. They are determined to make economies less free and less fair, to grow their militaries, and to control information and data to repress their societies and expand their influence.’’ The NSS further notes, ‘‘Both China and Russia support the dictatorship in Venezuela and are seeking to expand military linkages and arms sales across the region.’’ BIS is publishing this rule to support the national security and foreign policy objectives of the United States by broadening the United States government’s visibility into and ability to deny or condition exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) involving certain items on the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to part 774 of the Export Administration Regulations) that are destined to military end users or end uses in China, Russia, or Venezuela. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Apr 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 Expansion of Military End Use and End User Controls End use (how will the product ultimately be used) and the end user (who will ultimately use the product) are important factors when determining license requirements. Examples of prohibited end use include restrictions on certain nuclear end uses, use of products in weapons of mass destruction, and use of microprocessors for military end use. For a full list of end-use and end-user prohibitions under the EAR, see Part 744 of the EAR. The EAR’s current definition of military end users includes the army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard, plus the national guard/police, government intelligence and reconnaissance organizations; this rule does not modify that definition. The EAR’s current definition of military end use refers both to direct use (for parts, components or subsystems of weapons and other defense articles) and indirect use (weapon design and development, testing, repair and maintenance). This rule broadens the definition of military end use beyond any item for the ‘‘use,’’ ‘‘development,’’ or ‘‘production’’ to include any item that supports or contributes to the operation, installation, maintenance, repair, overhaul, refurbishing, ‘‘development,’’ or ‘‘production,’’ of military items. On June 19, 2007, BIS published a rule imposing a license requirement on exports, reexports, and transfers (incountry) of certain items intended for military end use in China (72 FR 33646), in large part due to a continued lack of transparency regarding products and technologies intended for military end use as China strengthened its military activities and capabilities. On September 17, 2014, BIS expanded these license requirements to include military end uses and end users in Russia (79 FR 55608), to address that country’s continuing policy of destabilization in Ukraine and occupation of Crimea. On November 7, 2014, BIS expanded these license requirements to include military end uses and end users in Venezuela (79 FR 66288) as the actions and policies of the Venezuelan military, including its continued and increased repression and complicity in human rights violations, undermined democratic processes and institutions and thereby constituted an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. This rule further expands license requirements for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of items intended for military end use or military end users in the People’s Republic of China PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 (China), Russia, or Venezuela by broadening the license requirement in § 744.21 of the Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR parts 730–774) (EAR) to include military end users in China. This expansion will require increased diligence with respect to the evaluation of end users in China, particularly in view of China’s widespread civil-military integration. In addition, this rule broadens the scope of the items subject to license requirements in § 744.21 by adding items to the list of items subject to the military end-use and end-user license requirements in Supplement No. 2 to part 744. Specifically, this rule adds the following Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) in the categories of materials processing, electronics, telecommunications, information security, sensors and lasers, and propulsion to the supplement: 2A290, 2A291, 2B999, 2D290, 3A991, 3A992, 3A999, 3B991, 3B992, 3C992, 3D991, 5B991, 5A992, 5D992, 6A991, 6A996, and 9B990. Additionally, this rule expands the range of items under ECCNs 3A992, 8A992, and 9A991 included in Supplement No. 2 to part 744. This rule adopts a license review policy of presumption of denial in § 744.21(e). This change makes the review policy consistent with the review policy for certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of microprocessors and associated software and technologies for military end uses and end users in § 744.17(c). Further, this rule broadens the definition of ‘‘military end use’’ by identifying each element of the definition of ‘‘use’’ so that any one of the six elements, standing alone, is sufficient. As amended, the definition of ‘‘military end use’’ in § 744.21(f) will include any item that supports or contributes to the operation, installation, maintenance, repair, overhaul, refurbishing, ‘‘development,’’ or ‘‘production,’’ of military items described on the United States Munitions List (International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR 126.1)), or items classified under ECCNs ending in ‘‘A018’’ or under ‘‘600 series’’ ECCNs. Clarification of Controls on ‘‘600 series’’ .y and 9x515.y Items Additionally, to help the public comply with EAR § 744.21, this rule would relocate the existing license requirement for items described in a .y paragraph of a 9x515 or ‘‘600 series’’ ECCN to China, Russia, or Venezuela from § 744.21 to the License Requirements sections of the relevant ECCNs on the CCL. E:\FR\FM\28APR1.SGM 28APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 28, 2020 / Rules and Regulations jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES The license requirement in § 744.21 for ‘‘600 series’’ .y items was imposed in an April 16, 2013 rule that initially implemented ‘‘600 series’’ controls (Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform, 78 FR 22660, at 22723) because such items were presumptively for military end use. The license requirement in § 744.21 for 9x515.y items was imposed in a May 13, 2014 rule that implemented CCL controls on certain spacecraft (Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Control of Spacecraft Systems and Related Items the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML), 79 FR 27418, at 27436), prohibiting the export of all items described in 9A515.y to China. As noted previously, subsequent rules broadened the application