VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Nov 09, 2020 Jkt 253001 Title: Import, End-User, Delivery Verification Certificates and Firearms Entry Clearance Requirements. OMB Control Number: 0694–0093. Form Number(s): BIS–645P, BIS– 647P. Type of Request: Regular submission, extension of a current information collection. Number of Respondents: 11,776. Average Hours per Response: 1 to 30 minutes. Burden Hours: 1,630. Needs and Uses: This collection of information addresses three activities: (1) Import Certificates/End Use Certificates, (2) Delivery Verification, and (3) Firearms Entry Clearance Requirements. Import Certificates or End-User Certificates (IC/EUC)—The IC/EUC, BIS–645P, is obtained by the foreign importer and transmitted to the U.S. exporter. They are issued by the government of the country of ultimate destination to exercise legal control over the disposition of the items covered by the IC/EUC. The control exercised by the government issuing the IC/EUC is in addition to the conditions and restrictions placed on the transaction by BIS. Delivery Verification—The Delivery Verification Certificate (DV) is required by BIS as part of its export control program. The license holder is responsible for having the ultimate consignee complete the BIS–647P, Delivery Verification Certificate Form when the goods are delivered. BIS uses the DV procedure on an ‘‘as needed’’ basis. The DV is usually required when there is suspicion of violation of the EAR. Therefore, if the exporter cannot supply the DV, BIS must be notified to determine if an exception is legitimate. Otherwise, the exporter would be in violation of the EAR. Firearms Entry Clearance Requirements—On January 23, 2020, The Department of Commerce issued a final rule that described how articles the President determines no longer warrant control under the United States Munitions List (USML) Category I— Firearms, Close Assault Weapons and Combat Shotguns; Category II—Guns and Armament; and Category III— Ammunition/Ordnance would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL). This final rule, which became effective on March 9, 2020, was published in conjunction with a final rule on Categories I, II, and III from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). This entry clearance requirement is necessary due to the changes by the President in determining that certain PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71605 items no longer warrant control under United States Munitions List (USML) Category I—Firearms, Close Assault Weapons and Combat Shotguns; Category II—Guns and Armament; and Category III—Ammunition/Ordnance would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL). As the State Department previously collected this same type of information, the Department of Commerce controls the CCL and must now take over this collection of information. Section 758.10 Entry clearance requirements for temporary imports will specify the EAR procedures for temporary imports and subsequent exports. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: On Occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: §§ 748.9, 748.10, 748.12, 748.14, Part 748 Supplement No. 5, 758.10, 762.5(d), 762.6, 764.2(g)(2), and of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

    Import Certificates or End-User Certificates (IC/EUC)--The IC/EUC,

the items covered by the IC/EUC. The control exercised by the 
government issuing the IC/EUC is in addition to the conditions and 
restrictions placed on the transaction by BIS.
    Delivery Verification--The Delivery Verification Certificate (DV) 
is required by BIS as part of its export control program. The license 
holder is responsible for having the ultimate consignee complete the 
BIS-647P, Delivery Verification Certificate Form when the goods are 
delivered. BIS uses the DV procedure on an ``as needed'' basis. The DV 
is usually required when there is suspicion of violation of the EAR. 
Therefore, if the exporter cannot supply the DV, BIS must be notified 
to determine if an exception is legitimate. Otherwise, the exporter 
would be in violation of the EAR.

Close Assault Weapons and Combat Shotguns; Category II--Guns and 
Armament; and Category III--Ammunition/Ordnance would be controlled
