As published on May 22, 2019 (84 FR 22961), and as revised and clarified by a final rule published on August 21, 2019 (84 FR 43493), any exports, reexports, or in-country transfers of items subject to the EAR to any of the listed Huawei entities as of the effective date they were added to the Entity List continue to require a license, with the exception of transactions explicitly authorized by the temporary general license and eligible for export, reexport, or transfer (in-country) prior to May 16, 2019 without a license or under a license exception. License applications will continue to be reviewed under a presumption of denial, as stated in the Entity List entries for the listed Huawei entities. No persons are relieved of other obligations under the EAR, including but not limited to licensing requirements to the People’s Republic of China (PRC or China) or other destinations and the requirements of part 744 of the EAR. The temporary general license also does not authorize any activities or transactions involving Country Group E countries (i.e., Cuba, E:\FR\FM\18MYR1.SGM 18MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 96 / Monday, May 18, 2020 / Rules and Regulations Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) or foreign nationals. Extension of Validity At this time, the U.S. Government has decided to extend the temporary general license until August 13, 2020. In order to implement this U.S. Government decision, this final rule revises the temporary general license to remove the date of May 15, 2020 and substitutes the date of August 13, 2020 in three places in Supplement No. 7 to part 744: The introductory text; paragraph (b)(1); and paragraph (c). jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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). ECRA 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 were made, issued, conducted, or allowed to become effective under the Export Administration Act of 1979 (previously, 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.)) 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:02 May 15, 2020 Jkt 250001 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 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    As published on May 22, 2019 (84 FR 23468), extended and amended 
through a final rule published on August 21, 2019 (84 FR 43487), and as 
currently extended through a final rule published on March 12, 2020 (85 
FR 14416), this temporary general license authorizes certain 
activities, including those necessary for the continued operations of 
existing networks and equipment as well as the support of existing 
mobile services, including cybersecurity research critical to 
maintaining the integrity and reliability of existing and fully 
operational networks and equipment. Exporters, reexporters, and 
transferors are required to maintain certifications and other records, 
to be made available when requested by BIS, regarding their use of the 
temporary general license.
    As published on May 22, 2019 (84 FR 22961), and as revised and 
clarified by a final rule published on August 21, 2019 (84 FR 43493), 
any exports, reexports, or in-country transfers of items subject to the 
EAR to any of the listed Huawei entities as of the effective date they 
were added to the Entity List continue to require a license, with the 
exception of transactions explicitly authorized by the temporary 
general license and eligible for export, reexport, or transfer (in-
country) prior to May 16, 2019 without a license or under a license 
exception. License applications will continue to be reviewed under a 
presumption of denial, as stated in the Entity List entries for the 
listed Huawei entities. No persons are relieved of other obligations 
under the EAR, including but not limited to licensing requirements to 
the People's Republic of China (PRC or China) or other destinations and 
the requirements of part 744 of the EAR. The temporary general license 
also does not authorize any activities or transactions involving 
Country Group E countries (i.e., Cuba,

[[Page 29611]]

Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) or foreign nationals.

Extension of Validity

    At this time, the U.S. Government has decided to extend the 
temporary general license until August 13, 2020. In order to implement 
this U.S. Government decision, this final rule revises the temporary 
general license to remove the date of May 15, 2020 and substitutes the 
date of August 13, 2020 in three places in Supplement No. 7 to part 
744: The introductory text; paragraph (b)(1); and paragraph (c).

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). ECRA 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 were made, issued, conducted, or allowed to become 
effective under the Export Administration Act of 1979 (previously, 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.)) 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 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 
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.