of § 744.21 to Russia and Venezuela. This relocation of the existing license requirement from EAR § 744.21 to the CCL would not change its scope, which was intended to result in a license requirement for all 9x515.y or ‘‘600 series’’ .y items to those destinations. Although the rules imposing controls on ‘‘600 series’’ .y and 9x515.y items did not assign a ‘‘reason for control’’ as that term is used on the CCL, BIS believes such items should require a license in order to support U.S. foreign policy to maintain regional stability. Accordingly, the reason for control is regional stability (RS) as described in new EAR § 742.6(a)(7). The associated review policy is described in new § 742.6(b)(8). The license review policy reflects current regional stability policy for ‘‘600’’ series and 9x515 items. The addition of new § 742.6(a)(7) would require redesignation of the following paragraphs in the section (as well as conforming changes): §§ 732.3(b)(4), 734.3(c), 738.1(a)(3), and ECCNs 0A521, 0B521, 0C521, 0D521, 0E521, 9A515, and 9E515. Expansion of Electronic Export Information Filing Requirements Finally, this rule expands Electronic Export Information (EEI) filing requirements in the Automated Export System (AES) for exports to China, Russia, or Venezuela. Existing provisions exempt exporters from both filing EEI for many shipments valued under $2,500 (unless an export license is required) and from entering the ECCN in the EEI when the reason for control is only anti-terrorism (AT). To promote transparency with respect to shipments to these destinations, this rule revises § 758.1 of the EAR to require filing for items destined to China, Russia, or VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Apr 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 Venezuela regardless of the value of the shipment, unless the shipment is eligible for License Exception GOV. In addition, even if no license is required to ship an item to those destinations, the EEI filing must include the correct ECCN regardless of reason for control. Certain exemptions from filing found in both the EAR and Foreign Trade Regulations (see § 758.1(c) of the EAR), such as for personally-owned baggage, are retained in this rule. 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) (50 U.S.C. 4801–4852) that 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 14, 2019, 84 FR 41881 (August 15, 2019)), or the Export Administration Regulations, and are 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, distribute 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 final rule has been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ although not economically significant, under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 23461 2. This final rule is not subject to the requirements of Executive Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 3, 2017) because it is issued with respect to a national security function of the United States. As discussed in the background section, this rule supports the objectives laid out in the National Security Strategy of the United States of America (NSS) by broadening the United States government’s visibility into transactions involving certain items on the CCL and exports, reexports and transfers (incountry) to military end users or end uses in China, Russia, or Venezuela. Specifically, the expansion of controls would enhance the national security of the United States by reducing the risk that exports, reexports, and transfers (incountry) of items subject to the EAR could contribute to the military capability of China, Russia, or Venezuela contrary to U.S. national security interests. It allows the United States government to review transactions involving military end uses or end users in those destinations prior to their completion to mitigate this risk. Therefore, the cost-benefit analysis required pursuant to Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 indicates this rule is intended to improve national security as its primary direct benefit. Accordingly, this rule meets the requirements set forth in the April 5, 2017, OMB guidance implementing Executive Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 3, 2017), regarding what constitutes a regulation issued ‘‘with respect to a national security function of the United States’’ and it is, therefore, exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. 3. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person may be 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 a collection currently approved by OMB under control number 0694– 0088, Simplified Network Application Processing System. This collection includes, among other things, license applications, and carries a burden estimate of 42.5 minutes for a manual or electronic submission for a total burden estimate of 31,878 hours. BIS receives very few license applications for military end uses in China or for military end uses or end users in Russia or Venezuela (approximately two to three annually). BIS believes that the reason for this small number is the E:\FR\FM\28APR1.SGM 28APR1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 23462 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 28, 2020 / Rules and Regulations likelihood that that such applications will be denied. BIS anticipates that broadening the range of items and parties subject to these military end-use and end-user license requirements will increase the number of licenses submitted; however, BIS also believes that, due to continuing likelihood of denials, this increase is not expected to exceed the existing estimates currently associated with OMB control number 0694–0088. Any comments regarding the collection of information associated with this rule, including suggestions for reducing the burden, may be sent 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. 4. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132. 5. Pursuant to § 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. 6. 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. List of Subjects Saving Clause PART 734—SCOPE OF THE EAR Shipments of items removed from license exception eligibility or eligibility for export, reexport or transfer (incountry) without a license as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting carrier, or en route aboard a carrier to a port of export, on June 29, 2020, pursuant to actual orders for exports, reexports and transfers (incountry) to a foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous license exception eligibility or without a license so long as they have been exported, reexported or transferred (in-country) before July 27, 2020. Any such items not actually exported, reexported or transferred (in-country) before midnight, on July 27, 2020 require a license in accordance with this final rule.

Section 744.21 is revised to read as follows: § 744.21 Restrictions on certain ‘military end use’ or ‘military end user’ in the People’s Republic of China, Russia, or Venezuela. (a) General prohibition. In addition to the license requirements for items specified on the Commerce Control List (CCL), you may not export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) any item subject to the EAR listed in Supplement No. 2 to part 744 to the People’s Republic of China (China), Russia, or Venezuela without a license if, at the time of the export, reexport, or transfer (in-country), you have ‘‘knowledge,’’ as defined in § 772.1 of the EAR, that the item is intended, entirely or in part, for a ‘military end use,’ as defined in paragraph (f) of this section, or ‘military end user,’ as defined in paragraph (g) of this section, in China, Russia, or Venezuela. (b) Additional prohibition on those informed by BIS. BIS may inform you either individually by specific notice, through amendment to the EAR published in the Federal Register, or through a separate notice published in the Federal Register, that a license is required for specific exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of any item because there is an unacceptable risk of use in or diversion to a ‘military end use’ or ‘military end user’ in China, Russia, or Venezuela. Specific notice will be given only by, or at the direction of, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Export Administration. When such notice is provided orally, it will be followed by written notice within two working days signed by the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Export Administration or the Deputy Assistant Secretary’s designee. The absence of BIS notification does not excuse the exporter from compliance with the license requirements of paragraph (a) of this section. (c) License exception. Despite the prohibitions described in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section, you may export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) items subject to the EAR under the provisions of License Exception GOV set forth in § 740.11(b)(2)(i) and (ii) of the EAR. (d) License application procedure. When submitting a license application pursuant to this section, you must state in the ‘‘additional information’’ block of the application that ‘‘this application is submitted because of the license E:\FR\FM\28APR1.SGM 28APR1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 23464 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 28, 2020 / Rules and Regulations requirement in § 744.21 of the EAR (Restrictions on a ‘Military End Use’ or ‘Military End User’ in the People’s Republic of China, Russia, or Venezuela).’’ In addition, either in the additional information block of the application or in an attachment to the application, you must include all known information concerning the ‘military end use’ and ‘military end user(s)’ of the item(s). If you submit an attachment with your license application, you must reference the attachment in the ‘‘additional information’’ block of the application. (e) License review standards. (1) Applications to export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) items described in paragraph (a) of this section will be reviewed with a presumption of denial. (2) Applications may be reviewed under chemical and biological weapons, nuclear nonproliferation, or missile technology review policies, as set forth in §§ 742.2(b)(4), 742.3(b)(4), and 742.5(b)(4) of the EAR, if the end use may involve certain proliferation activities. (3) Applications for items requiring a license for any reason that are destined to China, Russia, or Venezuela for a ‘military end use’ or ‘military end user’ also will be subject to the review policy stated in paragraph (e)(1) of this section. (f) Military end use. In this section, ‘military end use’ means: incorporation into a military item described on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) (22 CFR part 121, International Traffic in Arms Regulations); incorporation into items classified under ECCNs ending in ‘‘A018’’ or under ‘‘600 series’’ ECCNs; or any item that supports or contributes to the operation, installation, maintenance, repair, overhaul, refurbishing, ‘‘development,’’ or ‘‘production,’’ of military items described on the USML, or items classified under ECCNs ending in ‘‘A018’’ or under ‘‘600 series’’ ECCNs. (g) Military end user. In this section, the term ‘military end user’ means the national armed services (army, navy, marine, air force, or coast guard), as well as the national guard and national police, government intelligence or reconnaissance organizations, or any person or entity whose actions or functions are intended to support ‘military end uses’ as defined in paragraph (f) of this section. (h) Effects on contracts. Venezuela: Transactions involving the export, reexport, or transfer (in country) of items to or within Venezuela are not subject to the provisions of § 744.21 if the contracts for such transactions were signed prior to November 7, 2014. ■ 12.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) administers U.S. laws, regulations and policies governing the export, reexport, and transfer (in-country) of commodities, software, and technology (collectively ‘‘items’’) falling under the jurisdiction of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) (15 CFR, subchapter C, parts 730 through 774). The primary goal of this effort is to advance U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economic objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system and promoting continued U.S. strategic technology leadership. Items subject to the EAR may require a license or other type of authorization prior to export, reexport, or transfer (in-country). An export license exception is an authorization allowing export, re-export, or transfer (in-country) under stated conditions, of items subject to the EAR otherwise requiring a license. Because there are a number of circumstances under which a license exception may replace the need for a license, there are several types of license exceptions. A description of each of the license exception types, as well as information regarding license exceptions more generally, can be found in 15 CFR part 740, which is available at https:// www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/documents/ regulations-docs/2341-740-2/file. As described in 15 CFR part 736, transactions involving items subject to the EAR must abide by 10 general prohibitions. Obligations under the ten general prohibitions rely largely on knowledge of the details of a transaction, including the classification and destination of the item as well as the end-user and end-use of the item. The EAR contains a definition of ‘‘knowledge’’ and its variants ‘‘know’’, ‘‘reason to know’’, or ‘‘reason to believe’’ in part 772. Removal of License Exception CIV (§ 740.5 Civil End Users) In this final rule, BIS is removing License Exception Civil End-Users (CIV) (§ 740.5 of the EAR), which authorized exports, reexports, and transfers (incountry) of certain national securitycontrolled items, without prior review by BIS provided the exception’s criteria were met, to most civil end users for civil end uses in Country Group D:1.

Expansion of Export, Reexport, and Transfer (in-Country) Controls 
for Military End Use or Military End Users in the People's Republic of 
China, Russia, or Venezuela

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the 
Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to expand license requirements 
on exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of items intended for 
military end use or military end users in the People's Republic of 
China (China), Russia, or Venezuela. Specifically, this rule expands 
the licensing requirements for China to include ``military end users,'' 
in addition to ``military end use.'' It broadens the list of items for 
which the licensing requirements and review policy apply and expands 
the definition of ``military end use.'' Next, it creates a

[[Page 23460]]

new reason for control and the associated review policy for regional 
stability for certain items exported to China, Russia, or Venezuela, 
moving existing text related to this policy. Finally, it adds 
Electronic Export Information filing requirements in the Automated 
Export System for exports to China, Russia, and Venezuela. This rule 
supports the objectives discussed in the National Security Strategy of 
the United States.

DATES: This rule is effective June 29, 2020.

National Security and Technology Transfer Controls, Bureau of Industry 
and Security, Department of Commerce. Phone: (202) 482-0092; Fax: (202)

Use or User'' in the subject line.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In December 2017, the White House issued the National Security 
Strategy of the United States of America (NSS), which states that ``The 
United States will respond to the growing political, economic, and 
military competitions we face around the world.'' The NSS, which can be 
found at www.whitehouse.gov, discusses four pillars--protect the 
homeland, promote American prosperity, preserve peace through strength, 
and advance American influence. The strategy notes that ``China and 
Russia challenge American power, influence, and interests, attempting 
to erode American security and prosperity. They are determined to make 
economies less free and less fair, to grow their militaries, and to 
control information and data to repress their societies and expand 
their influence.'' The NSS further notes, ``Both China and Russia 
support the dictatorship in Venezuela and are seeking to expand 
military linkages and arms sales across the region.''
    BIS is publishing this rule to support the national security and 
foreign policy objectives of the United States by broadening the United 
States government's visibility into and ability to deny or condition 
exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) involving certain items 
on the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to part 774 of the 
Export Administration Regulations) that are destined to military end 
users or end uses in China, Russia, or Venezuela.

Expansion of Military End Use and End User Controls

    End use (how will the product ultimately be used) and the end user 
(who will ultimately use the product) are important factors when 
determining license requirements. Examples of prohibited end use 
include restrictions on certain nuclear end uses, use of products in 
weapons of mass destruction, and use of microprocessors for military 
end use. For a full list of end-use and end-user prohibitions under the 
EAR, see Part 744 of the EAR. The EAR's current definition of military 
end users includes the army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard, 
plus the national guard/police, government intelligence and 
reconnaissance organizations; this rule does not modify that 
definition. The EAR's current definition of military end use refers 
both to direct use (for parts, components or subsystems of weapons and 
other defense articles) and indirect use (weapon design and 
development, testing, repair and maintenance). This rule broadens the 
definition of military end use beyond any item for the ``use,'' 
``development,'' or ``production'' to include any item that supports or 
contributes to the operation, installation, maintenance, repair, 
overhaul, refurbishing, ``development,'' or ``production,'' of military 
items.
    On June 19, 2007, BIS published a rule imposing a license 
requirement on exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of 
certain items intended for military end use in China (72 FR 33646), in 
large part due to a continued lack of transparency regarding products 
and technologies intended for military end use as China strengthened 
its military activities and capabilities. On September 17, 2014, BIS 
expanded these license requirements to include military end uses and 
end users in Russia (79 FR 55608), to address that country's continuing 
policy of destabilization in Ukraine and occupation of Crimea. On 
November 7, 2014, BIS expanded these license requirements to include 
military end uses and end users in Venezuela (79 FR 66288) as the 
actions and policies of the Venezuelan military, including its 
continued and increased repression and complicity in human rights 
violations, undermined democratic processes and institutions and 
thereby constituted an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States.
    This rule further expands license requirements for exports, 
reexports, and transfers (in-country) of items intended for military 
end use or military end users in the People's Republic of China 
(China), Russia, or Venezuela by broadening the license requirement in 
Sec.  744.21 of the Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR parts 
730-774) (EAR) to include military end users in China. This expansion 
will require increased diligence with respect to the evaluation of end 
users in China, particularly in view of China's widespread civil-
military integration.
    In addition, this rule broadens the scope of the items subject to 
license requirements in Sec.  744.21 by adding items to the list of 
items subject to the military end-use and end-user license requirements 
in Supplement No. 2 to part 744. Specifically, this rule adds the 
following Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) in the 
categories of materials processing, electronics, telecommunications, 
information security, sensors and lasers, and propulsion to the 
supplement: 2A290, 2A291, 2B999, 2D290, 3A991, 3A992, 3A999, 3B991, 
3B992, 3C992, 3D991, 5B991, 5A992, 5D992, 6A991, 6A996, and 9B990. 
Additionally, this rule expands the range of items under ECCNs 3A992, 
8A992, and 9A991 included in Supplement No. 2 to part 744.
    This rule adopts a license review policy of presumption of denial 
in Sec.  744.21(e). This change makes the review policy consistent with 
the review policy for certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-
country) of microprocessors and associated software and technologies 
for military end uses and end users in Sec.  744.17(c). Further, this 
rule broadens the definition of ``military end use'' by identifying 
each element of the definition of ``use'' so that any one of the six 
elements, standing alone, is sufficient. As amended, the definition of 
``military end use'' in Sec.  744.21(f) will include any item that 
supports or contributes to the operation, installation, maintenance, 
repair, overhaul, refurbishing, ``development,'' or ``production,'' of 
military items described on the United States Munitions List 
(International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR 126.1)), or items 
classified under ECCNs ending in ``A018'' or under ``600 series'' 
ECCNs.

Clarification of Controls on ``600 series'' .y and 9x515.y Items

    Additionally, to help the public comply with EAR Sec.  744.21, this 
rule would relocate the existing license requirement for items 
described in a .y paragraph of a 9x515 or ``600 series'' ECCN to China, 
Russia, or Venezuela from Sec.  744.21 to the License Requirements 
sections of the relevant ECCNs on the CCL.

[[Page 23461]]

    The license requirement in Sec.  744.21 for ``600 series'' .y items 
was imposed in an April 16, 2013 rule that initially implemented ``600 
series'' controls (Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: 
Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform, 78 FR 22660, at 22723) 
because such items were presumptively for military end use. The license 
requirement in Sec.  744.21 for 9x515.y items was imposed in a May 13, 
2014 rule that implemented CCL controls on certain spacecraft 
(Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Control of 
Spacecraft Systems and Related Items the President Determines No Longer 
Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML), 79 FR 
27418, at 27436), prohibiting the export of all items described in 
9A515.y to China. As noted previously, subsequent rules broadened the 
application of Sec.  744.21 to Russia and Venezuela. This relocation of 
the existing license requirement from EAR Sec.  744.21 to the CCL would 
not change its scope, which was intended to result in a license 
requirement for all 9x515.y or ``600 series'' .y items to those 
destinations. Although the rules imposing controls on ``600 series'' .y 
and 9x515.y items did not assign a ``reason for control'' as that term 
is used on the CCL, BIS believes such items should require a license in 
order to support U.S. foreign policy to maintain regional stability. 
Accordingly, the reason for control is regional stability (RS) as 
described in new EAR Sec.  742.6(a)(7). The associated review policy is 
described in new Sec.  742.6(b)(8). The license review policy reflects 
current regional stability policy for ``600'' series and 9x515 items. 
The addition of new Sec.  742.6(a)(7) would require redesignation of 
the following paragraphs in the section (as well as conforming 
changes): Sec. Sec.  732.3(b)(4), 734.3(c), 738.1(a)(3), and ECCNs 
0A521, 0B521, 0C521, 0D521, 0E521, 9A515, and 9E515.

Expansion of Electronic Export Information Filing Requirements

    Finally, this rule expands Electronic Export Information (EEI) 
filing requirements in the Automated Export System (AES) for exports to 
China, Russia, or Venezuela. Existing provisions exempt exporters from 
both filing EEI for many shipments valued under $2,500 (unless an 
export license is required) and from entering the ECCN in the EEI when 
the reason for control is only anti-terrorism (AT). To promote 
transparency with respect to shipments to these destinations, this rule 
revises Sec.  758.1 of the EAR to require filing for items destined to 
China, Russia, or Venezuela regardless of the value of the shipment, 
unless the shipment is eligible for License Exception GOV. In addition, 
even if no license is required to ship an item to those destinations, 
the EEI filing must include the correct ECCN regardless of reason for 
control. Certain exemptions from filing found in both the EAR and 
Foreign Trade Regulations (see Sec.  758.1(c) of the EAR), such as for 
personally-owned baggage, are retained in this rule.

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) (50 U.S.C. 4801-
4852) that 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 14, 
2019, 84 FR 41881 (August 15, 2019)), or the Export Administration 
Regulations, and are 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, distribute 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 final rule has been designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' although not economically significant, under 
section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866.
    2. This final rule is not subject to the requirements of Executive 
Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 3, 2017) because it is issued with 
respect to a national security function of the United States. As 
discussed in the background section, this rule supports the objectives 
laid out in the National Security Strategy of the United States of 
America (NSS) by broadening the United States government's visibility 
into transactions involving certain items on the CCL and exports, 
reexports and transfers (in-country) to military end users or end uses 
in China, Russia, or Venezuela. Specifically, the expansion of controls 
would enhance the national security of the United States by reducing 
the risk that exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) of items 
subject to the EAR could contribute to the military capability of 
China, Russia, or Venezuela contrary to U.S. national security 
interests. It allows the United States government to review 
transactions involving military end uses or end users in those 
destinations prior to their completion to mitigate this risk. 
Therefore, the cost-benefit analysis required pursuant to Executive 
Orders 13563 and 12866 indicates this rule is intended to improve 
national security as its primary direct benefit. Accordingly, this rule 
meets the requirements set forth in the April 5, 2017, OMB guidance 
implementing Executive Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 3, 2017), 
regarding what constitutes a regulation issued ``with respect to a 
national security function of the United States'' and it is, therefore, 
exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.
    3. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person may be 
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 a 
collection currently approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, 
Simplified Network Application Processing System. This collection 
includes, among other things, license applications, and carries a 
burden estimate of 42.5 minutes for a manual or electronic submission 
for a total burden estimate of 31,878 hours. BIS receives very few 
license applications for military end uses in China or for military end 
uses or end users in Russia or Venezuela (approximately two to three 
annually). BIS believes that the reason for this small number is the

[[Page 23462]]

likelihood that that such applications will be denied. BIS anticipates 
that broadening the range of items and parties subject to these 
military end-use and end-user license requirements will increase the 
number of licenses submitted; however, BIS also believes that, due to 
continuing likelihood of denials, this increase is not expected to 
exceed the existing estimates currently associated with OMB control 
number 0694-0088.
    Any comments regarding the collection of information associated 
with this rule, including suggestions for reducing the burden, may be 
sent to Jasmeet K. Seehra, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by 
email to [email protected], or by fax to (202) 395-7285.
    4. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.
    5. Pursuant to Sec.  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.
    6. 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.

Saving Clause

    Shipments of items removed from license exception eligibility or 
eligibility for export, reexport or transfer (in-country) without a 
license as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for 
loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting carrier, or en route 
aboard a carrier to a port of export, on June 29, 2020, pursuant to 
actual orders for exports, reexports and transfers (in-country) to a 
foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous 
license exception eligibility or without a license so long as they have 
been exported, reexported or transferred (in-country) before July 27, 
2020. Any such items not actually exported, reexported or transferred 
(in-country) before midnight, on July 27, 2020 require a license in 
accordance with this final rule.

0E501, 0E504, and 0E505 items when there is reason to believe the 
transaction involves criminal organizations, rebel groups, street 
gangs, or other similar groups or individuals, that may be disruptive 
to regional stability, including within individual countries, will be 
subject to a policy of denial.
* * * * *
    (8) China, Russia, or Venezuela. Applications to export or reexport 
items described in paragraph (a)(7) of this section to China, Russia, 
or Venezuela will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine 
whether the transaction is contrary to the national security or foreign 
policy interests of the United States, including the foreign policy 
interest of promoting the observance of human rights throughout the 
world. Such applications will also be reviewed consistent with United 
States arms embargo policies in Sec.  126.1 of the ITAR (22 CFR 126.1) 
if destined to a country set forth in Country Group D:5 in Supplement 
No. 1 to part 740 of the EAR. When destined to China, items classified

11. Section 744.21 is revised to read as follows:


Sec.  744.21   Restrictions on certain `military end use' or `military 
end user' in the People's Republic of China, Russia, or Venezuela.

    (a) General prohibition. In addition to the license requirements 
for items specified on the Commerce Control List (CCL), you may not 
export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) any item subject to the EAR 
listed in Supplement No. 2 to part 744 to the People's Republic of 
China (China), Russia, or Venezuela without a license if, at the time 
of the export, reexport, or transfer (in-country), you have 
``knowledge,'' as defined in Sec.  772.1 of the EAR, that the item is 
intended, entirely or in part, for a `military end use,' as defined in 
paragraph (f) of this section, or `military end user,' as defined in 
paragraph (g) of this section, in China, Russia, or Venezuela.
    (b) Additional prohibition on those informed by BIS. BIS may inform 
you either individually by specific notice, through amendment to the 
EAR published in the Federal Register, or through a separate notice 
published in the Federal Register, that a license is required for 
specific exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) of any item 
because there is an unacceptable risk of use in or diversion to a 
`military end use' or `military end user' in China, Russia, or 
Venezuela. Specific notice will be given only by, or at the direction 
of, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Export Administration. When such 
notice is provided orally, it will be followed by written notice within 
two working days signed by the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Export 
Administration or the Deputy Assistant Secretary's designee. The 
absence of BIS notification does not excuse the exporter from 
compliance with the license requirements of paragraph (a) of this 
section.
    (c) License exception. Despite the prohibitions described in 
paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section, you may export, reexport, or 
transfer (in-country) items subject to the EAR under the provisions of 
License Exception GOV set forth in Sec.  740.11(b)(2)(i) and (ii) of 
the EAR.
    (d) License application procedure. When submitting a license 
application pursuant to this section, you must state in the 
``additional information'' block of the application that ``this 
application is submitted because of the license

[[Page 23464]]

requirement in Sec.  744.21 of the EAR (Restrictions on a `Military End 
Use' or `Military End User' in the People's Republic of China, Russia, 
or Venezuela).'' In addition, either in the additional information 
block of the application or in an attachment to the application, you 
must include all known information concerning the `military end use' 
and `military end user(s)' of the item(s). If you submit an attachment 
with your license application, you must reference the attachment in the 
``additional information'' block of the application.
    (e) License review standards. (1) Applications to export, reexport, 
or transfer (in-country) items described in paragraph (a) of this 
section will be reviewed with a presumption of denial.
    (2) Applications may be reviewed under chemical and biological 
weapons, nuclear nonproliferation, or missile technology review 
policies, as set forth in Sec. Sec.  742.2(b)(4), 742.3(b)(4), and 
742.5(b)(4) of the EAR, if the end use may involve certain 
proliferation activities.
    (3) Applications for items requiring a license for any reason that 
are destined to China, Russia, or Venezuela for a `military end use' or 
`military end user' also will be subject to the review policy stated in 
paragraph (e)(1) of this section.
    (f) Military end use. In this section, `military end use' means: 
incorporation into a military item described on the U.S. Munitions List 
(USML) (22 CFR part 121, International Traffic in Arms Regulations); 
incorporation into items classified under ECCNs ending in ``A018'' or 
under ``600 series'' ECCNs; or any item that supports or contributes to 
the operation, installation, maintenance, repair, overhaul, 
refurbishing, ``development,'' or ``production,'' of military items 
described on the USML, or items classified under ECCNs ending in 
``A018'' or under ``600 series'' ECCNs.
    (g) Military end user. In this section, the term `military end 
user' means the national armed services (army, navy, marine, air force, 
or coast guard), as well as the national guard and national police, 
government intelligence or reconnaissance organizations, or any person 
or entity whose actions or functions are intended to support `military 
end uses' as defined in paragraph (f) of this section.
    (h) Effects on contracts. Venezuela: Transactions involving the 
export, reexport, or transfer (in country) of items to or within 
Venezuela are not subject to the provisions of Sec.  744.21 if the 
contracts for such transactions were signed prior to November 7, 2014.
